Open Education

Open education is a philosophy about the ways in which people should produce, share, and build on knowledge. Proponents of open education believe everyone in the world should have access to high-quality educational experiences and resources and work to eliminate barriers to this goal.

KPU supports a wide range of open educational practices, including the creation, adaptation, and adoption of open educational resources (OER) as part of our Zero Textbook Cost initiative, the design and implementation of renewable assignments and other forms of open pedagogy, and training and support for open education research. These initiatives are led by the Associate Vice Provost, Open Education and guided by the Open Education Working Group.
