Quote

“Adopting a text that was available as an eBook has meant that students can choose to either purchase the book, download it from the HSU library portal, or read it online. As a result of this adoption process, I have seen an increase in student's referencing the text in their class discussion. They connect the reading with their fieldwork experiences creating a more powerful learning environment.”
