Public Webinar

Are you eager to increase equitable access and participation in your program? Join us for our first NACEP PEP Talk and explore Open Educational Resources as Program Equity Practice (PEP).    

What are NACEP PEP Talks

PEP Talks are a field-focused resource series designed for practitioners interested in advancing equity in their programs. PEP Talks break equity work into smaller, bite-size initiatives to support increasing equitable access and participation in dual and concurrent enrollment. Each PEP Talk is designed with the practitioner in mind and includes a summary of the topic, examples from the field, links to resources, and actionable steps to get started. 

OER as a Program Equity Practice

Join authors Tanya Grosz (Open Education Network) and Amy Williams (NACEP) to discuss ways to increase equity by removing the financial barrier for textbook cost through Open Educational Resources (OER). Open educational resources are teaching, learning, and research materials that are either in the public domain or licensed in a manner that provides everyone with free and perpetual permission to engage in the "5R activities," as defined by Creative Commons: retain, remix, revise, reuse, and redistribute the resources. OER are available to learners immediately for free, can be retained forever, and can be modified to be made more inclusive and culturally relevant and have been touted as an equity-focused solution to textbook costs in higher education.  This makes OER a natural fit for dual and concurrent enrollment as well. This session will make the case for OER as a program equity strategy and provide attendees with actionable steps for using OER to decrease costs for students, districts, and colleges.
