OER Work in Faculty Reviews

OER work can and should be counted in faculty reviews. The work faculty engage in adopting, adapting, and creating OER materials supports strong teaching practices, scholarship, and service work. This rubric has been designed by the Georgia Southern OER Working Team to provide guidance to faculty submitting OER work in their annual and tenure/promotion reviews. It has also been created to provide guidance to department heads and review committees responsible for evaluating the contributions faculty have made in regards to annual performance and/or tenure/promotion. 

Other documents on this page also provide detail and examples of how faculty as well as review committees can count OER work, and provided the framework for this working team to design this rubric for use by Georgia Southern faculty.
