Opportunity for Biology Faculty

Posted on: June 29, 2020

JMU biology faculty (or those with expertise in biology) are invited to review open educational resources (OER) and receive a $250 honorarium.

Apply by July 15, 2020 to join a “sprint” hosted by VIVA, Virginia‚Äôs academic library consortium, in which multiple faculty will review OERs that may be appropriate for Transfer Virginia courses. This sprint will be hosted on Zoom from 10am to 3pm on a date that will be determined by preferences given in the application form. Faculty will receive a $250 honorarium for participating in this sprint.

If you have questions about this sprint, please contact viva@gmu.edu. 

VIVA will host more OER sprints, which will bring together disciplinary experts to review OERs that align with Transfer Virginia courses. Contact Liz Thompson (thomp3ea@jmu.edu) if you’d like to be notified of upcoming sprints or if you have any questions about OER for your courses.
