    We have developed a proposal for a pilot program, the CUNY Open Educational Resources Project, to incentivize CUNY faculty to adopt OERs instead of high-priced textbooks. The program is expected to produce OERs for 50 CUNY courses, at a savings to our students of about $4.7 million over a three-year period.

    As a first step, we would like to identify the CUNY faculty initiatives that could be incorporated into this program, or cited as examples of what CUNY is already doing. If you have experience converting textbooks into OERs, or have ideas for what classes would lend themselves to an OER project, please let us know, by responding to and providing a synopsis of your OER project here.

    If you are interested in converting your class from using a traditional textbook to using an OER please let us know too. While no commitments can be made, we are optimistic that there will be some funding available for this. Ideally, we will be able to provide funds for courses with high enrollment. Please share this with others you know who may be interested, and apologies for any duplication.

    Inquiries should be sent to Irene.gashurov@cuny.edu.

    Thanks.
