Registration is now open!

In-Person Workshops from the Open Textbook Network Trainers

On April 23, 24, and 26, CARLI will be hosting trainers from the Open Textbook Network (OTN) when they give Train-the-Trainer workshops as part of CARLI? s OTN membership.


April 23: Governors State University
April 24: Loyola University Chicago, Water Tower Campus
April 26: Heartland Community College

The three sessions will have the same content, so those interested should only register for one workshop.

Who should attend:
These sessions are intended for librarians or library staff who plan to give training sessions at their local institutions. The OTN? s Train-the-Trainer workshop will increase participants? familiarity with the nuances related to the issues around open textbook adoption; strengthen presentation capacity for future open textbook workshops; and enhance open textbook program development.

CARLI members are encouraged to bring with them a local partner be it another librarian or library staff member or someone on their campus also involved with OER including but not limited to instructional designers, faculty or campus staff members involved with local OER efforts, or university administrators.

Registration information:
Due to expected high interest in these workshops, registration is limited to 2 people per CARLI member library. A waitlist will be established.

Registration will open on February 1 at noon. If registration is not full on March 15, registration will be opened to those on the waitlist. Registration will close for all workshops on April 8.

CARLI plans to stream the program on April 24 for those not able to attend in person. The program will NOT be recorded. You do need to register for this option.
