    Dreams of Open Education Health and Nutrition Resources Dreams of Open Education Health and Nutrition Resources Presentation Transcript

    • Dreams of Open Education Health and Nutrition Resources • a few cautious steps from the Faculty of Land and Food Systems at UBC Cyprien Lomas Director, Learning Centre Faculty of Land and Food Systems
    • University of British Columbia • 40K students, • 11 schools & faculties • have centralised / decentralised support • central units pushing a simple solution (WebCT)
    • more about UBC... • centralised - decentralised collaboration • WebCT campus • Office of Learning Technologies is the owner (and champion) of WebCT
    • UBC is the birthplace of WebCT • WebCT used for everything... • quot;just webCT itquot; • recently switched over to Vista
    • UBC is the birthplace of WebCT • WebCT used for everything... • quot;just webCT itquot; • recently switched over to Vista
    • The Faculty Mindset • have WebCT for free... • perceived as ‘up to date’ to be using WebCT • anything else would take more effort - therefore http://blogs.landfood.ubc.ca/ubcfarm/ not likely
    • Faculty use the following WebCT tools • course content (powerpoints / PDFs) • discussion board • gradebook • quizzes
    • Faculty of Land & Food Systems • running Sakai & Moodle servers (quietly) • looking for people to test them out
    • Faculty of Land & Food Systems • shotgun strategy to changing culture • Creative Commons considerations • intellectual property
    • Faculty of Land & Food Systems • would talk about ‘open’ only with very close, trusted colleagues • used with Permission from Bjorn Thomson
    • Food and Nutrition • nutrition in Vietnam • what are the challenges? • approached to talk about potential
    • Came offering help • instructors open to sharing resources.. but • don’t have the vocabulary for what ‘open’ means http://internationalnutrition.landfood.ubc.ca/
    • started partnership • create site to share resources • Vista wouldn’t work :) • ended up going with Drupal
    • put together a framework • snuck in the word ‘open’ • prof asked colleagues to contribute materials
    • building the site... • course content was powerpoint & WebCT • scrutinised ownership of material in lecture slides
    • Phased this into a multi year plan. • suspect that the appropriate pace is closer to five years
    • Conclusions • very willing faculty • need to work on copyright awareness • much more work needed- mostly cultural http://www.landfood.ubc.ca
    • Next steps • holding the ‘open education’ conference in August 2009 •
    • • initiatives elsewhere in British Columbia
