Open Access Teaching & Learning grants

The AIF awarded 25 Open Access Teaching & Learning grants (Category IV) for 2020 - 2021.

Open Access Teaching and Learning Grants were open to full-time and contract faculty members to encourage the development of open access learning resources during COVID-19. The focus of the call is on non-curricular initiatives to provide engagement opportunities and support to our current, incoming, and prospective students as well as to members of the public.
