Through the collaborative efforts of Lane Community College faculty and librarians, along with support from Open Oregon, we developed an Open Educational Resource (OER) textbook for non-traditional students transitioning into college. During this session, we will discuss our process for getting the project started and how the OER was created. Session participants will also have an opportunity to interact with our free, open source, online textbook, which is designed to engage individuals to see themselves as college students and understanding the complexity of what that means to their lives. Topics from the book include: choosing a college to attend, understanding the evolution of becoming a college student, the differences between high school and college expectations, the language of college, college expenses beyond tuition, navigating college websites, scholarship preparation activities, and more. After our session, participants will leave with ideas on how to partner with campus colleagues to successfully adapt, adopt, or create an OER.
