Brief Abstract

Research shows that the cost of course materials is one of the biggest challenges college students face. Students must make tough choices - finance their materials with debt, buy used copies, share digital resources, seek counterfeit options, or worse, nothing at all. Learning is suffering.

Extended Abstract

This is a solvable problem. You can help. Hear about emerging models – subscriptions, OER, and partnerships in curriculum development & course design – that make quality learning more affordable.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the affordability challenges facing today’s learners
  • Identify new and emerging models impacting student access and affordability
  • Review and evaluate best practices appropriate for your current program/institutional needs
