Active Teaching Lab: eTextbooks

December 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Scroll down to register! Electronic textbooks provide digital access to content and have the potential to save students thousands of dollars. What are the benefits and challenges of eTexts? How does going digital change the way students prepare and interact with course information? How do you go about making an eText? We explore the process of creating, implementing, and revising electronic textbooks. See what options are available and which ones may work in your classes.

Walk-ins welcome but registration appreciated to ensure refreshments for all. Bring your laptop or mobile device for hands-on experimentation. Have opinions or experience on the topic? Sign up as a contributor.

The Active Teaching Lab is a Faculty Engagement program with sessions held on Thursdays from 1:00-2:00pm (room 302) and Fridays from 8:30-9:45am (room 120) in the Middleton Building (1305 Linden Dr.) during fall 2018. Check out upcoming Labs or read the recaps from past Labs. We build interdisciplinary conversations that are more emergent than a presenter and more dynamic than a panel — a conversation with colleagues sharing challenges, solutions, and experiments on topics selected by a variety of stakeholders.

Sign up for regular Lab announcements by sending an email to join-activeteaching@lists.wisc.edu.
