The three sessions will have the same content, so those interested should only register for one workshop. CARLI anticipates high interest in these workshops, so registration for the in-person workshops is limited to two people per CARLI member library.  To accommodate all who are interested, CARLI will be streaming the program on April 24.

Presenters:

  • Dave Ernst, PhD: Director, Center for Open Education; Executive Director, Open Textbook Network
  • Sarah Faye Cohen: Managing Director, Open Textbook Network

Disclaimer: The OTN Train-the-Trainers Workshops are best attended in-person as the day long program will include presentations and activities that may not translate well in a streaming environment.   However, as CARLI expects high interest in the workshops and with a registration cap of two in-person attendees per CARLI member library, we hope that providing a streaming option will allow those interested but not able to attend in-person to learn more about this topic.   The CARLI OER Task Force does plan to provide training on this topic in the future.

To register for an in-person workshop, choose one of these sessions:
Register for the April 23 program at Governors State University (9:00 am - 4:30 pm)
