Greetings OER Liaisons and Senate Presidents –

We are distributing this survey to both OER Liaisons and Senate Presidents to ensure that both parties are aware of the survey and so that Senate Presidents at colleges that do not yet have a Liaison can either identify someone to complete the survey or complete it themselves. It is our hope that this information not only helps gather crucial data to further the OERI’s work, but also informs your local conversations, work, advocacy, and policies on supporting and growing OER (and ZTC) at your college.

In Fall 2018 we first gathered information pertaining to the local implementation of Senate Bill 1359 (Block, 2016) from our colleges with the hope of using these data as a rough measure of the use of open educational resources (OER) at the colleges. While we knew it would be an imperfect measure, we have since become aware of the substantial variation in the implementation of this legislation. Consequently, we are repeating the questions we asked last year with some slight modifications and seeking additional information related to the “how” of your local implementation.

In prior years, we have asked for data regarding all course sections that carry the no-cost or zero textbook cost (ZTC) mark. This year, we are modifying our approach. If you have ready access to a total count of your ZTC sections, we would welcome it. If those data are not readily available, we would ask that you provide the total number of sections and the number of ZTC sections of the courses that have been specified. Please click on the indicated C-ID designation to obtain your local course identifier(s) associated with that C-ID.

Please complete the survey by 5:00 pm, Thursday, November 4, 2021. On behalf of the ASCCC OERI, we thank you for your time.
