We're happy to announce paid opportunities for faculty to work on curriculum development related to OER and equitable and inclusive pedagogy. We are seeking project proposals for next year: 2023-24.
The application for next year’s Open Education and Equitable and Inclusive Pedagogy projects are now open and will close on May 17.
SPSCC’s strategic plan aims to close equity gaps, enhance student achievement, and offer enriching learning experiences.
Reducing textbook costs for students and redesigning a course to incorporate the best practices for equity and inclusion are concrete ways to achieve the strategic plan goals.
While part of this work is incorporated into regular faculty roles and development, sometimes the scope is beyond the faculty duties listed in the contract. We recognize this and want to provide compensation for faculty creating sustainable Open Education Resources (OER) or redesigning their courses for inclusive and equitable pedagogy.
We would also like to encourage faculty to plan and work collaboratively when appropriate.
Replace purchased learning materials with zero-cost, high quality, open education resources.
Redesign your course for equity, representation, and inclusion
See how deans and Dr. Andreas will evaluate your applications.
Faculty members can propose appropriate deliverables during the application process. These may include (but are not limited to):
Completed projects, or aspects of them, will be shared with all faculty. In hopes of supporting ongoing course development opportunities, we will also encourage participation in a future all-faculty event about lessons learned, outcomes, strategies, and advice.
