Open Educational Resources LogoThe high cost of commercial textbooks (print and electronic) is a major concern for both students and their parents.

The Open Education “Mini-Grants” Initiative encourages instructors to use low-cost or free alternatives to expensive course materials; these can include open-access scholarly resources, library-licensed and owned resources, and learning objects and texts that faculty create themselves.

Fifteen $1000 “mini-grants” will be available this spring. These modest yet significant sums are meant to offer an incentive for the time it will take you to identify new resources, adjust syllabi, and modify assignments and can also be used to cover any actual expenses you incur.

We invite you to engage in this transition through a competitive grant process.

If you are interested in applying for this initiative, please attend one of the Open Education Initiative information sessions to be held Feb 21st and 22nd from noon to 1 pm in Jackson Library, Room 216.  Please RSVP prior to the workshop or any questions you have to Beth Bernhardt at brbernha@uncg.edu

The deadline to apply for the “mini-grants” is March 10th.  The application is available at http://tinyurl.com/o2xck9j.

Young man enjoys science.

UNCG is working to create a supporting atmosphere that fosters positive and engaging exploration in science and engineering.

On April 22, 2017, from 12-4pm, the third annual “Science, Science, Everywhere” community science festival will be held across the UNCG campus. It will offer an opportunity for young people and their families to explore and be exposed to new and interesting scientific ideas and principles and allow direct interaction with experts in many fields.

Last year (2016), there were 60 activities — in 2017, they are aiming for over 75 hands-on science activities.
