A new round of OhioLINK OER Course Redesign Grants, apply by April 19th

Are you interested in reducing your students’ textbook costs?
Would you like to make it easier for students to access your course materials?
Are you curious what people mean when they talk about open educational resources (OER) or open textbooks?
Do you find it difficult to change textbooks because you work with a team of instructors to teach a high enrollment course? Or you just can’t find the dedicated time to explore different course materials?
If you answered yes to any of these questions but aren’t sure how to make changes—and can’t afford the time to think about it, consider applying for OhioLINK’s Spring 2024 OER Course Redesign Grants! Deadline is April 19th!

Applying is easy! Fill out a brief form , share the course syllabus for which you want to consider the switch to OER course materials, and have your department chair send an email stating support for your application to the program.

Selected participants will receive a $650 stipend to receive a customized review of their syllabus with an OER-specialist librarian and be compensated to attend an asynchronous online workshop on teaching with open resources.
