|Sept 19||Collaborative Platforms for Open Content Development
As more colleges are promoting the adoption of OER to expand access and improve completion rates, collaborative platforms for publishing open content are becoming more critical. Faculty, librarians, and instructional designers are often working in teams to curate, adapt, and format openly licensed content for entire courses. We will hear from several stakeholders who have adopted collaborative platforms to streamline the process from course outline to delivery of fully OER courses and open textbooks.

|Dec 5||The Impact of OER Adoption on Cost, Outcomes, and Stakeholder Perceptions
Open educational resources (OER) efficacy research shows that the use of OER does not negatively impact student success metrics such as grades, course completion, retention, and persistence rates. In numerous research studies involving more than 46,00 students across different types of institutions, Hilton (2016) found that students performed comparably in courses using OER vs. traditional materials. Hear from 2018-19 Open Ed Group Fellows who will share their research on open textbook adoption at multiple institutions including textbook adoptions in high-enrollment, multi-section introductory courses (psychology and economics) at Lansing Community College.
