THECB seeks applications from Texas higher ed institutions for GEER-funded Open Educational Resources grants

THECB announced a Request for Applications (RFA) for the Open Educational Resources (OER) Course Development and Implementation Grant Program on October 27. The goal of the program is to enhance quality in online course offerings and reduce the costs of educational materials for students. Matching grants will support teams of faculty engaged in the development of new OER materials for online delivery and the redesign of courses using existing OER. This grant program is supported by a portion of the $175 million allocation to THECB from the Governor’s Emergency Educational Relief (GEER) Fund. There will be three rounds of awards for this grant competition, with a final deadline of January 11, 2021. The RFA and application form are available on the THECB website, www.highered.texas.gov/oerGEER.
