Open education is guided by the idea that education, above all else, is about sharing. The most effective teachers share knowledge, experience, and feedback with their students, as well as their peers. UTA Libraries believe that open education reduces barriers, empowers learners, and connects the academy to the world that it serves. We provide support for faculty interested in exploring open education through the practice of open pedagogy and/or through the adoption or creation of open educational resources (OER). The Libraries sponsor a grant program that supports open pedagogy and OER adoption/creation projects.
