Description

The OERI is pleased to support an offering of this open source online course to the first thirty-five OER Liaisons that register. As the course is readily available via Canvas Commons in both a facilitated and self-paced version, this offering is intended to be a train-the-trained experience, preparing Liaisons to offer the course locally. Join Aloha, James, and your fellow Liaisons in this unique experience.

This 4-module course explores the fundamental connections between Equity, Open Educational Resources (OER), Guided Pathways, and Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC) programs. You will employ an equity cognitive frame to examine the impact of textbook costs on student success, and the disproportionate impact on historically underserved students. You will also dig into the growing research on OER efficacy, consider the "what" and "why" of Guided Pathways, and review case studies on successful ZTC pathways, across the state and beyond. You will leave this course understanding how OER and ZTC pathways promote student success and reduce equity gaps, supporting the Vision for Success of the California Community Colleges. This course was created by Aloha Sargent, under the California Community Colleges’ Zero Textbook Cost Degree program, and conceived by the Technical Assistance Provider James Glapa-Grossklag.


Registration/Cancellation Deadline: October 14, 2019

**Please note: OER Liaisons should register with the same email address that they use for the OER Canvas course**
