Abstract

In this session, we will discuss our plans to support students using a library-led community of practice to develop career and technical education open educational resources (OER). The Open Textbook Collaborative Project, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, convenes a coalition of academics, professional associations, and industry partners around in-demand STEM industries. By establishing this community of practice professional development model, collaboration over the thirty-six month grant period and beyond enables sharing ideas and strategies, determining solutions, and building innovations and sustainability to improve alignment of curriculum with rapidly changing labor market requirements, technological demand, and professional processes to increase student completion rates.
