Learn how to find and use OER materials in teaching and learning.

Award Program


Program Update: Starting with Fall 2022 applications, there are new award categories, descriptions, and compensation plans and departments will be responsible for compensation for OER work.

Deadlines: Faculty will submit their application for OER work to their department and should check with their department about deadlines for submitting the application. OER work will be approved in the fall or early spring semester, and OER work will begin during the following academic year.


  • Full-time faculty, in consultation with their supervisors, will have a choice of all or part of a 32-day plan, overload pay at their meeting rate, reassigned time, or a sabbatical project.
  • Adjunct faculty will be paid as defined in each award category.
