Wednesday, 10/24/18 | Making Textbooks and Course Readers Affordable | Library 204B | 3pm-4pm
Learn about the UT System’s Textbook Affordability Initiative, which aims to reduce course content expenses and incentivize the creation of high quality, free, and open course materials. Discover ways you can leverage existing OER and content at the library to reduce or eliminate the cost of required texts for your students.
SB 810 added OER to an existing state statute promoting textbook price transparency and awareness of textbook affordability, and also authorized a grant program for OER at public institutions and a feasibility study of a statewide repository.
Consider using content the UTEP Library already owns/licenses to build you course reader or instructional text.
