The BCcampus Award for Excellence in Open Education recognizes outstanding contributions to the open education movement in British Columbia. These contributions may include significant leadership, open educational resources (OER) development, research, or advocacy by faculty, students, support staff, or administrators at post-secondary institutions in B.C. or others who support the post-secondary system in B.C. Individuals or teams may be recognized. (See past award recipients.)

Anyone may propose a nomination, but individuals may not self-nominate. Individual award nominations are made in writing via the online form (see below). The open education team at BCcampus adjudicates the award throughout the year. Award winners will receive a certificate of recognition and be profiled on the BCcampus website.
