Event Description

The ever-increasing cost of textbooks is making it more challenging for college students to afford necessary class resources, and the increase in virtual learning due to COVID has magnified the issue. While all students pursuing a college degree are affected by textbook costs, the impact is greater for some students than others. This workshop will cover the ways in which textbook affordability became a problem and resources that are available to instructors who want to explore making their course materials more affordable for students. Registration is required by October 14th.

Instructors who complete this workshop will be entered into a raffle for a library e-book purchase of their choice (up to $300). One participant will be randomly selected as a winner and Milner Library will purchase the e-book in support of textbook affordability.

This workshop is part of Milner Library’s Digital Discussions programming series and is co-sponsored by The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology and Milner Library.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
