Statewide OER Coordinating Committee (legacy)

The OER Coordinating Committee was comprised of the Texas OER Summit Planning Committee, plus new partners from around Texas. We began meeting monthly starting in January 2019. The Committee's final meeting was in October 2019.

Scope of work / sub-committees:

  1. Report: Drafting of Summit report and white paper (i.e. analyzing outcomes of the Statewide OER summit and making strategic recommendations back to the community based on those outcomes)
  2. Events: Coordination of further communication and collaboration opportunities among summit participants and other interested parties (e.g. at TLA, through webinars, etc.)
  3. Coalition-building: Identifying and enlisting key stakeholders for a more formalized coalition to support and act on the priorities set by the community
