Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
As colleges seek to reduce prohibitive textbook costs for students and improve access and equity, open educational resources (OER) degrees can help them achieve a large-scale impact. However, building a viable and sustainable OER degree can seem daunting because it involves 1) many faculty 2) many disciplines, 3) every area of the college, 4) often different campuses, and 5) maybe even different colleges. San Jacinto College is building an OER degree that does all five. We will discuss how we have created a rapid-response OER team and developed a ready-to-teach OER degree in less than six months.

Outcomes: Identify a degree at your institution that is suitable for a rapid response OER program *Be able to design a strategic plan for creating a rapid response OER degree *Define a feasible timeline for completing an OER degree
