The OER Faculty Award was established in 2022 with the support of the President's Office and the MJC Foundation to honor the work of an exceptional faculty member, part time or full time, who has gone above and beyond in support of the Institutional efforts around Zero Textbook Cost and the use of Open Education Resources. The recipient will receive $1000, which can be used to support an educational initiative of their choosing at MJC.
The 2022 OER Faculty Award goes to Professor Rob Stevenson. This faculty member has converted many of his courses to ZTC and has greatly contributed to the creation of at least four ZTC degrees including A.A. in Art, Photography, Art History, and Studio Arts. In addition, he was instrumental in the development of the first Zero Textbook Cost Institutional Plan and has supported these efforts both directly through the Academic Senate, and behind the scenes by mentoring faculty involved with ZTC efforts on campus.
