OER Committee


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.

Our Charter

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.
