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 Libretexts is an OER collaborative platform to enable dissemination and evaluation of new education developments and approaches, with an emphasis on data driven assessment of student learning and performance via a freely available online infrastructure. The Libretexts was recently expanded to 12 pseudo–independently operating and interwoven libraries covering 12 academic fields to function as a central platform for the construction and implementation of post-secondary OER textbooks. Since its inception eight years ago, the LibreTexts has been exponentially growing and is the most visited chemistry website in the world with 30 other participating campuses and over $3M of student textbook savings to date. This presentation addresses our recently expansion efforts and the next “next-gen” phase of development to integrate emerging education technologies into the content.
