Textbook Transformation Grants
The State of Georgia’s FY 2015 and FY 2016 budgets include funding to support a new USG initiative, Affordable Learning Georgia (ALG), which focuses on reducing the costs of textbooks and the enhancement of GALILEO, Georgia’s Virtual Library and ALG’s parent initiative. A key strategy is to provide grant-supported opportunities for USG faculty, libraries, and institutions to transform their use of textbooks and other learning materials into lower cost options. The Affordable Learning Georgia Textbook Transformation Grants are intended to:
- Pilot different approaches in USG courses for textbook transformation including adoption, adaptation, and creation of Open Educational Resources (OER) and/or identification and adoption of materials already available in GALILEO and USG libraries.
- Provide support to faculty, libraries, and their institutions to implement these approaches.
- Lower the cost of college for students and contribute to their retention, progression, and graduation.
