Variability of what faculty can do to save students money...widest range of options.
helping faculty navigate the differences between all the supplemental vendors for openStax textbooks,, as well as the new low-cost courseware - like that Cengage option - built around OER.
Library options for literature-based courses
more of at topic for community colleges---resources for CTE (careert tech) programs. lots of time, there are not established materials, but need to compile from industry sources.
I’d love to hear different campuses trategies for engaging faculty beyond the early adopters
heard Jerry's presentation at OER17 and have not had the chance to look at it yet.
scalability -- regarding engagement of new faculty every year
Looking forward to a big discussion with all AL$ Coordinators.
How to more formally operationalize these efforts on campuses beyond the grant-funded support.
echo the scalability topic!
barriers would be great topic too
re: scalability: do you mean how to continue to bring more and more new faculty adopters on board while simultaneously supporting existing adopters? Want to make sure we understand the need here.
Shelli, can you share more?
maybe have a session for CCCs to discuss CCC-specific issues. and probably the same thing for CSUs.
Yes, how to draw in new faculty, but also how to reach faculty who previously didn't find any OER/options in the past, as well as how to reach faculty with non-GE courses in which OER is tougher to find
Yes how to continue/draw in new fauclty
@dan - we will have a CCC breakout session to discuss cCC issues. thx.
Perhaps how OER can be integrated with other campus initiatives (e.g. Guided Pathways)
Great recommendations. Thank you.
Are we using the AB 798 and ALS as interchangeable terms?
yes, re: other initiatives. I am going to apply for funding to research OER and low-cost materials using the CTE "More and Better" funding. Also thinking of Student Equity funding.
@Will - Erin is covering CSU AL$ specific reporting. AB 798 will be next.
Yes, Will. AB 798 is built off AL$ in the CSU. So we have combined these webinars as a result. Theresa will speak to CCCs ab798 next.
can survey highlights included be from a survey in 2016 or does it have to be Fall 2017?
and we have so many groups involved in OER/low-cost at the CCCs---AB798, ZTCD, Academic Senate for CCC Task Force, Council of Chief Librarians. we are trying to get dialogue among the groups.
@Shelli, yes you can include past surveye highlights that you may not have included in past reports.
Final Report: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17cVB3lhIxG0itxeZ582u65uWWrexGqP9tNKG5egVQF8/edit#gid=938987158
So can we just modify the previous report to match the final report sheet rather than copying information from the previous report into the new sheet linked above?
We have a lot of faculty using EIR (articles, faculty-provided materials, etc.) which are not OER. It doesn’t seem realistic to include all of those detailed pieces that others wouldn’t have access to.
how do we submit Cool4ed? I just see links to MERLOT on there. Do we submit into MERLOT?
@Jim - Yes and I plan to do that too!
Theresa, OER does, or does not include library resources? These were included in the list of material types considered OER in the call, but strictly speaking they aren't OER.
@Jim - Yes. As long as we get the necessary/required information, please do what works for you.
Some of the OERs for courses that, by their nature, use multiple texts (e.g., English). For example, literature classes may use various OERs for five texts and purchase texts for three other books. While it’s easy to list texts purchased and texts replaced for courses that use a master textbook (e.g., math or bio), does the template allow for or require that level of detail for courses using multiple texts?
THere was a drumming sound.
Library resources would definitely be AL$ compliant adoptions
Great! I was also thinking from a savings-per-student point of view for state reporting as well as from sharing resources. Thanks.
But library resources don't count for OER which is the AB798 report focus, correct? AB798 is OER only, right?
@Susan - Yes, please include library resources.
Sent out yesterday the instructions for faculty to designate classes as ZTC. Already 68 classes show up in our SIS with the logo!
We have rolled it out and theoretically have it in our Spring 2018 online schedule right now.
SB 1359 FAQ: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HalVK62Id423GOWQiDWTQftvvblIuZHudDYrZgjFAkw/edit#heading=h.5406jrb8hx2g
We will have 72 sections designated, and it's all going well here at Golden West College
SB 1359 Resources: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BwwwGySNSAF_d0ZrUjlBSEk2N1k
1359---what if the class is not as no-cost and then the teacher is changed. is the new teacher required to use the no-cost materials?
I noticed we can pretty much put together a path for a zero degree, too
Interesting questions come up from faculty once the word gets out… Definitely has increased interest in having an LTC designation.
ASCCC passed a resolution this fall encouraging colleges to do LTC designation.
We aren’t yet, but I expect we will next AY depending on how this initial rollout goes
We only have the symbol for the free instructional resources, not low-cost. Its a good idea, though.
@SMC we’re working with MIS to have a filer in the schedule of classes for low to zero cost sections.
low-cost designation---not yet. we are barely able to get the 1359 designation.
We are taking LTC to our senate in December.
@Brian - Yes, please include resources accessible to all
We have discussed it and would like to do low cost (and as much transparency as possible), but logistically (verifying, entering, criteria, etc.) is a nightmare for us it seems
Who defines “low cost” on your campus?
CSUF is only do the no cost symbol/marking; no low-cost designation
I like the threshold idea—courses below a certain amount.
We plan to roll out LCCM at a later time (CSULB)
I've finally been able to get our administrators to call a meeting to discuss SB1359, but so far nothing has happened on our campus. For some reason, admin seemed surprised when I brought it to their attention.
interest at ASCCC plenary session last week. we had a resolution urging a low-cost designation and then faculty got up in opposition to OER in general! Aaaargh.
still need for a lot of education about OER to our classroom faculty colleagues.
@Dan but the resolution did pass, yes?
@Noah - Please include on your Final Report for COOL4Ed inclusion
yes, the resolution passed overwhelmingly.
people at the con mike were complaining that students will choose classes bases on textbook cost. Well, duh....they are doing that already.
@Dan Can you share the resolution with us?
it just went online today. go to asccc.org
Oh, I see, sorry. It was at plenary. Missed that part.
Just sent a link to the ASCCC resolution to our faculty earlier today: https://www.asccc.org/resolutions/recognition-course-sections-low-cost-course-material-options
That's a fantastic number!
@tdykes got it, thanks. I'm also trying to ensure the materials are in MERLOT as well
Thanks everyone, I need to run to a workshop.
thanks for sharing
Thanks so much, everyone! Happy Thanksgiving!
