    UNC Awarded OER Grants

    UNC received two grants totaling nearly $82,000.

    The Colorado Commission on Higher Education has awarded $1 million to 26 Open Educational Resources (OER) projects, including two at the University of Northern Colorado. These projects aim to create high-quality teaching and learning materials at no cost to Colorado students.

    The OER grant program, now in its sixth year, has saved Colorado students over $31.5 million on textbook costs and transformed more than 1,600 courses to no-cost options.
    The grants support various initiatives, including zero textbook degree development, collaborative partnerships and institutional general incentive funds.

    UNC received two grants totaling nearly $82,000. Oscar Levin, Ph.D., associate professor of Mathematical Sciences, will host a workshop on collaborative OER mathematics textbooks, and Nancy A. Henke, assistant professor in the University Libraries, will support faculty in converting courses to OER.
