Many institutions of higher education have created or want to start an Open Educational Resources (OER) program, but do not have robust resources to put towards these efforts. Establishing an intentional and structured action plan for OER project management is an immensely helpful approach to scoping work, setting goals, establishing benchmarks, and securing funding, regardless of the stage of the OER program. The Open Textbook Network (OTN) recently developed an online and in-person training program to help librarians develop institutional OER action plans. This panel includes members of the inaugural cohort for the OTN’s Certificate in OER Librarianship and will be moderated by Cheryl Cuillier, one of the program’s mentors. Participants in the Certificate Program started their work in February 2019, completed writing their plans in April 2019, and have been making progress on their SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-Bound) goals and project timelines. Panelists will discuss and field questions about the OER Action Plans they created and how these plans have guided their approaches to implementation, management, budgeting, and assessment of their OER programs. Each participant was at a different point in their OER program implementation and had needs and priorities specific to their institutions. Panelists will reflect how developing an individualized action plan advanced their campus OER efforts. Panelists will also reflect on roadblocks and challenges encountered while implementing their action plans. Session participants will be encouraged to create their own action plans and will be provided with examples of completed plans for local adaptation and adoption.
