How will you calculate FTE load for adjunct faculty?
The CRC OER Award program is currently only open to CRC faculty. Full-time faculty (1.0) are eligible to earn $5000 for work done to convert traditional (commercial) textbooks to open educational resources. The goal is to offer a full Zero Textbook Costs schedule for the fall 2022 semester.
Adjunct faculty will be eligible to earn the award on a sliding scale depending on the FTE load that is currently held at CRC. For example, if you're teaching a 3-unit class (.2) at CRC and a 3-unit class (.2) at ARC, you will only be eligible to claim the .2 at CRC.
Details on the amounts that can be earned are still being negotiated, but will be announced here and on the OER Award Program website when finalized.
