"Faculty-provided affordable resources and services for students were the focus of the Affordable Learning Solutions EXPO and Faculty Recognition at the Titan Student Union (TSU) Tuesday.
Titan Bookstore and the Department of Online Education and Training (OET) hosted the event which featured presentations educating faculty on how to reduce student expenses and promote their success. Pollak Library, Faculty Support Services, Disability Support Services and book publishers presented their services at booths.
Titan Shops director Kim Ball said the program was designed to pull the many resources available to faculty, helping them lower course-material costs and allowing them to collaborate.
Thirty-four faculty members were honored for taking part in a CSU initiative from the Chancellor’s Office called Affordable Learning Solutions (AL$).
CSUF biology professor Merri Lynn Casem was one faculty members awarded. Casem participated in the summer training where she learned to implement affordable materials into classrooms."
