KEYNOTE PANEL: Saving Students a Billion Dollars

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As we've seen throughout the first ten Open Education conferences, "displacing adoptions" - formal classroom adoptions where open educational resources and open textbooks replace commercial textbooks - can save students significant money and improve learning outcomes. In this lightning panel session, representatives of major OER initiatives will report on the number of students they have impacted with displacing adoptions and the amount of money those students have saved.

Hi! I'm Nicole Allen, Director of Open Education for SPARC and part of the Organizing Committee of OpenCon 2016. My day job is leading SPARC's work on Open Education, including advocating for U.S. federal and state policy, supporting on-campus efforts to advance OER through academic libraries, and international advocacy for open education through the Open Government Partnership. I also help out with organizing OpenCon by coordinating the application and review process, and logistics for attendees. I've been working to advance open education since I graduated university about ten years ago (even before), and have a background in grassroots organizing and policy advocacy.

I've spent the last 18 years creating, clarifying, elaborating, and evangelizing the core ideas of open education to individuals, faculty, institutions, and governments. I've also worked to place a solid foundation of empirical research beneath these core ideas. Now, with my colleagues at Lumen Learning we're trying to change open education from a niche curiosity to a mainstream, unstoppable force for improving the quality and lowering the cost of education., Lumen Learning
