Workshop on Open Education Resources and Teaching Technologies in Mathematics

  • Start Date: 07/26/2019
  • End Date: 07/28/2019

BIRS Institute, Alberta


This will be a meeting of experts and enthusiasts in undergraduate mathematics education, and open educational resources to exchange ideas, best practices, and teaching materials. The workshop will be a combination of presentations and hands-on activities focused on content creation and organization.


Specific activities could include:

• Curation and creation of WeBWorK problems.

• Curation of open educational resource textbooks in use at PIMS sites.

• Conversion of existing LATEXOER to PreTeXt (possibly with pre-workshop support from David Farmer at AIM).

• Creation of an Alberta version of the BCcampus Open Education repository.

• Development of Jupyter (Syzygy) as a teaching tool in calculus, linear algebra, and beyond.

• Planning the future of open textbooks: interactivity, portability, and personalization.



Among the outcomes above, the creation of a centralized OER repository for educators at Alberta universities is an especially desired outcome
