Join the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources and CCC Confer on April 30, 10:00 am Pacific for a panel discussion on rebooting California’s higher education system with Open Education, MOOCs, and an online Student Access Platform.

The California legislature, responding to shrinking budgets and huge wait lists for gateway courses, has proposed:

  • Open textbooks
  • Credit for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)
  • The California Online Student Access Platform

Three leaders in the field share their thoughts on this revolution in higher education. What are the next steps for ensuring the success of our students? How do we continue the prominence of California’s institutions of higher education?

Dean Florez, CEO of the Twenty Million Minds Foundation, and former majority leader of the California senate, has been a driving force behind the new legislation and instrumental in bringing stakeholders and MOOC thought leaders together to reboot higher education in California.

Dr. Barbara Illowsky, Mathematics professor and open textbook faculty co-author at De Anza Community College. An early developer of open educational resources to make college affordable, Dr. Illowsky has continued to push for digital interactivity to improve student learning outcomes.  In fall 2013, she plans to teach an introductory, descriptive, not-for-credit statistics MOOC.

Dr. Michelle Pilati, Psychology professor at Rio Hondo College and current president of the CCC Academic Senate has been closely involved with the implementation strategy for the new legislation to set up an Open Educational Resources (OER) Council containing faculty representatives from the three public higher education systems.

Sign up here to attend the webinar on April 30, 10:00 am Pacific
