Webinar: Cost Savings and Beyond

Demonstrating Impact and Effectiveness with Open Education

Date: March 7, 2024
Time: 12 - 1pm PT (3-4pm ET)

Whether you’re getting started with a new project or leading a mature open education initiative, the questions of how to demonstrate effectiveness, measure impact, and quantify value are always relevant.

What do key stakeholders care about, and which metrics and proof points will resonate with them? As you build support for your initiative, what success stories are you trying to tell, and for what purpose?

Attend this webinar to gain inspiration and ideas from a thought-provoking panel of open education leaders as they share how to think strategically and practically about demonstrating the value of open education.
