Tisch Library Open Educational Resources (OER) Awards

Tisch Library provides financial support for faculty and instructors in the Schools of Arts, Sciences, & Engineering who are interested in adopting or creating low-cost, free, or open course materials for their classes through our OER Awards program.

The program encourages cost savings for students and aims to contribute reusable learning objects created at Tufts to the larger scholarly community. By facilitating the use and creation of open material, it aims to create more equitable access to learning and enable the inclusion of diverse perspectives and experiences that may be absent from existing textbooks or literature. The program also helps address some of the challenges of accessing and affording textbooks and other course materials during ongoing hybrid and remote learning.

Applications for Spring 2022 are now open!
