MHEC collaborated with WCET and, with funding from the Hewlett Foundation, hosted the OER Policy and Implementation Summit for the MHEC States. Up to five representatives from each MHEC state attended the meeting to learn from their peers in other states as well as from national OER experts about effective OER implementation strategies. Topics addressed included student and faculty leadership in OER initiatives, funding sources for launching OER efforts, and best state and institutional policy practices.
Attendees coalesce as a state OER action team and crafted a state OER implementation plan at the summit. MHEC will support the efforts of the state action teams with regular conference calls in which team members provide updates on their progress and continue to create strategies for increasing the use of OER in their states.
