BC Open Textbook Summit 2017 has ended

BCcampus is pleased to, once again, host the Open Textbook Summit. This year’s event will take place May 24-25 at SFU Harbour Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada).

The Open Textbook Summit brings together leaders in the Open Textbook field, from faculty who are reviewing, adopting and developing Open Textbooks, to student advocates, librarians, institutional administrators, government officials, and policy staff. Together, we look at what other institutions are doing to move the Open Textbook agenda forward, share experiences about what has worked well and what could be improved, and look ahead to explore how open pedagogy can influence Open Textbook development to enhance teaching and learning.

The Rebus Community is an effort to build a collaborative model for open textbook publishing. As of May, 2017 we are working on a dozen Open Textbook projects, with faculty and staff from more than 30 institutions. We’ll talk about where we’re at, what we’ve learned, where we’re going and how to get involved. (With invited guests from Rebus Community projects and partners TBD.)

Hugh McGuire has been building tools and communities that bring books onto the web for a decade. He is the co-founder of the Rebus Foundation, founder of Pressbooks, LibriVox, Pressbooks, and iambik. You can find him @hughmcguire.
