SUNY has a strong history of openness and instructional innovation, including the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) to provide measurable impact on student success.
This year invites a large scale-up of OER thanks to the Excelsior Scholarship, which includes in its 2017-18 funding “$8 million to provide open educational resources, including e-books, to students at SUNY and CUNY colleges to help defray the prohibitive cost of textbooks.”
We hope you will join us on September 29 to learn more about how our campuses are making textbooks more accessible and more affordable, and how you can participate in the effort.
