Book Information

Book Description

This guide was originally created by BCcampus Open Education with the assistance of several BC faculty and staff who attended the 2016 Adoption Workshop Development Sprint. Since then, open education has evolved and in response this guide has been updated and expanded into four parts. The first sections address three distinct groups involved in open textbook adoption: instructors, post-secondary institutions, and students. The second–most comprehensive–section focuses on the operational aspects of adoption: surveying instructors about, tracking usage of, and reporting out about open textbooks (and other OER).  The last “Learn More” part provides additional adoption information.
