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.

Open pedagogy has multiple meanings and involves many different kinds of practices. In this session we will involve participants in a discussion of open pedagogy as well as showcase three different OER and open pedagogy projects. Christina Hendricks (UBC) will discuss the Open Case Studies project, which collects case studies written by professors and students, that are openly licensed for anyone to revise and reuse. Marianne Gianacopoulos (Langara) will share her experiences with international students in Post Degree Diploma programs, who are moving past the traditional textbook and Learning Management System to build skills that will serve them beyond the classroom walls. Michael Dabrowski (Athabasca) will discuss a project involving a collaboration between 6 Western Canadian Universities, including professors, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as members of the Canadian Hispanic community, to engage in open collaborative pedagogy/andragogy to take students beyond the core subject matter of courses.
