How can we provide instructors with the resources and tools they need to easily create OER in Higher Education that will actually be adopted? What barriers exist for faculty and how can we remove them so open education is easy and enticing? In the North Carolina State University Libraries, we are leading an IMLS-supported investigation into the need for and ideal components of a subject-specific, simple, flexible, and scalable toolkit for coursework adoption for a specific discipline - psychology. This research will lead to a partnership with the UNC Press to develop an Open Textbook Toolkit that leverages library and press expertise that provides a one stop shop for those interested in creating OER. Join us to learn more about the initial planning and implementation, as well as a sneak peak at early results from research supporting the Open Textbook Toolkit!
