West now has a 8-person team for it's participation in the free-of-charge 2022-2023 Institute on Open Educational Resources (IOER).

Welcome to the AAC&U IOER Team Site!

West Los Angeles College has been selected to participate, free of charge, in the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U)’s 2022-2023 Institute on Open Educational Resources (IOER).  AAC&U’s year-long Institute on Open Educational Resources (OER) is designed for campuses aspiring to launch or expand initiatives to develop or leverage free and affordable materials in teaching and learning contexts.  After West was accepted into the Institute, West's 8-person team created an IOER action plan for West to analyze OER/ZTC data in the fall in order to determine gaps in course/subject offerings and to plan the identification of 1-5 ZTC ADT degrees for the Spring 2023 semester.
