The UC Clermont Library designed the Alternative Textbook Incentive Program (ATIP) with several goals in mind:
The program will be available to 6 faculty to receive a $500 stipend with a one semester course release (or the equivalent dollar amount if ineligible for a course release). For those incentives, faculty would meet with a librarian, convert to a zero-textbook cost course, and produce a final report.
To participate in the program, individuals must be teaching at UC Clermont college full-time or have taught for UC Clermont part-time for at least 2 years. To be eligible, participants also must be willing to do the following:
During their time, participants in the ATIP program will be expected to complete the following:
It is important to note in this program that the library is willing to consider purchasing materials to support faculty conversions but cannot guarantee a purchase is possible. Therefore, participants should be prepared to work with existing OER or library collections.
