Guidance for OER Liaisons (OERLs)
During the course of the OERI’s 1st round of OER Liaison (OERL) Orientations, we received many suggestions for additional resources that the Liaisons were needing and we heard a pretty basic question from some of you – what should I be doing if I am an OERL? As our OERLs come to us with a range of experiences, we reasoned that we should develop or identify resources that honor that – and meet you where you are at. With that in mind, we offer the following resources tailored to our beginning, intermediate, and advanced OERLs.

- OERL Webinar – Library Support Models
Monday, November 29, 3:00 – 4:00 pm
Join your OER Liaison colleagues in an investigation of library support models for OER. This webinar will begin with an overview of various library support models and how they are employed. We will then hear from liaisons (who also happen to be librarians) as they share how their libraries support faculty who are using, remixing, and creating OER.
- OERL Webinar – Strategies for Disseminating OER / Using Change Theory to Motivate OER Adoptions
Wednesday, December 1, 1:00 – 2:00PM
With varying levels of support, scope, and focus, it’s difficult to know how our OER initiatives should be expected to progress. Developing a strategic vision for implementing OER at your institution can help you prioritize goals and engender buy-in, even from laggardly faculty. This webinar will present a tested theory explaining how people respond to change and how to use their responses to develop a comprehensive plan that will encourage OER adoption at your institution.
- OERL Conversation – Revisiting Copyright, Fair Use, Open Licensing, Piracy, and Plagiarism
Thursday, December 9, 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Register for OERL Conversation – Revisiting Copyright, Fair Use, Open Licensing, Piracy, and Plagiarism
OER and ZTC initiatives have spurred more faculty to develop their own content resources for their classes. We’re seeing some of the lines blurred between fair use, open licensing, and copyright. How can we prevent plagiarism and piracy? Join us for a conversation about legalities, interpretations, and communication to faculty
