Introduction

This call for proposals invites interested faculty, librarians, instructional designers, and others across the MHEC region to propose projects for the creation of new career and technical education OER publications.

MHEC will select three projects centering on the development and publication of new openly licensed, fully accessible learning materials in high-need disciplines within the career and technical education area to fill gaps across existing OER content.

Awardees will receive support for their work from MHEC through the Rebus Textbook Success Program. The Rebus Textbook Success Program is designed to equip institutional teams of faculty, librarians, instructional designers, and other interested stakeholders with the tools they need to make high-quality compilations of OER that could include a book created from scratch, an adaptation, ancillary materials, or a combination of these.

Specifically, awardees will receive:
  • Support for their project from the Rebus Textbook Success Program, which includes 12 online sessions of approximately 1.5 hours each to learn the basics of OER creation and dissemination, followed by monthly check-ins with the support team as the teams finish their projects.
  • The opportunity to collaborate with teams from other colleges and universities across the country while they move from ideation to publishing.
  • Access to the Pressbooks platform for publishing (optional).

Proposals must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. CT on Friday, April 23, 2021
