ALX Proposal Form - $0 Course Transformation Grant
ALX awards grants for almost any course at The Ohio State University–from small seminars to large, multi-section general education courses. The award amount for a $0 Course Transformation Grant is $1,000.
The short answer is, it depends. Some faculty choose to author course materials from scratch or adopt existing open educational resources. Others rely on library resources like books on reserve and subscriptions, and many utilize CarmenCanvas for delivery.
Most employ a combination of these tactics. ALX works with instructors to develop the appropriate approach based on the instructor’s needs and objectives for the course.
This application initiates the conversation to understand the instructor’s needs in terms of support. Use this form to carefully consider impact to students, both in terms of money saved and classroom experience. This form will also ask you to share your planned deliverables and project timeline. Successful applicants will be offered guidance from ALX partners to put your project in motion.
