Meeting Plan

Each meeting will have two standing items, a Roundtable and OER Rapid Innovation Grant Application Review.

  • Roundtable - This part of the meeting will encourage participants to share their work and engagement in open scholarship with the group.
  • OER Rapid Innovation Grant Application Review - The OER Rapid Innovation Grants provide funding for a wide range of activities and events that seek to engage the UBC community in increasing awareness and capacity for supporting and sustaining the adoption, adaption, and creation of OER at UBC V. The Open UBC Working Group will review all applications on an ongoing basis and make funding recommendations to the CTLT Academic Director.

The remainder of the meeting agendas will be planned based on the thematic coverage for the month.
