Abstract

In 2016, the libraries at Furman University, Johnson C. Smith University, Davidson College, and Duke University launched joint Faculty Open Educational Review Programs at their institutions. The Programs educated faculty on the concepts of OER, assisted them in identifying OER relevant to their areas of expertise, and trained them how to strategically review and assess OERs. Christy Allen, from Furman University and Julie Reed, from Johnson C. Smith University, will discuss their work in effectively planning, promoting, and implementing the Programs at their respective institutions, and provide a summary of findings across all 4 Programs.
