I am excited to learn that my proposal to update our general biology 101 course here at the W to use all open source material was approved by the University of Mississippi Open Education Resource Z-Degree project, which is supported by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation! Although I’m not teaching 101 in the spring, I’ll be working on revising our course material over the next semester so that we can move away from expensive textbooks and incorporate materials that students can access and use more easily and are less of an economical burden. This program is a partnership with Lumen Learning and so I’ll likely be looking to the OpenStax open source textbook.
