The most useful textbook & academic posts of the week: December 29, 2017

×
In this final week of 2017, few creatures were stirring with new articles and content between the holidays, but we were able to locate a few gems for consideration as you reflect on this year and prepare for the next. For starters, looking back, 2017 was a breakthrough year for OER and a time of textbook pricing discussion impacted by continued changes in available purchasing options. In contrast, looking forward, we found articles on book marketing traps to avoid, how to maintain a healthy competitive nature, and self-care practices you may want to consider adopting in 2018. In this season of giving and in preparation for the gift of a new year on the way, keep in mind the words of Cheryl Alleway, "Writing is a gift to both the writer and the reader", and keep writing.
