Executive summary

Kwantlen Polytechnic University is a founding member of the OERu. In 2015 KPU intends to move forward its institutional flexible learning and open studies strategy. A team of faculty and staff will begin to provide open education opportunities at KPU through a coordinated set training, design and course development activities. In addition, KPU will be exploring complementary activities associated with prior learning assessment and recognition (PLAR) and open badging, as components of its institutional open education plan. Outputs of institutional activities will result in two new open courses in 2015-16 that can be put forward as KPU’s contribution to the OERu network.

2015 Objectives

  • Course specification, design, and development
  • Capacity building among KPU faculty and staff for open design and development practices
  • Building technical capacity for support of KPU open studies and OERu activities using MediaWiki (Wikieducator), Word Press and KPU’s Moodle and Mahara installation
  • Exploration of Open Badge Factory as a software platform for bade creation, issuing and authentication
  • Networking with OERu partners to adopt and share innovative practices and approaches to open design, delivery and assessment
