Meet the recipients of SFU's new Open Education Resources (OER) Grants

This week -- March 7 to 11, 2016 -- is Open Education Week, and events marking the occasion are taking place throughout the world.

The SFU Library, partnering with the Teaching and Learning Centre (TLC), is pleased to announce the first five projects to receive  funding through SFU’s new Open Education Resources (OER) Grants, which provide support to faculty members “wishing to redesign courses using OER as primary course materials.”

SFU's OER Grants for faculty members are part of a move toward greater integration of open educational resources. Students will benefit from reduced textbook costs and more flexible course materials.
