In this workshop, you will learn what open textbooks are and how they can help alleviate the burden of textbook costs for students, while providing faculty with content that can be highly customized for your courses. Open textbooks are full, real textbooks, used by many faculty across the country, and licensed to be freely used, edited, and distributed.
Following the workshop, you will write a brief review of an open textbook from the Open Textbook Library, to be published on the OTL website: https://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks/.
Space is limited! Faculty who attend the workshop and complete the review are eligible for a one-time $100 stipend. Registration is required. The registration period ends October 8th, 2020.
