Open Education Resources (OER) Incentive Program: Grants 

Open educational resources (OER) are classroom materials without copyright restrictions, are available in the public domain, licensed through the Creative Commons (or similar intellectual property licenses) or library-licensed, and accessible to student at little or no cost. With the rising prices of textbooks and the resulting financial burden for students, OER can help mitigate such expenses for students and provide instructors with pedagogical advantages. To encourage faculty to integrate OER materials in their courses, the OER Faculty Incentive Program will award grants of $1000 to instructors selected by the campus OER Committee. Faculty who are awarded OER incentive grants will integrate OER into the upcoming academic year’s course(s). Ineligible are previous awardees who wish to use OER for courses that already were supported with an OER grant. Priority will be given to first-time applicants.

Faculty who are teaching in the 2020-2021 academic year (fall and spring semesters) are invited to apply for the 2nd annual Open Educational Resources (OER) Incentive Grant Program to support College of Charleston faculty in creating high-quality instructional resources at little or no expense to our students.

GO TO: OER program website and the online application form.

Many thanks to Dr. Jason Coy, Professor of History and Faculty Administrative Fellow in the Office of the Provost, who facilitated the initiation of this program and currently chairs the OER Committee. Please direct all program-related questions to Dr. Coy at coyj@cofc.edu.
