In a 2014 survey, 65% of students reported not purchasing a textbook because of its high price. The high cost of course materials can undermine student learning.
Through a targeted investment by the Provost’s Office, Schools and Colleges, Library, and Academic Technology, UNH initiated a university-wide faculty grant pilot to support and evaluate the use of OER in UNH courses. Nine pioneering faculty were selected to re-envision their courses by incorporating OER during the 2015-2016 academic year with the goal of lowering the cost for students while providing a high quality learning experience. It was a modest start that we believe can have huge benefits for UNH students and families now and in the future. UNH faculty, academic leaders, and staff, using OER, are working together to bend the cost curve.
