OER Grant Recipients
Since launching in 2019, the OER grant program has funded 27 projects to replace commercial textbooks and courseware with newly developed or adapted OER. Faculty participants come from a range of disciplines. It is estimated that the completed projects will save 4,611 students will save over $669K in textbook costs per year.
Savings are calculated based off of the SPARC method for calculating student savings, which determined that the average savings between courses that use traditional materials versus those that use OER is $116.94 per student.
