Alternative Learning Materials Initiative and Zero Textbook Cost: October 25

Please join us for the Teaching and Learning Center session "Alternative Learning Materials Initiative and Zero Textbook Cost," presented by Chris Hulsman, electronic and educational resources librarian, on Tuesday, October 25, from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. in Butler Library 318.

Does your course have no additional costs for textbooks or learning materials? Find out how to tag your course as zero textbook cost (ZTC) in Banner. This short workshop will reveal the possibilities of reusing, remixing, retaining, revising, and redistributing content to fit your course. Explore the possibilities of open educational resources (OER) and alternative learning materials. We will discuss the use of OER, library subscription content, and courseware available through SUNY OER Services. Discover Butler Library’s new OER repository for Buffalo State faculty to share openly licensed learning materials and track downloads and usage. Please join us in uncovering the possibilities of using and creating materials for your course.
