Open Textbook Workshop
Open textbooks can alleviate the burden of educational costs for students and provide faculty with content that can be customized for their courses. Open textbooks are full, real textbooks, used by many faculty across the country, including here at UTA. They are licensed to be freely used, edited, and distributed. Many are also accompanied by customizable slides, test banks, and other supplemental materials.
What You Can Do
Attend an Open Textbook Workshop to discover open textbooks in your field. After the workshop, you’ll be asked to write a short review of an open textbook from the Open Textbook Library. Your review will benefit other faculty considering open textbooks, and you’ll receive a $200 stipend for your participation and written review. Lunch will be served at events occurring over the noon hour; coffee and snacks will be provided at afternoon events.
An RSVP is required to attend this event. Applications are due by midnight five business days before the workshop; additional registrations will be accepted after this deadline until the date of the workship, though dietary preferences may not be accommodated for late registration. Capacity is limited and open textbooks are not available for all subjects. Preference will be based on textbook subject area availability.
