The WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies will collaborate with the four regional higher education compacts to increase access, affordability, and equity through the use of OER. The planning period supported by this grant serves the long-term purpose of scaling the adoption of high-quality OER using sustainable models and materials appropriate for regions of the country and individual states. This effort will lead to evidence-based frameworks, guidelines, and structures for efficiently and effectively leveraging the compacts’ existing relationships with states and institutions.

Grants to this Grantee
for increasing access, affordability, and equity using OER
In partnership, the four higher education regional compacts — Midwestern Higher Education Compact, New England Board of Higher Education, Southern Regional Education Board, and Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education — aim to increase access, affordability, and equity using OER. The compacts have formed the National Consortium of Open Education Resources to advance OER across their member states. With this grant, WICHE (as a member of the consortium) will build capacity for policy and effective practice, enable substantial research, and develop open education solutions that promote equitable learning across the country.
