Bucks County Community College (PA) is engaged in the final year of a two-year, funded initiative to transition sections of eleven high-enrollment courses to the use of open educational resources and library resources that are free to students. Recognizing a need to shape the whole course and not simply substitute OER for commercial textbooks, the initiative brings together faculty course developers, faculty librarians, an instructional designer and a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) consultant who work together to transform the entire course, resulting in new course templates in the learning management system that are effective, engaging and accessible and that can be retained, reused and revised by other course instructors. A coordinator of the project will guide attendees through the process and the results so far.
