The Toronto Metropolitan University Library is pleased to announce its 2022 Open Educational Resources (OER) Grants to encourage the creation and adoption of open educational resources. OER are learning materials that are openly licensed such that they are freely available to be adapted, copied, and shared. OER can be: courses, modules, textbooks, multimedia, assessments, and supplementary materials.
These grants advance the University’s priorities to foster an innovation ecosystem and ensure excellence in student learning experiences, and build on Ryerson Library’s digital initiatives, expertise in Open Access and Open Education Resource publishing and dissemination, and academic priorities of access and openness. The Library is very pleased to collaborate with the Office of eLearning and the Learning and Teaching Office in the review and adjudication of the grants, and in the support of successful projects.
Applications for the 2022 round of Library OER grants are now being accepted. See the 2022 Library OER Grant page for more details. This time we will have grants for both textbook creation and for the development of open immersive video content. Successful applications will be announced in April with funding being made available in early May.
Applications for the 2022 University Library and Ted Rogers School of Management OER Partnership grants are also being accepted until May 13, 2022.
