Session I : For the past three years, Brandeis Library has worked with the Center for Teaching and Learning to sponsor grants for faculty who are interested in incorporating open and affordable educational resources into their courses. Each faculty grant recipient works with a library staff member and an instructional designer or the Digital Literacy Specialist on their grant project. Laura Hibbler, Associate University Librarian for Research & Instruction, and Esther Brandon, Digital Literacy Specialist at Brandeis Library, will discuss the grant program and our continuing work to raise awareness about the high costs of textbooks and other learning materials, how these costs can negatively impact student success, and ways to alleviate costs for students.
