Building better OER
To make it easier for you to create, adapt, and share open educational resources (OER), we’ve developed a collection of toolkits to guide you through the process. We have toolkits to help students advocate and promote the adoption of open textbooks and other OER. Instructors can learn how to choose an open textbook, adopt it for the classroom, modify it to meet your intended learning outcomes, or create one to share your knowledge and enable a better learning experience with your students. Trades instructors can find a snapshot of OER adoption practices completed by other B.C. trades instructors, and everyone can find ways to make a truly open and accessible textbook (the accessibility toolkit is available in English and French.)
To improve accessibility for your open textbooks, we’ve collaborated with the Centre for Accessible Post-secondary Education Resources BC (CAPER-BC) and Camosun College to provide toolkits that focus on creating content that is accessible to students and instructors who cannot use conventional print materials.
Check out these toolkits designed to help you thrive and grow within an open learning environment.
