Free, Peer-Reviewed Textbooks? Really? Really!
Textbook costs have soared four times the inflation rate. Increasingly, students don’t buy textbooks. Free online textbooks, written and peer-reviewed by academics, offer a possible solution. Come hear Professor Barbara Illowsky, Open Educational Resources (OER) author and expert, talk about this growing movement. We’d love to include SCU faculty voices. If you use OER texts, contact Michal Strutin, email@example.com. Co-sponsored with the University Library
