Dr. Peter Arthur, member of the Faculty of Education and Director of the Centre for Teaching and Learning, will lead the following session during Open Access Week on UBC’s Okanagan campus.

All faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend.

Session Description:

Open educational resources are digital educational materials that are freely shared by teachers, students and lifelong learners. For example faculty have access to over 7 million free shareable media files from Wikimedia Commons, 69 million free sharable photos at Flickr (Creative Commons subset), 25 thousand digital learning objects at MERLOT and MIT has 1800 of its courses free and online. This session will focus on how faculty may leverage and share open educational resources to enhance learning environments. In addition participants will explore how open education contributes to the open access movement.
