BCcampus (2021) Expression of interest: development of open courses Victoria, BC
BCcampus is offering grants of up to $8,000 to B.C. applicants who have developed, adapted, or adopted an open textbook in their B.C. Open Textbook Collection to develop a new open course, or adapt an existing open course, that accompanies the textbook.
This expression of interest is for individuals, groups, or institutions and their representatives (e.g., faculty members, articulation committees, teaching and learning centres, libraries, and OER working groups) in B.C. and the Yukon that are interested in developing or adapting open courses aligned with open textbooks available in the B.C. Open Textbook Collection.
Here’s a suggestion: if you have not already done so, use my open textbook, Teaching in a Digital Age, which received a five star review from the Association of American Teachers, as a basis for open courses either for teachers in k-12 schools or for instructors in post-secondary education. This should qualify you for a grant.
Of course, proposals for the use of the many other books in the BCcampus collection will also be welcome.
However, hurry: the deadline for submissions is September 20, 2021. For more details, click here
