Open Educational Resources Grant

West Virginia University Libraries and the Teaching and Learning Commons (TLC) are partnering to support the use of and the development of Open Educational Resources (OER) through a grant program for instructors. The grant's aim is to encourage development of alternatives to high-cost textbooks, lower the cost of college attendance for students, and support faculty who wish to implement new pedagogical models for classroom instruction. 

The deadline for the grant proposal has passed. Check back for details or email Martha Yancey at Martha.Yancey@mail.wvu.edu.

Open Textbook Review

Annually, we host an Open Textbook Review Workshop – a two hour session where you can discover open textbooks in your field. After the workshop, you will be asked to write a short review of an open textbook. Your review will benefit other faculty considering open textbooks. You’ll receive a $200 stipend for your participation and a written review.
