The Launch of B.C.’s ABE ZTC Project (Plus What’s Next!)

*Note: This session has passed. Please view the recording and resources below. 

B.C. has launched a first-of-its-kind program: a free-tuition and zero-textbook-cost (ZTC) program for adult basic education (ABE). More than 30 open educational resources (OER) have been created and adapted over the past three and a half years to support learners in this program. In this webinar you’ll hear about the project, the resources created, and the lessons learned and help us celebrate the launch of the ABE ZTC Project. But that’s not all! We will also share some upcoming additions to this program that are in the works.

This webinar will consist of PowerPoint presentations followed by time for a question-and-answer period. Please bring any questions you might have about the ABE ZTC Project!
