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.

Lumen Learning began working with institutions to replace traditional textbooks with OER in May 2011. More than five years later we have seen a many successes and failures, but more importantly, gained insight into the factors the have a measurable impact (good and bad) on student learning.

This presentation will present insights from along the road, and engage participants in exploring how we might expand and refine OER adoption to better support students and faculty to increase learning.
