Adopting Open Textbooks Workshop

February 26, 2013 @ 5:00 pm – 11:30 pm

Location: Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Richmond Campus (Melville Centre for Dialogue)

There is a lot of buzz about open textbooks and the financial benefits to our students. However, many conversations and much learning needs to happen between now and realizing that goal. This workshop will take the first steps in that direction. Together we will explore:

  • options for finding, selecting, and building on existing open educational resources (OER)
  • processes for creative commons licensing
  • individual and institutional changes in practice, and
  • ideas for adoption and advocacy.

Register online before February 22; space is limited so we may need to close down registration before that date. Full details about the workshop are posted at Opening Education.
