Navigating the Changing Landscape of Textbook Affordability

← Back to list of events
Open Education Week is a national week of action celebrated by educators, advocates, students, and institutions to draw attention to OER and textbook affordability. From Zero Textbook Cost Degree programs at the California Community Colleges to the Affordable Learning Solutions projects in the California State University system, California has been a national leader by creating and implementing open and zero cost course materials. Despite these strides, there is considerable work to be done to ensure every student can access the materials needed to succeed. Over the last decade, the course materials landscape has changed rapidly —from increased use of digital course materials to new billing structures—and students, systems, educators, and policymakers need all the facts to keep pace with the times. On March 10, 2022, during Open Education Week, join the Michelson 20MM Foundation to learn more about the current state of textbook affordability at the University of California, California Community Colleges, and California State University systems and pose questions to those on the ground. Speakers include: JAMES GLAPA-GROSSKLAG Dean of Technology, College of the Canyons KRISHAN MALHOTRA Vice President of Legislative Affairs, California State University Student Association JASMINE PRASAD Vice President of Legislative Affairs, California Community College Student Senate TRUDI RADTKE Open Education Project Manager, Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) Former Education Technology Specialist, Imperial Valley College CAILYN NAGLE Open Educational Resource Program Manager, Michelson 20MM Foundation
