Iowa State instructors can apply for up to $5,000 to help use open educational resources (OER) in their courses during the 2021-22 academic year. OER are educational materials that are free for students and free for faculty to customize, which can improve learning outcomes and make course materials more accessible for all students. Using OER saved ISU students more than $500,000 in 2020-21. Miller Open Education Mini-Grants awarded annually since 2018 provide ISU faculty funds to locate, adopt, adapt, update or create OER. A virtual Q&A for those interested in applying will be held 2-3 p.m. April 2. Applications are due by April 18.
