Using Open Textbooks in Your Teaching

The University of Regina’s Open Textbook Publishing Program in collaboration with Archer Library is pleased to announce the first of three workshops on open educational resources – how to find and evaluate the quality of resources, how to use them in your teaching, and what the experience has been for instructors and students currently using open resources for teaching and learning.

When: Thursday, October 17, 2019 from 2:30 to 3:45 p.m.
Where: LY 107.33 (Archer Library)
Workshop description: The first session “Using Open Textbooks in Your Teaching” will provide an introduction to open textbooks before moving to a discussion of approaches for incorporating these tools into your teaching. This workshop will engage participants in finding, analyzing, and reflecting on how they can incorporate open textbooks in their teaching. Participants will leave the session with a deeper understanding of open textbooks and how they can improve both student education and instructors’ teaching experience. This workshop is presented by Cara Bradley, Research & Scholarship Librarian and Elsa Johnston, Open Textbook Program Manager, University of Regina.
