Abstract:

The Affordability and Equity grant program, sponsored by the Jefferson Trust and offered by the University of Virginia Library, provides support to faculty who want to adopt, adapt, or create open educational resources (OER).

OER are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. Open resources have the potential to provide equitable access to knowledge, drive down student costs, and create a more inclusive learning environment.

This presentation provides to potential applicants information about the Affordability and Equity grant program.
