Texas A&M Student Government OER Teaching Awards Institutional Repository Document uri icon


  • In 2015, The Texas A&M University Libraries partnered with Student Government to sponsor the establishment of an Open Educational Resources Teaching Award. The student-nominated award acknowledges faculty efforts to address educational costs through the use of open educational resources while maintaining course quality. The program is an outcome of a SECU-sponsored workshop (http://library.tamu.edu/secacademicaward2015/) that had teams of librarians and student government leaders from 13 universities in the Southeastern Conference collaborate to advance open access on their campuses. This document describes the awards, the nomination process and award criteria, and includes the original student government resolutions, providing other libraries a model for the establishment of similar awards on their campus.
