The future of Education is ready. Are you?

The Clemson University Libraries and Clemson Online seek proposals for the implementation of Open Educational Resources (OER) into existing Clemson courses. OER are instructional materials such as textbooks that are free to users and openly licensed to allow unlimited distribution and modification. To pilot the introduction of OER on campus and assist with course transitions, we are awarding $2,000 to one faculty member in each college.

Proposals Due: Applications closed.

Eligibility: All faculty.

Requirements: Adopt, adapt, or create Open Educational Resources (OER) to replace existing materials in a course currently offered at Clemson University. All implemented OER must be licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license or similar. 

Selection Committee: Two representatives from Clemson University Libraries (Head of Digital Scholarship and OER Librarian) and two representatives from Clemson Online (Deputy Director of Curriculum and Instruction and Manager of Learning Systems and Resources).

Evaluation Criteria:

  1. Potential savings and remaining costs for Clemson students
  2. Applicant’s preparation to successfully implement OER
  3. Feasibility of implementing OER transition by Fall 2017
  4. Creativity of proposed adoption/adaptation/creation

Application Instructions: Complete and submit the following form and email your C.V. to Kirsten Dean, Clemson Libraries. Stipdend recipients will be notified in May. Note that one stipend is available for each college, but each college is not guaranteed a stipend.
