TAA Member Pat McKeague, owner of XYZ Textbooks and MathTV.com, will be participating in a panel discussion at Stanford University on the future of online education, May 14 from 8-9:30 p.m. The discussion, “Reinventing the business of education,” is part of the 16th Annual New Frontiers in Computing event. “So far, the community colleges have been left out of most of the discussions on MOOCs, so I am very happy and excited to be invited to this conference,” said McKeague.
TAA’s 2014 Conference on Textbook & Academic Writing in Baltimore, MD, June 20-21, will include a new track on “Writing Craft”. The track will feature four presentations by veteran textbook and academic writers in the form of sessions, workshops and roundtable discussions, including:
