Presented by Una Daly, Community College Outreach Director, at the Mid-Pacific ICT 2013 Conference in San Francisco January 3rd.
The state of California recently adopted legislation to develop open textbooks for the 50 highest enrolled college classes and store them in a statewide repository. The goal of the legislation is expanding access to education by saving students thousands of dollars each year in textbook costs. A key component of this equation is the adoption of open textbooks by the faculty and staff who support students and their learning.
Come to this session to learn more about finding, selecting, and adopting open textbooks and OER to enhance student learning. Case studies from the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources will be shared and an invitation to join their open and collaborative Advisory Board will be extended
