We offered a “Designing Accessible Open Educational Resources: A Hands-on Workshop” on Monday, Oct. 19, 2015. Read more about it here. The workshop filled up quickly and we collected names for indications of interest for future workshops.
As well, on Oct. 22, 2015, there was an evening event which featured a panel discussion,”Open for Collaboration: Is it Time for Canada to Implement A Unified Open Strategy for Higher Education?” at the SFU Harbour Centre.
Both of these events were organized and sponsored by BCcampusUBC LibrarySFU Library, the Public Knowledge Projectand the BC Research Libraries Group (BCRLG).
