These Simulator Laboratory Worksheets are open educational resources that align with BCIT’s Power Engineering Thermodynamics and Thermal Power Plant Simulator courses.
Open educational resources (OER) are defined as “teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others.” (Hewlett Foundation).
Funding for this project was provided through an OER Grant from the B.C. Open Textbook Project. The B.C. Open Textbook Project began in 2012 with the goal of making post-secondary education in British Columbia more accessible by reducing student cost through the use of openly licensed textbooks and other OER. The B.C. Open Textbook Project is administered by BCcampus and funded by the British Columbia Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training and the Hewlett Foundation.
The BCcampus Writing Guidelines for Style and Tone were referenced during the copy editing and proof reading phases of this project and the Open Textbooks Theme by Brad Payne was used in producing the book.
