The deadline of February 15th is fast approaching for Faculty to apply for OER awards of $3,000 (for adopting open educational resources) and $7,500 (for creating open educational resources). Up to 10 awards are available. Open Educational Resources (OER) promote the use of textbooks and other materials for free or at a minimal charge.
The goal of this initiative is to lower the cost of textbooks and materials for our students. You’ll have help. Both the University Libraries and the Global Campus will help you with obtaining and creating open access materials.
By collaborating to create high-quality shared texts, the academic community can dramatically lower the cost of textbooks and class materials for the students they teach. Learn more at the SPARC website or on the University of Arkansas Library’s LibGuide at http://uark.libguides.com/oer.
