In the face of rising costs, can students afford to participate in the educational process in ways that permit for their full academic success? How do educational materials fit into their already stretched budget? This webinar showcases data from two institutions who are exploring affordability initiatives, including open educational resources (OER). Results of both surveys will be reported and put into context with other initiatives and surveys of TN students in order to suggest strategic ways of addressing textbook affordability and increasing the use of OER.
