Interactive OER for Dual Enrollment is a U.S. Department of Education Open Textbooks Pilot grant-funded project. Led by LOUIS: The Louisiana Library Network, a program of the Louisiana Board of Regents, this project supports the extension of access to high-quality post-secondary opportunities to high school students across Louisiana and beyond by leveraging a collaboration between educational systems in Louisiana, the library community, Pressbooks as a technology partner, and workforce representatives. The project will result in 25 redeployable OER courses for priority dual enrollment courses in Louisiana, with the potential for a nationwide impact.

This panel discussion brings together the grant principal investigator, project manager, system representatives, instructors, and librarian participants. It will begin with a review of the grant’s scope, highlighting the needs assessment planning that resulted in a focus on dual enrollment and the prioritization of the selected 25 courses. Panelist will share the multi-phased approach underway to engage 25 cohorts, one for each course. Strategies to underscore diversity and equity throughout process will be shared. This includes in terms of recruitment, as cohorts reflect a range of institution types and sizes and draw from librarians and instructors at the state’s public and private systems, including 7 HBCU institutions and 12 community and technical colleges, and in terms of content creation, with an emphasis on materials that are inclusive, culturally relevant, and accessible. Panelists will then share design and experiences with a summer training program focused on building capacity in open education before beginning a structured workflow to collaborative curate existing open materials and create new open materials and H5P interactive elements in Pressbooks.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Understand the phased approach being used by the grant to engage the 25 geographically and institutionally dispersed cohorts
  • Analyze how the grant-writing and project planning strategies used in Interactive OER for Dual Enrollment could be applied to other OER projects

Panelists include: 
  • Dr. James H. Ammons, Jr. Executive Vice President-Chancellor of Southern University at New Orleans
  • Amelia Brister, Director of Library and Learning Resources, Louisiana Delta Community College
  • Dr. Christy Garrison Harrison, Assistant Professor of History Southern University and A&M College
  • Dr. Dawn Kight, Dean of Libraries at Southern University and A&M College; Secretary, LOUIS Executive Board 
  • Sarah Simms, Undergraduate & Student Success Librarian, Louisiana State University
