Textbook Affordability Week Video Contest
Faculty, are you using low or no-cost textbooks in your classes? Students, frustrated by the rising cost of textbooks? Here’s your chance to tell your story and win a $100 University Store gift card!
Over the last few years, faculty at Bloomsburg University have become increasingly concerned about the cost of course materials and have made various changes to their courses to help ease the burden on students. Faculty have used:
Think about the ways you as a faculty member or student have used these low and no-cost course materials. Maybe you have used them as the main text in a class, or to supplement a traditional print textbook. Maybe you’ve searched them out on your own to help you prepare for a standardized test or to help you understand material in a course you’re taking when the main textbook just isn’t cutting it. If you’re a faculty member, think about how this material has helped you customize your course or provide instruction on a topic that you might not otherwise have been able to cover. If you’re a student, think about how these low or no-cost textbooks have let you do other things with your money. And then… make a video about it!
Who: Open to all currently enrolled BU students (graduate and undergraduate) and classroom faculty. Student and faculty videos will be judged separately.
What: Make a video (no more than 3 minutes) about how using low and no-cost textbooks and other course material has impacted your teaching and/or learning.
