Using OER in Concurrent Enrollment courses provides significant benefits to all parties involved: the sponsoring university, the university faculty, the high school, the high school teacher, and most importantly, the high school student. The university LMS is the tool that makes using OER in concurrent enrollment courses practical and more feasible for the concurrent enrollment teachers and students

When the high school Concurrent Enrollment instructors run their course that uses OER in the sponsoring institution’s LMS, the university faculty roles for oversight, collaboration, assessment/accreditation, and long term course building are all made easier. OER allows more opportunities for revising and adapting course content to meet diversity, equity and inclusion goals. Using OER with an LMS enhances necessary student accommodations (e.g., voice-to-text, text-to-voice, translations.) The faculty responsibilities in the Concurrent Enrollment courses using OER are vastly more manageable when CE instructors are using the university LMS.

When students use the university LMS they are able to make better use of the OER, and they gain valuable experience that will pay off later. They create a record of work at the university. Students have easier access to the support services offered on the university campus. Low-income and underrepresented students in higher education experience the biggest positive impacts on their ability to access and complete college by getting a jumpstart on taking college classes in high school, particularly in early college high schools. Finally, learning analytics can help instructors assess their students in courses using OER in ways not available to non-LMS users.

This presentation will describe a partnership between a state university and a nonprofit provider of teacher professional development focused on the use of OER via an LMS. Attendees will discover how to implement incentivized teacher professional development so Concurrent Enrollment students get all of the experience and benefits possible by using OER content via the university LMS.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Understand the advantages and challenges of using OER in concurrent enrollment
  • Understand how to implement incentivized teacher professional development for Concurrent Enrollment courses
