French-Language OER in Québec: Challenges and Opportunities

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A recent report by Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) indicates that only 15% of French-language institutions mentioned any involvement in OER compared to 40% of English-language institutions in Canada.

In the primarily French-speaking province of Québec, OER development in higher education is relatively limited but there have been a number of initiatives recently to address the issue.

This lightning talk will discuss some of the challenges facing OER development in Québec, demonstrating OER advocacy in another language is so much more than just direct translations of resources, but requires significant time and efforts tailoring to the local context.

As well, two OER initiatives in the province will be highlighted: a joint project of 4 universities on the development of high-quality OER, as well as a network of OER advocates on the dissemination and sharing of knowledge and expertise.
