New funding opportunity: Apply now to participate in the Ohio Open Ed Collaborative

The Ohio Open Ed Collaborative (OOEC) is looking for educators from various institutions across Ohio to update existing open content for courses on American Government, Psychology, Biology and Composition. Chosen Content Contributors will also receive $1,000 for their efforts.

OOEC is a statewide collaboration to address textbook affordability. Diverse faculty teams from Ohio State, Ohio Dominican University, North Central State College and 15 other community colleges across Ohio convened to curate and create open educational resources for 22 of our shared high-enrollment courses. As a result, faculty across Ohio are helping to facilitate adoption of free, high quality course materials that comply with Ohio’s Transfer Assurance Guidelines (TAGs). Learn more about OOEC and explore available course content.

OOEC work in 2023 will focus on updating the content for the following courses:

  • American Government
  • Introduction to Psychology with APA update
  • Bio 1 with lab manual
  • Bio 2 with lab manual
  • Composition 1
  • Composition 2

If you would like to be considered for a Content Contributor role in one of these areas, please apply by January 6, 2023.

The work in 2023 will involve updating the existing content to meet new TAGs as well as fixing broken links, adding lab manuals for Biology and updating the current events for American Government. Compensation will be provided to those who are selected, with Content Contributors receiving $1,000.

Please feel free to forward this opportunity to any faculty you know in Ohio who may be interested in participating in this project. Any questions about this project can be directed to the Affordable Learning Exchange.
