Are you passionate about making higher education more accessible and affordable for your students? Make plans to attend the next CTL Lunch and Learn on Tuesday, October 10, at noon in the MUB Alumni Lounge, featuring the Committee for Accessible and Affordable Learning Materials (CAALM).
During the luncheon members of CAALM will introduce the committee’s mission and discuss three critical areas of focus that promise to improve the way we approach course materials:
1. Enhancing Course Material Affordability:
Discover how inclusive access agreements with publishers can help reduce the burden of expensive textbooks and course materials. We’ll shed light on innovative strategies to make education more cost-effective without compromising quality.
2. Embracing Open Educational Resources (OER):
Explore the world of Open Educational Resources and learn how to find course materials tailored to your discipline. There is a wealth of freely available resources that can enrich your curriculum while reducing financial strain on your students.
3. Ensuring Digital Accessibility:
It’s time to ensure that your instructional materials are inclusive for all students, regardless of their abilities. We’ll share insights on the importance of the digital accessibility of course materials, including ebooks, PDF documents, slide presentations, and video recordings.
This Lunch and Learn event promises to be a source of inspiration, innovation, and collaboration. Lunch will be provided to those who register in advance. We look forward to seeing you there! Contact the CTL (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
