      “We will cultivate the culture and
      practice of using and contributing to
      open educational resources.”
    • The high cost of textbooks has reduced Washington citizens’ access to higher education.Full-time students spend approximately $1,000 on textbooks every year.
      College Board Report: Trends in College Pricing (2007)
    • English Composition I
      50,000+ enrollments / year
      x $100 textbook
      = $5+ Million every year
    • Open Education
      Open Course Library
      designing and sharing 81 high enrollment, gatekeeper courses
      for face-to-face, hybrid and/or online delivery
      to improve course completion rates
      lower textbook costs for students (<$30)
      provide new resources for faculty to use in their courses
      for our college system to fully engage the global open educational resources discussion.
    • New State Board “Open” Policy
      All digital software, educational resources and knowledge produced through competitive grants, offered through and/or managed by the SBCTC, will carry a Creative Commons Attribution License.
    • WA Legislation
      Faculty consider the least costly practices in assigning course materials, such as adopting the least expensive edition available, adopting free, open textbooks when available, and working with college librarians to put together collections of free online web and library resources, when educational content is comparable as determined by the faculty…
    • WA Legislation
      SSHB1946 – two big ideas – share technology and share content.
      (v) Methods and open licensing options for effectively sharing digital content including but not limited to: Open courseware, open textbooks, open journals, and open learning objects…
    • Legislative Strategy
      Partner with Legislators who care about:
      (a) efficient use of state tax dollars &(b) saving students money.
    • Student Advocacy
      WA CTC Student Voice Academy
      “The high cost of textbooks is a burden to students….”
      Top Issue three years running….
    • Hey Public K-20 Education!
      We must get rid of our “not invented here” attitude regarding others’ content
      move to: "proudly borrowed from there"
      Which textbook one uses is not a strategic advantage
      Nor can we (or our students) afford it
    • Questions
      What if all publicly funded educational content was open access? 
      Simple idea: public access to publicly funded educational materials.
    • Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and
      Career Training Grants Program
      $2 Billion DOL Grant
      All $2B of programs / courses produced must be openly licensed (CC BY)
      Community Colleges can download, modify and use any of it!
    • Only ONE thing Matters:
      Efficient use of public funds to increase student success and access to quality educational materials.
      Everything else (including all existing business models) is secondary.
      Read: “Disrupting College…”
    • Big Idea is…
      Taxpayer-funded educational resources should be open educational resources. 
      Information that is designed, developed and distributed through the generosity of public tax dollars should be accessible to the public that paid for it -- without artificial restrictions and/or limits.
    • Possible Policy
      Any [insert your State here] public or private K-20 education institution that receives any state operating, capital or student financial aid funding shall openly license (creative commons attribution licensing) and share, in a common open repository, all instructional resources created in part or in whole with state funding including: courses, textbooks, course packs, lesson plans, syllabi, slides, lecture notes, audio and video, simulations, academic journals, research data, digital labs, and other educational materials.
    • Slogans
      You should get what you paid for
      Public access to publicly funded educational materials
      Buy one, get one (David Wiley)
      Use of Open Textbooks needn't and should not be mandated.
      Quality, affordable, openly licensed textbooks will get revised, remixed, reused and redistributed
      Support faculty who want to build open textbooks / share their work.
      Release time, grants, professional development …
    • Legislative Strategy
      Textbook RFP?
      Higher Education
      Textbooks for top 100 highest enrolled courses
      Textbooks for 24 “Common Core” courses
