Open UBC Week: An Overview of Open Learning Technologies at UBC

Name: An Overview of Open Learning Technologies at UBC

Date: Wednesday, October 31

Time: 1:30pm – 2:20pm

Location: Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, Lillooet Room

Description: Over the last several years, the Centre for Teaching, Learning & Technology (CTLT) at UBC has developed open learning technologies that support e-Portfolios, course blogs, communities of practice, classroom backchannels and microblogging, open educational resource (OER) development, peer evaluation, and other learning and web-publishing needs. These open tools support online and blended learning inside and outside of classroom contexts; allow UBC to investigate how new technologies may be incorporated into learning environments in innovative and sustainable ways; and facilitate communication, engagement, collaboration and knowledge transfer. This session will provide an overview of the open tools and discuss how they are used at UBC to enhance active learning.
