Since the release of the OER Contributions Matrix from the DOERS3 (Driving OER Sustainability for Student Success) Collaborative, OER initiatives at the institution, state, and organizational level have revised and redistributed new versions of the matrix in an effort to draw attention to the valuable work being done in OER. In this panel, representatives from the University System of Georgia and Open Oregon Educational Resources will present their versions of the contributions matrix and how they are supporting OER work through tenure and promotion recognition. Panel members will discuss the development process of their guidelines, differences in the two renditions and how they cater to their states’ needs, and use-cases for how the guidelines are being used within their states. Attendees will be encouraged to join the conversation with their own examples of OER recognition in tenure and promotion practices and to ask questions in support of implementation in their own institutions.
