Leveraging OER in Tenure and Promotion: Practical Tips for Faculty

Instructors who create or improve OER as part of their professional work deserve to be recognized for their contributions. In this workshop, attendees will learn how they can incorporate the impact and value of their work with OER into promotion and tenure reviews. In addition to being guided through examples from instructors who have already gone through this process, participants will receive tips on how to showcase the quality, impact, and importance of their work with OER.
