MVLA: High Priced Textbooks

This six (6) week asynchronous course highlights options for saving students money by replacing expensive textbooks with low-cost or no-cost options. Along with library resources and other cost saving measures, participants will explore open educational resources; class resources that are freely available to students and freely editable by faculty. It also provides an opportunity to explore these textbook alternatives, plan for integrating this material into courses, and identify and develop effective strategies for presenting this new content.
