The Weinberg Memorial Library is pleased to offer $1,000 Affordable Learning Implementation Grants to successful full-time faculty applicants.
Affordable Learning aims to reduce the financial burden on students by eliminating expensive for-cost textbooks and course materials with no-cost or low-cost educational resources. OER stands for Open Educational Resources, which includes online textbooks, media, and other materials freely available and can be remixed/reused for educational purposes. For the Affordable Learning Implementation Grants, faculty may opt to use existing OER and open-source software or may compile course materials from open access e-books and journals or appropriately licenses Library materials to replace all, or some, of their for-cost course materials.
For a list of links to available OER and appropriately licensed Affordable Learning resources, visit the Library’s OER Research Guide. Please visit the Affordable Learning Implementation Grants web page for more information and reports from previous recipients.
The library will award up to four $1,000 Affordable Learning Implementation Grants for Spring/Summer courses.
