Dr. Joseph Nowakowski named an OhioLINK Open Textbook Network System Leader

Muskingum University Professor of Economics Dr. Joseph Nowakowski has been named an OhioLINK Open Textbook Network (OTN) System Leader. One of seven selected from OhioLINK member institutions, Nowakowski will attend the OTN Summer Institute (OTNSI), a training program, in August at the University of Minnesota.

System Leaders will coordinate OhioLINK OTN awareness and advocate initiatives regarding open educational resources and open textbooks as part of OhioLINK/Ohio Department of Higher Education affordable learning initiatives for higher education.

OhioLINK created a consortium-wide membership with OTN, a high-profile and growing collaboration of schools, universities and institutions that promotes access, affordability and student success via open textbooks.

At the training program, the leaders and OTN staff will collaborate and coordinate “train the trainer” sessions before the workshops, focused on developing campus leaders, are implemented and offered in Ohio next fall.
