From November 2017 through November 2018 eCampusOntario has named six educators to help create awareness and increase use of OER at Ontario colleges and universities. The OER Fellows are two university instructors, two college instructors, and two professional support staff (a librarian and an educational developer). The Fellows are from six different Ontario institutions that represent regional differences in approaches to post-secondary teaching and learning. In this 60-minute panel session, the Fellows will describe their work with eCampusOntario that includes in-person workshops at various campuses, a series of webinars related to use of OER in teaching practice, blogging and other forms of social media participation, and a small-scale action research project related to their individual interest in OER for teaching and learning. They will focus on their individual journeys and interactions on their campuses, and their experiences with peers at a variety of workshops and webinars between November 2017 and April 2018. The panel will engage in dialogue with conference attendees related to their success and challenges promoting OER on campuses where awareness and use are only beginning to form.
