OER by Mind Map: OER

1. Faculty

1.1. Faculty benefit and are major contributors to developing and implementing the use of OER in the curriculum.

2. Students

2.1. Students are the main group of people who benefit the most from OER.

3. Administration

3.1. Administration can help open opportunities for faculty to develop OER. This group of leaders will also have a vested interest in the success of OER on the campus.

3.1.1. Bonnie Bauer Jim Eden Many more leaders!

4. Curriculum Department

5. Deans and Associate Deans

5.1. This group has an interest in use of OERs as it can consist of higher quality course content and curriculum, which aligns with their interests. The more faculty are aware and interested in OER, and as well as copyright regulation, the easier it is to collaborate on creating better courses. This group can also help increase the use of OER by making suggestions while textbooks and materials are selected for new courses and course revisions.

5.1.1. Jennifer Hendryx Greg Reed Instructional Designers

5.2. Interest and influence in better OER are both relevant in this group. Deans and ADs can help create opportunities to develop better OER by accommodating and supporting time and compensation needs of faculty.

6. Accessibility Office

6.1. Accessibility professionals could help make sure the OER developed and used at MPTC is accessible. This group would also be interested in the use of more OER as it could increase accessibility of educational materials for students.

7. Diversity Office

7.1. Leaders in diversity at MPTC would have influence and interest in OER at the College. This group would have valuable influence in helping the College give diverse subject matter experts equal opportunities and visibility in the resources they develop. OER can also help make curriculum more diverse, equitable, and inclusive for all students.

8. Library

8.1. The library will have influence on and interest in OER. Similar to the bookstore, they may be in a position to make alternative recommendations when textbooks are unavailable or costly. Library specialists can also assist faculty and the Curriculum Department with copyright questions and needs.

8.1.1. Hans Baierl

9. Bookstore

9.1. The book store would be interested and have influence. If the bookstore sees a textbook get discontinued or upgraded, they could locate equivalent OER to help connect faculty with that possibility.

9.1.1. eCampus Online Bookstore

10. Department of Corrections Course Offering Program

10.1. When OER is used in all MPTC courses, modifying them for DOC courses will not be as big of a challenge. OER can be distributed in this manner without any issues with copyright. Additionally, OER can often be modified to be internet-free, even if it is originally created for use on the internet. The DOC environment does not allow for internet use, so this makes OER and in-house resources easier to use in both regular and DOC environments.

11. Marketing

11.1. Marketing would be interested in success in OER efforts to let prospective students and the community know that MPTC cares about providing a high-quality curriculum and prioritizes its students.

11.1.1. Mandy Potts

12. Families of Students

12.1. Families of students often benefit when the student benefits. There is vested interest in use of OER here.

13. Student Services

13.1. Student services could support an initiative to provide more OER as part of the curriculum. This group can connect students with an organized effort to encourage OER.
