Instructional Designers/Learning Designers/Instructional Developers (IDs) occupy a unique position in higher education as a support to faculty in the course development process. As an awareness of OER grows in higher education in Canada and the US, and a body of research pointing to the benefits, barriers and challenges in implementing OER more broadly emerges, it is important to shed the light on the role of instructional designers in relation to open education practices (OEPs). In their role as support to faculty in the course development (and often delivery) process, instructional designers can play an important part in alleviating some of the well-known barriers of OEP: faculty time required to find appropriate OER to adopt or remix, resistance to change, and institutional support (Annand and Jensen, 2017, Barker et al, 2018; Jhangiani et al, 2016). Yet little is known about how IDs engage with OEPs in the course development process and how they see their role in relation to OEPs. This presentation will focus on the results of a qualitative study that examined how instructional designers at BC public post-secondary institutions incorporate OEPs into the course development process or in the process of working with faculty. Results discussed will include: the role of senior leadership; how IDs position and advocate for OEPs in their institutions; and how IDs can be better supported in working with OEPs.
