Open Education Champion Toolkit

NEBHE is committed to helping stakeholders understand the value of Open Education as a means to provide students with equitable access to high-quality, low-cost postsecondary education instructional materials options. We’ve curated a collection of basic but timely resources to help practitioners new to OER and those in leadership positions get started. If you’re looking for something specific, please reach out to Lindsey Gumb, Fellow, Open Education at lgumb@nebhe.org.

Open education frameworks address high-cost course materials, but with an increase in the adoption of open educational materials, conversations about inclusive teaching, social justice, and anti-racism pedagogical practices need to be at the center of open practices. Ohio State Professor Jasmine Roberts’ talk will address the urgency of adopting social justice practices in open education and strategies on how to do this.

OER Policy Development Tool

The OER Policy Development Tool can help you quickly get started developing OER-friendly policy for your institution. This freely available, interactive policy-builder tool was developed by Amanda Coolidge (Senior Manager Open Education, BCcampus and Institute for Open Leadership Fellow) and Daniel DeMarte (Chief Academic Officer, Tidewater Community College and Institute for Open Leadership Fellow). Designed for college and university governance officials and those with responsibility for leading OER initiatives, it walks through various dimensions of OER-related policy and provides sample language institutions can use to define and implement these policies.
