This Microsoft Teams session will introduce you to ZTC (Zero Textbook Cost) and how you might consider creating a ZTC pathway for students through a program or credential. Join Brenda Smith and Verena Roberts to learn why faculty engage in OER and ZTC, how other jurisdictions have adopted them, and how they help to reduce the equity gap. The facilitators will outline the process followed at TRU to start to develop two ZTC pathways: the General Studies Certificate and Associate of Science Degree. They will also outline what’s happening with individual ZTC courses at TRU and how students can find them when registering for their courses.
