Our Phoenix College OER committee began in September 2020. Our first initiative was to create an OER faculty fellowship to mentor colleagues and assist them in creating or discovering OER for use in their courses.
The PC OER committee exists to facilitate collaboration between Phoenix College faculty in order to develop and implement strategies that increase OER resource adoption, use, and creation by PC faculty and students, as well as support the college and district OER initiatives.
Share Mission and Vision of the PC OER Committee and Open Maricopa
Open Maricopa facilitates widespread use of open, low-cost, quality materials to promote student success, textbook affordability, and increased access to a quality educational experience
We believe that access to high-quality, no-cost/low-cost, equitable, inclusive, and open educational practices engages students in their learning, fosters collaboration, breaks down barriers, and opens pathways to lifelong learning.
