Valuing OER in Tenure and Promotion: The DOERS3 OER Contributions Matrix

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Anyone familiar with the OER community knows that questions about the role of OER work in tenure, promotion and reappointment are constants at conferences and on listservs where OER practitioners and administrators congregate. However, as the criteria for tenure and promotion can vary wildly between different types of institutions and even between different departments within an institution, answering questions about the role of OER in the tenure and promotion process can seem daunting. In order to approach this conundrum, Driving OER Sustainability for Student Success (DOERS3) has developed an adaptable advisory model to help guide faculty as they attempt to include their OER work in their tenure and promotion portfolios. DOERS3 is a collaborative of state, province, and system wide OER initiatives who work together to help its members and the larger OER community realize the potential of OER in a sustainable fashion. What we call The OER Contributions Matrix is the result of the research and collaborative work of the DOERS3 Capacity Building Work Group and the feedback of many faculty and OER stakeholders. In this presentation we will share the OER Contributions Matrix, discuss how we came to produce it, and share what we think are some potential uses of the document. We will also lead a short brainstorming session for how participants might adapt the document for their institutions.
