Open educational resources are freely accessible, openly licensed text, media, and other digital assets that are useful for teaching and learning. Open textbooks can be read online for free. By adopting open textbooks in their courses, UT instructors save students hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.
In 2017, the Student Government Association worked with the UT Libraries to launch an award recognizing instructors who use open educational resources, including free and openly licensed textbooks.
This year’s SGA Open Education Awards will be presented on April 25. Here is an open invitation from SGA and the Libraries:
The 2019 SGA Open Education Award winners will be announced at a reception on Thursday, April 25.
