The University Libraries invites University of Colorado Boulder faculty to apply to participate in the 2022–2023 Course OER Creation/Adaptation Initiative. The application deadline is August 1, 2022, and should be submitted by email to:

All faculty (tenure-track and non-tenure track) and GPTIs are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to applicants who will have a paid appointment in both Fall 2022 and Spring 2023.

Project teams will create an original open educational resource (OER) or adapt an existing OER, by updating or localizing it, and create plans to integrate the OER into their own or another educator’s course. These OER will afford the educator, or other educators, new pedagogical possibilities and may result in cost savings for students.

Selected project teams will be awarded a stipend of up to $8,000, to be paid in spring 2023. In order to be eligible for the stipend, teams must complete the OER creation or adaptation by February 15, 2023, and submit a portfolio that documents and assesses the creation or adaptation experience by March 1, 2023.

International applicants and team members are encouraged to consult International Student and Scholar Services before applying, to confirm they would be able to accept the stipend. 

Learn more about the initiative and apply by August 1, 2022.
