Open source materials provide an instructor with the opportunity to have more control over the texts required for their course by allowing them to fit the textbook to their course rather than being forced to make the course fit the textbook. These materials also provide instructors with a method to lower the cost of textbooks for their students. This workshop will give participants the opportunity to learn more about what open source materials are all about. The first part of the workshop will be a discussion of open source materials including the following questions: What does open source mean exactly? What types of open source materials are available? How can we be confident in the quality of open source materials (are they peer reviewed)? How will students access these materials? In the second portion of the workshop, instructors will work to investigate and integrate open-source content into their curriculum.
