Overview: At a time when the student experience is a central priority for higher education institutions, and demands for personalised learning coincides with an increasingly diverse student population, have course materials kept pace with student needs?
This seminar will provide an insight for publishers, librarians and lecturers interested in the opportunities to create bespoke textbooks and learning materials in partnership. Through case studies involving both smaller and larger publishers and with context from both librarians and academics, the aim is to find a way forward to meet the needs of our collective customer: the student.
