Event Description:
The campus community is invited to a series of events Tuesday, Sept. 24, in ARKU 512 to learn about ways to reduce the cost of textbooks for students. Speakers from the Open Textbook Network will be visiting the University of Arkansas to provide a full day of workshops focused on open educational resources.

A Partners Workshop will be held from 3-4:30 p.m. The partners workshop is for anyone who interfaces with teaching faculty and can support or encourage the adoption of open textbooks. This includes librarians, instructional designers, educational technologists, bookstore staff and student success advocates. Attendees will gain familiarity with open resources and current OER initiatives, practice addressing commonly asked questions about OER and discus paths for integrating current workflows with OER efforts. This is an open opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about OER to attend. Please register here.  
Earlier this year through the Libraries' membership, the U of A became the first 4-year university in the state to join the Open Textbook Network. The Open Textbook Network brings together teaching faculty, academic librarians, instructional designers, campus administrators and others engaged in advocacy for open educational resources on over 600 campuses. Joining the Open Textbook Network provided the opportunity to host two of their national workshop presenters on campus.
