Douglas to develop ZTC for General Business Certificate

January 11, 2021

Douglas College has announced that it is developing a Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC) program for its General Business Certificate. With support from BCcampus, Douglas will be developing open educational resources (OERs) for four courses that will contain inclusive and diverse stories, examples, and case studies. “Equally important is that, not only will students benefit from reducing textbook costs, but it will also allow us to employ them in the development of OER,” said Debra Flewelling, open education and emerging technologies librarian, “showcasing how students can be active participants in an open education framework.” BCcampus (BC)
