Not another term paper? What to do if your alternative assignment is a bust.
Developing alternative assignments that provide students with creative ways to demonstrate their knowledge isn't always easy. Learn from colleagues about what they have tried and what they did when it didn't work perfectly the first time (or the second time).

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, firstname.lastname@example.org. Co-sponsored with the University Library
