Open Educational Resources at HISSI 2020


The University of Hawaii Community Colleges OER team has put together a series of Open Educational Resources events for HISSI 2020.  On March 5, at Leeward Community College, there will be a pre-conference hands-on training session for LibreTexts, a new platform that we have adopted for developing textbooks. Sign up for your seat for Session 1, 9am to 11:30am. Seating is limited.

On March 6, we have an OER program featuring Amanda Coolidge, Associate Director of Open Education at BCCampus in British Columbia and Delmar Larson, Founder and Director of  LibreTexts.

We will be hosting a textbook petting zoo, with print copies of LibeText, OpenStax, and other open textbooks, next to the registration desk. Check out Maui CC’s latest print textbook for PSY 212 Research Methods. Pick up some swag, and, if you are an OER or TXT0 adopter, adapter, or creator, ask for your OER /TXT0 badge ribbon so that you can join the other OER/TXT0 faculty and staff who are helping our students succeed.
