I currently see OER for Political Science title slide
Still on first slide
Sadly I do not see it
You may have dual monitors?
Woot woot librarians!
I would definitely be interested.
Definitely some good distinctions between ZTC (zero textbook cost) materials and OER (open educational resource--usually published with a creative commons license)
Q: How was your adoption of OER materials? Did you phase in your adoption, where you transitioned over a few semesters/years from non-OER to OER?
Do you get pushback for having a series of links rather than a “textbook”? I’m thinking in terms of Course Outlines of Record particularly.
Thanks Lezlee and Charlotte, this is helpful in thinking about phasing in, since its an investment in time
Thanks. This seems to be the open secret. Listing a traditional textbook on the COR for the sake of articulation, accreditation, etc. when actually using OER/ZTC links. That is where I am with Comparative Politics particularly.
You are welcome and I am excited, too.
I am happy to share my list of links for Comparative Politics.
Good idea to create your own book/material as a compilation of OER/ZTC materials!
The 5-year review summary document for Physics (saying that open source textbook will be included in C-ID descriptors) is available here: https://c-id.net/descriptors
Jessica, you can share in the chat, or we can post them later.
As Heather stated, CSU is in the forefront of alternative textbooks, etc (especially through their campus AL$---affordable learning solutions--prgrams) that it would (dare I say) hypocritically for them to insist that we use commercial textbooks.
It’s a multi-page doc. What’s the better way to share?
The ASCCC OERI has built a Canvas course where we can share these resources & have discussions: https://ccconlineed.instructure.com/courses/3432
That’s awesome - so helpful!
Heather, I think you mentioned Piazza before, which OERI is using, I think.
Thet is why I appreciate these webinars - thank you!
You can e-mail me if you are interested in leading for political science.

We also have a Canvas course to help us organize our conference
Thank you, these resources will be helpful to pass along.
OER people are the best people :)
