About OPAL Fellowships

Program Overview

The OPAL Program supports three faculty teams across two years as they learn about, critically evaluate, collaboratively (re)develop, and even teach with Open Educational Resources (OER)—teaching, learning, and research materials that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license, such as a Creative Commons license, that permits free use and repurposing by others. The goal of the program is to develop faculty leaders in open and digital education.
