Call for Grant Applications
Sponsored by the AVP, Educational Support and Innovation and BCcampus, the BCIT Open Education Working Group, the BCIT Library, and the Learning and Teaching Centre are providing small grants (up to $5,000) for the 2018/19 fiscal year to fund the development of Open Education Resources (OER) to integrate into your courses (may include open ancillary resources such as test banks, case studies, slide decks, etc.) or to redesign courses to incorporate open educational practices and open course materials.
The Open Education Working Group, the Library, and the LTC offer additional support to apply for the grants, plan and design your OER, find and adapt high-quality open educational resources, apply a Creative Commons licence (CC BY or CC BY-SA), and add newly created OER to the BCIT Open Repository.
