Collaborations in Support of Open Education [clear filter]
Thursday, October 12
 

9:45am

Table 1 - Collaborating with Your Campus Bookstore
At the University of Arizona, we're frequently asked how the Libraries and campus-owned BookStores collaborate effectively on OER initiatives and other textbook cost-reduction projects. Cheryl Cuillier, the UA Libraries' OER Coordinator, and Cindy Hawk, Assistant Director of the UA BookStores, will share the secrets of our success, which can be replicated at other institutions. In this session, we'll cover data sharing, joint presentations to campus, our campus-wide OER Action Committee, how we've leveraged the Faculty Senate and Provost's involvement, how we notify students of free textbooks on the BookStores' website, and other strategies.

Table 2 - Stop, Collaborate, and Listen
This session will allow discussion and collaboration between the different, but necessary individuals needed to develop OER courses. Join us to identify tasks, set goals for a current or yet-to-be-defined project, and get contact information for fellow collaborators. The presenters will model how to work together to develop effective learning opportunities around open education resources. Participants will take advantage of the collective knowledge in the room, work together, find common goals, and share our resources and ideas with each other.



At the end of this session you will receive:

1. Contact information of at least one person (bring your business cards)

2. Project that you can begin to develop or continue

3. Clearly defined short-term tasks for that project

4. Clearly defined long-term goals for that project

5. A cookie



Agenda:

1. Presenters will briefly share their networking and collaboration story (2-3 min).

2. Break into groups based on subject types to find development projects in common (5 min)

3. Each team will make a minimum of two specific tasks and a maximum of two goals for the project. (5-10 min)

4. Take-away message(s) and follow-up activities. (2-3 min)

Table 4 - Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration between Fashion & World Language Programs in Support of Open Education
Building on research showing cross-disciplinary pedagogy can increase creativity and success rates, the Fashion and World Language programs decided to create a dynamic learning environment to improve student success and bolster their programs' institutional profiles. Both programs received funding to create program OERs, but they also developed cross-disciplinary materials. The session presenters will share the results of this collaboration, how it came together, and what they learned that could be applied elsewhere. There will also be time for questions during this interactive session. Participants in this session will learn about the challenges and rewards of cross-disciplinary programs and how these types of interactions can improve student engagement. They will also gain a better understanding of the benefits of cross-disciplinary relationships and how these are tools to develop a comprehensive learning environment. Finally, participants will become familiar with the process of creating cross-disciplinary programs with OER materials that support specific learning objectives. The session leaders will share how they successfully created OERs that provided students with a real-world application of the communication skills and cultural understanding needed to navigate an industry with supply chains that stretch around the world. These concrete examples helped students more deeply relate to and engage with the material. In addition to student engagement, crafting these cross-disciplinary materials also fostered a more collaborative faculty environment. The presenters will share this story, the challenges they encountered in developing these materials in a program with high numbers of adjunct faculty, and some of the things they learned along the way that can be used to customize OER materials to suit participants' program needs. The final point of discussion will be the impact of OERs on student retention and success rates, and lessons participants can draw upon.

Table 5 - Achieving ADA Compliance in OER Math Content
In developing open source textbooks and resources for college algebra and trigonometry courses, the greatest challenge has been making these materials available to students with disabilities. Salt Lake Community College has solved this problem through frequent ongoing meetings of a Math Accessibility Working Group, comprised of math faculty and disability resource experts. The presenters will share the plan developed through this group, along with its implementation. Several features, such as text reading and alt-tagging, will be demonstrated. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions. All textbooks and resources developed through this collaboration are available and will be shared with interested attendees.
