In March 2016, Daniel DeMarte (Tidewater Community College) and Amanda Coolidge (BCcampus) attended the Institute for Open Leadership in Capetown, South Africa. The purpose of the Institute is to see more open licensing policies flourish, which feed the commons, promote cross-discipline collaboration, and even increase the transparency of government and philanthropic investments. During the Institute, Daniel and Amanda made a commitment to create an OER Policy Guide for High Education. The OER Policy Guide is intended to help post-secondary institutions develop their own OER policies and has suggested action items to ensure successful policy implementation and sustainability. This presentation will showcase the OER Policy Guide and walk participants through the creation, implementation, and sustainability of an effective OER policy.
