All staff and students are welcome to attend Power Hour this Thursday, February 25th from noon until 1:30 with Dr. Rajiv Jhangiani in Student Council Chambers, SE2, 324.
Rajiv Jhangiani teaches psychology at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Vancouver, BC, where he conducts research on open education and the scholarship of teaching and learning. An author of two open textbooks, Dr. Jhangiani serves as an OER Research Fellow with the Open Education Group and Associate Editor of Psychology Learning and Teaching.
“Open educational practices” is a broad term that encompasses the creation and adoption of open textbooks and other open educational resources, open course development, and the use of “non-disposable assignments.” This presentation will make a case for why the move away from traditional (closed) practices is not only desirable but inevitable, and how students, faculty, institutions, and our communities all stand to benefit greatly from this transformation.
