For faculty working on a course over the summer an thinking about adopting an open textbook, TRAILS is hosting a ReDesign Your Course with OER class during the summer. This is a step-by-step class that will walk through changing textbooks and laying out a course with some instructional design methods woven in. This class is asynchronous and can be taken at any point during the summer. It will be available the first of June. Individuals interested, curious about the details, or who want to know more before committing, please sign up here to get that information.
