Affordable Textbook Alternatives Workshop
2:00 - 3:00
We are all concerned about the rising cost of higher education but often may not know what we can do as individuals. Faculty want to assign the best quality textbooks possible for their students but they know that some of these materials are very costly. In this workshop, faculty will learn how to find and use openly licensed quality educational resources that are free to students. In many cases these resources can be adapted to the individual instructor's class and, because they are freely available, students will have the needed resources the very first day of class. What a great way to help students improve classroom performance! The event is free.
