The Michael Schwartz Library, in collaboration with the Center for eLearning, Center for Instructional Technology and Distance Learning (CITDL), and the Center for Faculty Excellence are sponsoring another Textbook Affordability Small Grant to help support faculty who are willing to adopt/adapt an open textbook for a class. Grant Applications are due April 23, 2018.
Open Textbooks Workshop
If you want to learn more about Open Textbooks and possibly apply for one of the grants, attend Dr. Glenda Thornton's presentation on Open Access Textbooks on Thursday, April 12 at 1:00 pm in RT 502.
Open textbooks are full, real textbooks licensed to be freely used, edited, and distributed. Increasingly, faculty members all across the country are adopting open textbooks as one way to address this crisis. In this workshop you can learn about open access textbooks and discover what is available in your field.
Attendance will be helpful in applying for a grant, but it is not required.
