• Textbook Affordability Team


  • TAT Mission Statement: Facilitate adoption of Open Educational Resources (OER) and MHCC Library Resources as curricular options for faculty to significantly reduce textbook costs to MHCC students.

    The Textbook Affordability Team (TAT)

    We began our work in the Fall of 2015, following a visit from Dr. Cable Green, Director of Global Learning at Creative Commons. Dr Green delivered an OER keynote lecture and workshops for the 2015 Faculty In-Service. Watch the streaming video of Dr. Green’s lecture here.

    MHCC President Dr. Debra Derr and other college administrators gave their support to MHCC employees to keep the momentum going by forming the TAT. We are a dedicated and enthusiastic group of college faculty, staff, managers, administrators, and student government officers working together to develop and maintain campus-wide support services for faculty as they adopt OER and/or incorporate library resources to reduce textbook costs, all for sake of Student Success!
