About this Event

Join members of the Open and Affordable Teaching Materials Initiative for an informal learning session about Open and Affordable Teaching Materials grants. These one-time incentive grants, offered by the UD Library, Museums and Press, provide support for faculty who want to increase the affordability of their course materials.

During this information session, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about the grant program and get useful tips on how to submit a successful proposal.

Current faculty participants in the grant program will also be on hand to share information and insights about their own affordability projects, including:

  • Professor Aurelia Rio from the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, who will discuss transitioning SPAN 315 to low-cost options, including open-source materials and Library-licensed resources, to make the course more accessible to a broader array of students.
  • Professor Kate Riera from the Department of Human Development and Family Sciences, who designed the newly proposed HDFS 367/467 course with open and affordable teaching materials to support underrepresented students in accessing higher education opportunities.


This virtual event is open to those who teach at UD.

Registration is required. Once registered, you will receive an email with details on how to join the event via Zoom. The event will not be recorded.
