Open Educational Resources

Learn about the potential impact of open educational resources (OER) on student engagement, and how to adopt, adapt and create your own for use in the educational environment

In 2023, The New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) awarded JWU $20,000 to implement course marking attributions in the course catalog to designate courses that have zero textbook cost (ZTC) to students and/or use open educational resources (OER). The course markings must be live by Fall 2024 to meet the grant requirements.

The JWU Library, in partnership with the Center for Teaching and Learning, has determined to use the grant funds to incentivize faculty to create, adapt, or adopt OER/Open textbooks. 

See the OpenEd@JWU Faculty Mini-Grant tab for more information.
