Open at Scale

The Open at Scale initiative is a targeted approach to open educational resources (OER) development. The initiative focuses on the discovery and development of OER in specific disciplines. The Open at Scale approach originated in Ontario through conversations with passionate practitioners and leaders that saw an opportunity to pursue open education at a systemic level.  Introductory Business, introductory Nursing, and Trades were selected for the first iteration.
