Moving the Needle: Developing and Administering a Campus Affordability Program
The high cost of higher education is a current topic that resonates with almost all institutions in the United States. The difficult part for campuses is finding ways to address this issue. Many components of the rising cost of higher education are difficult, if not impossible, to effect. One area where we do have some options in relieving the burden on our students is in the realm of educational resources. The purpose of this presentation is to provide some background and perspective to administrators on engaging in a campus affordability/OER program. Block 1 will engage attendees with some basic information surrounding textbooks and curricular content. Block 2 will delve into topics germane to moving an affordability program forward. This journey will be guided by Dr. Dave Ernst, a national OER advocate from the University of Minnesota and Bob Butterfield, a practitioner in a broader affordability mission at UW-Stout.

Familiarity with concepts of coding can leverage your ability to deliver open content to students. Open
Education initiatives have come to rely on the Pressbooks editor as a convenient tool for authoring and publishing. In my position as Open Education Intern I helped to develop a revised version of Astronomy OpenStax within Pressbooks to meet the needs of a unique course at UW-Milwaukee. In completing this project, I developed new skills in Pressbooks for manipulating HTML, CSS, inserting internal links and implementing LaTex short code within Pressbooks. I will give an overview of the project, define the current issues with copying OpenStax materials into Pressbooks and workshop editing in text and visual modes.

What is ‘Open Pedagogy'? Principles & Practices That Matter
Building a better public educational system will require us not only to produce and adopt openly-licensed material, but to “merge OER advocacy with … pedagogical approaches that focus on collaboration, connection, diversity, democracy, and critical assessments of educational tools and structures,” as Robin and Rajiv have argued. In this roundtable, we will discuss how open pedagogy aligns with our values and share practical examples of how open pedagogy is transforming our own teaching practices.
