To reduce textbook and course material costs primarily through the adoption, adaptation, and creation of free Open Educational Resources (OER), Harper has allocated $75,000 of strategic plan funding for OER Transformation Grants. These grants are intended to support faculty efforts to reduce the costs associated with textbooks and course materials while maintaining high quality course design and instruction. If you are interested in replacing costly textbooks and course materials for your course(s), this grant opportunity is for you.
Dr. Proctor would like to hear from you. You are invited to share your ideas, thoughts, and concerns about the work you do at Harper and how we can help our students succeed. The first session is today, August 28 at 3 p.m. in D193, and sessions will continue through the fall semester and will be held on the main campus as well as at LCC and HPC.
