Apply for the OER Grant for Fall 22!
Open Educational Resources (OER) are free and openly licensed educational materials.
Faculty can be paid for their work related to converting their course(s) from a cost-based textbook to no-cost OER-based materials. These stipends are paid from COVID relief funds that the district has specifically earmarked for OER support. Awardees will be paid via PEX timesheet upon achievement of various milestones, so it is essential to keep track of the hours you spend on the project. The amount for full completion of Individual Participant projects is up to $5,000, pending completion of Milestone #3. Faculty Lead Mentors are paid hourly, not to exceed 100 hours.
These program and compensation details may change.
Full Time and Part Time faculty are encouraged to apply. Reapplicants from Spring ‘22 may apply, though new applicants will be prioritized.
There are two applications:
You will work on adopting, revising, and/or remixing an OER. Please read more below for the project milestones and what you’ll be asked to work on and submit. You will be expected to keep track of your hours and how you spend them. Hours to get to milestone goals may vary; thus, the payment amount may vary.
Faculty Lead Mentor
You will support and mentor faculty participants in this process. You will participate in training in the beginning and reflection opportunities at the end.
