CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title of the Year: Interactive Open Educational Resources: A Guide to Finding, Choosing, and Using What's Out There to Transform College Teaching

CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title of the Year: Interactive Open Educational Resources: A Guide to Finding, Choosing, and Using What's Out There to Transform College Teaching | Blended Librarianship | Scoop.it

Sponsored by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), this one-of-a-kind book demonstrates the best tools, resources, and techniques for discovering, selecting, and integrating interactive open educational resources (OERs) into the teaching and learning process. The author examines many of the best repositories and digital library websites for finding high quality materials, explaining in depth the best practices for effectively searching these repositories and the various methods for evaluating, selecting, and integrating the resources into the instructor’s curriculum and course assignments, as well as the institution’s learning management system.

John Shank's insight:

All, never expected to have this book make CHOICE's OATs selection for 2014. Thanks for all your efforts with getting this work published between JB & ACRL.

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | Blended Librarianship | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
  1. raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;
  2. gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; 
  3. comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;
  4. thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; and
  5. communicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

The Freshman Flip: An Exploration Live Today @ Library 2.014

The Freshman Flip: An Exploration Live Today @ Library 2.014 | Blended Librarianship | Scoop.it

Join us for an animated discussion based on our successful reworking of library instruction to reach all students in their first year @ Penn State Berks. With the use of online audience polling and audience interaction, we will journey together through our trek of “flipping” first year seminars (FYS). We started with creating tutorials, developing online activities, designing in-class active learning exercises, reaching out effectively to FYS faculty, and ending our voyage with faculty assessment. Our story of creation, implementation, and marketing which led to collaborative working relationships with faculty will inspire you to embark on your own excursion.

Shiban Kak's curator insight, February 2, 3:43 AM

Design should be the basis of Engineering education and bringing in the design focus makes the students understand what problem solving is, what knowledge application within the bounds of constraints is and finally what is meant by the trade off to make an optimal decision. Many of us in the technical education must use the science and philosophy of design to make students learn what engineering is about. Engineers must be creative and generate products & services that benefits humanity and makes life more enjoyable for all but not at the cost of environment as that places the burden of my today's solution on the children's of tomorrow.

Tony Meehan's curator insight, November 27, 2014 3:03 PM

This model describes 4 levels of mastery using measurements of competence and consciousness.  As novices, we are in a state of “Unconscious Incompetence”, where we don’t recognize what we need to know.  As we gain knowledge and experience, we transition to “Conscious Incompetence,” where we are aware of what we do not know.  Developing further, the third stage is “Conscious Competence,” where most of us remain.  We have considerable ability and knowledge at our craft, yet it is not automatic; we must still think and act deliberately.  The fourth and final stage is mastery, or “Unconscious Competence”.
