Open Textbook Workshop
The high cost of some course materials can interfere with students’ academic success. In fact, seven out of 10 students do not purchase a required textbook during their academic careers because of cost.
The University of Delaware Library, Museums and Press invites faculty to learn more about open textbook resources that can help lessen total costs students spend on course materials during the Open Textbook Workshop
Used by many faculty across the county, open textbooks are full, real textbooks and are licensed to be freely used, edited and distributed. In addition to lessening the monetary burden on students, they provide faculty with content that can be customized for their courses. Faculty members who work on textbook selection in a wide assortment of subjects, including anthropology, biology, chemistry, economics, human resources, management, marketing, mathematical sciences, physics, political science, psychology and sociology are invited to attend.
The workshop provides faculty with an overview of open textbook publishing, and hands-on experience finding and reviewing open textbooks for use in UD courses.
While workshops are free of charge, registration is required as seating is limited.
If you have questions regarding workshops, please call 302-831-2432 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
