A growing body of research shows that integrating Open Educational Resources in teaching and learning improves student retention and outcomes. The use of OER saves students money and reduces the number of course withdrawals at an institution. Don’t miss the opportunity to help shape the future of education. Attend the workshop on Open Policy to explore frameworks to support sustainable, open approaches to teaching and learning. In this workshop, participants will develop an open education policy for their institution and/or organization using the Open Education Policy Development Tool (http://policy.lumenlearning.com). To kickstart the workshop, the presenter/facilitator will provide examples of open education policies around the world and set the context for what differentiates an open policy from a standard policy in an organization. Individually participants will review their institutional/organization mission and mandate and identify how their mandate and core values align with that of open education values. In small groups, participants will then work together to collaborate on an open education policy statement that supports the sustainability of open practices at an institution and/or organization.
