UTA CARES Grant Program: Workshops

Information on grants that support the adoption, modification, and creation of open educational resources (OER) at UTA.

Open Textbook Workshops

Please note that attendees must join the public Open Educational Resources Microsoft Team to view and use the chat function during virtual sessions. All sessions are hosted virtually via the Teams platform. 

Open Textbooks

Open textbooks can alleviate the burden of educational costs for students and provide faculty with content that can be customized for their courses. Open textbooks are full, real textbooks, used by many faculty across the country, including here at UTA. They are licensed to be freely used, edited, and distributed. Many are also accompanied by customizable slides, test banks, and other supplemental materials.

What You Can Do

Attend a virtual Open Textbook Workshop to discover open textbooks in your field. After the workshop, you’ll be asked to write a short review of an open textbook from the Open Textbook Library. Your review will benefit other faculty considering open textbooks, and you’ll receive a $200 stipend for your participation and written review.

Event Information

An RSVP is recommended to attend.
