Public policy is an important component of the environment around OER. Policy can be leveraged to help advance the use and creation of OER by providing resources, creating programs, or giving direction to institutions and schools. It can also be used to remove barriers, such as older systems or practices that favor traditional publishing models.

Public policy can also present challenges, especially at times of political tension and change. The good news is that OER has proven to have appeal across the political spectrum, so there are avenues for positive OER policy no matter who is in office.

This session will provide a up-to-the minute briefing on the current policy environment around OER in the United States: what is happening in Congress, where there may be avenues with the new administration, and which states are most active. It will also include behind-the-scenes analysis of policy opportunities coming up in the next year, and how members of the audience can become involved.
