Open Textbooks are more affordable for students and more flexible for faculty. In the three years of our Open Textbook Network membership ~100 textbooks per year have been added to the Open Textbook Library and are available for review. In these workshops, 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. Faculty who attend the workshop and complete the review are eligible for a one-time $200 stipend. Registration is required by October 16th, 2019.
