Roger Williams University OER Faculty Fellows
For the second year in a row, the RWU Library has been offering its OER Faculty Fellows program to its faculty. The program offers a $500 stipend to each of its 7 Fellows who commit to discarding their traditional textbook for open content. Each faculty member works closely with a librarian over the summer to identify and evaluate appropriate open content, while also simultaneously working with an instructional designer and the Center for Scholarship, Assessment, Teaching, and Technology to implement and deliver the new content in the fall semester. This cohort of the faculty are offered hands-on training and support, and it's been an extremely successful project at our university!
