Open Access Librarian
Iowa State University
Author, The OER Starter Kit
In this presentation, Abbey Elder (Iowa State University) will share best practices for institutions developing an OER initiative for the first time. In addition to discussing how her team created Iowa State University's OER initiative, Abbey will also explore how you can apply the lessons she learned to your own work. Participants will leave this presentation with:
tips for starting a new OER initiative with little to no financial support,
best practices for scoping and planning an OER initiative,
common project types you can implement on campus, and
additional resources for getting started.
This presentation will be particularly useful to those who are just starting their OER initiative, but there will be resources of interest to established OER practitioners as well.
