WOOHOO Sally <3
Jim Julius (he/him)
24:53
Would love to see the OERI providing some consistent ways to gather data and conduct research to illustrate OER/ZTC impacts
Suzanne Wakim
24:53
And Rachel - super team <3
Jim Julius (he/him)
25:14
So that we can do it locally but also aggregate meaningfully across the state
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
25:14
@Jim - Agreed, good idea.
Dave Dillon
26:11
Thanks Jim. Noted and in progress. Not as easy as we would like it to be.
Joanna Sobala
26:13
Libre text is overwhelming
Katie Carbary
26:20
One big issue currently is a lack of support for bringing OER into full compliance with our district accessibility policies. I hope additional support for that can be made available!
Jim Julius (he/him)
26:36
Cool, great to hear!
Jim Julius (he/him)
27:03
But we shouldn’t apply higher accessibility standards to OER than we are to publisher materials ….
Dave Dillon
27:47
@Joanna: We’re continuing to work on supporting LibreTexts and making it less overwhelming / easier for folks new to OER and new to the platform to be able to jump in and use. Another work in progress.
Joanna Sobala
28:29
Thank you Dave!
Katie Carbary
29:12
I agree Jim. Our district policy applies to all course materials - OER or textbook publisher. But we can insist that publishers provide accessible versions, and we can’t really do that with OER.
Dave Dillon
29:42
@Joanna: We have Jennifer Rodgers on board as someone who can support bridge some of the OERI / LibreTexts projects and orienting CCC faculty. Happy to put your or others in touch if you aren’t already.
Joanna Sobala
30:03
Is there a text on Social Justice in general? SJS1? I thought thate was one being developed.
Joanna Sobala
31:20
I made a note of Jennifer's name. Thanks Dave!

* Contributed by Erika Gutierrez, Janét Hund, Shaheen Johnson, Carlos Ramos, Lisette Rodriguez, & Joy Tsuhako* Published by ASCCC Open Educational Resources Initiative (OERI)This open text was compiled by six diverse, community college sociology faculty from Long Beach City College, Cerritos College, and Rancho Santiago College. With an eye on social justice and intersectionality, the text provides a sociological analysis of the history, demographics, and contemporary experiences of the following race-ethnic groups: African Americans, Asian American Pacific Islanders, Euro Americans, Latinx, Native Americans, Middle Eastern Americans, and immigrants. This text is suitable for a sociology course on race and ethnic relations or a social justice studies introductory course.

Do we have access to this power point ?
Dave Dillon
32:51
C-ID SOCI 150 & C-ID SJS 110
Suzanne Wakim
33:09
I'll find the link
Jim Julius (he/him)
33:59
@Katie unfortunately I think at this point there is a gulf in most districts between policies and practices. I just think it’s unfortunate if, as OER come in, we end up in practice holding them to a higher standard than the many publisher resources that faculty may have been using for a long time even though they are not in compliance with accessibility regs

