Open Educational Resources (OER) Initiative
The Kingsborough Community College OER Initiative is a collaborative effort between the Office of Academic Affairs, Kingsborough Library, Kingsborough Center for Teaching and Learning (KCTL) and Kingsborough Center for e-Learning (KCeL) to support faculty in the development and implementation of OERs in a variety of courses. KCC's work as an Achieving the Dream Leader College has created a campus community focused on student success and increasing access to higher education. OERs are an integral part of this work. Faculty will be supported by KCC/CUNY workshops, professional development offerings, and technical support through KCTL and KCeL.
This Initiative is committed to:
- Support faculty in the development of affordable zero to low cost course materials
- Expand access and awareness of Open Educational Resources
- Improve student success
- Increase student access to learning materials access - promote equity (aligns with our AtD work)
