EXTENDED: OER Course Redesign Training – Funding Deadline for Apr 10-May 5 session

By | December 19, 2016

Funding is available for Oregon community college instructors to participate in a four-week online, asynchronous OER course redesign training in winter or spring 2017. This funding is not applicable to courses being redesigned with an OER Adoption Grant (apply for just one funding source per course).

OER course redesign defined: The goal of the training is to redesign an existing course using open materials in order to save students money. We will also explore open educational practices that encourage students to create or contribute to open content with a real-world purpose.

Funding details: $500 per person: $250 upon completion of training, and $250 upon completion of course redesign.

Timeline: Four training sessions will be offered during winter/spring 2017:

  • Winter 1: Jan 16-Feb 10
  • Winter 2: Feb 13-Mar 10
  • Spring 1: Apr 10-May 5
  • Spring 2: May 8-Jun 2

Completed registration forms for the third training session are due by Monday, April 3, 2017. Trainings will be filled on a rolling basis up until one week before the beginning of each session.

    I am interested in getting training to redesign my introduction to environmental science course to use OER materials. Spring term is quite an overload for me, so the April to May option would probably work best. Do you know what a reasonable estimated time commitment for this training would be on a weekly basis?

      Hi Kevin, I’m sorry I missed your comment for a few days! The amount of time it will take you to redesign a course using open educational resources depends on many variables, but as a rough estimate please set aside 10-12 hours to work on your course during the training. I hope you’ll register! Amy
