Please note registration is now closed. Recordings will be available on the LibreTexts YouTube channel shortly after the workshop has concluded.
LibreTexts will host the next LibreFest virtually from July 19-23, 2021.
This three-day workshop will give participants the opportunity to learn about LibreTexts in time to use it in one or more of their courses this fall. The goal of this workshop is to train people who want to use online textbooks in their own classes, and to also build a team of collaborative workshop trainers that can continue outreach efforts in the future.
