Developing a Unified Content Strategy in the Time of Adaptive, Digital and OER
December 14, 2016 | 12:00pm EST
With more instructional design departments developing programs to spur adoption of OER and faculty experimenting with adaptive solutions, schools are grappling with how to discover the best resources, improve adoption rates, and best practices for implementation. Most institutions have pockets of digital, personalized learning tools, traditional textbooks and an array of OER options — and while going digital is on the radar, few have crystallized a vision for it nor have they mapped out how to get there. Before getting tangled in a web of questions, tackle an overarching one first : Where do you want your institution’s content strategy (or mix, or model) to be in four years? Then decide the who, the what and the how.
Join Jill Buban, OLC Senior Director of Research and Innovation, as she moderates a panel to discuss content strategy considerations including discovering and implementing OER, faculty incentives and support, evolving from print to digital and student inclusive access at scale, and the change management and training needed to achieve success.
