Open Education

Open Langara.

The Open Education Advisory Committee (Open Langara) brings together interested parties from across campus to cultivate in-house expertise, network with the open education community, and steer the College’s participation in the open education movement.

Open Langara advocates for effective, low-barrier, and high-quality post-secondary education by supporting the adoption of open educational resources (OERs), open access, and open educational practices at Langara.
