TED Studies, created in collaboration with Wiley, are curated video collections – supplemented by rich educational materials – for students, educators and self-guided learners. In Covering World News, media executives, journalists and authors explore how our ability to understand and participate in a global society is helped or hindered by Western media coverage of world events. As technology and a tough economy change the way mainstream media companies do business, will international news be an albatross or an asset?

OER Student Advocate Toolkit
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This toolkit was created by OER student leaders in the CCC and CSU systems. The toolkit's purpose is to motivate students to get involved in OER advocacy and the Open Education movement, as well as make it known that students can make a difference in their education. Education costs can be cut to a fraction of the price with OER, which would allow for more students to be able to access knowledge and higher education. While this toolkit contains some examples and suggestions specific to California institutions, it can still be helpful for all college students. Thanks to the Michelson 20MM Foundation's financial support students were paid for their work and contributions in creating this document, as well as presenting at conferences.

We Are All Crew – Resident Arts
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

“There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth, we are all crew.”

Marshall McLuhan, “At the Moment of Sputnik” in Journal of Communication Issue 24 (Winter 1974) © Estate of Marshall McLuhan, with permission.

This artist book is an extension of the The Art for Science Mural project, located in Columbia, Missouri and funded by the 2018 Art for Science Rising initiative of the Union of Concerned Scientists. The book consists of a recreation of the mural design in coloring book format, and a workbook which can be used to create an asset map of a given locale’s sustainable resources so that readers can make conscious choices about how they use the assets within a given community. It is meant to be an educational and information gathering tool that is open source (with a copyleft license) and where the collection of this information is decentralized.

The McLuhan quote suggests we must all do the work, and be responsible, in the care for our one and only home. One way that this work can be done is collating and sharing information about the available sustainable resources in a given area.

These two projects, the mural and artist book, were made possible through the sponsorship of Science Rising and the Union of Concerned Scientists.
