In an effort to help promote awareness and use of Open Educational Resources (OER) within our campus community, Miami University has implemented the following initiatives:

OER Committee—Led by our Associate Provost, this committee is comprised of faculty and students and is charged with identifying ways in which to promote OER awareness and usage on campus.

OER Grant Program—This three-tiered grant program is sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the Miami University Libraries and is designed to help support faculty who are interested in learning more about OER (Tier 1), adopting an OER for course instruction (Tier 2), or adapting an OER to meet the needs of their course curriculum (Tier 3).

Workshops and educational programming—Throughout the year workshops and other educational programming is offered to members of the campus community to help raise awareness of OER and textbook affordability issues.

A LibGuide on OER was developed to provide quality additional information about OER online:

During the 2014-2015 academic year, two Miami University Librarians co-­‐facilitated a faculty learning community (FLC) on OER. A white paper published by the group explores “Open Educational Resources and their Implementation At Miami University”

In 2016, Miami University joined the Open Textbook Network to help support the growth and development of OER initiatives on and international level. The OhioLINK consortium, of which Miami University is a member of, has also joined the Open Textbook Network.
