ZTC Faculty Incentive Programs

To increase ZTC course adoptions and encourage Faculty exploration and innovation in finding new, better, and less costly ways to deliver quality learning materials to students, Skyline College is providing professional development support and incentives for Faculty to convert one course currently using traditional textbooks to use zero-cost course material. Participate in the ZTC Early Adopters Program to get support and incentives while converting one course from a for-cost textboook or course material to ZTC.
