On March 30-31, 2020 as part of the CNI Spring virtual Member Meeting, we held two convenings of an Executive Roundtable on strategies for acquiring instructional materials; this included both open educational resources and “inclusive access” type arrangements. It also discussed experiences in providing instructional materials support for the sudden transition to remote instruction that took place throughout higher education in March 2020 in response to COVID-19. The report from this Roundtable is now available at
I hope you find it helpful.
On Tuesday, June 9th, 2-3:00 ETD, I will be speaking about our findings from the Roundtables in a Zoom webinar “New Strategies for Acquiring Learning Materials: What We Heard at the Spring 2020 Executive Roundtable.” This session will allow a good deal of time for questions and discussion. All CNI member representatives, as well as all Spring 2020 meeting registrants, are invited to attend the live event; registration details were sent in mid-May. If you would like to attend but have not yet registered, please contact Beth Secrist. Please note that while my presentation will be recorded and made publicly available shortly after the session, Q&A and discussion will not be recorded.
