In 2015, UNH initiated a university-wide faculty grant pilot project to support and evaluate the use of OER in UNH courses. Nine faculty (Open Education Ambassadors) were selected to re-envision their courses by incorporating OER with the goal of lowering the cost for students while providing a high quality learning experience. Since those initial efforts, nearly 40 Ambassador projects have been undertaken resulting in improved learning outcomes and cost savings of approximately $300,000 for UNH students.
The Ambassador program has grown to include colleagues at Granite State College, Keene State College, and Plymouth State University through the generous funding of the University System of New Hampshire's Strategic Technology Fund. The Open Education initiative at UNH is supported through a partnership among the UNH Library, Center for Excellence and Innovation in Teaching and Learning, and Academic Technology.
