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.

Hi there - I've been the Director of eLearning for Ryerson University for the past three years, and this year I am on a full secondment to the provincial government's Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (i.e. PSE and training) as a Special Advisor to the Deputy Minister on technology-enhanced learning. My interest in open education and open learning resources intersects with my original disciplinary interest and experience in ethics and social justice.
