Representing Open Education Work in Reappointment, Tenure and Promotion Processes

Event Date & Time

  • July 12, 2023
    10:00 am - 11:30 am

Event Description

Open pedagogies and resources are enabling faculty to reduce barriers to learning by opening their classrooms, developing new educational resources, and contributing their efforts to public knowledge. When an instructor creates open educational resources or opens their educational practices, they are, in effect, publishing their teaching. Tenure and promotion committees are starting to recognize these efforts and, since 2016, the UBC Senior Appointments Committee (SAC) Guide to Reappointment, Promotion and Tenure Procedures at UBC (pdf) included contributions to open educational resources and repositories as a possible criteria for evidence of educational leadership for those instructors in UBC’s educational leadership stream.

Join us for a POSE round table discussion with UBC faculty members and open education leaders who will discuss their experiences, including challenges and successes, in representing their open education work for tenure and promotion. Learn how these instructors are documenting, measuring impact, and promoting their open educational efforts.
