About the panel

Building on its nationally recognized, multiyear partnership with Lumen Learning, SUNY has expanded its network of Open Educational Research-related partnerships with external organizations who understand the deeper impact OER can have for campuses, faculty, and students. These partners include commercial entities including Lumen Learning, rpk GROUP, and Faculty Guild, as well as not-for-profit entities such as Ithaka S+R. Participants will learn how this results-focused networked ecosystem provides gains for all members by leveraging unique strengths, co-creating new opportunities, and offering a valid model for building an infrastructure that supports continuous innovation in higher education.
