ASERL Friends: Many of us have an interest in advancing Open Educational Resources. Please join us to hear presentations from a few ASERL libraries that have undertaken new activities to support OERs as part of their goals for improving the affordability of higher education. 1) Amie Freeman and Tucker Taylor will describe the efforts initiated by the University of South Carolina Libraries to propel the OER movement forward on their campus. They will detail their involvement in faculty and administrative outreach and the development and implementation of several affordable learning services and programs. These offerings include the SCoer! faculty grant program, the Professors for Student Affordability distinction, and a syllabus review service. 2) The University of Mississippi is halfway through a six year plan to expand the adoption of Open Education Resources in Mississippi public higher education. By seeding OER throughout Mississippi's higher education system, this project seeks to expand upon the Z-degree model for students to achieve two- and four-year degrees with zero textbook costs. "Z-Degree Mississippi" is being funded by the Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Ole Miss College of Liberal Arts. In this presentation, Jocelyn Tipton, Assistant Dean for Public Services at University of Mississippi Libraries, will discuss the role of the UM Libraries and the benefits of challenges of working on a statewide, multi-institution OER initiative. 3) Beth Bernhardt (UNC Greensboro) and Joseph Thomas (East Carolina University) will share results from the second year of a grant-funded project, Combined Alternative Textbooks, and their schools' involvement in another grant-funded project, "Actualizing Innovations Meant to Scale" (AIMS), awarded by the UNC General Administration. Both UNC Greensboro and East Carolina University are seeing progress on the goals of the Combined Alternative Textbooks grant. Library-purchased ebooks that are required for the course are seeing reuse in subsequent semesters, and some professors are being proactive about asking if the library can purchase WEBINAR: "ASERL OER Round-Up -- Spring 2018" DATE / TIME: March 29, 2018 | 2pm ET / 1pm Central Time REGISTER: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4340584222980793091 REGISTRATION LIST - As of March 23, 2018 1.
