Both full-time and part-time faculty are eligible for the OER Faculty Fellowship. Applicants are expected to clear their participation with their department chair prior to applying. If you are interested in converting a course with multiple sections from a pricey textbook to a free, open alternative, please contact Leila Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to applying, as an alternative arrangement involving multiple instructors and course leads may be more appropriate than an individual fellowship.
Faculty fellows commit to:
Apply by August 1. Early applications will be prioritized.
Fellows will receive $2,000 in recognition of their labor.
Smaller amounts are available to support faculty adopting courses created through the fellowship, or to recognize the labor of student or faculty partners, on a case-by-case basis.
The Queens College Libraries and Center for Teaching and Learning welcome applications to the OER Faculty Fellowship, now in its third year.
Faculty Fellows will help Queens College students succeed by reducing the financial burden of high-cost textbooks and generating high-quality alternatives that are up-to-date, accessible, innovative, and pedagogically responsible.
The Queens College Libraries and Center for Teaching and Learning will help fellows find, create, evaluate, and implement zero-cost and/or open materials for a course that will run in Fall 2021 or Spring 2022.
