Dear colleagues,

At 11 a.m. PST on Thursday, November 5, Rebus is hosting a session called Office Hours: Writing Math and Science Textbooks<https://www.rebus.community/t/office-hours-writing-math-and-science-textbooks-5-november-2020-2pm-et-11-am-pt/4212>. The event is described as follows:
Writing and publishing math and science open textbooks, lab manuals, and other related ancillaries usually involves a unique set of challenges. In this session, our guests will discuss their experience creating math and science textbooks on a variety of publishing platforms and tools including Pressbooks, LaTeX, and LibreTexts. Topics will include how to add formulas, create interactivity through PhET or H5P simulations, and ensure accessibility. This is not a how-to session, but rather an overview of the tradeoffs between platforms and a discussion of strategies for creating math and science open textbooks that meets author and student expectations.
This session would be of interest to those who are publishing math and science textbooks and want to hear about the different strategies that others are applying to the task.

If you would like to attend this session, you can RSVP online on the Rebus site.
