Members of this committee are appointed by constituent organizations that represent faculty, staff, administrators and students at the statewide level and also includes ex-officio participants from the Chancellor’s Office, CCC Technology Center and the OEI Management Team. represent the diversity of colleges constituencies and functions within the California Community Colleges.
The OEI Steering Committee provides the valuable perspective of representative stakeholders toward the development of the OEI. By authorizing the formation of work groups, the OEI Steering Committee gathers information and develops recommendations in designated issues and topics. For example, the Steering Committee initiated a Professional Development Work Group to create the OEI Course Design Rubric that brings together the collective knowledge regarding best practices for online course delivery.
The OEI Steering Committee may also authorize the formation of joint work groups that involve both policy and operational topics. For example, the CCMS Committee was initiated with the OEI management team for the process of selecting Instructure’s Canvas and the Common Course Management System.
