Event Details

Concerned about high textbook costs for your students? Frustrated with the limitations of the published textbook you’ve been using to teach your course?

Explore possible alternatives by attending a workshop and writing a book review of an open textbook. Receive a $250 stipend for your efforts!

Mason faculty and instructors are invited to attend an Open Textbook Workshop on Friday, March 24, from 1:30 - 3:00 PM at Fenwick Library, Fairfax Campus, Room 1014 A & B. The University Libraries, Center for Teaching and Faculty Excellence, and Office of Digital Learning proudly sponsor this workshop.

Stipends will be distributed to faculty based on the availability of open textbooks for review and a desire for wide representation of courses (discipline and level). Stipend recipients must write and submit a short book review (form provided) within six weeks after the Open Textbook Workshop.The reviews will benefit other faculty considering adoption of affordable course content. For examples of book reviews, please see those posted on the Open Textbook Library (OTL)website (http://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks).  

When you complete the Open Textbook Workshop Registration Form, please identify an open textbook in your discipline from the Open Textbook Library (OTL) that you are interested in exploring; search the OTL list at http://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks
