The WSU Library is committed to educational innovation and student-centered best practices. In Fall 2016, we launched the WSU Library Open Educational Resources Initiative (OERI) to foster instructional effectiveness while lowering costs for students. From the Spring 2017 to the Spring 2018 semester, we awarded twenty six $1,000 mini-grants to faculty who redesigned their courses using open educational resources. To date, we have saved students over $55,000! The Initiative continues with our fourth call for applications for mini-grants for courses scheduled to run during the Fall 2018 semester.
The WSU Library Open Educational Resources Initiative has been made possible through the generous support of Reach Out for Schools, the WSU Provost's Office, the WSU Graduate School, and the WSU Library.
