This request is to support the smooth transition of two influential organizations into one and to more fully promote the adaptation, use, and production of OER among community colleges in the United States. The OpenCourseWare Consortium and the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources both support the integration of OER into accepted teaching and learning practices in higher education. To reduce overlaps, enlarge influence, and create a cohesive program of support for institutions across the higher education landscape, these two organizations have decided to merge and leverage their strengths.

With College of the Canyons, CCCOER will undertake a two-year program to support California Community Colleges in culturally responsive teaching practices through the use of OER and open pedagogy. Participating faculty will engage in a two-semester online program to learn and implement best practices for using open pedagogy to achieve inclusive classroom experiences. Faculty, students, and administrators will participate in the evaluation of the program impact. (Substrategy: Sustainable Systems)
