Jisc’s Institution as e-textbook publisher project, developed in direct response to the unsustainable models and high price of e-textbooks being made available to institutions, has been exploring alternative ways to create learning materials for students.
As the next stage in this work, we are running a research project to understand why authors choose to publish textbooks and other learning resources.
We’re running focus groups in London and Manchester to understand author perspectives on these issues. This is a great opportunity to help shape the future of learning resources in UK HE.
