In an effort to scale the use of OER, the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) has created a strategic initiative, called the Maricopa Millions, with a goal of saving students $5 million in 5 years. A component of this project is an internal grant process, targeting high enrollment courses. Faculty applicants of the grant process are encouraged to submit grant proposals with representatives from multiple MCCCD colleges in the hope that the materials can be used and scaled to multiple colleges. Phase I of the grant process funded the move to OER for English Composition I, English Composition II, and College Preparatory Reading. Support for these faculty was provided through the Maricopa Millions project as well as by campus-based and District-based instructional designers and librarians. In this session, faculty and instructional designers will share the support strategies, pedagogical considerations and the processes used for transforming their courses to open.
