Open Education Initiative: Ditch Your Textbook

Post Date: 


The Open Education Initiative is a faculty incentive program that encourages the use of existing low-cost or free information resources to support our students’ learning.

This presentation highlights the successful Open Education Initiative begun at UMass Amherst in the spring of 2011. This initiative is co-funded by the Provost's Office and the University Libraries and is leveraged by a strong partnership among the University Libraries, Center for Teaching and Faculty Development, and OIT's Academic Computing, key elements of its success.
