Following up on a post I made here a week or so ago, I have a presentation next Tuesday to our Provosts Council on Open Textbooks. A few of my colleagues have heard me test-drive this presentation a few times and it is coming together. While feedback so far has been good, I still don’t think its as solid of a case for considering open textbooks as it could be. If you have some time, please take a look and let me know what you think.
A little background on the logistics of the presentation – I’ll be handing out printed examples I (McAfee) and II (Illowsky & Dean) at the beginning of the presentation (paper copies/examples of open textbooks) and I have about 15 minutes to make my case.
