No Textbook Can Keep Up With Me

Keywords: Textbook, Current Events, Diversity, Novel Approaches

Abstract: The cost of textbooks is higher than ever and students can’t stand it. The textbook content also does not adequately satisfy faculty’s increasingly diverse teaching needs. This symposium brings together numerous faculty who teach one or more courses without a traditional textbook. We will discuss our different approaches to teaching off-book, our rationale for doing so, and the student response. After demonstrating the pros and cons of our own methods, we will engage in a rigorous debate of best practices and do our best to answer any audience’s burning questions.
