E.J. Bahng, Kate Gilbert, Ken Prusa among faculty receiving ISU Miller Open Education Minigrants to support innovative course content

August 21, 2020

Among the College of Human Sciences faculty members who received Miller Open Education Minigrants announced last week are Eunjin (E.J.) Bahng in the School of Education and Kate Gilbert and Ken Prusa in food science and human nutrition.

Along with John Hauptman in physics and astronomy, Bahng will collaborate with teachers in rural Iowa and teacher education candidates at Iowa State to produce science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) videos for K-5 students and short videos about scientists from a wide range of backgrounds.

Gilbert and Prusa, who teach the innovative, team project-based Food Product Development (FS HN 412) course, will publish an open textbook and craft interactive exercises in ThinkSpace, a courseware platform developed at Iowa State.

All the minigrant-funded projects are aimed at creating course content tailored for use in Iowa State classes. The content will serve as open educational resources, and will be freely available to instructors around the world. The OER minigrant program is sponsored by the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching, University Library, and office of the senior vice president and provost.
