Description: This presentation provides insight into the process of developing a social justice-focused open educational resource (OER). Two authors and an editor/publisher share their experiences developing an OER in social justice and diversity as a part of developing a human services course aligned with the new State University of New York (SUNY) general education requirement for diversity. The outline and contents of the OER will be shared with the audience to crowdsource feedback and comments. The presenters will explain the stages of development of the OER, including accessing funding for development and working with students from underrepresented populations to distribute power in the curriculum development process. Challenges and barriers to the process will also be discussed.
