Open educational resource (OER) grant deadline

The University of Victoria Students’ Society (UVSS), more specifically the 2019 Grad Class Executive, the Division of Learning and Teaching Support and Innovation (LTSI), and UVic Libraries (Libraries) collaborated to offer a grant for the purpose of the adoption, adaptation, or development of open educational resources (OERs) for undergraduates with the aim of replacing existing textbooks or educational resources that can be prohibitively expensive. Ideally, the completed OERs will be useable not just at UVic, but other post-secondary institutions.

Learning and Teaching Grant deadlines

There will be four grants in the May 2019 call for proposals. The LTSI encourages proposals from those who directly support student learning and the student experience at UVic, including regular faculty, sessional lecturers, teaching assistants, librarians, laboratory instructors, academic program directors, instructional designers and student services professionals. The LTSI especially encourages proposals from early-career academic professionals or those new to UVic.
