Converting Your Math Classes to OER With LibreTexts
March 7, 2024 @ 11:00 pm - 12:00 am GMT
Over a period of three semesters, the Mathematics department at Cosumnes River College transformed their entire STEM pathway to OER materials and textbooks using the LibreTexts platform. At this point, a student can earn an A.S. in Mathematics at CRC without paying anything for course materials (at least in the mathematics classes). Additionally, this transition to OER allowed several other STEM programs to offer fully ZTC degrees. In this talk, mathematics professor Roy Simpson, who transitioned six of the courses, will speak about his experiences with the process and provide some recommendations on how to speed up the transition process.
