The University Press of North Georgia recently won a Complete College Georgia grant to develop an Open Educational Resources (OER) World Literature I textbook. This presentation will focus on textbook transformation, referring to our OER World Literature I textbook as a guide. Transforming textbooks with the University Press of North Georgia involves situational analysis, determining objectives and strategies, and making action plans, including proposal development, task flow, editorial review, instructional design, copyright clearance, ADA compliance, traditional pre-publication peer review, and production. We will discuss developing original textbook content that can replace or augment already-available OER for customized classroom use.
