OER & Online Learning: Faculty Quick Start Guide

(View Complete Item Description)

The Faculty Quick Start Guide is an outcome of a project by ISKME, supported by a grant from the Michelson 20MM Foundation, to conduct a study and develop a set of resources to accelerate OER use for distance education, especially the urgent shift to remote learning during the pandemic in 2020. The Guide, created in collaboration with a selection of OER and online education champions across California community colleges (CCC), contains: - Models and approaches to online learning, and to emergency remote learning in the context of COVID-19; - How and to what extent OER fits into these models, and local and state-level supports needed for its integration and sustainability; - Design considerations for integrating OER in online learning, including pedagogical and platform considerations; - Curatorial practices, such as using OER curation tools and aligning curated OER to learning outcomes; and, - Starting points and tips for colleges and faculty who want to initiate OER integration into distance education. Tailored to faculty and campus administrators both in California and beyond, the Guide has the aim is to enable system-wide shifts to meet postsecondary institutions’ long term goals for distance learning, and faculty’s emergency plans for remote learning in response to the COVID-19 and potential future crises. The Guide is also available as a PDF for download: https://drive.google.com/file/d/17AXs30dZeLOrGeNBQ-ISc_OJXIxE9xtB/view?usp=sharing.

OpenStax Chemistry: Flipped Classroom Reading Guides for General Chemistry (2nd semester)

(View Complete Item Description)

Here you can find reading guides that were created by Montgomery College faculty for undergraduate general chemistry students to use to guide their reading of OpenStax Chemistry. These guides are closely aligned with chapters 12-17 and 21 and were designed for use in the second semester sequence of general chemistry. They can be used in a flipped-style classroom where students complete them before the lecture. Or they can be used to reinforce important topics learned in class. Each study guide has fill-in-the blank style questions, and many have links to videos where similar problems are worked through. Finally, suggested practice problems relevant to the topic of each study guide are listed at the end.

Ion-Exchange Chromatography

(View Complete Item Description)

We now know how to analyze pure compounds, but what if we have a mixture? Spectrophometry becomes quite complex when dealing with multiple species of compounds at once. In order to purify a compound we can separate if from a mixture based on its intrinsic chemical properties. Remember that fluorescein is negatively charged at a pH above pKa of the carboxyl group. We can take advantage of this fact and use its attraction to positive charges to separate it from other molecules. In ion-exchange chromatography, we will use a stationary phase with a positive charge, allowing negatively charged molecules to bind and positively charged species to flow through. We can then disrupt this interaction and retrieve our now-purified molecule, and use spectrophotometric analysis of our purified fractions to determine how well we were able to separate our molecules.

ims-compliant zip file to upload to d2l (aka brightspace)

(View Complete Item Description)

I've converted the collection.xml file in the zipped version of OpenStax Chemistry v 12.1 https://cnx.org/exports/85abf193-2bd2-4908-8563-90b8a7ac8df6@12.1.zip/chemistry-12.1.zip to an imsmanifest.xml file so that one can import the whole book into D2L (Brightspace). Attached here is the imsmanifest.xml file alone. I don't know a lot about IMS compliance, but I think this imsmanifest.xml file could work for other LMSs as well. Please let me know if it does, or if you have other ways of importing the textbook to a LMS. I have also "prettied up" the html files in the zipped version of OpenStax Chemistry v12.1 by: - removing the path for the images, - using <details></details> for objectives, summaries and solutions, and - creating a .css file which takes advantage of the various environments defined in the .html file That new zip file is attached. Finally, I'm also attaching the perl script that I used to change the .html files, in case you want to make systemic changes to what I did or try something else.
