The Athena Award from Saitsa

Since 2017, Saitsa has been advocating for Open Educational Resources (OER’s).  By providing course materials for free, OERs increase student access to course materials while also decreasing the financial burden on students and their families. The Athena Award was introduced in 2019. This award serves to recognize and celebrate instructors who demonstrate exemplary use of OERs within their class/course.

2019-2020 Recipient: Jaci Lyndon

2020-2021 Recipient : Jennifer Dunn
