Transforming a commercial textbook in a course to OER and other affordable resources can require instructional design expertise, a deeper-than-usual knowledge of technology and accessibility, knowledge of open licensing and copyright, and a good amount of time. This may seem intimidating at first glance for busy instructional faculty, but teaching and learning support centers and libraries can help in providing the support faculty need to make the idea of transforming textbooks into reality.
In this joint event between LOUIS and Affordable Learning Georgia, teaching and learning professionals and librarians from the University of New Orleans and The University of Georgia will share the services they can provide to faculty in textbook transformations, along with outreach strategies to bring more faculty into the OER and affordable learning community.
