Emory Open Education Initiative: mini-grants 2015-16

Mini-Grants from Emory Open Education Initiative

Emory Libraries and Information Technologies (LITS) is offering mini-grants in the amount of $1,000 each. These grants are intended to encourage faculty and instructors to create and use open educational resources and library materials to support student learning in their courses. The grants may be used to create or compile open educational resources, library materials, or faculty-generated content to be used in courses taught fall 2015 or spring 2016 in lieu of textbooks.

The grants are open to all full-time faculty, both lecture- and tenure-track. Both individual faculty members and faculty working as teams may apply, but only one application per faculty member/team will be considered. A maximum of 10 mini-grants will be awarded for fall 2015 or spring 2016 classes.

Accepted faculty members will be required to attend three half-day immersion trainings, scheduled for February 6, February 13, and February 20, 2015, from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m.  Applications are due on November 14, 2014 (5pm, EST) and may be accessed via this link. Applicants will be notified of the decision by Friday, December 12, 2014.
