    An Open Educational Resource Initiative at Evergreen Valley College

    The Evergreen Valley College Open Educational Resources Initiative (EVC-OER) was funded by President Tammeil Gilkerson beginning in 2022. As part of EVC’s focused work advancing opportunity, equity, and social justice, the initiative aims to promote the development of a more robust collection of Open Educational Resources (OER) to support EVC’s faculty instruction and student learning. In addition, we hope to build a faculty community of practice engaged in curating, developing, and publishing OER materials to sustainably transform their courses into zero-cost or low-cost courses, eliminating structural barriers that may impede students’ success.
