Open educational resources (OER) are openly licensed teaching and learning resources that allows everyone to retain, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute these materials to better serve students. Community colleges are leading the way in OER adoptions and creation resulting in massive cost savings for millions of students whom high textbook cost is a major barrier.

This presentation will talk about the experience of Lansing Community College (LCC) and how it has successfully implemented an OER initiative that resulted in almost $2M textbook savings for their students in just three years. We will talk about our plans for scaling OER adoptions across more courses with our partnership with Lumen Learning, a leader in providing OER-enhanced courseware. Attendees will learn effective strategies for starting an OER initiative including practical strategies for scaling and sustainability.
