2022-23 Program

Updated program Design

The Office of the State Board of Education (OSBE) developed and adapted relevant curriculum to provide tailored, hands-on, professional learning experiences in the following digital publishing topics:

• Defining project scope and team management

• Marketing, communications, and recruiting contributors

• Accessibility and inclusive design

• Content creation and authorship

• Editing and peer review

• Formatting and publication prep

• Post-release considerations (e.g., adoptions, improvements, maintenance, etc.)

 Beginning in early January these regular meetings will help fellows learn about one another, their goals for the in-common courses that they teach, and develop a plan for collaboratively remixing open educational resources (OER) and practices (OEP) to meet their collective needs.

Incentives

Beyond the valuable training from open education experts, each OPAL fellow received the following:

  • A $2,500 travel stipend to attend at least one event related to open education
  • The opportunity to peer review at least one discipline-relevant open textbook
  • Early/extended access to new tools and services to improve OER creation and sharing
  • Research support from OSBE for faculty who wish to evaluate the efficacy of their OER use
  • Promotion of fellows as inter/state leaders who are well versed in open education
  • A letter of recognized service from the OSBE Executive Director
  • Additional recognition from institution and state education leaders
  • And more!
