Improving access to education
Open is one of the core values (link to 1.0 About Us on BCcampus.ca) of BCcampus, and is present in everything we do. We are advocates and partners in open: inspiring, enabling, and implementing learning opportunities that use open educational resources (OER) to improve access for everyone.
While OER offers significant savings for students, especially through our growing collection of open textbooks (link to 1.1), there are benefits that go beyond the financial. Through the use of open pedagogy (link to 1.4) – teaching with OER – instructors can create engaging and meaningful lessons that provide experiential learning opportunities for their students: enabling success against learning outcomes and contributing back to the OER community.
