Sexualized violence training: Open educational resources for safer campuses (E/SI)

April 24, 2023 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Stream: Ensuring Safety, Security and Well-being
Location: 521

Informed by advisory and working groups composed of faculty, staff, and students over the past three years, with representatives from large campuses as well as rural institutions, BCcampus has developed open educational resources (OER) to improve prevention and response to sexualized violence.This session will provide participants with an overview of the various classroom and online open resources available for faculty, staff and students. Participants will then take a deeper dive to learn and discuss more about the Safer Campuses for Everyone training (a 75-minute online, self-paced, non-facilitated training). The online course was developed to offer an alternative to synchronous learning and to provide a foundation for more advanced topics on sexual violence. We will share the process by which it was developed, from consultations with Indigenous groups and Trauma Informed Practice subject matter experts to feedback from faculty, students and those with lived experience, all essential components to creating an authentic and honest learning experience. Participants will learn about the design considerations for creating OER that could be adapted and implemented in virtually any institution in the Province and beyond. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the online course, discuss the modules topics as well as the design and development decisions made during an interactive and hands-on activity. Consideration will also be given to other topics related to safer campuses where institutional collaboration could be a solution in creating open and shared resources.
