An Open Online Course: Zero Textbook Cost Pathways: OER & Equity (OEAward19)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This open online course explores the fundamental connections between Equity, Open Educational Resources (OER), Guided Pathways, and Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC) programs. Participants employ an equity cognitive frame to examine the impact of costs on student success, and the disproportionate impact on historically underserved students. Participants also examine research on OER efficacy, consider the "what" and "why" of Guided Pathways, and review case studies on successful ZTC pathways in the USA.

Participants will leave this course understanding how OER and ZTC pathways promote student success and reduce equity gaps, supporting the expanded access and success within higher education.

This present example of the course contains references specific to the California Community Colleges and US higher education. Thanks to the open license, the course could easily be adapted to make the link between Equity, OER, and Zero Textbook Cost programs in other contexts.

This course was created as part of the California Community Colleges’ Zero Textbook Cost Degree program. The course was designed by Aloha Sargent of Cabrillo College and conceived by James Glapa-Grossklag of College of the Canyons.
