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 Faculty Workshop will be held from 12:30-2:30 p.m. The purpose of the workshop is to introduce faculty to open textbooks and the benefits they can bring to student learning, faculty pedagogical practice and college affordability. Participating faculty will be invited to engage with an open textbook in their discipline and will be offered the opportunity to write a brief review, for which they will be eligible to receive a $200 stipend. Review slots are limited, and reviewers will be chosen based on the availability of open textbooks in applicable subject areas. TIPS will provide lunch for participating faculty beginning at 12:15, and the presentation will begin at 12:30. Please register here.
