Open Education Resources

SUNY Oneonta has received $20,000 from SUNY for the purpose of encouraging the use of Open Educational Resources on our campus. “Open Educational Resources (OER)” are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits repurposing by others.” Please refer to https://textbooks.opensuny.org/ for more information on the SUNY initiative.  Our faculty can get involved in this project and can become eligible for funding to convert courses to OER format. The application to participate is available HERE and you can get further information by contacting the Director of the Faculty Center, the Director of TLTC or the Director of Milne Library. 
• $500 one-time stipend to be paid to those faculty who either have a course that includes between 51% and 99% of the course materials as OER or agree to revise a course to include between 51% and 99% of the content as OER.

• $1000 one-time stipend to be paid to those faculty who either have a course that includes 100% of the content as OER or agree to revise a course to include 100% of the course materials as OER

. • Faculty that previously received the $500 for course OER development between 51% and 99% are eligible to apply for a $500 stipend to move to 100%. • No faculty shall receive more than $1000 for total OER stipends. All funded faculty must teach at least one course of a minimum of 3 credits. These include lectures, seminars and labs that require texts for student use

. • Awarded faculty will receive support through TLTC, The Faculty Center and Milne Library as they revise their courses

• The funding will be awarded through Milne Library after revised course content lists are submitted

• In the case of courses with multiple faculty across sections: all faculty members that commit to the OER initiative can be awarded. This would not be limited to coordinators of courses.

 

Applied Learning

Preference will be given to those applications that diversify the opportunity for students to participate through open calls and through targeted marketing to historically underserved populations. The applied learning may be for credit and noncredit experiences linked to student academic education. All selected applicants will attend a brief Faculty Center workshop on Applied Learning. Faculty will be paid a $100.00 stipend to attend this workshop. Selected applicants will provide a post implementation report evaluating the success of the experience. This report will be submitted digitally and a form will be sent to the applicant at the close of the fall and spring semester for submission.

All applications must address each of the five SUNY approved criteria for Applied Learning:

  1. Activity must be structured, intentional, and authentic
  2. Activity must require participation, orientation, and training
  3. Activity must include monitoring and continuous improvement
  4. Activity must require structured reflection and acknowledgement
  5. Activity must be assessed and evaluated

See details on the five criteria

Model 1 – Individual Award

This pathway allows individual faculty to apply for a one time stipend or personal development award (for those not eligible for stipend) of $500 to develop a new applied learning opportunity for students or to build out an existing applied learning opportunity so that it meets SUNY's 5 criteria for approved applied learning experiences. This opportunity may be connected to a particular course and the students enrolled in that course, or may be built within opportunities promoted through the program for all enrolled students of the program.

Model 2 – Individual SubGrant

This pathway allows individual faculty to apply for a one time subgrant of between $500 and $1500 to be utilized to support an applied learning experience for students. The funding may not be spent on SUNY Oneonta faculty stipends or food, but may be used to purchase materials, support professional development or (in the form of stipends) external partners. The funding will be used to develop a new applied learning opportunity for students or to build out an existing underdeveloped opportunity. This opportunity may be connected to a particular course and the students enrolled in that course or may be built within opportunities promoted through the program for all enrolled students of the program.

Model 3 – Department Award – Tiered Experience

This pathway allows for departments (or cross-department partnerships) to apply for one time funding awards of $5000 to be utilized to support applied learning for students. The funding could support retreats for development, materials, professional development and more. This pathway asks that departments examine the program experience for students and to develop a scaffolded approach across courses in the program or across years of matriculation. Departments would attend a Faculty Center led workshop as a team and develop the plan of action collaboratively. A working team of at least three people, with representatives from each participating department, must attend the workshop.
