Rollins College provides an internal grant to promote teaching with OER. The OER Grant program aims to significantly lower the cost of required materials (e.g. textbooks) to enrolled students in a specific course while maintaining or improving student learning outcomes and satisfaction with the required materials, and to contribute to the growing body of OER available to the global higher education community. Therefore, this grant is open to all faculty members, including adjuncts and artists-in-residence, teaching in any Rollins program, including the Holt School.
This program aims to:
• Significantly lower the cost of required materials (i.e. textbooks) to enrolled students in a specific course.
• Maintain and improve student learning outcomes and satisfaction with the required materials.
• Contribute to the growing body of OER available to the global higher education community.
Grants in the form of stipends of up to $3000 are available for Rollins faculty members interested in working with a team consisting of the Director of the Endeavor Center for Faculty Development, an instructional technologist, and a librarian to lower the textbook costs for students in a specific course using Open Educational Resources (OER.) The grant will be for three years, or three iterations of a specific course. Therefore, grants could last for a minimum of three semesters and a maximum of six years. The committee will fund one new OER project per academic year.
