Report On Textbook Affordability


I have seen lots of news and blog posts about open source textbooks and education and current initiatives. Last semester I completed a research paper for my Technical Reporting course at WTC covering textbook affordability and impact. It discusses past and current initiatives as well as what is being done at Western to address these issues. I have included surveys, results, and other possible solutions. The appendix includes comments from fellow students, the college president, and campus shop manager. Lastly there is an extensive list of sources and additional links regarding this issue. I truly enjoyed researching this topic and raising awareness even if only on a small-scale. Please click on the link below to read the PDF version of this research report which is also located on my eportfolio website at https://360atupper.wordpress.com/ .
