Student and Faculty Impacts from the Equity and Open Education Faculty Cohort Model

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

This statewide professional development course was created by library faculty member Jen Klaudinyi at Portland Community College. The course explores how open educational practices and equity-informed teaching approaches can improve curricular materials and remove barriers to student success. The core of the course is a four-week exploration in small groups to build learning communities that can dive into innovative ideas together. Optionally, participants may continue the course for another four weeks to implement their learning by revising or creating a professional development resource, OER and equity plan, or other relevant materials related to next-steps.

Open Oregon Educational Resources contracted with RMC Research in summer 2020 to conduct research on the impact of the Equity and Open Education Faculty Cohort Model. This presentation will share the results of that research, including analysis of faculty and student surveys, faculty interviews, and a faculty case study. RMC's findings show that this professional development model is effective and can be adopted/adapted by other states and systems with confidence.

By attending this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Access an openly licensed course that explores how open ed practices and equity-informed teaching improve curricular materials and remove barriers to student success
  • Access faculty- and student-facing instruments to assess PD in equity and open ed
  • Consider challenges faculty face when incorporating open ed practices and equity-informed teaching into their courses
  • Understand which elements of PD contribute to success in incorporating open ed practices and equity-informed teaching
