Stanford Seminar: The Science of Learning, Data, and Transformation in Higher Education
CS547: Human-Computer Interaction Seminar The Science of Learning, Data, and Transformation in Higher Education Speaker: Candace Thille, Stanford University The goal of the science of learning is to understand, predict and explain human learning. A great deal of learning research has resulted in principles of learning that could be used to enhance education; however, the results of that research often have not translated into successful changes in teaching practice, educational technology design, or student learning. In this talk, I will describe a model for using educational technology to shift the relationship between learning research and teaching practice in service of simultaneously improving student learning and contributing to our fundamental understanding of human learning. I will also describe a new Open Analytics Research System (OARS) that we are developing at Stanford. The OARS collects fine-grained student learning data and models that data to make predictions about the learner. We will have an audience participation part of the session to leverage the HCI design expertise in the room to address the question of how to represent the data we have to help faculty using OARS make informed choices for the classroom. About the Speaker: Candace Thille is the founding director of the Open Learning Initiative (OLI) at Carnegie Mellon University and at Stanford University. She is a senior research fellow in the Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning and an assistant professor in the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University. Her focus is in applying the results from research in the science of learning to the design and evaluation of open web-based learning environments and in using those environments to conduct research in human learning. Dr. Thille serves on the board of directors of the Association of American Colleges and Universities; as a fellow of the International Society for Design and Development in Education; on the Assessment 2020 Task Force of the American Board of Internal Medicine; on the advisory council for the Association of American Universities STEM initiative; and on the advisory council for the National Science Foundation Directorate for Education and Human Resources. She served on the working group of the President¹s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) that produced theEngage to Excel report. She served on the U.S. Department of Education working groups, co-authoring the 2010 and 2015National Education Technology Plans. She was recently named one of The Sixteen Most Innovative People in Higher Education by the Washington Monthly.

An API for open educational resources - WPCampus 2018 - WordPress in Higher Education
In spring 2017, the team at Pressbooks began work on an Open Publishing Infrastructure project with funding from Ryerson University. Our goals were to build a full-content REST API for Pressbooks and use it to power a new feature for users and institutions creating Open Educational Resources: the ability to clone openly-licensed books for reuse and remixing. We shipped this feature in September 2017 and have continued to iterate and improve upon it in the months since. This session will explore: - How we extended the WordPress REST API to provide endpoints for book contents and metadata and a catalogue of books in a given network - How we built a PHP class to handle cloning books or portions of books from one Pressbooks network to another - Challenges we encountered while working with the WordPress REST API - Opportunities and future goals for the Pressbooks REST API You can learn more about this session on the WPCampus 2018 website at https://2018.wpcampus.org/schedule/api-for-open-educational-resources/.

Unlocking the Classroom: Maximizing the Potential of Open Educational Resources
As more research is conducted on the impact open educational resources (OER) have on the cost of higher education and on learning outcomes, it’s becoming increasingly clear that OER offer an effective alternative to traditional textbooks. However, use of OER remains relatively uncommon at four-year colleges and universities. In this presentation, David Wiley addresses challenges of OER adoption, discusses the transformational experience of creating renewable assignments that allow students to create and openly share content, and predicts what lies ahead for open education.

Open Educational Practices (OEP) for teaching in higher education
Seminar series: Growing Open Educational Practices in Africa SEMINAR 1 Presenter: Catherine Cronin, Centre for Excellence in Learning & Teaching (CELT), National University of Ireland, Galway Open educational practices (OEP) is a broad descriptor of practices that include the creation, use and reuse of open educational resources (OER) as well as open pedagogies and open sharing of teaching practices. As compared with OER, there has been little empirical research on educators’ use of OEP for teaching in higher education. Catherine’s research addresses this gap, exploring the digital and pedagogical strategies of university educators, focusing on whether, why and how they use open educational practices for teaching. Catherine’s research was conducted at one European university based on semi-structured interviews with educators across multiple disciplines. Using a constructivist grounded theory approach, she found four dimensions shared by open educators: balancing privacy and openness, developing digital literacies, valuing social learning, and challenging traditional teaching role expectations. She argues that the use of OEP by educators is complex, personal, and contextual; it is also continuously negotiated. Her findings suggest that research-informed policies and collaborative and critical approaches to openness are required to support staff, students, and learning in an increasingly complex higher education environment This online event invites us to discuss and consider the following (among other) questions: Why and when might educators and educational technology practitioners choose open, and why not? In our contexts, how can we balance personal choice (regarding openness) with institutional and other constraints? How can we grow open educational practices in African Higher Education?

