The Texas Digital Library (TDL) is a collaborative consortium based in Texas and rooted in higher education. Texas Digital Library builds capacity among its membership for ensuring equitable access to and preservation of digital content of value to research, instruction, cultural heritage, and institutional memory. In 2020, TDL expanded its services to include support for Open Educational Resources (OER). Charged with developing a Community of Practice, TDL’s OER Ambassador program provides a forum for member libraries to discuss and share challenges and achievements around OER initiatives that impact student success, retention, graduation rates, and the cost of higher education for college students in Texas.

In this panel discussion, OER Ambassadors will share their experience developing this Community of Practice and the process of starting an OER initiative from the ground up at their respective Texas institutions. With a focus on the problems and hurdles each faced in building an OER program, the panelists will provide a peek behind the scenes of three OER initiatives, share missteps and issues encountered, and speak to the need for progress, not perfection. Panelists will also engage with attendees in order to crowdsource solutions to challenges. This is a great panel for OER advocates at any stage of implementation: from beginner to advanced.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Identify potential hurdles and challenges in starting a new OER initiative
  • Share solutions in response to OER initiative flops or failures
  • Understand the benefits of sharing with a community of OER colleagues
