To apply, visit https://forms.gle/Gj8KyE4Q1UEqhvrG8.

Deadline: September 27

About

Faculty Fellows will help Queens College students succeed by reducing the financial burden of high-cost textbooks and generating high-quality alternatives that are up-to-date, accessible, innovative, and pedagogically responsible.

The Queens College Libraries and Center for Teaching and Learning will help fellows find, create, evaluate, and implement zero-cost and/or open materials for a course that will run in spring 2020.

For more information about how open educational resources help our students, visit https://qc-cuny.libguides.com/oer-ztc.

Fellowship Requirements

Both full-time and part-time faculty are eligible for the fellowship. Applicants must clear their participation with their department chair prior to applying.

Faculty fellows commit to:

  • Actively participating in 4 training workshops in Fall 2019 (October 18, November 1 and 22, and December 6, at noon)
  • Developing a fully OER or ZTC course (materials due January 12, 2020)
  • Teaching at least one section of the OER or ZTC course in Spring 2020
  • Submitting course materials to our institutional repository, CUNY Academic Works.
  • Writing a brief (200-500 word) end-of-fellowship narrative (due June 14, 2020)

Compensation

Fellows will receive $2,500 in recognition of their labor.

Smaller amounts are available to support faculty adopting courses created through the fellowship, or to recognize the labor of student or faculty partners, on a case-by-case basis.
