Access to course materials on or before the first day of classes ensures equity in the distribution of educational resources to all students. During the Global pandemic, disproportionately, several vulnerable populations were and remain affected by the switch and reliance on virtual content and/or digital learning environments. For students’ academic quality, affordability, and high degree completion rates are of upmost concern (Colvard et al. (2018). While research on OER/OEP has demonstrated that performance gaps have narrowed, and failure/withdrawal rates have been reduced (Winitzky-Stephens et.al., 2017), more attention is needed to ensure that culturally relevant content and pedagogy (Ladson-Billings, 1995) as well as digital inclusion and equity (Sturm et.al, 2021) are integrals parts of OER/OEP adoption. The Remixing of OER Textbooks using an Equity Lens (ROTEL) invites students to contribute to their own learning in scholarly conversations by using their own voices and experiences. Within this presentation, we highlight the impact of OER/OEP on learner retention and success, with a focus on low-income and underrepresented minority student populations. The implications of limited digital access, stable Wi-Fi connections or connectivity, broadband availability, and digital literacy skills contribute to different levels of digital distress when navigating learning on-line (Reid & Correa, 2021). Institutional survey data is examined with a focus on improving how faculty seek, curate, expand, and promote OER/OEP adoption of free, culturally relevant, digitally inclusive affordable instructional materials and pedagogies. We ask, “Will talk meet Action?”
