Langara Open Education Grants

The open education movement dovetails with Langara’s mission to provide students with accessible, affordable, high-quality education.

From 2019-2023, Open Langara offered $1,500 grants to instructors interested in adapting or creating open educational resources (OER) or incorporating open educational practices (OEP) into their teaching.

Kaleidoscope Fund

Open education is captured in the College's Academic Plan 2025, Transformational Learning Experiences:

"Building on our extensive student-centred teaching experience, we interweave principles of universal design, open education, digital literacy, and continual learning on our pathway to academic success." 

The College's Kaleidoscope Fund offers seed money of up to $3,000 per project to support program development inspired by the Academic Plan 2025. Open Langara encourages faculty who are interested in initiating an open education projecct to apply for Kaleidoscope funding.
