KPU Open Studies
Open Education "...is the simple and powerful idea that the world’s knowledge is a public good and that technology in general and the Web, in particular, provide an extraordinary opportunity for everyone to share, use, and reuse knowledge."
—The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation
In the News:
Open Studies is a group of KPU instructors, administrators, learning specialists and librarians that stay informed about trends in open education and encourage the use of open practices in teaching and research. Representatives from KPU Open Studies act as liaisons to key partnerships involving open educational resources such as the BC Campus Open Textbook project, and the Open Education Resource universitas- an international network of institutions, including KPU, who strive to widen access to more affordable education through open education practices.
