The State of Ohio's Digital Bookshelf Project (Pilot Program/Emerging Technology)
* Know how to overcome obstacles to class, institutional, and system-level adoption of digital learning materials.
* Discuss effective teaching and assessment strategies to capture the learning value of digital materials.
* Explore techniques for building disciplinary communities committed to learning innovations.
* Understand how the "tragedy of the commons" (pursuing individual benefits at the cost of system-level returns) guarantees the escalating cost of textbooks and the requisite reformations (changed behaviors of publishers, bookstores, institutions, faculty, students) needed to escape the paradox and increase the affordability of learning materials.
* Learn about conversion and "born digital" approaches to assuring timely access to digital learning materials for students with print disabilities (addressing one of the key challenges in digital learning environments).
