This past August, a team of Boise State instructors and Idaho K-12 instructors published the first of four French open educational resource (OER) textbooks, titled “FI: An Interactive Workbook for French 101.” Available as a complete curriculum, the team not only revised and remixed an existing OER text, but also created significant ancillary materials including assessments, task-based activities, cultural reflections, slide decks, and embedded authentic materials. In this session, the group will explore how they approached project management of this large scale endeavor and prioritized incorporating inclusive and multicultural representation while eliminating student costs.