Joanna Sobala
35:14
Thanks Suzanne for the link. Is that the SJS 110 text that just got developed or yet another resource?
Suzanne Wakim
35:57
@Joanna - I have that listed as for SJS 110.
Joanna Sobala
36:32
Ok. Thank you!! I will check it out. Just started teaching a social justice class so this may be a useful resource. :)
Dave Dillon
37:07
@Joanna: Jennifer Rogers = jrogers@libretexts.org
Joanna Sobala
38:27
Thanks Dave and Suzanne!
Dave Dillon
38:43
@Talwinder: Re: PPT, we will make available with the recording on the OERI website.
Talwinder Chetra
39:20
Thanks @Dave!!
Ame Maloney
39:45
@Dave, is there a PDF download raceavailable for the Race & Ethnic Relations resource?
Jim Julius (he/him)
40:11
Can that URL go into chat?
Jim Julius (he/him)
40:17
(Discipline collections)?
Sheila Lynch
40:20
Are these discipline leads named on the OERI website, yet?
Ame Maloney
40:52
I just found it in the Humanities downloads (ctr+F)
Deborah Gustlin
40:59
What are the collaboration requirements so we can get a team together?
Sheila Lynch
41:12
Will you accept Part-Time faculty discipline leads?
Scott Hubbard
41:52
https://ccconlineed.instructure.com/courses/4543/pages/discipline-page
Sheila Lynch
41:53
Part time discipline leads?
Jim Julius (he/him)
42:30
@Scott thanks!
Larry Green
42:35
If we know an OER leader in a discipline you are looking for a discipline leader, is there a link or person we should send them to?
Dave Dillon
42:57
Thanks Scott!
Dave Dillon
43:40
Larry: Please send recommendations to Michelle = mpilati@asccc.org
Jim Julius (he/him)
44:38
Do discipline leads receive a stipend of some sort?
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
44:54
Are all of these new resources going to be added to Cool4Ed?
Jane Ishibashi
45:24
I couldn't hear Michelle either
Sheila Lynch
45:30
No, not your computer. Michelle’s feed is freezing up
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
46:53
Good news, thanks.
Jim Julius (he/him)
47:10
Having OERI support faculty to review materials in Cool4Ed would be great too
Talwinder Chetra
47:23
Can we keep the resources on one site or one place ? it is so confusing to find the resources from different places.
Scott Hubbard
47:30
The audio is consistently choppy, unfortunately.
Jim Julius (he/him)
47:54
Michelle’s network connection not great
Talwinder Chetra
48:04
Audio issue again
Landi Ehnle
48:18
the thesis of each paragraph is cutting out in the audio
Michelle Pilati
48:33
I can hear - and I can see the chat.
Scott Hubbard
50:10
@Talwinder: Great point! It'd be nice to have a site for California community colleges like OpenOregon does for their community college use of OER by course.https://openoregon.org/resources/
Talwinder Chetra
50:11
I did not hear about summer plan because of audio issue
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
50:59
Should we mark even if there is no text required?
Sheila Lynch
51:23
But do local senates define the No Text issue
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
51:32
ok, site decision at this point then, got it
Talwinder Chetra
51:39
@ Scott: True. I always goes to Open Oregon for finding materials
Jim Julius (he/him)
52:32
@Scott and @Talwinder do you find that more useful than the C-ID search in Cool4Ed ? https://www.cool4ed.org/courseshowcase
Ame Maloney
52:33
Why the difference from State Chancellor’s office on digital/non-digital interpretation of SB1359?
Ame Maloney
53:32
SB1359 “(1) (A) Clearly highlight, by means that may include a symbol or logo in a conspicuous place on the online campus course schedule, the courses that exclusively use digital course materials that are free of charge to students and may have a low-cost option for print versions.”
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
53:53
For now does Cool4Ed only list titles that have been adopted at a campus? or will they list options of titles that are created to be aligned regardless of adoption
Dave Dillon
54:40
SB 1359 OERI Webinar Thurs 3/18 1:20-2:30. :)
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
54:40
ok, cool.
Ame Maloney
55:51
Thanks Dave!
Sheila Lynch
55:52
Indeed, SB 1359 language is a quandary, Dave.
Jim Julius (he/him)
55:57
I think many colleges interpret SB 1359 as a starting point, not a restrictive definition for use of a ZTC symbol
Jim Julius (he/him)
56:10
At MiraCosta our senate does allow for a more expansive use of the ZTC symbol
Sheila Lynch
01:00:42
Whatever it takes to raise awareness of the need to clarify the application of the ZTC symbol.
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:00:51
Nope, not rare at all..
Ame Maloney
01:01:09
Tagging in online schedules is a challenge (many hands in manual entry pots)
Ryan Erickson-Kulas
01:01:49
Are there other higher ed systems in the country that have that type of database?
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:01:54
and linking to accurate textbook info on bookstore websites is also key, which is often linked to miscommunication along the line of faculty to bookstore to schedule
Scott Hubbard
01:02:44
In our MIS, we have a ZTC flag, but I don't think that gets sent to the state chancellor's office at all.
Scott Hubbard
01:03:36
Good to know!
Jim Julius (he/him)
01:03:51
That would definitely up the ante on getting our local processes around ZTC designation in order!
Ame Maloney
01:03:59
Thanks Michelle & Dave! This has been super informative
Lisa Soccio
01:04:03
Thank you!
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:04:07
thanks!
Laurie Buchholz
01:04:09
We are working on defining "low cost" courses to mark them in the schedule. (In addition to our ZTC designation.) Any guidance on how to define that>
Talwinder Chetra
01:04:12
Thanks!!
Larry Green
01:04:22
Thanks!
Joanna Sobala
01:04:24
thank you! :)
