The showcase will be an opportunity to hear directly from instructors who have adopted open and affordable materials and learn more about how students received their new materials. The event will kick off with a talk from Amanda Hurford (Scholarly Communications Director at the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana) about large-scale open education efforts in Indiana. Then a panel of IUB's 2020 and 2021 Course Material Fellowship Program (CMFP) fellows will explore the challenges and benefits of transitioning from a traditional textbook to other alternatives. Lunch will be provided, followed by an opportunity to talk one-on-one with CMFP fellows and IU Libraries staff about course material development options, tools, and support.
Attendees are welcome to drop in and out of the event as their session allows, but registration is required.
