Announcing the 2024 TMU Libraries OER Grants

The Toronto Metropolitan University Libraries are pleased to announce their 2024 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 TMU  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.

This year there will be a maximum of four grants.  Two grants will be for the creation or adaptation of OER textbooks ($10,000 each), and two grants will be for the creation of openly licensed content immersive content (AR/VR, 360° video) ($5,000).

More information and a link to the application form is available on the 2024 OER grants page.
