Diverse faculty projects receive affordable course content grants for 2018-19

May 14, 2018

Five faculty projects have been selected for VCU’s second year of Affordable Course Content Awards. This funding stream allows recipients to adopt, adapt, and author open educational resources to replace more costly texts in their classes and tailor resources to course goals, both lowering student textbook costs and increasing student success.

The Affordable Course Content Awards program is a partnership of the Office of the Provost, VCU Libraries, the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence, and the ALT Lab and Online @ VCU. Academic Technologies, Student Accessibility and Educational Opportunity, and Barnes and Noble @ VCU have also committed to serve as resources for award recipients.

Award recipients:

The faculty recipients will be working on their projects throughout the 2018-19 academic year, with implementation required by fall 2019.
