Feedback form is now closed.

Opening Opportunities for Teacher Education is a project creating open textbooks for five or six core courses in teacher education. The Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) in the U.S. Department of Education has awarded Minnesota State colleges and universities a grant to create open textbooks for teacher education programs. Representatives from the Minnesota State colleges and universities will provide a first-hand look into the strategies and goals of this newly funded project. Come learn about the subjects being covered, the special emphasis placed on the construction of culturally and racially responsive texts, the timeline for new publication release, and the vision for creating an open curriculum that is both aligned to national teacher standards and adaptable to local standards.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Gain awareness of future open textbook publications for teacher education
  • Learn about planned approaches for constructing culturally and racially responsive texts for teacher education
  • Provide feedback to help inform the authoring of open textbooks for teacher education
