Openness is going mainstream, whether it's called open educational resources (OER), open textbooks, or massive open online courses (MOOCs). Attend this panel discussion to find out how California Community Colleges are leveraging open education to lower student costs and expand access. Topics will include adopting open textbooks, designing open online courses at community colleges, and integrating openness into professional development. You will also learn how your college can become involved in the open education movement and participate in a community of practice to share knowledge and find partners for collaboration.
