In response to rising prices and the falling quality of college textbooks, a Lakeland Community College professor and a Lorain County Community College have done their part to make textbooks more affordable to students.
Lakeland Mathematics Professor Dr. Carl Stitz, of Painesville Township, was recently named among the outstanding faculty at University System of Ohio institutions who have creatively integrated digital content into their courses.
The Faculty Innovation Award was created by Chancellor Eric Fingerhut in 2009 to stimulate the creation of innovative and affordable instructional materials for students in the University System of Ohio.
Stitz co-authored “College Algebra” with fellow math colleague Dr. Jeff Zeager, of Lorain County Community College, who was recognized alongside Stitz by Chancellor Fingerhut.
The textbook is available online for students to download for free.
