It's easy to fall in love with the promise of open education. However, it's difficult to put the promise into an effective and scalable practice on a college or university campus. This session will discuss one model for facilitating OER course development on a college campus.

Motivated by a challenge to make higher education more affordable, Chadron State College (CSC) has remixed recipes drawn from others in the OER community, tossed additional ingredients into the mix, and developed approaches to curriculum and course design that encourage, as well as endorse, the use of open-education resources (OER). A librarian, an instructional designer, a faculty member, and a technical specialist will discuss CSC's history with OER and the evolution of a design process that reduces (and works toward eliminating) course textbook costs. Expect a convivial yet candid mix of remixers who will share with attendees some of their successes tempered by a few of their concerns.

The group invites spontaneity and may include attendee participation throughout much of the session. Potential topics of discussion may include faculty incentives, copyright issues, academic rigor, backward design, authorship and attribution, interoperability, undergraduate research, sustainable practice, ADA compliance, costs savings, permissions and licensing, course evaluation and revision.
