The TU Delft Library has been offering its services to aspiring Open Textbook authors for several years now. But what is an Open Textbook exactly? And why would you bother investing your time in writing and publishing one?
In this workshop we are going to walk you through the nuts and bolts of Open Textbook publishing. Next to learning about the “what”, the “why” and the “how”, you will have the chance to hear from two of our already published authors about their experiences. Christian Tiberius will talk about how he and his colleagues went about transforming their lecture notes, hand-outs and readers into a full-fledged textbook; and Timon Idema will share his thoughts and experiences on his work on a new, interactive textbook format, the Jupyter Book.
The workshop will also shed light on how the Library makes the process of publishing smoother and easier for you through its editorial, copyright and design services, so that you can focus on what matters the most: the actual knowledge you wish for students to acquire!
If you have any questions, please contact the Library’s Open Education Specialist, Marcell Várkonyi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
