UTA Libraries award OER grants to faculty

Four faculty members will receive grants from the UTA Libraries to support the adoption and creation of open educational resources (OER) that make college more affordable for students.

The funds, totaling nearly $31,000, come from UTA CARES, or UTA Coalition for Alternative Resources in Education for Students. OER include textbooks, videos, quizzes, and worksheets, as well as learning modules, lesson plans, syllabi, data, and more.
