Get an Open Head Start! Introducing the OER Starter Kit for Program Managers

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

The OER Starter Kit for Program Managers is an open peer-reviewed and open copyedited textbook that was published this year to help individuals and groups who want to build and manage an open education program. The text covers learning about open educational practices, soliciting team members, collecting and reporting data on your program's outcomes, and more!
Join the contributing authors to learn about the book's creation process and how you can leverage its content in your own work. This session will start with an overview of our project's design and production, before jumping into an open discussion with the audience about the work involved in managing open education programs.

By attending this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Understand, replicate, and customize our open peer-review and open copyediting process in the publication of their own open textbooks
  • Apply "The OER Starter Kit for Program Managers" in ways that fit their local needs
  • Extrapolate lessons learned from other program managers for use in their own context
