What is Openness in education? What is an Open Educational Resource (OER)? What is an Open Textbook?
The use of free, open resources and textbooks is quickly becoming a more plausible option thanks to initiatives such as BCcampus’s Open Textbook Project. Join Dr. Rajiv Jhangiani (KPU), Mary Burgess (BCcampus), and Amanda Coolidge (BCcampus) for a hands-on session that will explore these questions, discuss the advantages and disadvantages of adopting open textbooks, and provide a guide for how you can easily adapt these to suit your needs.
