There is a lot of buzz about open textbooks and the financial benefits to our students. However, many conversations and much learning needs to happen between now and realizing that goal. This online workshop will take the first steps in that direction.

  • Week 1: What is Open? What is an Open Textbook?
  • Week 2: Creative Commons Licenses
  • Week 3: Institutional Readiness
