We invite you to this event sponsored by CASTLE (Committee for the Advancement of the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning Excellence) where we will examine learning from “smart” e-books and major e-resources, such as supplemental publisher materials that provide activities and content for courses. We will review the research on what makes these materials successful, discuss different forms of “e-books,” and explore how to successfully use e-learning resources and e-books. A Certificate of Achievement will be available to anyone who attends the entire seminar and completes the application process.
