Eight faculty members have been awarded grants through TRU’s Strategic Initiative Fund (SIF) to create new open education resources.

When these resources are ready for use in the summer of 2019, they will be stored online and available on BC Campus, a repository of academic resource materials that are free to use, have been peer reviewed, rigorously tested and have received the appropriate copyright approvals. Non-

TRU students and faculty will also have free access to the materials.

The eight faculty members were interviewed and featured on the Inside TRU Blog. Visit InsideTRU for details!


BCcampus blog – What students like (and dislike) about OER

Open Learning Faculty Member, Steven Earle, was recently featured on the BCcampus website for his project on What students like (and dislike) about OER.


The goal of the project described here is to find out how students use their open texts and what they like and dislike about them. The overall objective is to seek strategies for designing open texts that are better suited to meet the learning needs of students.
