The Role of Open Textbooks in Controlling Costs

Michelle Lebsock

Jed Duggan  

1:30-

The cost of college-level textbooks has increased exponentially over the last 30 years. This, combined with a constant increase in tuition and fees, and a reduction in the amount of available financial aid is pricing students out of the postsecondary education market. Even when students are able to afford the tuition and fees, they opt not to purchase one or more of the required textbooks due to cost, or change their schedule to take classes with lower textbook costs. This session will focus on the role of open (free) textbooks in reducing the financial burden placed on college students. Presenters will review valuable survey data and offer solutions like Open Stax College and Community College Consortium that allow faculty to help control the cost of higher education.

Susie Bussmann

Sandy Johnson

10:45-11:35

The ever increasing tsunami of digital resources require educators and students be skilled curators of all types of content. Useful tools like Learn.ist, Diigo, Scoop.It, and Twitter combined with skills such as social bookmarking, following, tagging, and sharing, empower users to filter, organize, manage, and curate content.They’re all part of the ever evolving dimensions of 21st Century information fluency. Educators need to be able to research, evaluate, curate, and share resources both to support their students in meeting ISTE Standards for Students 3.Research and information fluency (Students apply digital to digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information.) and to further their own professional development.
