East Georgia State College’s Assistant Professor of Biology, Ed Schneider, was recently recognized by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia’s Affordable Learning Georgia Initiative for his work in transforming the use of textbooks. Dr. Schneider’s work dealt with the adoption of no-cost materials, contributing to over a million dollars in savings to USG students in the academic year 2014.
Dr. Schneider and his team of fellow cohorts will be recognized during the upcoming Symposium on the Future of the Textbook, taking place on December 11-12, 2014. The symposium, a 24.5 hour invitational gathering, will feature state and national speakers discussing textbook affordability and visionary solutions for the future. The conference will be held at the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education.
