Abstract

As affordability continues to be a growing concern in higher education, more institutions are building programs to not only bring down course materials costs for undergraduate students, but to align affordability with student success and retention. In this presentation, two institutions will share their program development around open and affordable course materials. One institution is just at the beginning of developing their program and has created a robust program for gathering data on student and course instructor needs and desires on their campus. The other institution has a much more well-established initiative with a focus on both OER and open educational practices, leveraging the impact of the program to advance the goals of access, equity, and student success. In both cases, campus partnerships ranging from undergraduate students to high-level administrators are a critical component to success. We will reflect on lessons learned for beginning and expanding programs, and the variety of pathways that can be pursued in expanding the reach of OER.
