Open Education

Open education is a philosophy about the way 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 they work to eliminate barriers to this goal. At KPU, open education is supported through the creation, adaptation, and adoption of open textbooks and other open educational resources (OER) as part of our Zero Textbook Cost initiative, support for open pedagogy, and the use of open-source educational technology.
