PROFESSOR PRINCE IS AWARDED GRANT TO CREATE OPEN-SOURCE COURSE MATERIALS FOR HER ENTREPRENEURSHIP LAW: OPERATIONAL ISSUES COURSE
February 2022 — Professor Samantha Prince has been awarded a grant from the Penn State Teaching and Learning with Technology Innovation and University Libraries to undertake an Affordable Course Transformation for her Entrepreneurship Law: Operational Issues course.
As part of the grant, Professor Prince will create an open-source course book that will be available not only to Dickinson Law students but to anyone who would like to use the materials. Professor Prince received a similar grant in April 2020 to create a book entitled Entrepreneurship Law: Company Creation.
ACT@PSU is a provost-funded grant program designed to expand access to higher education through affordable course materials by developing openly licensed course materials that have the potential to break down barriers of affordability and accessibility not only for students in our Penn State Community, but also for students throughout the world.
