Follow-up discussion on “OER & Affordability” with AMICAL leaders of libraries and OER initiatives
In place of the March iteration of our Library Directors Forum, we’re organizing this online discussion aimed especially at library directors, to follow up on the recent webinar series from ACRL, Open Educational Resources and Affordability. We’ll be discussing material from those webinars, and ideas for follow-up actions as a consortium or at our individual institutions. Topics we may address include ideas for supporting OER use or creation – at the institutional or consortial level – through advocacy, promotion, discovery, funding, campus partnerships, building community around OER, or other areas of action.
Who should attend?
- Library directors interested in discussing their libraries’ role related to OER (participation in the ACRL OER webinar series, or viewing the recordings, is encouraged but not required)
- Other AMICAL colleagues who are leading or planning OER initiatives at their institution and are interested in discussing libraries’ roles related to OER
Intended as an informal discussion, this event will not be recorded.
This event is proposed by the Leadership & Assessment Committee and will be facilitated by Committee Chair Asma Al Kanan.
