Douglas College champions OER adoption for students, so much so that one of the initiatives in its 2020 – 2025 Strategic Plan is to expand the availability of OERs at the College. This will reduce costs for textbooks and related resources, making students’ education more affordable and accessible.
To lead the way, our Open Douglas working group (a grassroots group comprised of faculty, administrators and staff) is now bolstered by the OER Strategic Initiative Team who will work on attaining our goals, including developing a strategic plan for OER at Douglas.
Listen to what Thor Borgford, our Vice President, Academic, and Provost, has to say about Open Educational Resources.
If you have questions about OERs or their adoption, please contact Debra Flewelling, Open Education Librarian and Chair of Open Douglas.
