Project-based courses are designed to engage students in active learning through real-world meaningful outcomes. When approaching a biology graduate level course in structured population models, the first author (instructor) proposed a course project of creating an OER resource (please see draft and in progress materials at https://www.ecotheory.ca/teach/BIOL652.html). This project, which could benefit other biology graduate students and early career professionals anywhere on the globe, and which would be a permanent record of scholarship, was used as an incentive for students to more authentically engage with the material.