How US Colleges & Universities Use Twitter?
This study employed data mining and quantitative methods to collect and analyze the available histories of primary Twitter accounts of institutions of higher education in the U.S. (n = 2411). The study comprises a sample of 5.7 million tweets, representing 62 % of all tweets created by these accounts and the entire population of U.S. colleges and universities. With this large, generalizable dataset, researchers were able to determine that the preponderance of institutional tweets are 1) monologic, 2) disseminate information (vs. eliciting action), 3) link to a relatively limited and insular ecosystem of web resources, and 4) express neutral or positive sentiment. While prior research suggests that social media can serve as a vehicle for institutions to extend their reach and further demonstrate their value to society, this article provides empirical and generalizable evidence to suggest that such innovation, in the context of institutional social media use, is limited.

The Future of Higher Education: Panel Discussion - CGI U 2014
As the global demand for education increases and the cost of college continues to rise, the need for more accessible and innovative models of higher education is greater than ever. A surge in digital learning resources—from accredited massive open online courses to informal YouTube tutorials—has dramatically expanded access to educational content around the world and could fundamentally redefine what it means to be a student. However, access to information alone is not always enough to boost learning outcomes, prepare students of all socioeconomic backgrounds for the job market, and cultivate the skills necessary to be a productive 21st century citizen. How can educational systems provide all young people with the tools to succeed at college and how can higher education institutions, from community colleges to four-year universities, better provide the development of high-demand skills for employment and societal participation? This session will bring together entrepreneurs, innovators, and educators to discuss how higher education can become more accessible and effective.

