The Dept. of Human Nutrition, Food and Animal Sciences has teamed up with UH Outreach College and a host of contributors to produce Lifespan Nutrition, an open education resource textbook that will be the first such textbook developed to cover this core nutrition topic.
The book will include interactive study activities for students to reinforce the concepts they have learned, as well as resources to help instructors adapt the book to their courses. The book is the result of a highly collaborative project that includes CTAHR’s Distance Education Group, HNFAS faculty and students (current and former), contributors in private practice, and institutions such as the College of the Desert.
But before teachers and students can get their hands on the first edition, it needs a cover image! Please submit an image that reflects food and people of various ages within our local community. Submit your image to Lifespan Nutrition OER Textbook Cover Image by September 15.
“We are really excited to be working with an amazing group of collaborators that will provide another free textbook for students,” says Marie Kainoa Fialkowski Revilla. “This textbook is going to have some pretty innovative features that will help students to grasp the material and increase their interest about nutrition, from pēpē to our kūpuna.”
