In Fall of 2020, this OER textbook was adapted to be used by the Wisconsin Technical College System for their Medical Terminology course. A team of instructors and librarians from across the 16 technical colleges collaborated to get this open education resource (OER) book adapted specifically for Wisconsin Technical College students so they could take the Medical Terminology course with no additional textbook costs!
Two teams worked virtually during the COVID-19 Pandemic and beyond to adapt and edit the textbook to support WTCS curriculum.
Team 1, consisted of:
- Heidi Belitz, Lakeshore Technical College
- Stacey Grimm, Lakeshore Technical College
- Coleen Allee, Lakeshore Technical College
- Khusboo Baskota, Lakeshore Technical College
- Ashley McHose, Lakeshore Technical College
- Kelly Carpenter, Lakeshore Technical College
Team 2, consisted of:
- Traci Gotz, Gateway Technical College

Wisconsin Land Acknowledgment
We acknowledge and honor the inherent sovereignty of the 12 tribal nations in Wisconsin that are pictured on the map below.
We take time to call out the need for each of us to learn about the tribal nations in our communities, create meaningful collaboration and partnership, and lift up the voices of native people. Also as educators, we need to work to decolonize our curriculum and engage in antiracist pedagogy. To learn more about the tribal nations within Wisconsin, please see The Ways: Great Lakes Native Culture and Language webpage.
