Participation in OER pilots and programs leads to policy change at an institutional level (OER use encourages institutions to change their policies)
Summary: OER policy can be seen as the next major development in the OER community, with the establishment of the Creative Commons Open Policy Network. While there are numerous top-down initiatives to drive OER adoption (especially with regards to open textbooks), examples of bottom-up policy adoption are rarer. There are some examples, particularly amongst community colleges where participation in OER projects has led to the formal adoption of an OER policy.
