I picked this selfie of me in a mask because the pandemic has truly been a catalyst for me to explore new technologies. And I am totally going to borrow this challenge for one of my courses! Much like the activity I have designed it is a fun way for learners to build community and share perspectives of digital literacies and learning in a digital world!

@alenabuis I see that you are an Art Educator. With the help from TRU we remixed an OER-enabled 1st year course called "Art Appreciation and Techniques" It is assembled to comprise three micro-courses:
1) Artistic process and visual language - course.oeru.org/art101/
2) Artistic media and architecture - course.oeru.org/art102/
3) Art in our world - course.oeru.org/art103/

We're getting close to launching this open course soon - perhaps your college is interested in joining?

@mackiwg this is awesome! I will check it out! I am in the process of working on an open textbook for us to use as well.

@alenabuis Look forward to your open textbook joining the global inventory. The BCcampus open text initiative is an inspiring exemplar for OER.

@mackiwg Thank you! I’m hoping to have it ready for class in January!

@alenabuis Plenty of time 😂 The beauty of open is the freedom for incremental and continuous improvement. Good luck!
