Instructional designer Michele Knight of ELITE and Associate Professor Dr. Carrie Fitzgerald have won a DOER Fellowship grant from the Open Education Group. The grant allots $500 to an Instructional Designer and $250 to a faculty member, contingent on publishing three OER assignments.

According to the Open Education Group, "The DOER Fellows Program invites instructional designers to partner with subject matter experts to apply for small grants, supporting the creation of renewable assignments based on the principles of OER-Enabled Pedagogy and designed to be used with specific open educational resources."

The goal of this grant is to "increase instructional designer's capacities to design effective and engaging learning experiences with OER."

Knight and Fitzgerald developed three unique assignments to be used in Introductory Astronomy (ASTR101), a General Education laboratory course. These assignments include creation of an ePortfolio documenting astronomy studies, a student designed collaborative learning assignment, and a peer professor assignment.

To receive grant funding, they will publish these assignments for the OER community throughout the world via the website.

They plan to use the grant funds for software technologies that will make the OERs easily accessible, and interactive for the global OER Community.
