There are two major internal funding sources offered by University of Windsor's Office of Open Learning:
The grants aim to support UWindsor faculty and staff to explore and implement online, open, and technology enhanced curricular innovations. Funded projects will contribute to strategic goals of recruitment and retention of students, development of flexible learning pathways, and supporting progression to graduation. Projects may focus on one or more for-credit courses, non-credit/continuing education courses, or may provide resources more broadly to the university community and beyond to increase the impact of the funding.
The OER ACE grants aim to support UWindsor faculty and staff to adopt, create, and extend open educational resources and open pedagogies, which will contribute to the reputation of the institution, and recruitment and retention of students.
In addition to enabling significant cost savings to students, these grants will help faculty gain experience and expertise in selecting, adapting, and creating open resources that are tailored to meet UWindsor students' needs. Faculty will also gain awareness of the values and practices associated with open pedagogy and a critical appreciation of the reciprocal relationship between pedagogy and evolving OERs.
Projects may focus on one or more for-credit courses, non-credit courses, or may provide resources more broadly to the university community and beyond to increase impact of the funding.
