Donna Langille lives and works as an uninvited settler on the unceded traditional territory of the Syilx Okanagan peoples. She is the Community Engagement Librarian, as well as the subject liaison librarian for film studies, theatre, media studies, and the digital humanities at the University of British Columbia Okanagan (UBCO). She is co-chair of the campus wide Open Education Working Group and manages UBCO’s pilot OER Grant program. Her work includes providing support to students, staff, and faculty working on OER and building advocacy and awareness of OEP and OER at her institution.
In 2019, she obtained her Master of Information Studies from McGill University. Prior to this degree, she earned her Honours B.A. in English and Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies from Simon Fraser University. She also holds a diploma in Motion Picture Production from Capilano University. Her professional interests include open education, open and public scholarship, and the digital humanities.
For Donna’s capstone project, she is developing a strategy and service model for supporting and sustaining open education and open pedagogy across UBC. This project will look at how both the Okanagan and Vancouver campuses can work together to leverage resources and build out new services through collaboration.
