Open Educational Resources: Current Year Grant Recipients

A guide for faculty to assist with finding and adopting quality Open Educational Resources that help reduce the cost of course materials for students

SPRING 2021 Mini-Grant Recipients


In November 2020, the Viking OER and Textbook Affordability Initiative invited faculty members to apply for $500 mini grants to support "zero cost" courses, where the total cost of course materials for students is $0. Instructors who had developed "zero cost" courses and are teaching those courses in Fall 2020 and/or Spring 2021 were eligible to apply for the award by December 15, 2020.
