Open Oregon Educational Resources seeks two instructional designers to work remotely on a contract basis to provide course design support to instructors developing openly licensed course materials. Each contract will run from September 12, 2022 through June 30, 2023. Each contract will not exceed $24,000.
More information about the project:
Open Oregon Educational Resources received one-time funding to develop openly licensed, subject-specific targeted pathway materials with an equity lens. We work with faculty in three disciplines, Human Development/Family Studies, Sociology, and Criminal Justice, to develop 13 openly licensed textbooks and about 50 course pilots that each produce openly licensed course materials.
Each instructional designer will support approximately 8 course developments per term for winter 2023 and spring 2023. We estimate 30 hours of design support total per course (including development and post-development support), at $50 per hour ($1500 per course).
