Summer Institute and Summit

The Open Textbook Network is excited to announce the agendas for our annual Summer Institute and Summit!

Held August 7 – 11, 2017 at the University of Minnesota, these events are opportunities for new and continuing member delegates to collaboratively develop open textbook programming strategies and build a community of practice. We hope you can join us to learn, discuss, connect and have fun with your colleagues who are working across the country to grow open textbook programs.

Please register by June 2 via Eventbrite.

2017 Theme: Make it Your Own

The OTN will launch new and redesigned resources and templates for members to customize for their programs. Make these materials your own based on your institutional context, the latest research, and best practices from across the Network.
