Affordable Textbooks Symposium

Event Date: 
Friday, March 9, 2018 -
09:00 to 12:00
Event Location: 
University Library Lilly Auditorium (UL 0130)

With sponsorship from the Indiana University Office of Scholarly Publishing and UITS, IUPUI University Library is hosting a half-day symposium on affordable course materials. The National Center for Education Statistics estimates that IUPUI undergraduates paid $1,204.00 on books and supplies in the 2016/2017 academic year. The high cost of textbooks contributes to student debt, low retention rates, and negatively impacts the quality of student life. This expense adds to the many barriers to success faced by lower income and food-insecure students.

This symposium will explore the connection between course material costs and student success, progression, and retention, and will feature three experts on affordable course material from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Attendees will also learn how programs (IU eTexts) and software (Pressbooks) can be used to adopt or create affordable textbooks and materials in IUPUI courses.

Panelists:

Steel Wagstaff (Educational Technology Consultant, University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Kris Olds (Professor of Geography, University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Carrie Nelson (Librarian and Director of Scholarly Communication, University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Michele Kelmer (Principal Unizin IT Consultant, IU UITS)
Kevin Berkopes (Director, Mathematics Assistance Center and Statistics Assistance Center, IUPUI)

A light breakfast will be provided. Please register by March 6, 2018.
