Are you interested in reducing student textbook costs and increasing student success by using open educational resources (OER)? Check out the ASCCC Open Educational Resources Initiative (OERI)'s newest opportunities.
The OERI is in the midst of identifying faculty to:
BIOLOGY: We are looking for collaborators to expand the LibreTexts Introduction to Botany book to ensure that it is sufficient for a general botany course for biology majors. This may involve incorporating chapters from other open source resources and/or writing new chapters. We also hope to develop ancillaries for the new book (lecture slides, Canvas homework assignments, test banks, etc.). If interested, contact Melissa Ha at email@example.com.
COMPUTER SCIENCE: Faculty collaborators are needed for development of a text-equivalent for an introduction to computer science course that introduces students to fundamental concepts of computer science and programming. This is a course in which applications are not taught but programming is introduced. If interested, please contact Kaleab Gorfu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
POLITICAL SCIENCE: Seeking community college faculty who are familiar with the California government component of the introductory American government class taught at most California community colleges and who is knowledgeable about California politics. Collaborators will read and review for substantive quality and clarity a concise California politics and government textbook. Time commitment will involve up to thirty hours to read and provide suggestions to the text's author. If interested, contact Steven Yeti at email@example.com.
PHILOSOPHY: Collaborators are needed for a number of projects in this discipline. If interested, please indicate your particular areas of interest and your qualifications to OERI@asccc.org.
PHYSICS: Collaborators are needed for a number of projects in this discipline. If interested, please indicate your particular areas of interest and your qualifications to OERI@asccc.org.
SPANISH: Seeking collaborators to develop an OER textbook-equivalent with online self-graded activities for a 1st semester Spanish course. If interested, contact Karla Gutierrez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The OERI is currently seeking faculty to serve in a variety of roles. This application process will create a pool of faculty from which we will select reviewers for newly developed resources, so we have a true need for a faculty from a broad array of disciplines - including those who may or may not have experience with OER.
Research finds 93% of students who use Open Education Resources do as well or better than those using traditional materials.
This CampusGuide is a work-in-progress.
If you have resources to add, suggestions, or help locating material, please contact Adina Lerner x3379 or email: alerner @ glendale.edu
