Effectively Encouraging Use of OER on Your Campus
Nicole Finkbeiner utilizes her experience working with colleges and universities across the country to outline the key components of a successful OER initiative. She’ll cover key metrics, real-world examples of successful strategies, and suggestions on how to adapt an OER initiative to your specific budget and campus culture. This webinar is best suited to individuals who are starting or managing OER programs on campus.
Nicole Finkbeiner is the Director of Institutional Relations for Rice University’s free textbook initiative, OpenStax, where she founded and runs the nationally-recognized Institutional Partner Program. She also coaches colleges and universities to effectively encourage faculty adoptions of Open Educational Resources (OER) to promote student success and faculty academic freedom. A graduate of Kellogg Community College, Western Michigan University, and Michigan State University, she worked in college relations for community colleges prior to joining OpenStax. When not promoting OER, Nicole fills her time working on civil rights issues, traveling, reading, staying healthy, and dragging her friends and family to random cultural events.
