One Step at a Time: Reflecting on the Path Towards an OER Creation Program

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In 2022, the University of Houston (UH) Libraries launched a new OER Creation Program, which provides funding, professional development, and library services to support the creation of open educational resources (OER) for UH courses or programs. The OER Creation Program was developed following several years of interest from faculty in creating new OER, and continual exploration of the resources needed to offer institutional support in this area.

This presentation will share the background and milestones that led to providing more robust support for OER creation, as well as themes and lessons learned from the development of the OER Creation Program. It was integral throughout the process to re-evaluate OER program goals and consider how to meet campus needs without overstretching our capacity. In sharing the experience of the University of Houston, this presentation will provide an example of how an institution supports OER creation without having a full library publishing program, as well as one of iterative growth, encouraging attendees to reflect on their own program goals and opportunities for growth over time.

By attending this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Consider resources and capacity needed when developing services to support OER creation
  • Reflect on OER program goals and opportunities for growth
