This report presents the results of a biennial independent survey commissioned by the Digital Higher Education Consortium of Texas (DigiTex), in collaboration with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB), to examine the landscape of Open Educational Resources (OER) programs, policies, and practices at higher education institutions in Texas. Administered in March 2021 to all 169 two- and four-year non-profit institutions across Texas, including 11 independent health-related institutions, the survey sought to answer the following key questions: (1) How and to what extent institutions across Texas are using OER; (2) What OER-related policies and practices are currently in place to advance OER; and (3) What supports are needed to enable increased adoption and use of OER. The report summarizes the survey findings, and concludes with a set of high level recommendations for how colleges and universities may be supported to more effectively utilize OER to meet the needs of the state's economic mobility and education equity priorities in line with the "60x30TX Refresh," and to address the challenges and impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and future potential crises. [This report is based on an independent survey commissioned in 2021 by the Digital Higher Education Consortium of Texas (DigiTex), in collaboration with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB), and the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME).
