Interested in joining a Community of Practice? The new Open Educational Resources Community of Practice is currently seeking members!

Open educational resources (OER) are free and openly licensed educational materials that can be used for teaching, learning, research, and other purposes. Research shows that a typical college student spends between $600 and $1,200 a year on books and supplies. At these rates, reducing or eliminating textbook costs could be the equivalent of giving Harper students their fourth semester free! This community of practice will investigate Open Educational Resources (OER) and current best practices for implementing OER in our courses.

If you are interested in joining this group, please fill out an application.

Tacoma Community College and Everett Community College are leaders in the OER initiative. Learn more about the work they have done and how it has impacted faculty and students.
