"The 14th annual OpenEd17 conference was held in Anaheim, CA on October 11-13. Nearly 800 teaching faculty, librarians, instructional designers, and administrators attended the three-day conference focusing on all things related to Open Educational Resources (OER), open education, and open practice. Many sessions focused on the “Z-degree” initiatives at colleges, college systems, and states that are already implemented or are in development. A “Z-degree” provides a complete pathway to graduation with zero textbook costs. The UH System was represented by 10 faculty and staff representing librarians, instructors, and instructional designers from UH Manoa and 5 UHCC campuses (Honolulu, Kapiolani, Leeward, Maui, and Windward). Conference attendance for UHCC attendees was supported by the UHCC OER Initiative funds from Vice-President John Morton."
