Description

One of the big advantages of open educational resources is that they help students save money on the materials they need in order to succeed academically. Estimating the amount of money that students save as a result of your textbook affordability initiative is motivating because this issue is so important to students. It also provides a persuasive talking point when advocating for more resources to support course redesign around affordable materials. Amy introduced practices and best practices to keep in mind when you work with this type of data.
