This session will provide a look into Northeastern Technical College's initiative regarding OERs. Since beginning our initiative, NETC has achieved a 90% adoption rate for general education courses. The college library and faculty have partnered to champion OER adoption. The session will illustrate best practices in OER adoption by providing an overview of locating, evaluating, and using OER. Secrets to OER success will also be shared!

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Provide a case study of a successful OER program
  • Encourage collaboration between valued stakeholders to provide an overview of OER location, evaluation, and use
