Open educational resources and open textbooks have been a focus of many conversations in the open community for the past few years, but the opportunity is much broader, as well all know.

At BCIT we are thinking about how to embed open practices along with open resources at the core of our health education programs. One approach we are pursuing is the use of an open educational clinical information system (EdCIS) That would be connected to our courses, to our simulations and labs, and would be available to students throughout their health science programs at BCIT.

The adaptation of an existing open source EdCIS provides a unique opportunity for BCIT to build capacity and to develop an open practice model that will enable inter-professional collaboration. Student learning will be enhanced through longitudinal interactions, inter-professional collaborations and a constructivist paradigm.

Using open source EdCIS technology would also allow us to build a larger case-study network and datasets with colleagues across Canada, as well as provide an open source EdCIS for use by a global community of practice.
