OER Fund General Information Session
October 18 at 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The UBC OER Fund was established to support affordable and inclusive access to learning materials through the use of OER in UBC credit courses. Through the use of OER, as well as open pedagogies, UBC faculty are engaged in creating and using meaningful, inclusive, and accessible learning materials. Using OER is a great strategy for course materials as online versions are free to students and instructors; it’s easy to circulate among an unlimited number of students; it can be adapted to suit student needs, teaching methods; and curriculum goals; and it’s often available in a variety of formats.
In this OER Fund General Information Session, you will receive information about how the OER Fund can support your OER project and goals. The session will also cover grant criteria and application processes, including tips on writing your proposal, developing your budget, and designing evaluation strategies. Following the information session, educational development, instructional design, and media design support staff will be on-hand to provide one-on-one consultation to applicants who are developing an OER Fund grant proposal.
Throughout the fall, CTLT will hold weekly TLEF and OER Fund Online Proposal Consultation Sessions for individual applicants.
