Melissa Loble (Instructure)

Instructure - HigherEd & K12

In this session, experts from the higher education and open education communities will sit down to discuss the benefits and challenges of adopting open educational resources. The open education movement has had pockets of supporters and champions for years now, but, despite well-understood benefits of using OER and open pedagogical practices, adoption rates have been very low, and very few institutions have adopted a broad OER policy. Our panelists will discuss strategies to help increase adoption and how that will benefit your institution, as well as hot topics such as open badges, MOOCs, the #GoOpen initiative, and open textbooks.
