2023 Course Redesign Sprint Report

By | August 22, 2023

Open Oregon Educational Resources has facilitated a course redesign sprint during Open Education Week since 2019. Funding supports Oregon community college and university instructors who participate in a one-week online, asynchronous OER course redesign training. The goal of the sprint is to redesign an existing course using open materials in order to save students money (preview the training in Canvas).

Since 2019, 171 unique instructors from 21 colleges and universities have completed the training and redesigned 174 courses (find their syllabi and other course materials in OER Commons). Open Oregon Educational Resources has paid out $187,088 in stipends. As a result, 18,677 students have saved an estimated $1,995,637. This represents about $10.67 in student savings per program dollar spent.

Congratulations, sprinters!
