Libraries to Host Workshops on Reducing Textbook Costs for Students - University of Arkansas
The campus community is invited to a series of events Tuesday, Sept. 24, in ARKU 512 to learn about ways to reduce the cost of textbooks for students. Speakers from the Open Textbook Network will be visiting the University of Arkansas to provide a full day of workshops focused on open educational resources. Earlier this year through the Libraries' membership, the U of A became the first 4-year university in the state to join the Open Textbook Network. The Open Textbook Network brings together teaching faculty, academic librarians, instructional designers, campus administrators and others engaged in advocacy for open educational resources on over 600 campuses. Joining the Open Textbook Network provided the opportunity to host two of their national workshop presenters on campus.
