Subtitle: A BCcampus Open Education advocacy guide for student leaders

Authors: Daniel Munro, Jenna Omassi, and Brady Yano

Book Description: For students, the high cost of educational resources and textbooks can be a serious obstacle to the accessibility and affordability of a post-secondary education. For instructors, traditional educational resources may also present a barrier to innovation in teaching and curriculum design. Fortunately, open educational resources (OER) provide a viable solution to both these issues.
