Textbook Affordability Week Video Contest
Faculty: Using low or no-cost textbooks in your classes?
Students: Frustrated by the rising cost of textbooks? Looking for alternatives to buying the book?
Tell your story and win a $100 University Store gift card!
Think about the ways you as a student or faculty member use low and no-cost course materials.
Faculty: Maybe you use them as the main text, or to supplement a traditional textbook. Maybe they've helped you customize your course or go beyond what's covered in the text.
Students: Maybe you’ve searched them out on your own to help prepare for a standardized test or to help understand material when the textbook just isn’t cutting it. Maybe your prof teaches a zero-cost textbook course and you're able to do other things with your money than buy a book.
Think about it, and then… make a video!
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.
When: Deadline is 11:59 PM ET on Sunday, March 6, 2022.
To enter: Use this form.
