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.

Based on the experiences of the OpenStax Institutional Partner Program and partnering schools, this workshop will provide participants with a strategic plan outline and strategies to greatly increase faculty use of OER on their campuses. Through group and individual activities, participants will learn the criteria for writing and implementing effective strategies, how to track the effectiveness of each strategy, how to time strategies so they have the most impact, and how to pull it all together to create into an effective plan.

As managing director, Daniel guides OpenStax in saving students across the country millions of dollars. He has dedicated the past ten years of his life to developing education startups from conception to culmination, with specialties in open education, content development, ed-tech, consumer intelligence, management, and quality assurance.
