To kick off the start of Open Education Week, the Open & Affordable Education Committee is excited to announce the second call for proposals for the Miller Open Education Mini-Grant Program. Co-sponsored by the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost (SVPP), the University Library, and the Open & Affordable Education Committee, the purpose of these grants is to encourage instructor innovation in assigning new, less expensive materials to students by using open educational resources (OER) in the classroom. Grant amounts will range from $500 to $5,000.
The following list is a selection of the type and variety of projects that will be considered for awards:
- Replace a traditional textbook with an existing open textbook,
- Redesign a course to incorporate OER,
- Adapt existing OER, such as an open textbook or open course modules, to fit an existing course, or
- Develop new OER to use in a course and share online.
Proposals are being accepted now for projects with a planned completion date in the 2019-20 academic year. Proposals are due by 11:59 p.m. on April 15, 2019.
