Ambassador and Westwood College Session Explores Successful Curriculum Standardization Strategies

First-Hand Perspective Gives CAPPS Members New Ideas to Streamline Access and Save Money

Ambassador Education Solutions, experts in powering course materials management and delivery for higher education institutions, has been selected with Westwood College to present at this year’s CAPPS Annual Conference. Attendees will gain a first-hand look at the way institutions approach standardization in course materials as a means to create efficiencies, deliver a great student experience, achieve cost savings, and more.

Sue Wierenga, CIO of Westwood College, will join Ambassador’s Bruce Schneider, Director of Business Engineering, to explore standardization strategies that drive operational and financial success. Discussion will focus on schools’ ongoing efforts to reduce the cost of course materials for students, including booklist management and content partnerships.

“Standardization allows schools to efficiently and effectively get the right materials into students hands at the right price, enabling them to achieve their curriculum management goals from both an academic and financial standpoint,” said Schneider. “We are excited to deliver an encore presentation of this session with Sue, which was very well received at the APSCU Annual Convention this summer, and we are looking forward to some terrific collaboration with attendees at CAPPS.”

Standardizing Curriculum From a School Perspective” is scheduled to take place on Friday, October 11th at 10:00 a.m. Ambassador is also exhibiting at the event in booth #38, where its team will be talking to schools about simplifying the adoption, delivery and management of all student course materials.
