2021 Faculty OER Grant Application
TRAILS and the Montana University System (MUS) is opening the fourth round of grants to support MUS faculty in using Open Educational Resources (OER). Open Educational Resources (OER) are openly licensed textbooks and course materials that are available online and that come at little or no cost to students. This OER grant opportunity is part of the TRAILS MUS OER Initiative that promotes use of open resources across the system and the state. The initiative is aimed at increasing affordability and improving student success by promoting the use of high-quality, free or low-cost course materials and textbooks.
For this round of grants, the MUS TRAILS OER Initiative seeks to support proposals from MUS faculty (tenure and non-tenure track, instructors, and adjunct faculty) to adopt or revise existing OER materials. Proposals for adoption of OER in high-enrollment and/or frequently taught courses will be prioritized.
Funding for OER grants is provided by the Office of the Commissioner of Higher Education for the Montana University System.
