eCampus Ontario have begun a similar process and it is our intention to collaborate with ON to co-develop resources in alignment with BC standards
Governance groups to be determined that provide sector representation.
Develop entire suite of freely available resources including textbooks, test banks, homework assignments and other ancillary resources to replace costly commercial educational resources in Health education programs.
Out of scope:
Eliminate textbook and learning resource costs throughout entire programs of study in Health.
Reduce education costs, increase student access, and incentivize students to pursue programs that meet provincial labour market and health and human resource needs
Impact more than 100,000 students in Health programs
The target audience for the ZTC curriculum development is faculty and staff.
Target audience includes approximately 100,000 students in Health related programs.
