Join us in Melbourne or online for a keynote from Dr Rajiv Jhanghiani (Canada) and a panel exploring the quality, cost, flexibility and equity drivers for open textbooks.
RSVP’s are now open via Eventbrite. We need your RSVP details for catering (if coming in person) and to email you the link to the livestream and/or recording (if attending virtually.)
We are delighted to hear from international expert Dr. Rajiv Jhanghiani who is the Associate Vice Provost, Open Education at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. His research and practice focuses on open education, student-centered pedagogies, and the scholarship of teaching and learning. Rajiv has co-authored three open textbooks in Psychology and led text-book ‘sprints’ to rapidly author new open textbook content including quiz-banks and supplementary resources.
Rajiv is a passionate advocate for the adoption of open educational practices in Canada and worldwide to support the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and spoke at the United Nations on the topic in 2019. He has been invited to provide his perspective as part of CRADLE’s research project, led by Sarah Lambert, on the potential of open textbooks as social justice initiatives in Australia.
