California Education Code 78052 allocated to the California Community Colleges $115 million to “develop and implement zero-textbook-cost degrees and develop open educational resources.” It also introduced the further requirements including that districts “[d]evelop degrees with consideration for sustainability after grant funding is exhausted, including how content is updated and presented,” and that “[t]he chancellor’s office shall ensure that a grant does not result in the development or implementation of duplicate degrees for a subject matter to avoid duplication of effort and ensure the development and implementation of the greatest number of degrees for the benefit of the greatest number of students.” In practical terms, what does this mean for your local ZTC efforts? Join us for a lively conversation about avoiding duplication and ensuring currency and sustainability in our ZTC Program efforts.
