Open Educational Resources and Open Textbooks: Interested in OER Efforts at UW?

Let me know you're interested!

Please send me an email to let me know you're interested in furthering the use of Open Educational Resources at the University of Washington. 

OER-related Work and the UW

UW has engaged in numerous institutional efforts related to OER:

  • UW IT Study of E-Textbooks (2013)
  • ASUW (2014) and GPSS (2015) pass resolutions supporting open textbooks
  • WashPIRG joins with the Libraries in an 2014/15 STF proposal: Driving Open Textbook Adoption (not funded)
  • UW Libraries Joins Open Textbook Network (Summer 2015)
  • UW Libraries creates the Open Educational Resources Steering Committee (Fall 2015)
  • UW Libraries hosted David Ernst and Sarah Cohen from the Open Textbook Network for a full day series of workshops on adopting OER (January 2016)
  • UW Libraries participated in the February 3rd WashPIRG release event (Seattle Times Article) for the U.S. PIRG national report on textbook affordability, called "Covering the Cost" (February 2016) 


Are you currently creating or adopting OER (including open textbooks), or interested in doing so? Please email me so I can let you know when I learn of any applicable pilot projects, opportunities for stipends and/or grant funding, and interesting collaborative efforts.
