This guide is designed to help OCC faculty find, create, evaluate, and incorporate OER resources for instruction.

SUNY OER Services: Faculty Support

SUNY OER Services: OER Community Course Experience

This online series of SUNY OER Community Courses will introduce you to the fundamental principles and effective practices related to Open Educational Resources.

Throughout this learning space, you will have the opportunity to explore and discuss methods and approaches to finding, adopting, customizing, integrating, creating, publishing, and licensing OER.

You will also have opportunities to connect in conversation with your peers, and work with OER advocates from the SUNY community who can help you along your learning journey.


Adopting Open Educational Resources in the Classroom

This course provides faculty with an introduction to the laws that influence the use, re-use, and distribution of content they may want to use in a course.

Activities include finding openly licensed content for use in a class and publishing openly licensed works created by faculty. At the end of the course, students will have openly licensed content that will be ready for use in a course.

SUNY OER Faculty Guild Fellowship


SUNY faculty (both full and part-time) who use Open Educational Resources (OER) in their courses are eligible to participate in a Faculty Guild fellowship starting in fall 2019. 

Through this website, you’ll learn more about Faculty Guild, the research behind their work, and what a fellowship involves. 

If you like what you see, you’ll have a chance to add your name to a list of potential faculty to receive a fellowship.
