The call for more accessible, affordable, and relevant education has never been louder. Between rising tuition costs and expensive course materials, many students are being priced out of receiving higher education.

Open education has made great strides in bridging accessibility gaps and lowering costs, making quality education experiences available on a much wider level. But we've only reached the tip of the iceberg. OER can revolutionize the traditional education model by going beyond simply transforming content delivery. Enhanced with the right tools, open source content can be used to deliver truly engaging learning experiences that improve student outcomes and retention.

This session explores how Forsyth Tech is mapping their efforts to create an innovative classroom experience through the combination of OER and Next Generation Learning principles. Come learn how to use Next Gen Learning and OER to increase student engagement, outcomes, and retention, while better preparing them to be successful in today's workplace.
