Addressing the Learning Needs of Out-of-School Children and Youths through the Expansion of Open Schooling

Rating
0.0 stars

At any one time, about 300 million children of school going age are not in school. Experience indicates that when schooling is disrupted, whether by a pandemic, a natural disaster or other reasons, not all children return to the classroom. In addition, most countries have growing numbers of young people who have not completed schooling, or not well enough to progress, and who find themselves neither in employment nor in further education and training.

Open schooling can create learning opportunities for those not in school, those who left school and those who are in school but not learning effectively. There is no single model for open schooling provision which might offer a complementary or alternative curriculum, or both. However, all models can benefit from greater use of open educational resources; open, distance and flexible methods and open educational practices. In this way it is possible to address issues of access, quality and affordability in a sustainable way.

This book offers guidelines and examples that will be of use to teachers, managers, policy-makers and education leaders interested to ensure that the education system meets the needs of all children and youths.

Analyzing Institutional Publishing Output: A Short Course
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This short course provides training materials about how to create a set of publication data, gather additional information about the data through an API (Application Programming Interface), clean the data, and analyze the data in various ways. Developing these skills will assist academic librarians who are:

Negotiating a renewal of a journal package or an open access publishing agreement,
Interested in which journals the institution's authors published in or which repositories the institution’s authors shared their works in,
Looking to identify publications that could be added to your repository,
Searching for authors who do or do not publish OA for designing outreach programs, or
Tracking how open access choices have changed over time.
After completing the lessons, the user will be able to gain an understanding of an institution’s publishing output, such as number of publications per year, open access status of the publications, major funders of the research, estimates of how much funding might be spent towards article processing charges (APCs), and more. The user will also be better prepared to think critically about institutional publishing data to make sustainable and values-driven scholarly communications decisions.

The course is presented in two sections. Section 1 describes how to build a dataset. Section 2 describes a free, open source tool for working with data. Examples of how to do analyses both in OpenRefine and Microsoft Excel are provided.

This short course was created for the Scholarly Communication Notebook. The file "Analyzing Institutional Publishing Output-A Short Course.docx" serves as a table of contents for the materials.

Celebrating Cultural Communities: Innovative Statewide Use of OER Through Collaborative Partnerships
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Diffusion of Innovations theory (Rogers, 2003) states that potential adopters moving through the innovation-decision process consider the innovation’s relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, trialability and observability. Rogers (2003) claimed that an individual's perception of these characteristics, or attributes, had a direct impact on whether and to what degree an innovation is adopted and diffused throughout an organization or system. The purpose of this presentation is to share, through the lens of Diffusion of Innovations theory, how members of the Online Consortium of Oklahoma supported the adoption and diffusion of the use of an online publishing platform intended to support consortial-wide adoption, modification, and creation of OER. The 25 member institutions of Online Consortium of Oklahoma (OCO) include two-year institutions, four-year institutions, technical institutes, and doctoral degree granting institutions. As a result, OCO’s strategic vision takes into consideration a broad range of needs, interests, and goals. As members of the OER subcommittee envisioned how to promote use of the publishing platform to each of their institutions, it became apparent that one simple on-boarding process for use across all institutions was ineffective. Faculty introduced to the platform would express interest but those who took additional steps to learn more about its use seemed to be those who had the opportunity to observe use of the platform by a respected peer or colleague with whom they were personally acquainted. Additionally, the group noticed faculty initially resistant to using the platform became enthusiastic about its use once given access to its full capacity. In this lightning talk, representatives from OCO member institutions will describe how they intentionally addressed observability and trialability to support the adoption and diffusion of the publishing platform and statewide use of OER.

Composing Ourselves and Our World: A Guide to First Year Writing
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This textbook is meant for first year English Composition Courses. The text covers the essentials of composition and rhetoric in a recursive manner and introduces research skills.

When you are eager to get started on the coursework in your major that will prepare you for your career, getting excited about an introductory college writing course can be difficult. However, regardless of your field of study, honing your writing skills—and your reading and critical-thinking skills—gives you a more solid academic foundation.

