OCTBR – Online Course Teaching and Building Rubric

(View Complete Item Description)

The OCTBR (pronounced “October”) tool is a Creative Commons-licensed rubric developed originally for health science instructors, to provide perspectives and resources for building online courses, assessments and experiences. OCTBR has been influenced by student survey feedback, and excellent Creative Commons-licensed rubrics and tools, namely CSU-Chico’s QOLT (Quality Online Learning and Teaching) instrument, and Joan Van Duzer’s Instructional Design Tips for Online Learning, and reflects on peer-reviewed learning and assessment strategies specific to health science education. OCTBR is not prescriptive, but offers concrete strategies for integrating best overall practices in online courses, and successful assessment and learning design in the health sciences. If an instructor or designer has an extremely short amount of time to design a course, they would use the Autumn checklist to consider possibilities for their course. If at least a month is available, rather than weeks, the Summer checklist is appropriate. The Spring checklist is for those who have at least three months to build a course, while the Winter checklist is for a course designed almost a year in advance, or several courses developed by a department or team. Examples of assessments, methods, and assignments nested into OCTBR include: ACGME’s Toolbox and Milestones Project Academic Life in Medicine’s MEDIC series AAMC Clinical Skills Curriculum Community of Inquiry (COI) model Communities of Practice Critically Appraised Topics (CAT) ePatients #FOAMED & Creative Commons Gianetti, Radecki-Bush and Hansen's Clinical Skills Inventory (CSI) Greenhalgh’s series on reading for EBP Griffin & Novotny’s Interpersonal Skills Rubric for Group Process Haynes’ 6S pyramid Melnyk’s Hierarchy of Evidence Metacognition in medical education Pangaro’s RIME Inventory Quality Checklists for Health Professions Blogs and Podcasts Schön's Reflection in action/ Reflection on action REFLECT Rubric

Published on Feb 17, 2015 Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up. Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain. This unfolds across a lifetime, to the point where those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer. An impassioned plea for pediatric medicine to confront the prevention and treatment of trauma, head-on.

Literacy for College Success – Simple Book Publishing

(View Complete Item Description)

This book is a compilation of four primary texts, which we significantly remixed and edited, as well as original compositions of our own. The basis for the organization and the majority of the first two chapters of this book are adapted from Fran Bozarth’s Reading & Writing for Learning. Bozarth’s opening chapter provides a clear focus for students entering college—they must create a basis for learning. We supplemented these chapters with material and activities from both Marken and Martinez, et al., which are comprehensive courses dedicated to helping students learn strategies for success in academia. Unit 2 is Bozarth’s work on vocabulary skills, with a few edits and a bit of composition from us. We used portions of Babin, et al. to develop Unit 3, which directs students to analysis and reflection on literary texts, necessary skills for moving forward in college courses. The final chapters go back to material from Bozarth, but also contain significant original contributions of our own, with a unique activity provided by our colleague Heather Kanicki. The course finishes with a focus on comprehending authorship and authority, literacy, and persuasion in academic/professional texts.
