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.

This presentation will describes the outcome of an ongoing, self-sustaining project at Athabasca University that has produced significant financial savings for the institution, maintained equivalent student learning outcomes and persistence rates, and at the same time enhanced aspects of the learning experience for students in introductory financial accounting. Broadly-applicable conclusions about the factors encouraging OER adoption can be drawn from the success of the project to date. These illuminate organizational issues that impede the adoption of OER and how the rate of OER adoption in the academy could be increased.

David Annand, EdD, MBA, CPA, CA is a Professor of Accounting in the Faculty of Business. His research interests include the study and development of open education resources, and the organization of online- and distance-based universities.
