Affordable Learning @ SF State "Lunch and Learn”

Key date: Friday, May 1, 2015 - 11:40 to 13:20
Location: LIB 121

Faculty, are you:

  • Concerned about the cost of textbooks and other instructional materials for students in your courses?
  • Worried that many of your students do not purchase required materials?
  • Wondering how you can make course materials more affordable for your students?

SF State’s Affordable Instructional Materials team can help!! Come to the Affordable Learning @ SF State "lunch and learn” to hear about funded projects that are saving student up to $300,000 next year. Additional (and optional) workshops will help you find and adopt an open textbook, identify free or low-cost instructional materials using the SF State library and other online resource collections, and learn about the digital textbook and custom publishing solutions available through the bookstore that may lead to student-cost savings.

Register today! Some workshop sessions may have limited seating.

Friday, May 1, 2015 11:45-1:15 p.m. Library Events Room 121

Lunch will be provided; please RSVP at  so the AIM team can plan accordingly. 

SF State faculty who have already successfully lowered the cost of learning for their students will share their success and answer questions about their experience and the impact on students. You will also have an opportunity to propose affordable learning projects of your own that explicitly reduce costs for students. Funding from $100 to $2500 is available for projects in 2015-16, depending on the scale of the effort and the anticipated impact on students.
