OER Program Librarian
NC LIVE invites applications and nominations for the position of Open Educational Resources Librarian to lead Open Education North Carolina, a new initiative to reduce the cost of higher education and improve student success across North Carolina’s colleges and universities. Administered by NC LIVE, this initiative will establish a statewide Open Educational Resources (OER) content hub; curate e-textbooks suited to North Carolina’s most-taught courses; coordinate statewide OER training events; stimulate adoption through faculty grants and a promotional campaign; and evaluate the initiative’s ROI by measuring performance metrics like adoption rate, cost-savings, and student performance.
The ideal candidate for this position will be a passionate advocate for open education who also possesses the operational skills necessary to manage a statewide startup initiative. This person will be expected to own this important initiative, working autonomously, making critical decisions in real-time, overcoming obstacles, and being accountable for results. Because this initiative is partially grant-funded, the Program Manager will also be responsible for fulfilling grant reporting requirements. This is a 2-year appointment with the potential of renewal.
Reporting to the Executive Director of NC LIVE, the Open Educational Resources Librarian will work with an OER Advisory Committee to build a statewide initiative. He or She will build and maintain consensus across multiple stakeholder groups, advocate effectively for OER to a variety of audiences, and maintain focus on activities that will generate significant ROI. He or She will coordinate with partners and vendors as needed. He or She will report on performance results against plan.
