Outcomes: OpenStax
“I’m an FE lecturer in physics and the FE industry has
been hit rather hard by government cuts and we have
no money.
My head of department has told me that I can’t have
any textbooks for the classroom unless I source them
myself and then attempt to claim the money back.
Which is less than ideal because I may not get my
money back and sourcing textbooks is a very expensive
thing, so I’m not prepared to do that.” (1/2)
Case study: Further Education

“…The OpenStax [textbooks] can really
help with that so that’s interesting.
I’m going to try to edit the books
together to make them more relevant for
my course, and then send them off to
the reprographics department in my
college and get them printed there.
I can also potentially make them digitally
available to the students.” (2/2)

Outcomes: Open Textbook Network
35 out of 105 participants completed an incentivised review (33.3%)
20 out of 49 surveyed participants intended to adopt an open textbook
Picturecredit:Whyincentivesdon’tworkineducation…viaopensource.comislicensedCCBY-SA
All 13 academics said they would
either adopt or might adopt an
open textbook
“Two of the Anatomy and Physiology open texts will be introduced as part of the
students' recommended module reading lists (with links to the URLs) or via the
University Library. I expect that this will have a big impact, firstly on student savings due
to the absence of costs associated with "Open Textbooks". Secondly, I expect that the
books will impact on the students' learning experiences, due to the interactive nature of
the text books.”
(’Yes’ to adoption, post-survey respondent)
“I would very much like to adopt one, but I will need to first ensure that any book is fit
for purpose.”
(‘Maybe’ to adoption, post-survey respondent)
“I would say it is my role to encourage my colleagues to do this and this I'm very happy
to do so.”
(‘No’ to adoption, post-survey respondent)
“It has made me think more about the importance of open textbooks. How I can
sign post my students to utilise the open textbook directory, and how I may
contribute towards this (e.g. submitting a book) in the future.”
Workshop Participant (Glasgow Caledonian University. Via Interview)
“We are currently all writing module descriptors for our new course validation
and guess what? They all have Open Access Texts in the reading lists... I have also
had a meeting with the student union rep for the business school recently and
explained the Open Access texts. So I have a feeling we will be driving our
students much more towards their usage in the next academic year...”

  • 6. • 600 + institutions • $8.5 million student savings • 460 open textbooks • 60% of the Library’s textbooks have at least one review • 45% of educators participating in a workshop adopt an open textbook from the Open Textbook Library

  • 8. 7 high impact practitioner events across the UK; Focus on showcasing STEM OpenStax textbooks; 85 verified sign- ups.
  • 9. 14 workshops at 8 institutions; Staff from 19 universities; Over 100 staff participated with 43 in academic roles.
  • 10. • UK Open Textbook activity contributed in whole or part to 9 known adoptions • 24 additional UK sign-ups over course of project • Upsurge of UK interest in OpenStax Outcomes: OpenStax
  • 11. “I’m an FE lecturer in physics and the FE industry has been hit rather hard by government cuts and we have no money. My head of department has told me that I can’t have any textbooks for the classroom unless I source them myself and then attempt to claim the money back. Which is less than ideal because I may not get my money back and sourcing textbooks is a very expensive thing, so I’m not prepared to do that.” (1/2) Case study: Further Education Picturecredit:MoneybyPeterislicensedCCBY-SA2.0
  • 12. “…The OpenStax [textbooks] can really help with that so that’s interesting. I’m going to try to edit the books together to make them more relevant for my course, and then send them off to the reprographics department in my college and get them printed there. I can also potentially make them digitally available to the students.” (2/2) Mrs Bell, FE Lecturer, 4 Jan 2018 (ASE) http://ukopentextbooks.org/uk-open-textbooks/ase-2018-liverpool-3-6-january-2018/
  • 13. Outcomes: Open Textbook Network 35 out of 105 participants completed an incentivised review (33.3%) 20 out of 49 surveyed participants intended to adopt an open textbook Picturecredit:Whyincentivesdon’tworkineducation…viaopensource.comislicensedCCBY-SA All 13 academics said they would either adopt or might adopt an open textbook
  • 14. “Two of the Anatomy and Physiology open texts will be introduced as part of the students' recommended module reading lists (with links to the URLs) or via the University Library. I expect that this will have a big impact, firstly on student savings due to the absence of costs associated with "Open Textbooks". Secondly, I expect that the books will impact on the students' learning experiences, due to the interactive nature of the text books.” (’Yes’ to adoption, post-survey respondent) “I would very much like to adopt one, but I will need to first ensure that any book is fit for purpose.” (‘Maybe’ to adoption, post-survey respondent) “I would say it is my role to encourage my colleagues to do this and this I'm very happy to do so.” (‘No’ to adoption, post-survey respondent)
  • 15. “It has made me think more about the importance of open textbooks. How I can sign post my students to utilise the open textbook directory, and how I may contribute towards this (e.g. submitting a book) in the future.” Workshop Participant (Glasgow Caledonian University. Via Interview) “We are currently all writing module descriptors for our new course validation and guess what? They all have Open Access Texts in the reading lists... I have also had a meeting with the student union rep for the business school recently and explained the Open Access texts. So I have a feeling we will be driving our students much more towards their usage in the next academic year...” Workshop Participant (Senior Lecturer, Business, Management & Marketing, Staffordshire University. Via Email) Outcomes: Open Textbook Network
