Organizing an OER Boot Camp for Faculty

Feedback form is now closed.

For the past 3 years, Fort Hays State University (FHSU) has offered a two-day boot camp for faculty who are working on an open textbook project or otherwise considering transitioning to zero-cost course materials. The boot camp, which has been offered once in person and twice online, is a collaboration between the library, Teaching Innovation and Learning Technologies, and the FHSU OER Committee. Each boot camp has been revised based on feedback from faculty who attended the previous one. The most recent boot camp covered Pressbooks, accessibility, project management, copyright and licensing, and curating zero-cost resources and images. It began with attendee introductions and ended with reflection time for faculty to ask any remaining questions and provide feedback on the event. Unlike other boot camps, this one was not designed to introduce faculty to OER but rather to kick-start z-course projects. Attendees at this session will learn about the process of organizing and revising the boot camp.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Choose critical topics for getting faculty started on z-course projects
  • Implement interactive activities for faculty getting started on z-course projects
  • Avoid issues/challenges faced by the FHSU OER Committee in implementing a boot camp
