ALG: Faculty Information

  • Adoption
  • Grant Seeking

Adoption

Thanks for considering reduced cost alternatives for our students! This page is a quick starting point – for deeper knowledge, please see the two following resources.

The MGA library page has a comprehensive subject guide of ALG and OER resources which is the perfect place to start. . ALG also has a wonderfully useful website.

Additionally, there is a series of ongoing training and development events hosted by ALG for faculty. These webinars are archived to allow for asynchronous enjoyment.

Short videos of faculty and students using reduced-cost materials coming soon!

Your campus facilitators for ALG are Pat Borck (library) and Michael Gibbons (faculty). Do not hesitate to contact either of us if you have any questions!

Grants

The ALG offers grants for textbook transformation. There have been four rounds so far (as of October 2015), and one more still scheduled. The call for proposals for the 5th and final round is here, and the DUE DATE is December 15, 2015. The future of the Textbook Transformation Grants will be contingent on funding, so be proactive! Two levels of funding are available: single course grants are $10,800 and larger grants for impacting multiple classes are up to $30,000. Grant proposals must involve teams of at least two members.

Many Activities may be covered under these grants.

  • Using existing no-cost-to-students materials
  • Adopting an OpenStax textbook
  • Developing material for the top 50 Lower Division courses
