Affordable Learning Ohio Summit - Save the Dates!
The second Affordable Learning Ohio Summit will be held August 1-2, 2019 at Ohio Dominican University in Columbus. We’ll be touching on many aspects of textbook affordability: OER programs, integrating library materials and workflows into textbook initiatives, and the inclusive access textbook pilots and implementations across the state. One day will focus mainly on OER, the other will focus on inclusive access. Special guest speaker Nicole Finkbeiner from OpenStax at Rice University will speak on proven strategies for driving OER adoption on campuses. More details and an agenda for each day to follow. If you are interested in presenting or being on a panel, please contact Anna Bendo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ohio Dominican University is the perfect place to host this event. See why in this feature story: “There is also an affordable learning group at the university that meets regularly to discuss and implement both inclusive access, in which all students receive course materials at a discounted rate or at no cost at the beginning of a course, and OER initiatives. This includes sharing open resources, discussing which courses are best suited for either inclusive access or OER, and how to best design courses around low- and no-cost materials.” https://www.ohiolink.edu/press/ohio_dominican_leading_way_affordable_textbook_initiatives
