Open Session Limited to 40 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) is a regional undergraduate teaching university that serves a diverse student body across its four campuses. In recent years KPU has led BC post-secondary institutions through its embrace of open educational practices. This includes more than 100 course adoptions of open textbooks, faculty-led OER and ancillary resource development projects across a range of disciplines, institutional OERu membership and course development projects, events during open access and open education weeks, internal funding of OER-related projects, and language affirming open practices within the university strategic planning documents.

This practical session brings together administrators, faculty, librarians, and staff from KPU’s institutional Open Studies working group to share strategies, insights, and lessons that will prove useful to other institutions seeking to build a culture of Open.
