Faculty: Adopt an Open Textbook

Posted on: September 28, 2021

It’s textbook adoption time! Less than 2 weeks until the deadline to nail down your textbook choices for spring.

Next semester, try open textbooks. They offer a more affordable alternative for students without compromising on quality. 

Get started here: 

  • Faculty Textbook Portal: find shared library collections, open textbooks, and ebooks (some to purchase through VIVA) for course use. 
  • Open textbook collections: full-length textbooks that you may freely use, distribute, and even edit for your course.   

Learn more: Apply by October 5 for an in-person workshop on open textbooks on October 12. Or apply by October 14 for an online, asynchronous workshop. You’ll be eligible to receive a $200 stipend after completing either workshop!
