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.

Feedback form is now closed.
Over the past two years with the support of Open School BC, Camosun College has developed 23 open textbooks and a number of ancillary resources for Trades training. The digital distribution of open textbooks allow for a seamless integration of multimedia learning assets which can enrich both teaching and learning.

At Camosun we have developed several interactive “games” to allow students to practice assembling scaffolding and to use and read several measurement devices. 

In this workshop Camosun’s development team will introduce participants to some of the concepts utilized in designing and developing these assets. Participants will get hands-on experience in an interactive workshop, in which they will demonstrate how to build additional exercises for a Multimeter learning asset.  Individuals who the appropriate computer resources will be able to build their own activities both in and after the workshop. As well, we will present on how Camosun is maximizing the use of open resources for trades training.  We will also look at the interdisciplinary approach we have taken at our institutions which involves faculty, students, staff and external partnerships.
