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.

Becoming Open Education Leaders Webinar #edtech #OER #openaccess #highered #education #elearning #acrl | Blended Librarianship | Scoop.it

Join the Blended Librarians Online Learning Community on Thursday, May 28 at 3:00 pm EDT for a free webcast presentation and discussion with Quill West, an open education advocate, librarian, and educator from Washington State. Currently Quill is the Open Education Project Manager at Pierce College. In her webcast, West will speak to the importance of academic librarians fostering an institutional culture that embraces open education as their institutions recognize that textbook costs create a significant barrier to students’ access to education. Librarians in Washington State are taking a leadership role in college-wide efforts to adopt alternatives to textbooks by engaging in a Library Services Technology Act (LSTA) Grant administered by the Washington State Library/Office of the Secretary of State. In the effort to be open education leader, West and colleagues have created a course for librarians on how to serve open education needs. The webcast will address the open education skills that librarians are developing in order to better serve the open education needs of our institutions.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 8, 3:35 PM
If you have worked in any educational environment from elementary school, higher education, or corporate training, then you have had students who consistently struggle with a topic, skill, or prerequisite knowledge that they must learn in order to be successful. Likewise, many of those same students struggle to motivate themselves to learn the material they are struggling with.

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.

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.

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”.
