Activities and Resolutions
Gathering student impact stories is a great way to engage students – and highlight the value and importance of OER. Student impact stories from the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources features students who have benefited from OER use and ZTC degrees and have participated in student advocacy supporting the progression of OER.
Surveys can be a great way to both provide information and gather information. Consider these sample surveys as you explore ways to engage students.
