This space is a collaborative working space for the BC Open Education Librarians (BCOEL) group, a group of BC post-secondary librarians interested in OER and informally meeting to discover and share ways we can support the use of quality OER by faculty and students.
The BCOEL group met initially in December 2013, after a few librarians thought it would helpful to meet and share ideas, tools, and strategies on OER projects in support of faculty. The group has since met monthly via teleconference with the coordination and assistance of BCcampus.ca (See the BCcampus OpenEd site and BC Open Textbook project for more general info on BC and OER happenings and info on the BC Open Textbook project.)
The BCOEL group official web space where we share our work is hosted here: bcoel.ca.
The twitter hashtag has changed from #bcoer to #bcoel.
