Event Title

Colorado OER Conference

Date Created



Equity work and open educational resources may seem like an obvious pairing, but how much do we as OER advocates connect these dots and articulate this relationship? The University of Northern Colorado (UNC) was one of five U.S. institutions to receive a grant to pilot the Equity Through OER Rubric. Members (36 higher education systems in the U.S. and Canada) of the Driving OER Sustainability for Student Success (DOERS3) created the rubric to help define, unpack, and explain the multiple dimensions of equity and foreground the role of OER in closing equity gaps. The final rubric project portfolio includes a theoretical framework, the rubric, and case studies of institutions/systems that have utilized the rubric. Attendees will learn how the rubric can be utilized to assess institutional equity efforts and capacity for embedding Equity Through OER into the operations of an institution/system. Attendees will be invited to reflect and share their ideas and approaches regarding connecting equity and OER at their institutions.
