AMS advocates for open educational resources in Textbook Broke campaign - Amrita Aggarwal, the Ubyssey

Now in its fifth year, #TextbookbrokeBC engages students about the costs of learning materials by asking them how much they spent on textbooks. The campaign is part of the AMS’s larger advocacy efforts for the development of open educational resources (OERs) at UBC. This year the BC government committed $3.26 million towards the development of OERs to help alleviate the financial burden on students.
