Deadline Extended for 2022 CT OER Grant
The deadline for the Call for Applications to the Connecticut Open Educational Resources Grant Program has been extended. The new deadline for applications for this opportunity is now February 18th, 2022. The CT OER Grant program is for faculty and departments within Connecticut’s higher education institutions to explore, adopt, create, revise, and supplement Open Educational Resources (OER). This grant program focuses on OER opportunities in “high-impact” areas – courses with high enrollment, and high textbook costs. Adopting OER has the potential to increase equity in our classrooms and enhance student success at UConn. Please see the linked application above for further details about the grant program and application process.
If you have any additional questions, please contact Zach Claybaugh (Student Success Librarian/UConn Library) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
