Although many good open educational resources are available worldwide, the shift to actual reuse OER in existing Higher Education curricula is still limited and only slowly gaining momentum. In other words: adoption by teachers, support staff and management can use a helping hand.

In the Dutch Special Interest Group Open Education we concluded that Higher Education needs an effective tool for accelerating and monitoring the uptake of OER reuse. This is how the adoption accelerator workshop was born. In this action lab at OE global 2018 we will guide you through the workshop setup in 90 minutes using a hands-on approach. Afterwards, we will have an interactive discussion about how to use the workshop materials in your own context. It takes a full day to run the workshop. The adoption accelerator workshop will be available under a cc-by license.

In the adoption accelerator seven themes influencing adoption are explored: basic knowledge about Open Education and OER, content curation, Open Educational Practices, setting up support services, community building, policy development, and organizational development. You learn about our curated collection of (open education) tools concerning these seven aspects of adoption. Also, the adoption accelerator uses a maturity model to map and visualize your starting situation and ambitions. A SWOT analysis is then used to discover the most plausible scenario for accelerating adoption in your situation. In the workshop, you lay the foundation for an acceleration plan to be used in your own context, so you can apply your new insights right away.

This action lab is suitable for newcomers to the world of open education and for more experienced implementers of OERs. For instance: educational consultants, librarians, policy developers, educational management, OER project managers, support staff, innovative teachers. No special advance knowledge needed although knowing the basics of open education helps.
