OER Champions

UBC Vancouver Alma Mater Society, the VP Academic and Provost, CTLT, and the UBC Library would like to congratulate the following faculty and staff for their nominations as UBC Open Education Resource Champions. An open education champion is an individual who has made a significant contribution to the use of open educational resources (OER) at UBC Vancouver. 

OER have positive benefits on the student experience by lowering access barriers and reducing student costs for learning materials. They also enable instructors to modify, edit, or adapt high-quality resources to fit their individual teaching goals in order to provide meaningful, contextualized materials for their students. 

The Alma Mater Society (AMS), alongside other University sponsors, is excited to announce that on November 30th, 2022, we will be hosting an event to honour those who work in Open Education at UBC. The call is now open for students and other members of the UBC community to nominate OER Champions — the faculty, staff, and administrators who dedicate their time to fostering accessible education at UBC — to be recognized and celebrated at this event.
