About the Fellowship

The Queens College Libraries and Center for Teaching and Learning welcome applications to the OER Faculty Fellowship, now in its second 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 spring 2020.
