Open education resources funding proposals due Feb. 19

Proposals are due Feb. 19 for the next round of open education resources project funding.

Open education resources (OER) are defined as high-quality curricular materials — textbooks, lab notebooks, videos — that are free to students at Pitt and other institutions and allow legal permission for open use and adaptation. Open use means that anyone is free to retain, reuse, revise, remix and redistribute these educational materials as long as attribution is made to the original creator/author.

The funding from the Office of the Provost is for faculty to adapt, adopt and/or create OER for an existing course. This is the third year for the OER funding. Learn about the 30 previously funded projects at the Open Education Resource Grants 2019 page.
