Elizabeth Johnston from Monroe College adopts College Composition
TELL US WHY YOU CHOSE TO ADOPT OPEN RESOURCES, WHAT DID YOU USE BEFORE?
To save my students money and to take advantage of digital multimodal resources; I also liked the flexibility of being able to create my own anthologies
WHAT HAPPENED THEN? HOW LONG DID IT TAKE TO SWITCH OVER?
I worked with the ATD grant team to develop my English 101 course; I then applied for internal grant money to create my Early British Literature course
WHAT WAS THE REACTION?
Students love saving money. In the Early Brit Lit course they are helping me to create and edit content; the text is a work in progress, and the students love being hands-on.
