This toolkit is intended to assist OER coordinators and other stakeholders with implementing course marking solutions at institutions impacted by Texas Senate Bill 810. The content should be helpful for colleagues in other states considering similar legislation or at institutions implementing OER programs. The toolkit will be released here in April 2018 as a living document. Publication of toolkit contents with Mavs Open Press will follow in Fall 2018.
Sign up for the mailing list to receive an email when the resource is available.
This toolkit will showcase case studies of OER course marking projects that have been implemented at colleges and universities across the globe. Stakeholders at institutions that have implemented OER course markings are invited to submit project briefs for publication in this resource. Selected submissions will be shared as case studies in The Texas Toolkit, an open access resource to be published by Mavs Open Press in Fall 2018. Project briefs should provide an overview of the course marking process, describe the roles of partners involved in implementation, summarize feedback from students, faculty, and other stakeholders, and note challenges, lessons learned, or recommendations. Briefs may not exceed four pages. Contributors agree to license their work with an open license.
Submit briefs to Michelle Reed at firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, April 1, 2018.
In addition to case studies, the toolkit will feature a series of commentaries. Individuals involved with or impacted by OER course markings are encouraged to submit brief statements describing their experiences and perspectives. Commentaries will be published in this resource, and selected submissions will be shared in The Texas Toolkit, an open access resource to be published by Mavs Open Press in Fall 2018. Commentaries may not exceed one page and should include the submitter's name, title and explanation of role, institution, and location (city/state/country). Submissions are encouraged from stakeholders in campus stores, records or registration offices, libraries, and university administration, as well as from faculty, students, advisors, and others. Contributors agree to license their work with an open license.
Submit stakeholder stories to Michelle Reed at email@example.com by Sunday, April 1, 2018.
Common Course Project
The Common Course Project Team leads efforts to match OER with Texas Common Course Numbers. UTA Libraries seeks partners from institutions across Texas to identify OER that have been adopted in freshman and sophomore level general academic courses or that would be suitable for such courses. Work on the project is expected to begin in May 2018 and continue through the next academic year.
Volunteer for the project team or report a relevant adoption here.
