Few community colleges are pushing the envelope to expose the full impact of OER on teaching and learning. While there are numerous OER efforts underway, this session will provide a synopsis of key components in scaling an OER effort from a single course to an entire degree.

This session will share how the Z-Degree model can be replicated in a way that is scalable, encompassing a single course or an entire degree, while remaining flexible enough to engage both full-time and adjunct Faculty in online, hybrid, or traditional courses.
