  • 12. What are OER? “Open Educational Resources (OERs) are any type of educational materials that are in the public domain or introduced with an open license. The nature of these open materials means that anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt and re-share them.” UNESCO http://www.unesco.org/new/en/communication-and-information/access-to-knowledge/open-educationalresources/what-are-open-educational-resources-oers/ Page | 12

  • 25. 2 Phase Two: Adapt (Sept 2013-Sept 2014 underway) Type 2: Existing Introduction to Psychology The faculty who reviewed this text felt that it needed to be adapted to reflect a Canadian context, that it required the addition of a chapter on stress, health, and coping, and an overview of all the major psychological perspectives in the first chapter of the text. The BC Open Textbook project will fund a subject matter expert $7500 to complete this work. Technical support and editing services will be provided. Introduction to Sociology This book received a good overall rating, however the faculty who reviewed it felt that it required adaptation to reflect a Canadian context and the insertion of content about Feminist Theory. The BC Open Textbook project will fund a subject matter expert $7500 to complete this work. Technical support and editing services will be provided. Introduction to Chemistry Reviewers of this text found it was missing content about Kinetic-Molecular Theory and Thermodynamics. In addition it is lacking a glossary. The BC Open Textbook project will fund a subject matter expert $5000 to add the additional content and create a glossary. 25 Page |
