Manager, Open Education

Open educational resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research resources that are created with the intention of being freely available to users anywhere and are released with an open copyright license (or in the public domain) thus allowing the user to change, re-mix and share it. Lauri Aesoph, Open Education Manager with BCcampus, will draw on her experiences with the BC Open Textbook Project to describe the basics of OER and open textbooks, how faculty can adopt or change these resources, and some of the concerns about moving toward this new model. Questions are welcomed.
Lauri Aesoph supports the development and sharing of open educational resources in British Columbia. She project manages and leads workshops and webinars on the adoption, adaptation, and creation of open educational resources. She also provides technical and instructional design support for the B.C. Open Textbook Project as a Manager of Open Education. Lauri has worked in higher education for over 25 years, the last 12 with BCcampus. Prior to this, she spent 15 years writing books and articles, was an editor for an academic journal, and trained health care professionals in integrative medicine.
