OER Innovation Grants Support Teaching & Learning Efforts

Tuesday, May 10, 2022

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction is supporting efforts to implement high-quality, standards-aligned open educational resource materials through the WISELearn content repository. Grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to schools and districts to aid in the creation and implementation of projects or new initiatives.

Research suggests providing teachers with high-quality, standards-aligned instructional materials and curriculum-based professional learning can result in improvement in student outcomes. Open Education Resource (OER) Innovation Grants expand educator access to teaching and learning materials by allowing other educators to reuse and adapt content while giving proper credit to the project creator. These resources are free and are usually licensed through Creative Commons.

Grants are broken down into type types: ELA, Math, and Science Projects and All Subject Areas (Except ELA/mathematics/science).

The grants encourage collaboration among educators across grade levels and content areas and positively impact the teaching and learning process.

All applicants must be Wisconsin public education entities, and team members must have representation that includes teachers and curriculum, technology, and administrative leadership.
