Special Offer: OER Degree Program Support Package

OER degree programs are a common sense solution for any two-year institution with students who struggle with textbook affordability and access to the materials they need to succeed in college. In response to growing interest, Lumen Learning has created a unique support package to help institutions successfully develop and launch OER degree programs for several associate degree pathways.

This package is based on the technical and program support Lumen is providing to grantees of the Achieving the Dream OER Degree Initiative. It offers a similar scope of guidance, training, faculty and technical support, at an affordable price that offers significant value. It includes:

A Cohort ApproachLumen will use a cohort approach to facilitate this program, with groups of institutions kicking off and working through the OER degree development process together. This gives institutions the opportunity to collaborate and learn from peers, while enjoying support from the Lumen team and a peer community. As appropriate, we will also share and build on lessons, insights, open resources and collaboration opportunities generated by the ATD OER Degree grant program.Limited SpaceIn order to ensure high levels of support and success for institutions pursuing this path, Lumen Learning is offering a limited number of spots for the OER Degree Program Support Package.

  • Cohort starting Fall 2016: Up to 10 institutions
  • Cohort starting Spring 2017: Up to 15 institutions
