Within this program faculty were offered three different on ramps for engaging open educational resources based on their past experience. Beginning faculty could choose an OER review program focused on exploration. More experienced faculty had the option to either engage support staff in course redesign using OERs, or if so inclined, embark upon a project authoring their own OERs for use and sharing.
