Open Education Resources Grants 2020

The Office of the Provost recently provided Open Education Resources (OER) funding to 14 projects during the spring 2020 term.

OER funding supports faculty to adapt, adopt and/or create OER for an existing course. These projects will enhance the educational experiences of Pitt students, save students money on course materials as well as provide these faculty with the ability to customize their courses.
