Celebrating 10 Years of the Alternative Textbook Grant: A Decade of Saving Students Money

Please join the University of Oklahoma Libraries at a reception to celebrate a decade of the Alternative Textbook Grant. Over the last 10 years, OU instructors saved students over 4 million dollars in textbook costs. The event will feature invited speaker Ursula Pike, who is the executive director of Grant Development & Compliance, an adjunct instructor of Creative Writing at Austin Community College, and editor of OERigin Stories: Pathways to the Open Movement. Previous grantees will be honored during the reception, and refreshments will be served.

Presentation description: Everyone has a story to tell. Our stories give insight into who we are but also how we arrived where we are. Ursula Pike believes that the best way to generate more interest in Open Education is by listening to the stories of the practitioners and learning how they came to work in Open Education. Her Open Educational Resource OERigin Stories (https://oer.pressbooks.pub/oeriginstories/) explores the stories of six leaders in Open Education from marginalized backgrounds. During her talk, she'll highlight the common threads in the stories and highlight why everyone's story is significant.

Please register for the event to RSVP.
