UTA CARES Grant Program

Creation of this OER was funded by the UTA CARES Grant Program, which is sponsored by UTA Libraries. Under the auspices of UTA’s Coalition for Alternative Resources in Education for Students (CARES), the grant program supports educators interested in practicing open education through the adoption of OER and, when no suitable open resource is available, through the creation of new OER or the adoption of library-licensed or other free content.  Additionally, the program promotes innovation in teaching and learning through the exploration of open educational practices, such as collaborating with students to produce educational content of value to a wider community. Information about the grant program and funded projects is available online.

Author’s Note

I’d like to thank Dr. Jane M. Fraser who published her Introduction to Industrial Engineering online under a Creative Commons License, long before I even knew what that meant.  I’d also like to thank Michelle Reed, UTA’s Director of Open Educational Resources for teaching me about that license.  Michelle and everyone else at UTA Libraries have been so very supportive, patient, and knowledgeable.  I can’t thank any of you enough.
