Using Student Outcomes Data in OER Courses

Using Student Outcomes Data in OER Courses

As OER programs mature, we’re starting to get more data on student outcomes – and not all of the results are positive. What do you do with the data when it shows that a course needs instructional design intervention? Jennifer Lantrip and Quill West describe how they have approached faculty with student outcomes data and discuss course improvement beyond the initial switch to OER. This process includes considering who might be able to best make use of the results to make improvements, building and maintaining trust with faculty, discovering issues and possible solutions through conversation, and considering changes to improve the OER adoption process for the future.
