Description

If you can't find a book that suits your needs… write one! Educators in K-12 and higher education are doing just that. This presentation will cover the process used to write three textbooks in a school district for three subjects in the pilot year 2016. The process that was developed and refined in the pilot year is now being used in schools to develop additional books. In addition, attendees will be introduced to a guide developed for authors, project managers, librarians and others in order to help them write and publish their own open textbooks.

Multiple Audiences.
