Job Opportunities at the Taylor Institute

Open Education Resources Research Assistant

The development, adoption and adaptation of Open Educational Resources (OERs) is emerging in Alberta largely because of the contributions of motivated individuals and groups who are supported by government funding. At the University of Calgary, a cross-functional group including faculty members active in OER development, students, educational developers, librarians, and the UCalgary bookstore have identified a need to develop an integrated institutional network for communicating, resourcing and advocating for OERs.

This position entails advising a team of undergraduate and graduate students on how to replace course textbooks and learning material resources with Open Educational Resources.

Eligibility: This opportunity is open to full-time graduate students registered at the University of Calgary.

Term: The OER Research Assistant position will begin on August 1, 2017 and will expire on June 30, 2018.
