UNO has held two Open Textbook Network workshops for faculty. A total of 34 faculty attended, and 27 of them wrote an open textbook review as a follow-up to the workshop.
In November 2017 the UNO Library and the Center for Teaching Innovation co-sponsored, along with the New Orleans Educational Telecommunications Consortium (NOETC), a “Sip & Share” event to encourage faculty discussions around using and creating OER. Faculty from several local campuses attended and featured speakers included Teri Gallaway (LOUIS), Moustapha Diack (SUNO), and Chad Young (Nicholls).
In Spring 2018 the Library and The Center for Teaching Innovation collaborated on a program to offerCourse Affordability Transformationawards. Four faculty were awarded $750 each for their efforts to reduce the cost of materials in their courses. The transformed courses will be taught in Summer and Fall 2018, and are expected to save students approximately $11,800.
