Abstract or Description

The primary goal of this project was to adopt the no-cost Open Educational Resources (OER) textbook, which can dramatically lower the student expense. Our aim was also to align the available online OER and the supplementary materials with the course objectives tailored to our departmental needs. The project was designed, developed, implemented and assessed the materials created for the Organic Chemistry course sequence. This session the pilot data for the project will be shared, which measures their effectiveness in student satisfaction,faculty satisfaction, student performance, and student retention.. Future growth of the project involves constant updating of the developed material to keep it relevant in today's learning environment.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:

  • To provide free online Open Educational Resources (OER) material and replace the costly textbook for the lecture
  • To develop new supplementary material that will help to keep class lectures aligned with student learning outcomes
  • To gather student and faculty satisfaction data during pilot implementation
