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 Royal Roads MA degree in Learning and Technology has been redesigned, and features openness and networked learning as key design principles. In this presentation we describe faculty experiences with designing and developing for, and in, an open learning environment. Faculty experiences described center around support requirements, tensions with designing/developing for openness, and concerns with providing safe learning environments. We conclude with recommendations for supporting faculty in designing for open learning spaces.
