Open Educational Resources Initiative (OERI)

Request for Letters of Intent:

In order to contribute to the available OER, the OERI will fund a second round of OER development by CCC faculty that would support work to be completed no later than December 15, 2020. Funded proposals will address identified gaps in currently available OER. All products completed with these funds must be licensed as CC-BY or CC-BY-NC. The focus of funded activities must be on increasing the likelihood of faculty adoption of OER by either making an OER text-equivalent available, improving upon an existing OER text-equivalent, or developing ancillary resources that facilitate OER adoption. Submission of a Letter of Intent by 5:00 pm on November 1, 2019, is required if you intend to submit a response to the Request for Proposals. The Request for Proposals will be made available no later than November 8 and submissions will be due at 5:00 pm on Monday, December 16, 2019.




The mission of the ASCCC Open Educational Resources Initiative (OERI) is to reduce the cost of educational resources for students by expanding the availability and adoption of high-quality Open Educational Resources (OER). OERI facilitates and coordinates the curation and development of OER texts, ancillaries, and support systems.

Through recommendations to the ASCCC Executive Committee, OERI supports local OER implementation efforts through the provision of professional development, technical support, and technical resources.
