The Online Learning Consortium Digital Learning Innovation Award (DLI) seeks to learn from faculty and institutions in the field who are implementing or advancing digital courseware in ways that increase student retention and success.
The award prizes ($100,000 at the institutional level and $10,000 at the faculty/faculty team level) are supported with funds from the Gates Personalized Learning Initiative and are therefore specifically focused on underrepresented, undergraduate students in higher education foundation courses. The awards are limited to US institutions.
This is an opportunity to increase student retention and success using OER (including open textbooks) and open pedagogy.
