OER Mainstreaming in an Academic Institution: The Horizontal Framework and Mainstreaming Checklist

Authors:

Abstract

There is immense potential in open educational resources (OER) for encouraging systemic change within academic institutions toward increasing access and equity in education. The perceived benefits of accessing and using OER include gaining access to the best possible resources, promoting scientific research and education as publicly open activities, bringing down costs for students, bringing down costs of course development for institutions, providing outreach to disadvantaged communities, assisting developing countries, becoming independent of publishers, creating more flexible materials, conducting research and building sustainable partnerships. The instigator of the OER mainstreaming process at an institution is the top-level decision to adopt the philosophy. Although the decision to adopt OER at an institution is typically made at a senior management level, the quantum of success of the implementation depends entirely on the execution. Addressing this challenge, this webinar will introduce the “horizontal framework” and a checklist where stakeholders take a team-based approach to completing the required tasks for mainstreaming OER at an academic institution. It will also highlight a case study in the Kingdom of Tonga where OER mainstreaming using this approach has led to higher success rates, sustainability and continuous quality improvement.
