Adopting Open Textbooks
Can adopting open educational resources make education more accessible to learners and empower educators to share?
The information is a three-step process to adopting open textbooks for educators. It is a modified version of the Find, Author, and Share Open Textbooks course developed by the College Open Textbooks Collaborative.
The three major steps are:
1. Discovering open educational materials and selecting appropriate ones based on the various criteria;
2. Following an adoption process where you work with other stakeholders including students to promote a best-use model, and;
3. Sharing your knowledge of discovery and adoption of open educational materials with others in your discipline, campus, or learning community.
