• Why has education been so slow to abandon expensive textbooks?
• How can educators still find legitimate sources online when so much fake and unvetted information lives there?
• What is the market of OER like today and how is it projected to change in the next 10 years?

Kim Thanos, Founder and CEO of Lumen Learning, will speak with us about the future of learning materials in higher education. Lumen Learning’s mission is to enable unprecedented learning for all students. Lumen provides open educational resources (OER) to create well-designed and low-cost course materials that replace expensive textbooks. Come hear Kim’s thoughts on these questions in addition to questions you bring.

As always, our meetups start with lots of networking with light refreshments before our talks begin (at 6:30p). See you there!
