Minnesota State is partnering with the University of Wisconsin, Stout, for the annual “E”ffordability Summit: Access The Future. The “E”ffordability Summit will be held at the University of Wisconsin-Stout in Menomonie, WI.

Stop by the Minnesota State Rooms!

On March 17, Minnesota State will have dedicated rooms, Cedarwood and Maplewood, at the “E”ffordability Summit for OER round table discussions and an OER Remix Challenge!

Round table discussion sessions:
  • 9:45 am
  • 11:15 am
  • 1:30 pm

Stop by during one of the round table sessions to engage in a pick-up conversation around open educational resources, Z-Degrees, and other textbook affordability topics. Table groups will nominate facilitators and let the conversations flow. Light refreshments and a networking atmosphere provided courtesy of Minnesota State.

OER Remix Challenge

4:00 pm

Grab a friend or join an existing team of educators to compete in the OER Remix Challenge! Teams will develop a small set of learning outcomes, choose a digital delivery platform, and then scour the Web in earnest – creating a standalone open educational resource in just 60 minutes! 

Prizes will be awarded to those teams whose creations most delight a distinguished group of Summit judges.  There will be intensity, intrigue, and free educational resources (of course)!

The “E”ffordability Summit is an opportunity for anyone concerned with the cost of educational materials. It brings together a diverse group to discuss topics centered around providing quality and affordable curricular content. This summit is about sharing information, innovation and forging opportunities for collaboration regardless of the institution. This year’s theme, “Access The Future” provides an opportunity for attendees to share their best practices, experiences, and issues relating to the use of open educational resources as well as other educational content affordability topics.
