    • Jeff Gallant

      Mr. Jeff Gallant - Textbook Affordability at the Crossroads: The Present and Future of Educational Resources

      Five years ago, when Affordable Learning Georgia was just getting started, educational resource creators were focused on addressing the issue of textbook costs.   In 2019, many of the models and ideas to combat high textbook costs from commercial publishers, OER creators, and college stores have matured – to the point where the American Enterprise Institute noticed the first downturn in the rise of textbook costs in twenty years. With these mature models and ideas comes an entirely new set of problems: how will OER creators, commercial publishers, and college stores move forward in a world where neither Open nor closed are the default for educational resources? Jeff Gallant, Program Manager of Affordable Learning Georgia, will take a look at the present and future of OER and commercial publishers, along with the role of faculty, libraries, disability services offices, centers for teaching and learning, campus stores, and online learning departments in this new and complex wave of educational resource creation and distribution.

      Unconference proposals and registration are now closed. Please contact Tiffani Reardon at treardo2@kennesaw.edu for questions.

      KSU's Annual Unconference is an event planned by the KSU Distance Learning Center and the KSU Bookstore. Funding for the event is provided by the KSU Distance Learning Center.
