Are you interested in publishing your own open textbook that can be easily shared, reused and updated? Do you think your academic field is in need of an innovative learner-centered resource that should be openly and freely available to all students?
The University of Groningen Library (UB) and the University of Groningen Press (UGP) are looking for teachers willing to participate in a pilot initiative on publishing our University’s first open textbook. Whether you want to convert already existing teaching materials into an open format or create an open textbook from scratch, work on your own or with a collective of authors, involve your students or colleagues from other institutions, our experts can guide you through every stage of the publication process and facilitate the publishing of your final product - a quality open textbook. Working alongside you on this initiative, our team will also develop the University’s own best practice and set up an open textbook publishing infrastructure.
Do you want to be part of this pilot? Please send us your ideas for publishing the University’s first open textbook before 15 November 2020.
