Awarded Grant: $20,000 Principal Investigator: Andrea Wade, Monroe Community College Erin O’Hara-Leslie, SUNY Broome Community College SUNY Broome Community College is at the forefront of community colleges implementing new technologies that support and scale-up pedagogy. Our leadership in online education is attested by our selection to offer one of the first fully-online degree programs to be powered by Open SUNY as well as our selection to develop a model Home Health Aide Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) with prior IITG funding. As a continuation of the newly developed Home Health Aide MOOC (Phase 1), SUNY Broome proposes to develop a format of the Phase 1 MOOC that is compatible with Coursera’s new on-demand platform. Also integral to Phase 2 are (1) creating a companion Open Educational Resource (OER)/Open Textbook; and (2) building and implementing bookend recruitment and referral web resources that connect with regional workforce structures. Phase 2 key collaborators include Central New York’s Area Health Education Center, Mohawk Valley Community College, and the Open SUNY Textbooks project.

SUNY Open Educational Resources: Improving Faculty Discovery and Adoption

Written by buf-zhingoh on . Posted in

Principal Investigator: Mark McBride, Monroe Community College Monroe Community College (MCC) proposes a IITG project to design and deploy a library service model to increase faculty participation in SUNY Open Educational Resources (OER) and improve OER adoption system- wide. The purpose of the project is to build on the traditional strengths of SUNY campus libraries by supporting faculty in OER discovery and adoption. The new service model will give faculty access to discovery tools through SUNY Affordable Learning Solutions and Lumen Learning; modularize and improve interoperability and multimedia in the collection of existing Open SUNY textbooks; and embed assessments in OER courses. Project outcomes will increase OER adoption, improve OER alignment with course learning outcomes; and increase student completion and success in OER courses. The project will address priorities identified by SUNY partners: University of Buffalo, Colleges at Geneseo, Brockport, Buffalo, Suffolk, Environmental Science and Forestry, Fulton-Montgomery Community College, Tompkins Cortland Community College, and industry partner Lumen Learning.
