The Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) is a community of practice whose mission is promoting open education to improve student equity and success through sharing professional development, advocacy, and showcase opportunities. Members across North America collaborate on creating and sharing open education policies, practices, and educational resources to grow the open culture at their institution, across their region, and beyond.

Founded in 2007, CCCOER has supported the growth of open education at community and technical colleges through active online and in-person engagement strategies featuring listservs, webinars, workshops, case studies, and student impact stories. Over the years, its mission has remained consistently focused on student equity and success as the OER movement has advanced to include greatly expanded OER availability, improved technology platforms, federal and state policies and funding, and the evolution of “open pedagogy” as a means to make classroom learning equitable, inclusive, and antiracist.

A member-based and driven organization, CCCOER continues to launch new initiatives based on member feedback. Over the last few years, programs have included:

An Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Committee created in 2020 to share resources and plan professional opportunities to explore how open education can support EDI. In addition to conference presentations, the committee launched a virtual EDI book club to facilitate discussions across college and state boundaries on how equity, diversity, and inclusion looks in different contexts.

The Regional Leaders of Open Education (RLOE), launched in 2019 to address the need for regional collaboration and peer support to scale open education policy, professional development, stewardship, and sustainability, is developing into a network program. The network will support participants in the development and implementation of strategic open education plans to increase success for underserved students.

Open Pedagogy remains a key member interest particularly in how it can dismantle racism in the classroom through valuing student voice and co-development of open education resources and practices. A virtual open pedagogy adventure encouraging faculty and staff to be guided by experts as they create equitable learning experiences was launched in summer 2021.

Join our panel of statewide leaders, administrators, faculty, and librarians to engage in conversation about diverse strategies for creating and sustaining cultures of openness and how to adapt for your local context.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Identify best practices for building an open education culture on their campus and within their region
  • Understand the importance of and how to promote student voices in open education advocacy
  • Understand how open pedagogy can be used to make classrooms student-centered and antiracist
  • Articulate the benefits of open education policies, practices, and resources to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion
