Abstract

Since 2011, at least 46,000 students at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada students were exposed to a range of open educational practices, including 16,450 who enrolled in courses in which instructors replaced traditional textbooks with open or freely accessible resources (Engle, 2016). The catalysts for these practices are multifaceted:
Quality Resources for Students
Reduce Student Costs
University Policies
OER Funding Programs

This article discusses the benefits, challenges and potential of implementing OER at this institution.
