On January 15th Clint Lalonde from BC Campus visited VIU to talk about the BCcampus Open Textbook Project.

Clint was joined by Jessie Key, one of three BC Campus Faculty Fellows; post-secondary educators who have been tasked with researching, mentoring and performing outreach on Open Textbooks. This session was aimed at faculty who were interested in integrating learning technologies, especially open educational resources into their teaching and learning practices.
