The BC Open Education Team welcomes applications for the 2017- 2018 Open Education Advocacy and Research Fellowships.
BCcampus is in the process of identifying post-secondary faculty in British Columbia for three 1-year Open Education Advocacy and Research Fellowships.
Successful candidates will help raise awareness of open educational practices through advocacy and will work with the Senior Open Education Advocacy and Research Fellow to conduct, present, and publish research on open educational practices (including, for example, the adoption of open textbooks) at BC institutions.
The Fellows will receive mentorship in OER advocacy and research along with funding to attend the Open Textbook Summit (May 2017), the Open Education Conference (November 2017), and one articulation committee meeting in their discipline. The overall funding support for Fellows will be approximately $3,500, to cover the cost of conference and meeting fees.
Note: BC faculty who currently hold an OER Research Fellowship with the Open Education Group at Brigham Young University are not eligible to apply for a 2017 OEAR Fellowship.
We are looking for academic leaders who are committed to improving the student learning experience through the use of OER and Open Educational Practices and who are eager to share their experiences with colleagues and peers across institutions
