Incentivizing Open: Creating a Multi-Year OER Grant Program

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

You have been allocated funds to create and manage an OER Grant Program. Better yet, administrators are committed to a 3-year pilot term. How do you go about developing a multi-year program and what factors should you consider (from the start) to ensure the sustainability of the program? We will provide participants with insight into the formation of the first year of the OER Grant Program at McMaster University. We will share our experiences in creating documentation; determining the application process; selecting criteria for the evaluation of submissions; creating support services; and developing communication and promotion strategies. We will share our lessons learned and provide recommendations to help support others who are building a similar program at their institution. We would also like to hear from others' experiences in sustaining similar programs.

Learning Outcomes:
By the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:
-identify the components of an OER grant program
-describe strategies to communicate and promote an OER grant program
-identify criteria for evaluating grant proposals in an equitable and fair manner
-develop support services for an OER grant program
-identify factors to consider to help sustain an OER grant program
