We report on the outcomes from an RCN Incubator network on promoting the OER life cycle for data-centric teaching resources. To support the development and open access publishing of teaching resources with ecological data, we organized a Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN) to prepare dataset teaching modules for publication in Teaching Issues and Experiments in Ecology (TIEE) in collaboration with the Education Division of ESA and the Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis (QUBES) project. Participants brought a diversity of teaching experience and backgrounds, coming from 19 different institutions from across the United States and Canada, including Ph.D granting institutions, liberal arts colleges, primarily undergraduate public institutions, community colleges, and museums. The FMN structure allowed us to build a faculty community of practice that generated innovative educational scholarship. We continue the work of our network by applying the OER framework to these resources with a second FMN to adapt, implement, and republish these modules. Through our partnership with QUBES, we aim to further engage faculty in teaching scholarship by promoting community benefits and academic credit for this work.
