Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Open Learning & Career Development has launched a new initiative called DalOpen. DalOpen will increase access to education by providing everyone with the opportunity to take select Dal courses fully online without being in a Dal program. Through the initiative, learners can take university-level courses without applying to a full program and learn on a schedule that works for them. Courses that are currently available include “Exploring Sustainability” and “Innovation: An Introduction to Design Thinking.” “We have a responsibility, as a civic university, to forge even stronger connections with the communities we serve and DalOpen is one way we can extend our reach and offer university learning to even more people,” said Kim Brooks, Dean of Dal’s Faculty of Management.