In college, academic expectations change from what you may have experienced in high school. The quantity of work you are expected to do is increased. When instructors expect you to read pages upon pages or study hours and hours for one particular course, managing your work load can be challenging.

The quality of the work you do also changes. It is not enough to understand course material and summarize it on an exam. You will also be expected to seriously engage with new ideas by reflecting on them, analyzing them, critiquing them, making connections, drawing conclusions, or finding new ways of thinking about a given subject. Educationally, you are moving into deeper waters. A good introductory writing course will help you swim.

Differentiating Between Open Access and Open Educational Resources
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Differentiating open access and open educational resource can be a challenge in some contexts. Excellent resources such as "How Open Is It?: A Guide for Evaluating the Openness of Journals" (CC BY) https://sparcopen.org/our-work/howopenisit created by SPARC, PLOS, and OASPA greatly aid us in understanding the relative openness of journals. However, visual resources to conceptually differentiate open educational resources (OER) from resources disseminated using an open access approach do not currently exist. Until now.

This one page introductory guide differentiates OER and OA materials on the basis of purpose (teaching vs. research), method of access (analog and digital), and in terms of the relative freedoms offered by different levels of Creative Commons licenses, the most common open license. Many other open licenses, including open software licenses also exist.

In Romanian universities, European Studies are traditionally focused on social and political sciences, economics, law or history, as well as international relations. Lately, EU aspects have increasingly been included in study areas that are not specifically related to the EU, and tailor-made courses on specific EU issues have been introduced that are relevant for graduates in their professional life.Unfortunately, only a few interdisciplinary modules have been developed over the last few years in Romanian universities. Therefore, West University of Timisoara (WUT) looks to the best ways of delivering the European dimension in all study programmes, by involving the use of new technologies and innovative teaching methods.Thus, the general aim of the proposed project is to integrate a short teaching programme about digital literacy (DL) into different European contexts, into curricula of different specialisations within WUT. The proposed module adopts innovative teaching methodologies based on Open Educational Practices (OEP), such as flipped classroom, MOOCs.

Com as mudanças de paradigmas na Educação, é importante que os professores conheçam as transformações a que se têm assistido, nomeadamente no que concerne à Educação a Distância, cada vez mais propagada no mundo académico. Tendo esta última modificado nos últimos anos as formas de ensino e aprendizagem, torna-se cada vez mais necessário que entusiastas da área compreendam as metodologias da EAD de forma mais progressiva e sejam capazes de as integrar no processo. Partindo deste pressuposto, “Educação a Distância e Mediação para Professores” é um curso de curta duração que se destina a compartilhar recursos de desenvolvimento profissional e de instrução que enaltecem o papel do professor como agente principal na mudança do processo de ensino / aprendizagem. Pretende-se que os docentes interessados adquiram uma profunda compreensão acerca do papel da Educação a Distância, dos processos de transição entre modelos presenciais e a distância, da virtualização de cursos, desenvolvimento de actividades na rede, bem como do uso de recursos capazes de ajudar os alunos a atender às novas expectativas, entre outros.Este trata-se por isso de um curso de formação de professores para todos os que pretendem utilizar a WEB nas suas aulas mas não sabem como incorporar as novas tecnologias eficazmente neste contexto, usar e integrar materiais motivadores que funcionem como elementos enriquecedores da experiência de aprendizagem online, bem como desenvolver pedagogias integradas e tangíveis. Os conteúdos programáticos do curso proposto assumem-se como os seguintes: 1. Ensino a Distância – contextualização do seu papel no século XXI2. Autonomia na Aprendizagem3. Perfil do Professor e a importância da comunicação4. Concepção e desenho5. Selecção de Plataformas6. Utilização de Recursos Educacionais Abertos7. Planeamento de Actividades Online O presente módulo abrange conteúdos acerca da primeira temática do curso - Ensino a Distância e a sua contextualização  no século XXI.
