In Winter 2019, the OER Task Force launched a pilot round of OER grants, with eligibility limited to CASL faculty, for courses that would launch in Fall 2019. The total allocated for these grants was $5,000, and grants were awarded in March 2019. Faculty worked to adopt library and OER materials in conjunction with the OER Task Force and Mardigian Library subject librarians.
Grants were awarded as follows:
Library Materials Grant
Global Cultures (First Year Experience) - Jorge Gonzalez del Pozo
Technical Writing for Engineers - Pamela Todoroff, 15 sections annually, ~360 students
OER Adoption Grant
Calculus I - Mark Radosevich, 11 sections annually, ~352 students
Microeconomics - Hans Czap and Antonios Koumpias, 8-12 sections annually, ~ 300 students
OER Remixing Grant
Differential Equations - Yulia Hristova and Mike Dabkowski, 8 sections annually, ~200 students
In 2019, Assistant Professor of Economics Antonios Koumpias was awarded an OER Textbook Adoption grant. See how his switch to OER helped his students in his ECON 202: Principles of Microeconomics class. Watch his FlipGrid video here!
