Funding is available for Oregon community college and university faculty to participate in a one-week online, asynchronous OER course redesign training.
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: $750 per person: $250 upon completion of training, and $500 upon completion of course redesign.
Timeline: We will run this training as a SPRINT during Open Ed Week, March 1-5, 2021. Plan to commit 12-15 hours to complete your course redesign (your mileage may vary).
Note on timing: If you plan to teach your redesigned course in Spring 2021, please contact your bookstore manager to find out about adoption deadlines – they may have already made a nonrefundable purchase for your course!
