In an effort to fulfill Pima Community College's OER course development goals for Achieving the Dream, the presenters and members of their Center for Learning Technology team recently created two first-year writing courses utilizing only OER content. This presentation will provide a practical guide for instructors seeking to transition to an OER-only or OER-supplemented first-year composition course within a four-month timeline. The presentation will cover sharing and brainstorming strategies, aligning outcomes, designing assignments, identifying relevant OER resources, evaluating OER content, and modifying OER content to support course learning outcomes. The presenters will also discuss benefits and best practices related to teaching first-year composition with OER content, as well as ways to work with instructional designers and share OER content with other faculty and throughout the college. This presentation relates directly to the follow conference themes: Models Supporting the Adoption, Use, or Sustaining of OER in Higher Education, Open Pedagogy and Open Educational Practices, and The Role of Faculty in Advocating for, Supporting, or Sustaining OER Adoption and Use.
