Open Textbook Network Workshop


Faculty Workshop Feb. 2 10am -12pm

Faculty can attend the Open Textbook Workshop — a two-hour session where you can discover open textbooks in your field. Jasmine Roberts, Strategic Communications Instructor at the Ohio State University and open textbook author will be the guest speaker for this session.

After the workshop, you’ll be asked to write a short review of an open textbook from the Open Textbook Library. Your review will benefit other faculty considering open textbooks. You’ll receive a $200 stipend for your participation and written review.

Take 5 minutes to apply by January 22, 11:59 pm. Capacity is limited and open textbooks are not available for all subjects. Preference will be based on textbook subject area availability. Those who apply after the limit is reached will be placed on a waiting list.
