Request for Proposals for the next round of VIVA Course Redesign Grants is officially open! Applications are due February 28, 2020, and award notification will take place on May 15, 2020.
VIVA Course Redesign Grants are designed to empower Virginia faculty with the resources and time they need to redesign courses by swapping out commercial textbooks and other expensive course materials for open, no cost, or library options.
Awards will be made from $1,000-$30,000 to assist faculty members at any VIVA institution in transitioning to course materials available at no cost to students. Full or part-time faculty may apply. Proposals may involve one person or teams that include: teaching faculty, librarians, instructional designers, subject matter experts, editors, graphic designers, or others as needed.
More information, including the full Request for Proposals and application instructions, are available at http://vivalib.org/courseredesign.
