Description: Two of the most common obstacles to OER use among faculty are the lack time and incentives to adapt or create OER. In this session, we will discuss methods for transforming these barriers into pedagogical opportunities by using internship structures and course objectives to include teacher education students in the review and creation of OER. These pedagogical partnerships expose current and future educators to OER as mechanisms for developing culturally-relevant and community-based educational content that traditional textbooks cannot offer. We will provide examples from the literature and work at our current institution to frame this discussion, but hope to engage attendees in a larger conversation regarding the merits and logistics of promoting and building collaborative OER development into education (and other academic) programs.
