Module 5: OER at Texas State: Office of Research and Sponsored Programs
Who they are
The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs has specialists in Pre-Award Services. They exist to provide support in finding funding, reviewing guidelines and requirements, assisting with the creation of proposals, identifying partners, and more. They also facilitate the awards themselves.
How they can help with OER
What does this mean? If adopting/adapting/creating OER is not feasible within your current resources, ORSP can help you identify funding and opportunities to help build up those resources.
ORSP offers the PIVOT funding database. Here you can search for awards to help you with the resources and time needed to develop OER or adapt a course to OER. The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs lists many other sources of funding.
ORSP also helps review guidelines, prepare budgets and documentation, collaborate with external partners, secure academic approvals, and complete submission. They're a partner from beginning to end!
