The Michigan State University (MSU) Libraries' OER Program is a student success initiative that was launched in the Fall 2019 semester. The OER program goals are affordability, access, agency, innovation, and engagement in innovative pedagogical models that facilitate learning. This presentation will provide an overview of the OER program, including the courses using an OER as course learning materials. It will also present survey results and course success metrics disaggregated by relevant demographic background factors from over 15,000 students enrolled in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 courses that adopted OER learning materials. We will discuss how the cost of textbooks has impacted our students' lives and how OER has provided them the means to address the affordability and accessibility of learning materials, especially during the pandemic. We will also provide evidence through this survey that we are impacting students who are underrepresented, have low socio-economic status, and other metrics that demonstrate that the OER initiative is addressing our goals of access, affordability, inclusion, and equity.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Learn about the results of our student survey
  • Gain insights on student's attitudes towards learning materials and how this has impacted their lives as students
  • Serve as model for others to create their own student survey protocol
