The Office of the Provost and Vice-President Academic and UBC Okanagan Library are pleased to announce the 2020/21 OER Grant-funded projects as part of our ongoing commitment to flexible and open learning.
The UBC Okanagan Open Educational Resources Grant pilot program provides funding and support for UBC Okanagan faculty to adapt or create open educational resources (OER). OERs are free teaching and learning materials available to students with an open license that allows for their reuse, revision, and redistribution. Through this funding, a wide range of OERs are being developed that will provide UBC Okanagan students with accessible education resources that will improve their learning experience and potentially offer significant cost savings.
Funded projects include open textbooks, open lab manuals and open question banks. Visit provost.ok.ubc.ca/awards-funding/oer for a full list of funded projects or to learn more about OER.
Congratulations to all 2020/21 funded projects!
