BCcampus is offering a free, online four-week workshop for those interested in adopting open textbooks or just interested in learning more about them. The workshop sessions will run from January 12 – February 6, 2015. Each week will have a new topic including:
- What is open? What is an open textbook?
- Creative Commons Licenses
- Institutional Readiness
- Find, Evaluate and Modify Open Textbooks
Additional information and the registration form can be found here.
In addition, the BCcampus Open Textbook project will now offer $250 to faculty or graduate students who teach at post-secondary institutions in Saskatchewan and Alberta for reviewing open textbooks in their collection. For more information about this initiative, please see the Call for Reviewers.
If you are at the U of S and have any questions about either of these opportunities, please contact the GMCTE.
