Open Education Mini-Grant
Proposal deadline: April 15, 2020
A grant opportunity is available for all employees with teaching responsibilities at Iowa State University. The Miller Open Education Mini-Grant Program is an initiative co-sponsored by the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost (SVPP), the University Library, and the Center for Excellence in Learning & Teaching (CELT).
Inspired by the CELT Miller Faculty Fellowship Program, the Miller Open Education Mini-Grants are now in their third year of operation. The Mini-Grants provide funding to instructors who are interested in adopting, updating, or creating an open educational resource (OER) for one of their courses. OER are defined as “educational materials that are free of cost and access barriers, and which also carry legal permission for open use.”
Grants will be awarded in amounts ranging from $500 to $5,000. Proposals are now being accepted for projects to be completed in the 2020-2021 academic year. The proposal deadline is April 15, 2020. Please see the attached Request for Proposals or view the grants website for more details.
