Open Educational Resources (OER) Fellowship – Fall 2018 Program
About the OER Fellowship:
Approaching its fourth year, the fellowship funds faculty to curate an OER to replace a textbook as the ONLY required material in a course they teach. Full-time and part-time faculty are eligible to apply with their chair’s approval.
Participants will curate a zero-cost OER to replace the existing course material in a course taught this Fall 2018. In order to be considered zero-cost OER, the course section you teach must assign freely available resources that can be posted publicly on the OpenLab without violating copyright law. You can assign openly licensed learning materials, and provide links to free materials on the web. Inclusion of library licensed digital resources shared through permalinking is also recommended.
The program will cover:
Faculty accepted to the fellowship will participate in a series of 4 seminars on Fridays this coming fall (exact dates TBA), complete the OER in January, and pilot the OER as the only required course material in their spring 2019 course.
Before applying, please review your proposal with your Department Chair for approval to 1) develop an OER for the course you propose; 2) teach the the OER next spring 2019.
Faculty will be compensated at or above $1,300 for full participation in the OER Fellowship.
Be sure to review the program information before applying and consult with your department chair in advance.
