Open Textbook Institute

South Central College


South Central College (SCC) started upon a two phase program to encourage faculty adoption of open textbooks. The first phase provided face to face and online overviews of open educational resources to groups of faculty members. The second phase consisted of two summer institutes: one for exploring open textbooks, and another for actually implementing them into the curriculum. In the latter, faculty were provided support from knowledgeable SCC staff who were dedicated to the project.
