Exploring Open textbooks for open education

David Porter, the CEO of eCampusOntario, will be speaking on the open movement in education during a special event at Robert Sutherland Hall on Wednesday, June 28.

Dr. Porter, a former  teacher, teacher-librarian, senior administrator, and first executive director of BCcampus, will also explore new developments such as the Open Textbook Initiative recently launched by eCampusOntario.

The Open and Affordable Course Materials Working Group at Queen’s is pleased to offer this opportunity to build on the campus-wide conversations, such as the instructor discussion groups held in April that brought together people across all disciplines to share experiences, views and ideas.

The Open and Affordable Course Materials Working Group’s mandate is to explore ways to facilitate the use of open and affordable course readings, textbooks and other learning objects in support of the learning outcomes and priorities of Queen’s academic programs.
