9-11: On-Time Textbook Adoption Coffee Party, hosted by Linn-Benton Community College
Stop by RoastRunners Cafe to celebrate on-time adoptions with coffee sponsored by Open Oregon Educational Resources! Lawrence Lajoie, Director of Enterprise Services and textbook systems expert, will share information about how to adopt on time, how it helps student success, and why it’s required by the State of Oregon HB2919. Whether you use textbooks, OER, DDA, free online resources, a packet you wrote yourself, or no materials at all, every single course needs to submit a textbook adoption form to the Campus Store. Submitting your textbook adoptions on time to the Campus Store is a great reason to celebrate!
