Session Table Name: NAPOLI

This session will feature three necessary roles in standing up a successful initiator: the energizer, the funder, and the facilitator. Sometimes these multiple roles are inhabited by only one or two people, we recognize. We will suggest ways of finding advocates and allies, even when that’s the case. And we will discuss with participants what additional roles might be required, beyond these three.

This session introduces an experienced library business manager, highlighting a voice that doesn’t often get represented in the public OER conversation. We will speak to infrastructure and nuts and bolts of building a more organized program. Focusing on building a viable foundation and addressing the practical details of rules and policies surrounding funding an initiative is a crucial step, and one that this session will emphasize. Successful OER programs touch many corners of an institution, and require partnerships with representatives who don’t have familiarity with the unique economics and impact of open education. Establishing and navigating relationships with these stakeholders is vital. This conversation will empower participants to apply the motivations they’ll be exposed to throughout the conference towards the development of their own local practices.

Participants will leave with a tangible document that outlines steps to take at their home institutions, to either develop a new OER initiative or expand an existing one.

The session will consist of four facets:
1-How to build energy
2-How to address skeptics and find resources
3-How to keep the momentum
4-Discussion and takeaways
