In response to student concerns about the current price of course materials, SBCC has secured a grant to provide professional development opportunities and support for faculty interested in switching from high-cost, traditionally published textbooks to free or low-cost Open Educational Resources.
Please consult the flow chart and stipend structure for Open Educational Resources adoption guidelines and incentives.