Digital Transformation and CIO Innovation in Higher Education (#243)
Education is undergoing a transformation unlike any that it has undergone in recent memory. The rise of digital education along with a host of shifting expectations by students is demanding new ways of delivering learning. Higher education must also provide new digital methods to serve to a wide-ranging group of institutional stakeholders, from educators and parents to administrators and students. In this episode, Joanna Young, recent higher ed CIO, industry advisor, and well-known thought leader, brings her latest insight and thinking on the digital transformation of higher education. She is an important example of successful women in technology. Joanna Young is well-known and a highly experienced higher education CIO. She was CIO at the University of New Hampshire and Michigan State University. She is currently a consulting advisor to CIOs and the Information Technology departments of large organizations. Dion Hinchcliffe is an industry analyst and host of CXOTALK. Read the entire transcript and learn more at https://www.cxotalk.com/episode/higher-education-digital-transformation From the transcript: Joanna Young: (01:05) So, I've had actually three stints as a CIO. I was a CIO at Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, CIO at the University of New Hampshire, and CIO at Michigan State University. So, two stints in a higher education, one stint in insurance, and it's an absolutely fascinating time to be in IT. And, about a year or so ago, I decided to broaden my horizons and start helping out CIOs and other C-suite leaders in a variety of ways related to technology. Dion Hinchcliffe: (04:59) What challenges do you see normally when a CIO has been given that mandated; do all these great new things, but typically not given any resources to do that? Joanna Young: (05:44) Yeah! So, you know, the difficulties of getting capital to improve the business position through technology is often a challenge. I think a link that’s been missing, but there’s certainly a lot of pressure on it now, is the talent piece of it. Talent is a tremendous problem in technology. I call it the “technology-talent wars” in a blog I wrote fairly recently. And there’s often a lot of conversation around money we need to spend on infrastructure, money we need to spend to acquire a new piece of technology, money we need to spend on services to correctly implement that technology. But, I also try to help people shift the conversation to what talent is it that you need to innovate? To implement? To operate your technology portfolio? And are you making sure that you’re hiring the right talent? Retaining them? Applying them correctly? (06:48) Since we’re in this era of hyper-acceleration, someone coming into a technology job today, they’re going to have to re-skill and up-skill multiple times and all the time. And I think CIOs, CEOs, and boards need to pay a lot more attention to the talent they need, and they need to think just as much about applying capital, if you will, to the recruiting and retention of the right talent as they do to making decisions about, and buying technology. Joanna Young: (08:15) So, what I often counsel people on is that you need to have multiple channels of getting talent. I mean, many of our universities, for example, don’t tend to maybe be in urban areas, for example. There are many large universities like Michigan State University, Ohio State, who are in sort of suburban or rural areas that don’t tend to be technology centers of gravity. And in those instances, they need to have multiple ways of sourcing talent. One way is very obvious. It’s the students. You know? Many students like to work at the university while they’re there, and are interested in having and working for the university once they graduate, so that’s certainly a source. You know, university towns tend to be very attractive, interesting places to stay, work, and play, if you will. And so, looking for people who want to stay in the area for whatever reason. (09:19) And also, an area that higher ed hasn’t particularly been interested in, historically, that I believe needs to get more interested in now, is they need to think about alternate sourcing. And, I’m not necessarily talking about jumping into offshore arrangements, but thinking about just as we are meeting remotely here today, right Dion? You can have people working remotely extremely effectively. I work remotely with my clients a fair amount. And there are ways to say, “Hey! I’m in a rural area of New England, let’s say, and somebody who’s really attractive to me to have them work for me lives in Chicago.” Well, okay. That’s fine! Maybe, you fly them in once a month and the rest of the time, they use tools like this to interact with their colleagues and their peers.

Minerva: A New Kind of Higher Education
(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) Stephen Kosslyn focuses the conversation on key aspects of the Minerva Program. Minerva is a unique undergraduate education experience which allows students to be globally immersed and live in other cities around the world. Each city becomes a campus, and Minerva uses its resources to engage students in innovative learning. The entire curriculum is designed to help students master four core competencies, two cognitive and two social. The cognitive competencies are critical thinking and creative thinking and the social competencies are effective communication and effective interactions. All the seminars are face-to-face, in real time, and have a professor guiding the class virtually. Students live together in Minerva residential halls, which allows them to have a full social life as well as a chance to engage in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

Higher Education: Privilege or Right?: Ella Turenne at TEDxOccidentalCollege
America has the highest rate of incarceration in the world -- over 2.3 million people are locked behind bars on a daily basis. While we are content to spend billions of dollars incarcerating men and women, we neglect the fact that many of them will come home with little to no resources to assist them in contributing positively to our society. Every person who is incarcerated should have access to quality higher education if they desire it, and this would benefit them and the communities they live in. There is a great deal of national public conversation about access to higher education for underserved communities, but this rarely includes incarcerated people, who are some of the most underrepresented people in the country. Ella Turenne is an artist, activist and educator. Currently, she is Assistant Dean for Community Engagement at Occidental College. At Occidental, she works with students, faculty, staff and community partners to engage in social justice projects in Los Angeles. Ella's work has been published in various anthologies including Letters from Young Activists: Today's Rebels Speak Out, Check the Rhyme: An Anthology of Female Poets and Emcees (nominated for a 2007 NAACP Image Award) and Woman's Work: The Short Stories and most recently in "Turning Teaching Inside Out." She is the editor of a volume of visual art and poetry commemorating the Haitian revolution entitled "revolution|revolisyon|révolution 1804-2004: An Artistic Commemoration of the Haitian Revolution." Ella is also a filmmaker whose work has been an official selection of various national film festivals including the Hollywood Black Film Festival and the Montréal International Haitian Film Festival, where her short film "woodshed" was nominated for Best Short Film. In response to the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Ella co-edited a volume of poetry on Haiti called "For the Crowns of Your Heads;" the funds raised were used to aid a library that was destroyed in Port-au-Prince. As an activist, she is on the Executive Steering Committee of the Inside Out Prison Exchange Program and an active member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She was also a member of the Blackout Arts Collective where she participated in Lyrics on Lockdown, a national tour where she performed and facilitated workshops educating communities about the prison-industrial complex. She was also co-founder of SistaPAC Productions, whose mission is to develop original creative works from women of color. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

