Proposal Abstract

With the support of CELT, the TRU Library, OL, and individual SD #73 science teachers, Christine Miller (from the Faculty of Education and Social Work) is in the process of adopting/adapting an open textbook for Adult Basic Education Provincial Level Biology. This textbook will fit the needs of both Provincial Level Biology (Human Biology) and Grade 12 Biology. This presentation will outline the research project informing this textbook development content and format, describe the scope of the project, highlight future goals, and then end with a short question and answer period. The presentation will hopefully inform the audience about the process of adopting/adapting open educational resources and provide helpful suggestions to faculty members hoping to incorporate OER into their own courses.

Statement

Adopting/Creating this open textbook has been an adventure. It is something new that I am trying and trial and error has definitely been a theme.
