The Effordability Summit is a regional conference that focuses on the use, development, and creation of quality and affordable curricular content. Hosted at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, the Summit invites attendance from students, faculty, technologists, librarians, campus store professionals, administrators and anyone else interested in the use, development, and creation of curricular materials in the K-20 environment (we welcome all educators from K-12, two year colleges, and four-year universities, both public and private). Topics discussed include open educational resources, inclusive access, equitable access, teaching and learning practices and commercial textbooks/materials and much more.
This year's summit focuses on "Accessibility." Presentations will focus on experiences and innovations related to adopting and advancing open educational resources, lowering educational costs, and enhancing the sustainability of open education programs. Topics include OER adoption and creation, inclusive access programs, library initiatives, and adapting "non-standard" materials to replace traditional textbooks.
This is an in-person conference and registration for the event is free!
Conference keynotes will be live streamed for registered attendees who are unable to attend in person.
