The University Libraries OER Leads wish to draw the campus’ attention to a Colorado Open Educational Resources Grant Opportunity. The Colorado OER Council and Colorado Department of Higher Education recently released a request for proposals open until November 14th, 2018.
“This grant program was created to:
- Raise awareness of OER among faculty, staff and students in Colorado
- Provide funding to institutions, faculty and staff, and support and expand the creation, adoption, adaptation and promotion of the use of OER in Colorado
- Save students at Colorado’s public institutions of higher education in textbook costs in the coming years”
Visit the Colorado Department of Higher Education’s OER in Colorado page for full details and opportunities to attend informational sessions about the program.
Interested individuals may also find the University Libraries Open Educational Resources (OER) LibGuide to be a helpful resource for learning about and identifying existing OER and supporting resources.
