Markstein Gets Open Education Grant!

Markstein received a $2500 Open Education Grant from the UMass Library to develop a free textbook alternative for General Genetics, Biol 283. Given that the average genetics textbook costs students $200 and there are 200 students enrolled in the course, Markstein’s new resources will save her students about $40,000. The resources will be made available to the larger academic community through the Open Fly website (to be released in summer 2015).
