New collaboration sees creation of Open Education Alberta

August 14, 2020
A new collaboration called Open Education Alberta seeks to provide students and instructors with access to free digital learning materials. The platform has been in the works for two years and is the product of a collaboration between postsecondary institutions across the province, including the University of Alberta Libraries, Mount Royal University, MacEwan University, the University of Calgary, University of Lethbridge, and Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. “Faculty [members] are already looking at ways to revisit how they're going to deliver their courses for the fall," said project co-lead and MRU librarian Cari Merkley, “and OERs might solve some of the problems that they're encountering in terms of student access to learning materials.”  Folio  (AB)
