Power Publishing Day


On average 60% of students try to delay or avoid purchasing course materials due to underusage and material costs. Often faculty and administrators try their best to drive student success and affordability through numerous tools and resources available here at NSU. Through the latest trends and opportunities in course materials, and a partnership with the NSU Bookstore and NSU Libraries, ways to drive down cost in materials is a real opportunity. This presentation will discuss the partnership with the NSU Bookstore and NSU libraries to help drive student success, explore opportunities that faculty have to create Open Electronic Resources (OER) and/or acquire OER and library subscribed materials for their classrooms, and how NSU can host OER content within the institutional repository, NSUWorks.
