If you've ever wondered about how textbooks come into existence or why the cost of textbooks is so darned expensive, this is the session for you. Psychologist Jane Halonen will provide an insider's view of textbook publishing. She will talk about how authors get recruited, the process that publication entails, and the complex factors that keep textbook costs so high. She will also explore the promise of the open educational resource movement which attempts to deliver textbook sources at no cost to students.
