The PALNI Affordable Education Initiatives Task Force has proposed a multi-component project plan for PALNI to begin implementing this summer. This plan draws upon best practices and program elements other consortia use to further the use of open and affordable educational resources at their campuses. An informational presentation on this program is forthcoming.
Right now, we are seeking the power of PALNI to help us come up with a concise yet interesting name for this program. Some examples of peer initiatives are Affordable Learning Georgia, Open Oregon, MOST (Maryland Open Source Textbook), and Maricopa Millions to name a few. Have an idea for a program name? Reply here or email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 11. The submitter of our favorite program name gets a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card!
