Hello, followers and team members,
Please use this space to introduce yourself (Name, position, place of work) and to share what portion of the OER Starter Kit for Program Managers you are working on! For those of you following the project who are not writing the book, feel free to introduce yourselves and your interest in the project as well! We will have another thread specifically for questions related to the project. To start, I will introduce myself!
My name is Abbey Elder, I am the Open Access & Scholarly Communication Librarian at Iowa State University, and I am one of the lead authors on the volume. I am currently contributing to the chapters on “Getting Started with OER,” “The History of Open Education,” “Building a Team,” “Marketing your Program,” “Helping Faculty Find OER,” and “Ancillary OER Basics.” Of course, all of these chapter titles are up in the air right now, but they give you a good idea of the kinds of topics I’ll be contributing to.
Our other lead authors–Stefanie Buck, Jeff Gallant, Apurva Ashok, and Marco Seiferle-Valencia–will be lending their voices and expertise to topics like “Training your Team,” “Building a Grant Program,” and “OER Course Conversion,” among other things.
Thank you for joining this project and please feel free to share more information about yourselves below!
