Assessment Toolkit: Assessing and Advancing the use of Open Education Resources
Speaker: Karina Sanchez

The OER Assessment Toolkit was created to help UT Austin's incoming OER Fellows assess their classes' use of free course materials. The Fellowship supports faculty in using OER materials in their classes. Working with the Assessment Librarian and OER Librarian, we created a toolkit that uses assessment tools to measure the impact of free course materials. In the presentation, I will go over assessment and OER methodologies used in developing the toolkit and the possible impact of using an assessment toolkit. OER and assessment further equitable learning, which needs greater development in higher education institutions like UT Austin. Therefore, creating an OER Assessment Toolkit helps instructors comprehend the impact of implementing and promoting free course materials in their classes. The goal of the presentation; is to present about OER assessment characteristics, to teach about the toolkit's role in facilitating assessment for faculty and staff, and to show staff how using free resources like toolkits furthers equitable learning.

Opening Up a Community of Practice
Speakers: Terra Gullings, Gabby Hernandez, Jessica McClean, Ashley Morrison, Tessy Torres

Digital Librarianship is an ever evolving field of cutting edge and innovative projects. These librarian positions are often limited to small groups of people who are accomplishing massive amounts of work. This is the case for many practitioners of Open Education who are running large scale programs that support the entire university with minimal personnel -- often just one person or part of one person’s workload.

The UT System Open Education Practitioners decided to break down the silos of their work to create an open community of practice. The purpose of these informal gatherings is to provide an inclusive environment where those who are responsible for open education initiatives could come and support the work we do at each of our campuses. We have been able to share information to lessen the duplication of work done between institutions and share wins, challenges, and processes with a receptive audience.

In this presentation, these open education practitioners will guide participants through the process of beginning this community, sharing feedback from participation, as well as how to sustain this model in the future.
