Join us at the Faculty Center for Professional Development (virtually or in-person in the Library (Building 1L), Room 203) to hear from a panel of CSI faculty members who have adopted and/or created textbooks and ancillary materials consisting of open educational resources (OER).  Colleagues from across the disciplines will share the benefits of integrating open textbooks or a combination of open and freely available material (Zero Textbook Cost or ZTC) into your teaching to CSI students. The panel will be moderated by the Emerging Technologies Librarian and OER Coordinator, Christina Boyle, who will share more about the support available via CUNY, including grant award monies, to adopt or author (individually or co-author) your own open course materials and textbooks. This program is open to all adjunct faculty, full-time faculty, and professional staff members. 

Presenters will include:

Charles Liu, Professor of Astronomy; George Vachadze, Professor of Economics; Janice Fioravante, Adjunct Lecturer of Media Culture; Stephen Ferst, Director, Center for Global Engagement; and Amy Stempler, Associate Dean and Chief Librarian.
