Limited Capacity seats available

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

Two years ago, the Psychology Department at Kwantlen Polytechnic University was neither a leader nor even a follower in the open education movement. Today, we lead our institution in terms of number of sections taught with open textbooks. We have conducted research into the efficacy of open vs. traditional textbooks.

We have created an Open Education Resources committee that has authored a Moodle-based OER. We have participated in the creation of open educational resources including test banks, textbooks, wikis, and courses.

How did we do this? Learn from the faculty that made it happen in this informative panel discussion that will share with you strategies, lessons learned, and practical advice for opening your department.
