Same here. Looking forward to this webinar!
hello all we are recording and will edit before posting
Please mute yourself
Hi everyone - please mute yourself unless you are asking a question.
Equity is giving students what they need to succeed - understanding that this is different for each student
Equity success is defined by outcomes.
Equity is different than equality. It is about fairness.
sustained effort for me is faculty buy-in and chair support as well as institutional financial support.
I'm new to the OER world, but i do know the open education resources encompass affordable and zero-cost textbooks, as well as ancillary course materials
Institutionalization to me means campus support with staffing. Much like we have campus support for online.
Institutionalizing OER is when faculty look for open texts FIRST as a matter of course
Institutionalization means the college builds the program into its budget for ongoing cycles.
equity is more than fairness. it is getting everyone to the same spot.
Having a copy or two of each textbook available on campus at the library for students to check out.
With equity, we are looking for parity in outcomes
I agree with Aloha. It's meeting people'
s differing needs
Its about leveling the playing field but also unique to each student's need which makes OER uniquely suited for it
I'm with Aloha too!
pathways is the logical and clear way to get to a student's goal.
ztc- zero textbook cost-- not necessarily OER, but materials that are free to the students (even if the school is, say, paying for a database subscription)
Institutionalization is when you have buy-in from faculty, admin, everyone in your district
Equity is definitely taking different apporaches towards success
level playing field
Institutionalizing means ensure there is a plan in place to maintain & support the program post-grant via staffing, funding, etc.
pathways is about demystifying college and creating equity
Institutionalization can be good or bad. On one hand it can mean that the institution adopts the paradigm and the cost. On the other hand it can mean that the institution adopts the rhetoric, takes the money and the credit, but ignores what is at the heart of the cause.
OER without digital inclusion undermines the impact of OER.
Who are our students - so important to be REAL about who is in our classrooms!
Can those of us outside the CCC (i'm at UC) use this Canvas course as well?
@Kenneth - yes! The course is openly licensed (OER)! We'd love to know if you do use it. We'd be happy to chat with you about using it as well.
Excellent! I'm in Santa Cruz, and will certainly be connecting with Aloha down the road at Cabrillo :)
The course is a great example of re-mixing OER.
What is the name of the Canvas Module in the Commons so we can find it?
Search for ZTC Equity
I'm actaullly pursuing equity in our dual-enrollment, ALT ED HS located on a CCC campus and would really like to know how I could connect with this resource?
@Isaac - you're free to use the course (it's OER after all!). If you do use it, please let us know. We could also discuss facilitating the course.
There are two versions of the class in Canvas Commons. Which should I use?
One is self-paced. The other is facilitated.
Were faculty offered FLEX and/or reassign time for completing the course?
@James-Awesome, I'm currently gathering ALL my resources/data to present to our staff to really assist with explaining about it as well as providing opportunities to implement throughout the work day.
New to OER all suggestions are appreciated
In other words, I feel like we have many resisters and deniars as if the underpriviledge doesn't exist..
What was the title of the course so I can look it up? Thanks!
The title: Zero Textbook Cost Pathways: OER & Equity
URL is hgher in the chat
You can search ZTC Equity in Canvas Commons!
There are many students who don't have reliable access to broadband or a suitable device for accessing online learning materials.
Great idea to add a module at the end that is campus-specific
Jennifer, are you able to call it a "stipend"? One of the issues we're facing here with our OER plan is how to compensate those that participate. Because of language in the faculty contract, we aren't allowed to call the compensation a "stipend". How were you able to get around that or is that not an issue for your campus?
I feel your lab science woes!
Will you share the course path and related materials?
You can find all the ZTC course materials uploaded to the Vision Resource Center
On our campus, there is some confusion about OER v ZTC that we are working on, including what should be included in the online schedule per SB1359. There seems to be some division on this across the campuses so it would be great to have it more standarized.
Also, to confirm, does ZTC include those general education required courses within each of those degrees?
i believe ZTC is zero TEXTBOOK cost - ancillary costs are not included. yes?
Ancillaries still count as textbook cost.
all course materials must be zero cost, including ancillaries
@Mary - there are indeed various interpretations; me an email email@example.com
if ancillaries are included, there will never be a completely OER science course, unless the college is subsidizing goggles/coats/etc
our college would not do that.
materials that students can keep (goggles, calculators, paints, etc.) don't count
googles, calculators, etc = supplies; books = instructional materials
and things like homework/test banks are put in with books... makes sense. There's been a lot of discussion about ZTC because it's made up of OER courses, but there's still cost because of supplies.
thank you for creating the Canvas course - I'm definitely going to make use of that!
Is that the self-pace course?
I really appreciate the development of this course as well. I had been wanted to develop something of this sort so it is nice to have something already well done that I can use as a starting point.
Is there a way of tracking how many/who takes the self-paced course?
If you use the course or parts of the course, please drop us a line to let us know!
Will you make your slides available? I'd love to show those percentages to my faculty.
@Brenda - shoot me an email James.firstname.lastname@example.org
Cool. Thank you Suzanne!
Thank you all!
Thanks. Very informative!
This is great, please keep it coming!
Thank you all, very much!
WIll do, I looking forward conecting
