Is there no sound?
i was thinking the same thing?
Hi Ruth! I don't think there is any sound yet
I can hear you now
yes, there is sound
Hi! I can only stay until 10a but I'm here! :)
Yes, the first time I saw DFW was Dallas Fort Worth Airport!
Shout out to Cynthia Orozco who is on the ASCCC Guided Pathways Task Force!
Cynthia is amazing!
But I would welcome dialogue for a discussion on whether we should be considered to be the experts on copyright. Yes, we know about it (especially because of all the copying done in libraries by students), but I question whether we are the experts.
@Dan - I wish my campus had a copyright expert that I could point faculty to!
Re: BOG Vision for Success. There are those stats out there like that 50% of students have dropped a class because of textbook costs. Hopefully, OER should (dare I say?) eliminate that statistic!
And we have the stories (just recently in Sac Bee) that students have to choose between food for their kids and textbooks.
I just want to slap those UCLA professors' faces! (and not just because I am an USC grad)
I'm a UCLA grad and I want to slap their faces too (as someone who is still paying off those textbooks)
Online CTE programs with OER. Is that with the CA Online Comm College (college 115)?
It's a CVC-OEI grant
Aloha, thanks so much.
Access Codes operate under the assumption that ALL students have reliable computer and internet access on & off campus
Project management is a big one
@Dan&Aloha-thank you and likewise! (Apologies for late reply, was driving!) Have to run off to the next thing, but thank you so much, Ron!
The MLIS at UW has a new social justice core component which covers OER in depth
Good for UW, Elle!

Kudo to Kelsey Smith, OER librarian at WHCL!
Sometimes the frustrating thing is that classroom faculty think OER means that I am asking them to write their own textbook!
Does anyone offer stipends to faculty for training and/or OER adoption? If so, how much?
We do! $3500, but they have to do quite a bit of deliverables to get the money. Including OEI rubric review and all that jazz
No stipends for just adopting though
Thanks, Kelsey! I'm trying to come up with a SEA funding request...
We do, too. $1000 to revise/remix + ancillary materials; $3000 to author. Also deliverables similar to the ZTC grant deliverables
Thanks, Ame! I'd like to do something similar with different levels of funding
I think those are better amounts, to be honest. 3500 is a bit much. I prefer a sort of sliding scale depending on how much work they put into it.
Yes! A sliding scale
I guess our BO couldn't do a sliding scale. So we just have that one amount
Oooooh, love this Ame.
Very nice, Ame! Getting ideas...
Of note, we offer a textbook conversion level ($500) - but have had 0 applicants
Interesting! I was wondering about $500 for maybe, doing some kind of OER training
We’ve been migrating OER training into Flex Day Workshops which do provide $ for those training hours
I've been asked to be the college admin for the OER Commons. Anyone in that role and can tell me what it involves?
Sacramento City College (for Los Rios District) and Los Medanos (for the Contra Costa District) are sub-awardees for the federal grant that UC Davis (Delmar Larsen and Libre Text) received.
@Micaela: I think all OER Liaisons and DE coordinators were added as OER Commons admins. As far as I know, we don't have to do anything....
I think it just gives us access?
Coordination---that is so much what we need!
@Aloha. Thanks! I was wondering where that request came from - I am the OER Liaison so that answers it!
There will be more materials in here after June when the final ZTC grantees finish up their degrees
It’s amazing :) So well done!
mantion about SEA program---I am going to do that right away and that sounds like something that I will also mention on the CCL listserv!
Thanks! Yes, it will go into Canvas Commons
Is the ASCCC looking at putting together a communication program?
Does anyone have any language to share about what they are requesting to have added to SEA plan?
You may have already mentioned this, as I joined a little late. But did you mention Lumen Learning? Wondering if anyone has knowledge or perspective on that. Just curious. Thanks!
It's a great way to share
Example---I would like to find out from CCCs on what they consider the dollar amount for low-cost materials (I usually hear $40). But the most comprehensive thing I can think of right now is go on the CCCOER listserv and state that it is a question just for CA Community Colleges at this time. Might ask the ZTC listserv or the ASCCC OERI Liaison listserv.
just one more thing on the list of friday things-to-do!
would love to have a group specifically for CCC librarians who are working on OER. A place for us to share and discuss
Really valuable. Thanks to all!
Ron, thank you for all the work you have done on all of this!!!!
Yes, that would be helpful -- at least 2 of us here are working and interested in this. thanks, Ginny
Thank you, Ron!
Thank you Ron!
Happy Friday, everyone!
