At a time when commercial textbook prices are soaring and a fundamental shift in the way we access and create information has occurred, why not consider using or authoring an open textbook? We will learn how to find and adopt high-quality openly licensed textbooks and educational resources in this participatory class. Open licensing means that you can freely incorporate open resources into a textbook that meets the needs of learners in your course and provide re-usable resources for other educators.