8/7/09 Governor Quinn Signs Veterans Higher Education Bill
CHICAGO August 7, 2009. Governor Pat Quinn today signed into law a bill that provides greater educational and informational resources for veterans attending Illinois public colleges and universities. This legislation provides our student veterans with the needed information, assistance and guidance they deserve, said Governor Quinn. It is necessary that we take care of these fine men and women who have served our country proudly and ensure they are aware of the resources and benefits that are available to them to further their education. The Higher Education Veterans Service Act will require schools to create, publish and distribute a comprehensive guide of services available specifically to veterans at their institutions. The bill also requires schools with 1,000 or more full-time students to appoint a coordinator to act as a liaison between administrators and student veterans. Senate Bill 1624 was sponsored by Sen. Dan Kotowski (D-Park Ridge) and Rep. Mark Walker (D-Arlington Heights). Within 60 days, schools must produce a comprehensive guide to services and post the information online. The measure is effective immediately. Within six months, schools with 1,000 or more full-time students must appoint a Coordinator of Veterans and Military Personnel Student Services. The Coordinator will serve as an ombudsman to assist student veterans, military personnel and their families, and also act as a liaison and advocate with the college or university for the needs of student veterans. Many public and private universities have already gone above and beyond to serve veteran populations, and we hope this will further encourage best practices for student veterans throughout our state, said Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs Director Dan Grant. Governor Quinn was joined at the bill signing ceremony held at the University of Illinois at Chicago by UIC Dean of Students Linda Deanna; Dr. Randy Plunkett, National Director of Military Affairs for DeVry University; and Robert Malnik, Illinois State Director for Student Veterans of America.

HECI: The Tool to Dismantle India's Higher Education System
Students and teachers jointly protested at Ministry of Human Resource Development against the proposed move of the government to scrap the University Grants Commission and replace it with Higher Education Commission of India Act. The HECI will have no grant giving power and that power is being taken over by the MHRD. This will result into more political interference and diffusion of academic freedom. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "The Kanwars : Infamous Shiv Bhakts of North India, Bharat Ek Mauj, Season 2 E1 " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01w0jBWPu3Q -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Paul LeBlanc Recommends Resources on Reinventing Higher Education's Business Model
Since Paul LeBlanc became president of Southern New Hampshire University in 2003, the university has more than quadrupled in size. It’s now the largest provider of online higher education in New England, one of the five largest in the country, and the first to have a full competency-based degree program untethered to the credit hour or classes approved by a regional accreditor and the U.S. Department of Education. In 2012 the university ranked 12 on Fast Company’s World’s Fifty Most Innovative Companies list — the only university included. Repeatedly named one of New Hampshire’s Most Influential People by New Hampshire Business Review, LeBlanc won a New England Higher Education Excellence Award in 2012 — the same year Forbes listed him as one of its 15 Classroom Revolutionaries, Bloomberg TV featured him on its Innovators series, and Fast Company included him on its 1,000 Most Creative People list. As a child LeBlanc immigrated to the U.S. and became the first person in his extended family to attend college. He earned his bachelor’s from Framingham State University, master’s from Boston College, and doctorate from University of Massachusetts. Prior to leading SNHU he directed a technology start up for Houghton Mifflin Publishing Company and served as president of Marlboro College.
