Open Educational Resources (OER) Fellowship - June Program
The Library seeks applicants for the Open Educational Resources (OER) Fellowship – an accelerated version of our professional development program first instituted in 2015. Full-time and part-time faculty are eligible to apply with their chair’s approval. Faculty who are currently supplementing required course materials with freely available materials, library licensed digital resources, and OER are encouraged to apply.
Participants will curate a zero-cost OER to replace the existing course material in a course faculty will teach this coming Fall 2019. In order to be considered zero-cost OER, the course section you teach must assign freely available web resources and openly licensed materials; inclusion of library licensed digital resources is also recommended.
This intensive program will dedicate a significant portion of each of the three-day sessions to individual work on OER development in addition to seminar style discussions and activities. Sessions are led by Prof. Cailean Cooney, OER Librarian, and colleagues with expertise in OER and the OpenLab. Individual follow-up consultations are available to Fellows in June as well.
The program will cover:
In addition to assigning zero-cost course materials exclusively:
Upon completion of all of the above requirements, OER Fellows will receive a stipend of no less than $1,300.
Apply online (the application is also embedded below for convenience) - Submit* no later than Tuesday, April 30, 2019.
*Before submitting an application, please consult with your department chair and course coordinator about the proposed course you intend to replace with zero-cost OER.
