Colorado Commission on Higher Education Approves $550,000 in OER Grant Funding
The Colorado Commission on Higher Education approved 20 proposals that will provide nearly $550,000 in funding for higher education Open Educational Resources (OER) projects throughout the state. “I applaud the work of the commission to bolster innovation and save our students money,” said Governor Jared Polis. “These grants will no doubt have a huge impact on the future of OER and inspire other higher education institutions in the state to follow suit with creative and impactful solutions.”
In its inaugural year, the Colorado OER Grant Program is awarding funds to several institutions in two different tiers: individual and small group; and faculty- and institutional-level grants. Funded proposals include a system wide inter-campus collaboration and faculty content design in disciplines with high enrollment and expensive textbook costs, ranging from STEM and art history to English language and writing courses.
