Location: 1060 Fetzer Center

Western Michigan University faculty are invited to apply by October 19, 2018. Capacity is limited and open textbooks are not available for all subjects. Preference will be based on textbook subject area availability.

After the workshop, participants will be asked to write a short review of an open textbook. Your review will benefit other faculty considering open textbooks.

If selected to participate, those faculty who complete both components, attending the Oct. 26 workshop and submit a written open textbook review, will receive $200 incidental pay.
