Finding OERs

Creating OERs

To promote the adoption of OERs at the University of Florida, Affordable UF is now accepting applications for the Affordable Access for Student Success Faculty Learning Community. This year-long program will develop a small cohort of instructors committed to the development of free, open course materials through intensive training and mentorship. Over the course of the program, participants will develop an initial prototype for an OER, as well as a long-term project plan. This learning community will be held in Spring/Fall 2021. The application deadline is September 25th, 2020.

If you have other ideas for OERs, contact Micah Jenkins with your proposed project.
