1. Identify Barriers to an OER approach in Vocational Intercollegiate Collaboration
2. Compare and contrast best practices in collaborative scenarios
3. Reconstruct strategies for effective collaborative practices in OER

What we plan to cover in this session is to first be introduced to my research findings regarding collaborative practice from among several provincial vocational trades institutes. Second, to engage in some small group round table or chair activities where participants will have the opportunity to collectively share their professional collaborative experiences (good and bad) for the purpose of discovering some key strategies for better OER collaboration. Third, to come back together as a group to report out on some possible strategies for trades education to investigate for future OER projects.
Trades training is at an important crossroad in terms of pedagogy, program development, and content delivery. There is a growing opportunity for trades training to not only embrace OER as an option for content delivery, but there is also the opportunity for vocational education to become pioneers in the OER movement.
This session is designed to collectively tap into the varied, broad, and deep experiences of those participating and use appreciative inquiry methods to discover paths towards successful OER applications and future iterations. The participants in this session will have an opportunity to influence the trajectory of future OER in trades training.
There will be a twitter feed set up during the session where participants can interact with the content and process as well as developing an archive of questions and ideas for the future. There will also be a quick real-time poll using (possibly through Kahoot) at the beginning of the session.
