Embracing Equity through Open Educational Resources (OER) at MTSU
MTSU’s OER grant-funded initiative, Embracing Equity through Open Educational Resources (OER), awarded by the Tennessee Board of Regents in December 2020, builds on institutional knowledge, experience, and partnerships to make MTSU a more equitable and inclusive campus. Through faculty mini-grants, this interdisciplinary project encourages instructional innovation and enhances the scholarship of teaching and learning by providing instructors with resources to redesign their course around the use of OER. Learn more about the grant and its goals in our February 2021 press release.
