Open education can be considered disruptive and if fully embraced open education can be transformational for the institution and the communities they serve. Like any change that is worthwhile the journey to transformation is a challenge. Every institution is different, and every institution faces different obstacles and barriers along the path to transformation.  

It takes a team to navigate an open education initiative and in June 2019 BC Campus announced that they would invest in two regional representatives to advise and support open education initiatives in the northern and interior institutions of British Columbia. In October Carolee Clyne (North) and Ross McKerlich (Interior) were hired.

In this 30-minute interactive session hear stories from institutions from the northern and interior regions of British Columbia, learn about common barriers to open education in institutions regardless of what size or where they are located, and also how to get around these barriers together so that lives and communities can be transformed. The overall learning goal is to provide participants with valuable insight on possible solutions suitable to their own community needs for transformation. Through a combination of small group and large group discussion, participants will be actively involved in their learning.
