The Pace Open Educational Resources (OER) committee and the Pace libraries are pleased to announce that funding is available for OER textbook reviews on the Online Textbook Library (OTL) of the Open Education Network. Not only does participation increase Pace's scholarship presence internationally, but it also is a review credential for your academic portfolio.
All that is needed to get set up is a short 40 min workshop sponsored by the Pace libraries to create OTL reviewer eligibility. In the workshop, faculty members explore OER texts on the OTL platform. Afterwards attendees are invited to write a review which will be posted on the OTL platform.
We only have funding for 10 faculty to participate so please reach out to Sue Maxam (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve a spot.
The Provost’s office once again offered faculty the opportunity for mini-grants to research and create Open Educational Resources (OER) to be used in a class beginning in the Spring 2021, Summer 2021 or Fall 2021 semesters. We are pleased to announce the winners of this year’s grants:
• Professors Robert Mundy, Dana Cadman and Alysa Hantgan: Dyson-PLV
• Professor Jessica Magaldi: Lubin-NYC
• Professor Yun Yuan: Seidenberg-NYC
• Noreen McGuire and Greg Murphy: Pace Library, both campuses (to compensate faculty for reviewing materials from the Open Textbook Library)
