Program Description

This topic is for attendees that would like to learn about the actual process of converting an existing course and its content over to using openly licensed resources (content and textbook). We will talk about the development process, the support needed, and share results from what our students have said about the newly designed course.

We would like to help attendees formulate a game plan for how a course actually moves through the Open Textbook adoption process. What resources need to be identified, and how long does the process actually take? Sheri will discuss her course redesign process, and Sean and Steve will discuss the support side.
