Scaling Regional OER and Equity: National Consortium of Open Educational Resources (NCOER)

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

Join the Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC), New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE), Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) in a conversation to learn more about each compact's regional priorities to promote educational equity-through the use of OER and open pedagogy-in multi-state regions. Also learn how the regional compacts are working together as NCOER to encourage national scaling of OER and Open Practices in higher education and K-12.

The four regional compacts, which represent a diverse range of state universities and systems, community colleges, minority serving institutions, and independent institutions have joined together to form the National Consortium for OER (NCOER) to scale equitable OER policy, research, and practice. Compacts are known for and have success implementing large-scale educational change that improves education for all students. The success of NCOER hinges on regional expertise, trusting relationships, care, empowerment, and the diversity of voices as we research, learn, and share best practices together. Everyone is invited to participate, contribute, and learn!

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Understand what a regional compact is and how the regional compacts work together as NCOER
  • Learn how regional compacts may help reduce the obstacles and challenges OER advocates face as they persuade instructional faculty, administrators, and politicians to support their OER efforts
  • Learn how to get involved and participate in NCOER
  • Have a deep understanding of the individual compact priorities and newest strategies and research for OER policy, cost savings, teaching and learning, equity, etc
