02.03// Alternative Textbook Incentive Program: Faculty Insights

10:00am-11:00am

Location: Agnes Arnold Hall, Room 210
Presenters: Ariana Santiago, Dr. Layci Harrison, Dr. Eulises Avellaneda

Due to the high costs of commercial textbooks, 37% of UH students don’t purchase required textbooks; they also report earning poor grades, taking fewer courses, and not registering for specific courses due to textbook costs. Through the Alternative Textbook Incentive Program (ATIP), UH instructors replace traditional textbooks with open or alternative textbooks in their courses, allowing all students free and immediate access to course materials. This presentation will share ATIP application information and insights from faculty who participated in the 2019-20 ATIP cohort.
