Driving Awareness and Adoption of Open Textbooks
Have you successfully created or adopted an open textbook? Your story could be enormously influential to an educator who is considering making the leap to open textbooks.
We’re anxious to post success stories in any form, but we’re particularly enthusiastic about our growing library of video testimonials. If you’re intimidated by the thought of recording a video for the world to see, don’t be! Any smartphone can do it, and we’re much more interested in authenticity than Hollywood production values. We’ll work with you to make a video that we’re both proud of.
We invite you to help drive the adoption of open textbooks by sharing your success with your colleagues. Contact us for more information.
Peer reviews play an essential role in the textbook adoption process. They are especially important for educators who are considering open textbooks for the first time.
We make two requests of our reviewers: that they agree to review the entire text, and that they follow our structured review process. The process involves scoring each textbook according to five specific criteria, and then providing comments on each of the criteria.
We invite you to help drive the adoption of open textbooks by joining our distinguished panel of peer reviewers. /Contact us for more information.
After two decades teaching formal logic, it was clear that most students would have more interest in the exacting substance of logic, if there were more humanism and general culture in the course content. Thus arose Logic Gallery: a century-by-century tracing of the concept of logic since ancient Greece including passages from 164 famous scholars, biographical screeds, over 500 illustrations, and links for further study.
