Addressing the Learning Needs of Out-of-School Children and Youths through the Expansion of Open Schooling
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
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.

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.

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.

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.

This lesson plan, developed originally for graduate Library and Information Science (LIS) students is focused on developing culturally responsive and equity-minded LIS professionals when promoting open education with students, scholars, and community members from historically underrepresented backgrounds and/or with marginalized identities. Though many open practitioners discuss and leverage open education as a means of democratizing education and information access, we must remember the harm that learners and scholars face when we adopt openness with a paternalistic mindset. This lesson consists of readings, case studies, slide decks, and discussions.

Frog Heart Preparation
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

An isolated frog heart preparation is useful in the study of cardiac cell excitation. The small size of the frog's heart means that drugs applied to the outside of the heart will peneterate the myocardium and modify the functions of the heart's cardiac chambers. Thus, the effect of the autonomic neurotransmitter substance together with their modification by other drugs can be studied by addition of these agents to the heart.This module has been internally reviewed by a cross-disciplinary committee within KNUST prior to releasing as an Open Educational Resource.
