This short course will introduce you to the platform, walk you through creating a free account, and provide you with tools and resources to help you start your own publication. By the end of the course, you will have a Pressbooks account, a title and placeholder for a publication, and a chapter outline of your work.
Participants will be able to…
- Explain how Pressbooks can be applied to an individual scholarship plan
- Consider 2-3 possible topics for publication in Pressbooks
- Identify options for including culturally responsive teaching practices and accessibility using the Pressbooks platform.
