University of Wyoming Libraries recently awarded open textbook grants to five faculty members to implement open educational resources in their classes.
The open textbooks resulting from the grants are projected to save UW students more than $50,000 each semester.
“The innovation and creativity of UW instructors in this round of grants were amazing,” says Cass Kvenild, interim associate dean of UW Libraries. “Faculty from three colleges will create new open textbooks and course materials to better meet student needs while saving thousands of dollars in the process.”
Grants are awarded to instructors who adopt, adapt or create new open textbooks or other materials for their courses. Grant awards range from $1,500 to $3,000.
