Guides and Toolkits
Educators collaborating with colleagues – at individual institutions, through interest groups, and at conferences – is invaluable for adoption, adaptation, and creation efforts with open textbooks. Make sure to source like-minded educators and connect with early adopters of OER to facilitate movement into open textbooks. However, step-by-step guides and workflow toolkits are also key supports.
eCampusOntario’s partner, BCcampus created guides to assist educators’ adaptation and authoring of open textbooks. Its toolkits address accessibility and spearheading an OER policy at an institutional level.
