Guide to Open Educational Resources (OER)

Professor of Affordabe Learning (PAL) Award

From the PASCAL SCALE website:

The Professor for Affordable Learning (PAL) award recognizes faculty who have already integrated affordable learning into their classrooms. These affordable course materials could include Open Educational Resources (high-quality teaching materials that are free for people everywhere to use and re-purpose), items freely available on the internet, or library resources. If you’ve helped your students by adopting zero-cost course materials, we’d like to recognize and thank you! We invite you to apply for the Professor for Affordable Learning Award.

Applications are now open! Apply, here.

This award is sponsored by the Partnership for Academic Libraries of South Carolina (PASCAL). For more information, please contact Amy Trepal at  To apply, please fill out the application in the box on the left.
