  • Dimensions of scale on the resource side Identify some resources available to support you, esp technology Take advantage of them
  • Conference has focused on higher level questions of scale; we’d like to get down in the weeds a little. Was looking for a example to let you know what we’d be delivering, and fate delivered. Especially important among the Open community. Based on questions I’ve been getting—what is open education? OR better, who is the communituy
  • OLI and CAST will offer three tiers of support to grantees: Information and support on effective course design and evaluation. Course delivery and data capture for 25 grantees via out Platform+ program. Three teams of grantees will be selected to participate with OLI in full Co-development efforts.

  • We are being asked to address the seemingly impossible challenge of making higher education less expensive and more accessible while also increasing its effectiveness. The difficulty is heightened by the fact that faculty and institutions must support not only an increase in the number of students but also greater variability in the student population's background knowledge, relevant skills and future goals.  OER can be a key component of success, but only if it leverages the results and methodologies of learning science to create transformational innovations that fundamentally change the way higher education is developed, delivered and improved year-after-year.

  • Example from TAACCCT grantee National STEM consortium co-development effort - alternative representations of information. Critical for non-sited learners, but also for sited learners that need additional information.
  • Alt tags are letter of the law accessibility, foundational for UDL
  • Long descriptions are an example of UDL and there is an equally high representation of information through alternate means. This is not a costly or unattractive retrofit after the fact, because we haven ’ t anticipated variability, it is a design that plans for variability from the outset.
  • Example: STEM scenarios Representation principle does not stop at alternate representations of information, but alternate representations of how and where information and knowledge is used, and by whom.  
  • The use of cases in the STEM bridge course, provides a different representation of how math is used, and alters the meaning of math and understanding of its purpose for these learners. This contextualization of learning in turn opens up different pathways for thinking about action and expression (principle 2) and engagement (principle 3). Learning by doing, means something different if you have represented the knowledge to be gained in a contextualized fashion through stories, cases, videos of work in action, all possible with the use of media and OERs.
