A Colloquium Exploring Re-Use of Open Resources to Improve Quality and Access

Blackburn Room, 4th Floor, Robarts Library
Are you curious about the potential of open textbooks to positively impact both curriculum design and student learning?
Join us for an opportunity to hear about recent initiatives that illuminate the growing movement toward use of open educational resources in higher education.
This event will showcase the findings of a recent University of Guelph study exploring the impact of cost and access to course materials on student success. In addition, University of Toronto instructors, librarians, staff and graduate students who have had first hand experience in the creation and adaptation of open textbooks will share their strategies and insights.
Open Textbooks: Open Minds is hosted by the University of Toronto Libraries and Information Technology Services - Online Learning Strategies in celebration of Open Education Week 2019 and will feature projects recently funded by eCampusOntario. Faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, librarians, and staff from all three campuses at University of Toronto and beyond are welcome to attend.
