The Community College Consortium for OER is a community of practice dedicated to promoting the adoption and development of open educational resources to enhance teaching and learning. We were founded to support the community college mission of open access through creating awareness and development of openly licensed, low-cost education materials to make college more affordable and accessible for students. We provide regularly scheduled online and face-2-face workshops for faculty and staff who are engaged in OER projects.5

Focused on the application of knowledge and skill to complex situationsCompetency statements are mapped to each course activity and assessment itemAssessments measure students performance against competencies (criterion-referenced)
