Sustainability Challenges for Open Resources to promote an Equitable Undergraduate Biology Education (SCORE-UBE)
SCORE Collaborative Pilot Program
With support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation Education Program, the SCORE Network offered the Collaborative Pilot Projects (mini-grants) program to provide funding to 4 nascent collaborations. The program supported projects whose outcomes would benefit the wider SCORE Network and foster the development of sustainable solutions to issues pertinent to the Network, including, but not limited to: 1) balancing a commitment to freely available education resources and professional development with the demands to stay relevant, 2) closing the OER lifecycle, 3) bridging disciplinary conversations with institutional conversations, and 4) ensuring financial sustainability.
We celebrated the successful completion of these projects and shared lessons learned during a virtual meeting on February 2, 2020. The meeting was recorded and publicly available through the link below.
We learned a lot by working together on sustainability and equity issues in OER. Click on the links below for a summary of each project, links to products, and lessons learned.
