Opening the Classroom: Publishing Open Educational Resources (preconference)
As the use of OERs continues to grow throughout the academy, this preconference will address the growing need for distinctive practices for developing, supporting, and hosting OERs as part of library publishing. The morning will consist of a hands-on textbook publishing workshop (planned in collaboration with the Open Textbook Network), and the afternoon will include panels and presentations (planned in collaboration with BCcampus).
BCcampus is a sponsor for the Library Publishing Forum (preconference day).
Morning workshop: US$25 registration fee (limit 50 participants, includes breakfast and AM coffee/snack break)
Afternoon mini-conference: US$10 registration fee (limit 100 participants, includes PM coffee/snack break)
Registration for the morning and afternoon sessions is separate; attendees can register for just one session or both. The registration deadline is April 19.
Co-sponsors: BCcampus and Open Textbook Network
