Session Description

In February 2015, Achieve released a set of state policy recommendations for Open Educational Resources (OER). These recommendations are based on more than two years of work with states through the OER Institute, and has developed these recommendations for states to help share key strategies from states that have begun using OER as part of the college- and career-ready implementation plans to continue advancement of OER. Additionally, these recommendations aim to provide helpful information and guidance for states or districts that are interested but have not yet begun an organized effort to support the use of OER in classrooms. This presentation will provide a brief overview of these recommendations as well as the ways in which a number of states across the country, including Minnesota are using OER in their college- and career-ready standards implementation plans.
