At Red Deer Polytechnic, OER initiatives are developed and implemented by the OER Champions Group. This group was formed in 2019 as a joint endeavor between the Library, the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL), and the Students' Association (SA). In 2021, the group broadened its membership to include faculty representation.
The OER Champions Group aims to:
increase awareness of OER on campus
advocate for the adoption of OER in courses
increase faculty support around creating and integrating OER
The Library and the CTL jointly surveyed Red Deer Polytechnic faculty members to assess the awareness, perceptions, & use of OER at RDP. This report presents survey highlights, successful interventions and areas of growth, and recommendations to continue supporting OER at RDP.

Red Deer Polytechnic recognizes that our campus is situated on Treaty 7 land, the traditional territory of the Blackfoot, Tsuu T’ina and Stoney Nakoda peoples, and that the central Alberta region we serve falls under Treaty 6, traditional Métis, Cree and Saulteaux territory. We honour the First Peoples who have lived here since time immemorial, and we give thanks for the land where RDP sits. This is where we will strive to honour and transform our relationships with one another.
