LibreTexts will host the next LibreFest virtually on October 15, 2021.

LibreFest is free to attend but registration is required and available here.

This one-day workshop will give participants the opportunity to learn about how to use LibreTexts to create, adapt, or adopt OER for their courses. 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.

A tentative schedule is as follows:
