Description

Pressbooks is an online platform designed to encourage self-publication under a Creative Commons license.  It is easy to use and provides a variety of options for including media such as images and videos.  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.

Learning objectives:

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.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the Pressbooks Dashboard through the design of a book shell with a title, front matter, part, chapter, and back matter.
