Event Date & Time
The UBC Open Educational Resources (OER) Fund was established to support affordable and inclusive access to learning materials through the adaption, adoption, development, and integration of OER in UBC credit courses. To support prospective applicants who are seeking OER funding support in 2022, CTLT will hold an online General Information Session on the OER Fund on Tuesday, October 11, from 12:00-2:00 pm on Zoom. A standard TLEF-OER Fund ‘drop-in’ proposal consultation session will immediately follow until 2:00 pm.
Through the use of OER, as well as open pedagogies, UBC faculty are engaged in creating meaningful, inclusive, and accessible learning materials as well as educational experiences that emphasize students as collaborators in the production and sharing of knowledge. In the OER Fund General Information Session, you will receive information about the OER Fund criteria and application processes, including tips on writing your proposal, developing your budget, and designing evaluation strategies. Following the information session, educational development, instructional design, and media design support staff will be on-hand to provide one-on-one consultation to applicants who are developing OER Fund grant proposals.
Beginning in September, CTLT will host weekly online drop-in sessions for applicants who are planning on submitting Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (TLEF) or Open Educational Resources (OER) Fund project proposals.
Applicants can register to ‘drop in’ to any of these online sessions to discuss their project ideas and receive feedback and advice on topics such as pedagogical approach, assessment, media development, learning technology integration, OER evaluation, open resource design, open licensure (Creative Commons), accessibility, project scope, and budget development. During these online sessions, consultants from CTLT as well as Faculty-based units, the UBC Library, and the UBC Studios will be available to applicants in on-one-one and small break-out rooms.
Applicants can use these sessions to get answers to general questions they have about the TLEF and OER Fund programs, as well as feedback to help them refine their pedagogical approaches, project scope and workplan, budget information and project evaluation strategies.
