Conducting an Environmental Scan to Identify OER Needs at an Institution of Higher Learning

Feedback form is now closed.

The presentation proposal is aimed at sharing my experience conducting an Open Educational Resources (OER) environmental scan at the University of California, Santa Barbara (USCB). The OER environmental scan was conducted in the form of two surveys, one for faculty and another for students. The surveys were designed to get an understanding of the prevalence or usage patterns, and familiarity of Open Educational Resources (OER) by faculty at the UCSB. I also assessed the challenges students encounter in acquiring textbooks. The other goal of the student survey was to determine if students are aware of alternative learning resources like OER, if they would consider advocating for OER, and in what ways. I will also share the survey findings and the recommendations I made for my library.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Describe one example of how to conduct and OER environmental scan through surveys
  • Apply tips for how to design a survey
  • Communicate strategically about OER with stakeholders
