SUNY will look at similar measures, using a framework already in use by Open SUNY Textbooks.”

Keene State College hosted the 6th annual University System of New Hampshire Academic Technology Institute where the theme was Open Education: Pedagogy & Scholarship in a Connected Environment. Forty-five faculty from across the University System of New Hampshire participated and pledged to design and implement open education project during the next academic year.
While other schools and university systems have made a commitment to Open Educational Resources (aka OER and often in the form of open textbooks), USNH is the only US System to commit to Open Education which includes OER, Open Pedagogy and Open Access. Our project was picked up by Inside Higher Education which is kinda cool!
