This workshop for faculty, staff, and grad students provides an overview of considerations authors should attend to when creating their own open textbooks for use in their or others’ classrooms. Workshop facilitators with experience in open publishing will lead a discussion on what kinds of texts and digital objects are published in open textbook publishing, what copyright issues there are to consider, where to publish, and how peer review is conducted. Time will also be spent on addressing questions that participants have about specific open textbook projects they might want to work on or have in progress, and facilitators will provide feedback on organizational or developmental questions about how to move forward with completing an open textbook. There will be plenty of time for Q&A on participants’ own projects or ideas for open textbook projects.

Lunch will be provided. Limited to 20 attendees. Please RSVP by Monday, March 4

Facilitated by Cheryl E. Ball and Joshua Neds-Fox, Wayne State University Libraries Digital Publishing group
