Faculty and Students working together to create OER: the Open Case Studies Project at UBC
Presenter: Christina Hendricks, University of British Columbia
Originally recorded: Feb 22, 2017
This is #2 in a series of webinars – Open Education Stories from across B.C.
The Open Case Studies project at the University of British Columbia brings together faculty and students to create and edit case studies as open educational resources. We have started by focusing on courses that have to do with sustainability because there are many courses across our campus that address issues in sustainability in some way and that use case studies to do so.
However, we are interested in any courses that use case studies and that want to make them open and available for others to revise and reuse. We have a small number of case studies so far, but hope the numbers will grow in the coming years as more faculty and students become involved. So far all of our cases are from courses at UBC, but we are investigating ways to include contributions from people around BC or beyond. Christina Hendricks, the lead faculty member on the project, will discuss how the project has worked so far, how courses have involved students in reading, adding to, or creating case studies, and how others can get involved.
Christina Hendricks is a Professor of Teaching in Philosophy at the University of British Columbia-Vancouver, who is also an advocate for open education generally, including the use and creation of open textbooks and other open educational resources. From 2014-2015 she was a Faculty Fellow with the BCcampus Open Textbook project, and from 2015-2017 she was an OER Research Fellow with the Open Education Group.
