OER Fellows Grant inaugural recipients selected

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

During Open Education Week earlier this year, the Library announced a new initiative, an OER Fellows Grant program to support the creation of open education resources at Waterloo. As part of the Library’s mission to make learning materials freely accessible and available, we sponsored $15,000 for this pilot program (up to $5,000 per grant) to create or adapt resources for use in a Waterloo course. 

OER Fellows Grant inaugural recipients selected We’re pleased to announce that three dynamic projects have been selected for support: 

  • Welcome to Canadian Politics: Collaborative Editing for a Student-Generated OER (submitted by Alana Cattapan, assistant professor, Department of Political Science) will expand and move the conversation on Canadian politics beyond the topics typically addressed in Canadian politics classrooms. 
  • Anything but a tariff: Visualizing alternative policies for the small open economy (submitted by Barb Bloemhof, lecturer, Department of Economics) will provide students with an interactive visual tool to more fully understand how countries gain (or not) from trade.
  • Life Stories of Older Adults: Digital Storybook for Gerontology Students (submitted by Elena Neiterman, continuing lecturer, School of Public Health Sciences) will provide a unique learning experience to students by engaging them in the collection of stories from a diverse range of older Canadians as well as the development of the digital storybook. 

Stay tuned for updates on these projects next March during Open Education Week (March 6 – 10, 2023).
