The high cost of text books is a growing concern in higher education, especially as tuition and living costs continue to rise. New Jersey Senate Bill S 768 (now enacted) requires institutions of higher education to develop an open textbook plan. While there are several ways to reduce text book costs, the most effective is to adopt “open” textbooks that are free to use and demonstrate support for the Open Educational Resources (OER) movement.
At this workshop, Seton Hall librarians will explain the benefits of OER and provide faculty with information and resources for using open textbooks in their courses.
Light refreshments will be provided.
This workshop is also open to faculty from the South Orange campus and the Law School.
