Post-secondary learners come from a diverse range of backgrounds, experiences, and abilities, and every one of them deserves a high quality education as they pursue their goals and dreams.
Open Educational Resources enhance accessibility at post-secondary institutions because they invite faculty and students to work together. OERs promote a discussion of specific teaching and learning needs, and the flexibility of open licences ensures that students can engage with learning material that is impactful, timely, and resonant.
Take a look at BCcampus’s Accessibility Toolkit throughout your open journey. It provides helpful tips in making your OER more accessible. Whether you’re making small or large-scale changes, accessibility is important to consider as you strive to provide the best possible learning experiences for your students.
