Textbook Transformation Grant


Valdosta State University’s Dewar College of Education and Human Services faculty and staff were among those whose grant proposal was accepted in the first round of the Textbook Transformation Grants during academic year Fall 2014 – Spring 2015, through a new University System of Georgia initiative called Affordable Learning Georgia (ALG). Drs. Scheffler, Andrews, and Sartin submitted a proposal to replace a science education textbook with open educational resources as well as redesign the course ECED 4500.
