Are you interested in dipping your toes in the Open Educational Resources water? Curious to know what’s out there in your discipline and want to be compensated for reviewing OER material? Or maybe you recently decided to use OER in an upcoming course.
The Connecticut Open Educational Resources Coordinating Council announced the second round of its statewide grant program for faculty and departments within Connecticut’s higher education institutions to explore, adopt, create, revise, and supplement Open Educational Resources (OER). The following categories of grants are available:
Review Grant – Evaluate an openly-licensed textbook or other open content and write a review for public display ($250-$500).
Adoption Grant – Adopt an existing open textbook or open course content with little to no changes made to the content ($1,000).
Supplemental Grant – Develop ancillary material (quizzes, slides, exercises) for currently adopted OER ($1,000).
Impact Grant – Create OER and for collaborative, large scale proposals.
Proposals are due Monday, February 15, 2021. If you are interested, please contact Ariela McCaffrey or Tertia Trowbridge who will work with you on your proposal. Full descriptions and requirements are available here.
