OER RESEARCH FELLOW APPLICATION: DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 16, 2016
We (the Open Education Group - http://openedgroup.org) are in the process of identifying early career researchers and/or qualified Masters/PhD candidates in the United States and Canada for a fellowship to research Open Educational Resources (OER). Successful candidates will publish papers relating to the educational outcomes that take place when OER are substituted for traditional learning materials. OER Research Fellows will receive funding to attend two conferences, one of which will be the Open Education Conference in Richmond, Virginia, in November 2016. In addition, Fellows will receive mentoring in OER research and guidance in identifying, researching, and writing specific OER projects. Small stipends will be made available to OER Research Fellows who successfully complete the program, the overall funding support for Fellows will be approximately $5,000 (including conference costs and stipend).
