Open Educational Resources Project
In June of 2017, I was awarded a grant to develop Open Education resources for sociology students. The objective of the project is to create crucial material to facilitate the adoption of the Griffiths et al. Introduction to Sociology textbook. These materials will improve the adoption rate of the OER textbook at UTA and in the larger academic community, thereby reducing student expenses and improving student performance by giving students a free and open multimedia platform which can be accessed from any SmartPhone, tablet or laptop. To date, this effort has saved students nearly $50,000 in textbook and course related costs.
