Authoring Open Textbooks (MnLC webinar)

Thursday, October 5, 2017 -
2:00pm to 3:00pm

This month we'll continue our "Best of the MN eLearning Summit" series from 2–3 p.m. on Thursday, October 5. Joining us via WebEx will be Melissa Falldin from the University of Minnesota, presenting:

Authoring Open Textbooks

If you can't find a book that suits your needs, write one! Educators in K-12 and higher education are doing just that. This presentation will cover the process used to write three textbooks in a school district in the pilot year 2016. The process that was developed and refined in the pilot year is now being used in schools to develop additional books. In addition, attendees will be introduced to a guide developed for authors, project managers, librarians, and others in order to help them write and publish their own open textbooks.
