Good morning, Texas OER Community,

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s (THECB) Division of Digital Learning is pleased to announce a new OER opportunity for institutional participation.

Announcing the inaugural cohort of the Texas OER Fellowship, the Founding Fellows! We invite applications from eligible individuals to serve as Founding Fellows of the Texas OER Fellowship Program. The Texas OER Fellowship Program aims to support mentor relationships for OER use, creation, and capacity building at institutions and statewide. The Texas OER Fellowship Program will kick off in the summer of 2024 with an inaugural cohort of OER leaders.


The Founding Fellows cohort will be selected based on their considerable demonstrated experience and leadership in open education and OER in Texas. The Founding Fellows' role will be to collaborate in design and evaluation of a program curriculum and essential resources to guide leadership development of future Texas OER Fellows. They will also receive training from invited experts to develop advocacy and mentorship skills. THECB anticipates inviting 10 Fellows to participate in the Founding Fellows cohort.


For a full program description of the Texas OER Fellowship Program including application criteria, institutional commitment, and the application form please visit the OER Fellowship Program. Applications and supporting documentation will be accepted until May 31, 2024 


Please direct questions to me, at
