An Update on 2020 Textbook Affordability Grants
The Michael Schwartz Library, in conjunction with various partners, including the Center for Faculty Excellence and the Center for eLearning, offered Textbook Affordability Grants to CSU faculty during the spring and fall semesters in 2020. Faculty whose projects were selected received a $500 grant to adopt an open resource or a $1,000 grant to revise or remix an existing open textbook.
The goal of the grant is to encourage and support adoption of openly licensed course materials in order to save students money and encourage student-centered pedagogy...and it's working! Since 2016, our Textbook Affordability Grants have already saved CSU students $909,800!
Congratulations to the faculty who were awarded the 2020 Textbook Affordability Grants!
Faculty: Stay tuned for an announcement about Spring 2021 Textbook Affordability Grant opportunities. Check the Affordable Learning at CSU website for updates.
