How can faculty become engaged - and more importantly - involved, in the use and promotion of OER? What kind of program will meet an important need and encourage long-term buy-in? How can faculty contribute to the enrichment and sustainability of OER so that it continues to grow and evolve? The answer is a community built around peer review. By incorporating a familiar and significant concept that faculty value in their own research and career paths, Texas State’s Scholarly Communications Team developed a program that coupled rewarding professional benefit with a sense of community, professional knowledge, and continued learning.
