Timing: Send immediately following the instructor’s commitment to confirm IA participation
Confirming IA adoptions can be done in several ways, including having the instructor and publisher rep sign a form stating their understanding of the program and pricing. If you don’t care to take that step, it’s critical to confirm adoptions in writing, via email, as early as possible after receiving adoptions. This allows you to:
- Confirm final pricing to students
- Tell instructors what to expect
Here’s an email you can use to confirm IA adoptions with instructors:
