Faculty within Business and Communications departments are invited to participate in the LOUIS OER Commons Faculty Cohort Project. Funds are available to support select faculty as they design openly-licensed syllabi using that curated content through a supportive peer cohort model.
This competitive program seeks to lower the cost of post-secondary education for students and contribute to their retention, progression, and graduation. Funds support faculty in replacing their existing textbook and/or course materials in a specific course(s) with no cost, open materials. Funds will be available for activity impacting single courses, departments, and multiple campuses.
LOUIS is currently working with OER Commons to develop a repository of open educational resources aligned with the Louisiana Statewide Common Course Catalog. This repository will also help facilitate the creation of new OER by Louisiana educators. It is expected to launch mid-spring 2019.
For now, you can use our Find Textbooks tool to find OER aligned to the Common Course Catalog:
