What do Students Think? Student Perceptions of Open Textbooks at Private Institutions

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

During the past two years, the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana (PALNI) has collected student perception data from over 100 courses that have adopted an open textbook. Using a LibWizard survey, we asked 1300 private college students using OER (and other zero-cost materials) about their experience and satisfaction, and how their studies and grades were affected. In this presentation we share highlights from this data, and offer our survey as an adaptable method of collecting student OER perception data.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Understand how students (especially at private colleges & universities) perceive open textbooks
  • Learn an adaptable method of collecting student OER perception data
