Past events

Adopt. Adapt. Author. Lunch 'n' Learn at OSU Cascades: Oregon State assistant professor Brianne Kothari decided to use a no-cost open textbook in her class, HDFS 361: Applied Research Methods. By doing so, she is saving OSU-Cascades students a significant amount of money each term. On Nov. 1, 2017, Brianne provided insight into how she selected the open textbook to replace a publisher’s text, and learn how others could join the movement to adopt, adapt and author open textbooks.
