Open Educational Resources and URI -- They Won't Learn If They Can't Afford the Textbook

Friday, November 18, 2016 at 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Carothers Library, Galanti Lounge 15 Lippitt Rd, Kingston, RI 02881

Textbook prices are rising far faster than inflation, and, if anything, the cost of textbooks causes more dissatisfaction among students than tuition. Come hear Nicole Allen of SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) speak about the advantages and challenges of Open Educational Resources and how their adoption can benefit URI's faculty and students without undercutting pedagogy and Academic Freedom.
