Subject: Instructional Samples Project

Hi everyone,
After many starts and stops and hiccups, I am happy to report that the Instructional Samples project has been completed!

Many moons ago, the Curriculum and Assessment team approached Open School BC about helping to develop and layout sample lessons written by teachers as exemplars for the redesigned curriculum. S was the original project manager and needs to take most of the credit for this project. You should have seen the uber organized files and spreadsheets he created before he left on his S.E. Asia trip. Amazing! And yes, leave me he did. But somehow I managed to see the project to fruition with much help from:

*   J and S stickhandling communication with the upper echelons
*   F for organizing the production crew
*   A for doing a brilliant job with layout (even in French!)

The instructional samples live on the Curriculum website<https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/instructional-samples?field_grade_range_value%5B%5D=10>.

Thanks again, team!
L

[L_OSBC_Announce] ELF

An item from Open School BC.

I invite you to share this with your friends and colleagues.

Thank you,
Michael Cochrane
Open School BC


Looking back while moving forward.

ELF – Early Learning Framework

As we continue to celebrate 100 years of distributed learning in British Columbia, Open School BC is pleased to introduce the new Early Learning Framework.

https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/education-training/early-learning/teach/early-learning-framework?keyword=Early&keyword=Learning&keyword=Framework

We are quite proud of the work we did, along with the Learning Division to help bring this to early childhood educators and parents across B.C.. The updated framework highlights all the changes in Early Learning in B.C. since the last framework was released in 2008. Although originally designed for professional development, this is a great resource for a new parent or a veteran instructor.

Open School BC was excited to have had many roles in various aspects of this development including document layout, graphics, illustrations, photography, organizing photo shoots, hosting and facilitating early planning sessions, managing the project as well as copy editing.

Open School BC celebrates the completion of the Heavy Mechanical Trades Apprenticeship Foundation/Level 1 learning resources

The sending of Line E to Crown Publications marks the end of a multi-year collaboration with Industry Training Authority (ITA) to develop Foundation/Level 1 learning resources for Heavy Mechanical Trades. Begun in 2012 with the revision of Lines A and C, the 10-line series of books comprises approximately 3,110 pages and 2,370 images (photos and technical drawings). OSBC worked closely with Heavy Mechanical instructors at several colleges and universities who acted as the writers and reviewers.

Thanks goes to the following: Solvig N. for her expertise with the initial stages of the project; the OSBC production team including Sharon B, Dennis E, Bev H, Nori S, and Farrah P; Janet B, and Sophia B-B for their supervisory support; Jennifer R, for her liaison with ITA; Shannon S for her administrative and art coordination support; Max Licht for the technical drawings; and Greg Aleknevicus and Keith Learmonth for editing. Special thanks to Dennis E as a key player in the development of these learning resources for his layout design, photography and technical drawing skills, and art coordination.

It is truly the end of an era.
