Boyoung Chae, Policy Associate, eLearning and Open Education, Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges
The Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges released a report last month on use of open educational resources based on interviews with 60 faculty in Washington’s community and technical college system which was built upon a previous state-wide survey with 770 faculty. Faculty were queried about
- how and why they chose to use OER
- six benefits (including student savings)
- six challenges of using OER
- nine supports from college and statewide stakeholders that could help them to expand their OER use
John Hilton III, Assistant Professor of Ancient Scripture, OER Researcher, Brigham Young University.
This presentation synthesizes the results of eight different peer-reviewed studies that examine
- the perceptions students and instructors of OER that replaced traditional textbooks
- the potential influence of OER on student learning outcomes, and
- the cost-savings resulting from OER.
Suggested paths forward to expand the pool of academic peer reviewed research on (1) the perceptions students and instructors have of OER, (2) the potential influence of OER on student learning outcomes, and (3) the cost-savings resulting from OER.
