Much is shared about large OER initiatives and the subsequent cost savings for students. But we hear little about the faculty experience. What is it really like to convert an existing course using open material? Where do faculty find resources? What support is available to them? How long does it take? To see widespread benefits of OER, the discovery and adoption processes must become easier for faculty who are on the front lines of change. This panel will bring together faculty experiences from a range of campuses to share challenges and practical solutions.
