Curriculum Approval

Please consult your department's textbook selection policy and  CSUF's UPS 300.011 on Faculty Selection of Instructional Materials .

Consider whether you need to get approval from others at the college level for instructional material choices. Any policies that are specific to your college or department regarding course materials should be considered well in advance so you can make the transition to OER more smooth.

Leaders of the Affordable Learning Solutions AL$ initiative may be able to assist you with a transition to OER and help you spread the word to other faculty members. These initiatives motivate other faculty and staff to get involved in OER as they highlight the potential benefits to our university and students.
