with Cheryl Aschenbach, Dan Crump, Dolores Davison, & Una DalyThu, 03/10/2016 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm (Pacific Time)
The goal of the College Textbook Affordability Act of 2015 (AB 798) is to save college students money by empowering professors and local campuses to adopt high quality, free and open educational resources (OER) for courses materials. Colleges can submit proposals for their local textbook affordability programs and receive up to $50,000 to implement their programs and report on achieved student savings.
A Request for Proposals (RFP) is now available with a submission deadline of June 30, 2016. Come and hear about the guidelines, requirements and processes for campuses to submit proposals and an overview of the COOL4Ed resources that can help you to achieve your OER adoption savings goals. Speakers from California OER Council (CA OER) and the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) will be featured.
