Today: Opportunity to learn more about OER Publishing

As members of OhioLINK, JCU and Grasselli Library are OEN (Open Education Network) consortial members. One of the benefits is access to their workshops and educational opportunities. Check out this opportunity to learn more about OER publishing.

Pub101 is a free, informal orientation to publishing designed for librarians, instructional designers and others who want to learn more about supporting open textbook authors. It’s open to everyone in the OEN.

I hope that you will extend this invitation to your consortial members. RSVP is requested by April 5. Please register via Zoom (https://umn.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJwsdO2srDojG9GPqXaxZvIb7zUdtlWxP-Ev).

About Pub101
Pub101 is the Open Education Network’s free orientation to open textbook publishing. Participants meet for seven one-hour sessions (link here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1RVYw2ace_L42x8vxo0nGlJC6rHVvLDzYKeBR4RMdbi4/edit), hosted by colleagues who share their recommendations in friendly, conversational presentations that include time for Q and A.

Participant Feedback
· This was exactly the type of training I was looking for.
· How thoughtful many of the speakers were about capacity and reflection and self-care. I wasn’t expecting that, but I really needed to hear it.
· I really liked it all – while we don’t have a publishing service and no capacity for such in the near future, I learned so much about possibilities and what we might aspire to.
