ATIP offers monetary incentives of $1,000-$5,000 for instructors to replace a required traditional textbook in a course with an open or alternative textbook. The goal of the program is to support student success by ensuring UH students have free and immediate access to course materials. ATIP achieves this by:
Increasing the adoption rate of open educational resources (OER) and other materials available to students at no additional cost
Supporting instructors in the adoption and use of OER and alternative texts, and
Encouraging the development of high-quality and accessible learning material
This program is not intended to support authorship and publication of new open textbooks. Those interested in publishing open textbooks can indicate their interest to firstname.lastname@example.org to be notified of future opportunities.
Individuals must be on active payroll for awards to be distributed. Awards will be distributed in two parts: the first half upon acceptance to ATIP, and the second half after implementation and upon submission of the ATIP report.
Group applications are encouraged, in order to facilitate collaboration and increase the impact of alternative textbooks across multiple course sections. Group applicants will be able to decide how the award will be distributed among individuals.
