The Open Textbook Network: Helping Advance Open Textbooks on Your Campus

Wednesday, February 03 | 11:00AM–11:45AM | Texas Ballroom Foyer, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
The Open Textbook Network (OTN) can help your institution start or advance your campus open textbook initiative. Together, we can help faculty understand and adopt open textbooks in their classes, increase capacity of institutions to support open textbooks on campus, and collect data to show the impact of open textbooks for students. Learn about our strategies and efforts to date and how your institution can benefit from joining the dozens of institutions that are already working with the OTN, from major research institutions to community colleges (and be an important part of this national movement).

OUTCOMES: Learn about open textbooks * Understand the need for open textbooks and how to address faculty questions and concerns about them * Learn how to participate in the OTN
