Presenters will share results from a survey of 2014-16 applicants to Affordable Learning Georgia's (ALG) Textbook Transformation Grants, an OER and affordable materials adoption, adaptation, and creation-focused grant program. The survey asked respondents to identify and rank factors motivating their interest in adopting OER, from specific aspects of the ALG grant to a desire for improved student learning. Open-ended questions provided new information about the unanticipated challenges, benefits, and changes to teaching practices related to OER. ALG's strategic planning changes based on these survey results will also be discussed.

I'm interested in embodied cognition, experiential learning, and coaching for faculty and educational developers. Happy to chat with anyone about ideas from my book, Minding Bodies: how physical space, sensation, and movement affect learning (WVU Press, 2021).
