Faculty Workshop | Open Textbooks: Access, Affordability, and Academic Success

This entry was posted on Tuesday, January 19th, 2021

Are you finding that increasing numbers of your students are not buying the required texts for your courses and are struggling as a result? Learn how open educational resources (OER) can alleviate financial pressures for your students, improve their academic success, and meet your own pedagogical needs. This workshop is primarily intended for teaching faculty, but anyone interested in textbook affordability is welcome to attend.

Attendees will have an opportunity following the session to review an OER textbook in their field. Faculty who attend the workshop and subsequently submit a review will be eligible for a $50 stipend.

The workshop will be held virtually via Zoom. Registration for the event is available here: https://libcal.library.cofc.edu/calendar/exhibits/oer

The workshop will be led by CofC librarians Kayla Kipps and Gretchen Scronce. Please reach out to Kayla (kippskl@cofc.edu) or Gretchen (scronceg@cofc.edu) with any questions.
