Designing Open Resources, Strategies, and Approaches 

Date: February 27th, 12 :00 - 1:00 pm 
Time: 12:00 - 1:00 pm 
Location: Collaborate Virtual Room 

Students are advocates and supporters of open education, creating, adapting and sharing resources, using open technologies and getting involved in projects to build awareness among their peers. In this webinar, we will be bringing together students from across the BC Post Secondary System who are supporting open education projects and together we’ll explore what we can learn as contributors to these projects. We’ll also explore varied practices and approaches for creating well-designed, accessible and open content. 

By attending this webinar you will learn and discuss: 

    * How students in BC are supporting Open Education projects. 
    * How open education supports learning 
    * Ways of designing and developing content using Universal Design for Learning (UDL) that is accessible and focused on the user experiences. 
    * Approaches to making content open, findable and re-usable.
