Two Royal Roads programs go textbook-free

May 7, 2019

Two programs at Royal Roads University are going textbook-free. A release states that the university’s Master of Arts in Learning and Technology (MALAT) and Graduate Diploma in Learning and Technology (DipLAT) will enable students to access all of their learning materials through open educational resources, e-books, journal articles, and other free digital resources. “Our goal is to improve teaching and learning,” said Canada Research Chair George Veletsianos. “In these programs, textbooks are largely substituted by open educational resources. This allows us to not only reduce the costs that our students bear, but also allows us to modify materials to improve the way that we teach and the way that our students learn.” Royal Roads (BC)
