  • Hold On!
  • “We are in the midst of a technological, economic, and organizational transformation that allows us to negotiate the terms of freedom, justice, and productivity in the information society”

  • Yes… We Really are Networked…
    seamless connection of people, resources & knowledge
    digitization of content
    mobile, personal
    global platform for collaboration
    outsourcing
    Anyone notice our global economy?
  • "According to an IBM study, by 2010, the amount of digital information in the world will double every 11 hours."
  • And we can make
    all of our
    “digital stuff”
    available to
    all people…
    and most of it
    will get used...
    by someone.

  • We All Get to Participate

  • In a flat world, the artists, the synthesizers of ideas will rule.
    And they will use web 2.0 software standards, and practices to distribute their ideas.
  • And they are not afraid to:
  • And they want services
    like this:
    Backup
  • So, what might be in capstone graduation requirements to:
    prepare students for
    jobs that don’t yet exist, using
    technologies that haven’t been
    invented, to solve problems we
    don’t even know are problems yet?

  • (1) Engage Participatory / “Web 2.0+”
    Tools & Practices
  • RTC Capstone #1
    All RTC students contribute knowledge to an open, public, social network in their field of study… if none exists – the student starts a new online community.
  • - JSB
  • “Welcome back to humanity. Some technologies take us away from ourselves and others bring us back. Web 2.0 is helping us rediscover our naturally cooperative, creative, and gregarious nature.
    Don't think, therefore, of  Web 2.0 as something foreign or hyped-up or all about geeks; Web 2.0 is the rebirth of teaching and learning that fits what we are as a species.”
    Why is Web 2.0 Important to Higher Education?

  • (2) eLearning
    Why call it “eLearning?”
  • RTC Capstone #2
    All RTC students take at least one online or hybrid coursebefore graduating.
  • “Distance” is about geographic separation.
    “eLearning” is about leveraging the unique affordances of digital, networked technologies to support new ways of learning in new spaces.
    Online, Hybrid, Enhanced
    “eLearning”
  • Ongoing Online Learning Growth
    Over 83,000 students learn online each year
    eLearning enrollments up more than 41% (Winter 08 – Winter 09)
    11 percent of community and technical college courses are fully online
    41
  • Ongoing Online Learning Growth
    45% of all CTC graduates earn 15 or more credits online or hybrid
    23 colleges offer 86 different degrees and certificates online
    16 colleges offer an AA degree online
    Community and Technical Colleges teach over 80+% of all online [state supported] FTE in WA

  • What’s Happening @ RTC?
  • Going to Web and Mobile
  • Why does this growth matter?
  • Educate More Citizens
    • HECB Master Plan
    • I. Raise educational attainment to create prosperity, opportunity
    • Policy Goal: Increase the total number of degrees and certificates produced annually to achieve Global Challenge State benchmarks.
    • By 2018, raise mid-level degrees and certificates to 36,200 annually, an increase of 9,400 degrees annually.
  • 2008 Online + Hybrid LearningGas / Carbon Savings
    1.9M round trips avoided
    = reduced traffic congestion
    2.1M gallons of gas saved

  • (3) Open Educational Resources
  • RTC Capstone #3
    All RTC students actively contribute to, redesign, and/or evaluate open educational resources, as a faculty guided assignment, in at least one RTC course.
  • Because when we cooperate and share, we all win – exponentially.
    Reedʼs Law: Networks grow [in value] exponentially by the number of nodes.
    It’s a social justice issue: everyone has the right to access global knowledge.
    Why is “Open” Important?
    Institute for the Future whitepaper: Technologies of Cooperation
  • Definition of OER
    Digitized materials, offered freely and openly for educators, students, to use and re-use for teaching, learning and research.
  • The Old Economics
    Print, warehouse, and ship a new book for every student

  • The New Economics
    Upload one copy, and everyone uses it simultaneously
    Making copies, storage, distribution of digital stuff = “Free”

  • and there is this small
    collection of articles:
  • Why do we Need Open Textbooks?
    2005 GAO report: College textbook prices have risen at twice the rate of annual inflation over the last two decades
    http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d05806.pdf
  • Why do we Need Open Textbooks?
    The College Board reported that for the 2007 through 2008 academic years each student spent an estimated $805 to $1,229 on college books and supplies…
    http://www.collegeboard.com/prod_downloads/about/news_info/trends/trends_pricing_07.pdf
  • Why so urgent?
    Consider One High Enrollment Course:
    English Composition I
    37,226 enrollments / year
    X $100 textbook
    = $3.7 Million + (cost to students)
    What if we looked at 100, 200, 300 high enrollment courses?
    http://rtnl.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/thinker21.jpg
  • Impact on Students?
    Work longer hours
    Additional debt
    Credit card debt
    Not purchase textbooks
  • Math in Society (Open Textbook)
    David Lipmann, Professor @ Pierce College
    3,972 annual enrollments
    Textbooks savings to RTC students?
    List of open and free textbooksthat may be suitable for use in community college courses
  • Redesigning 81 System Courses
    High enrollment, gatekeeper and pre-college courses
    Not mandated curriculum (choice)
    Faculty centered – faculty will redesign courses
    Low cost instructional materials
    Improve course completion rates
    Digital (remix, take chunks, online)
    Lower textbook, time, and travel costs for students
    use open educational resources, library resources and other high quality, low cost instruction materials that will reduce textbook costs for students.
    Open CC Licenses (culture of sharing)
  • Hey Higher Ed!
    We must get rid of our “not invented here” attitude regarding others’ content
    move to: "proudly borrowed from there"
    Content is not a strategic advantage
    Nor can we (or our students) afford it
  • “As uncomfortable a proposition as this new openness may be for some, I believe it is the future of higher education.”
    In web 2.0, everything is public & higher education needs to get used to it.
    Future of Openness in Education
    David Wiley 2006. Open source, openness, and higher education.
  • What Happens if weDon’t Change?
    Harder to catch-up …
    Or even understand.
    Google, Amazon, Apple, Open Source,
    Open Content, Open Textbooks…

  • System Strategic Technology Plan
    Access for all students and all colleges
    Single, centrally funded solutions for common systems
    Rule of 1: do it once
    Rule of 0: don’t do it
    Don’t build software, don’t host servers
    Retain local branding and admin control
    All instructional technologies are architected to make it easy to share content.

  • NEW HE Models are En Route
  • Choices:
    (1) Open up and
    leverage global input
    OR
    (2) close up shop
  • Think Big Crazy Ideas….
    We could share all of our instructional digital resources including: courses, textbooks and library resources with the world… and, more important, use global digital materials.
    We could use common teaching & learning, student services, and administrative technologies and support services.
    We could design courses that enable and encourage students to contribute, change, remix course content.
  • Parting Thought…
    Is the network to the point where we can challenge traditional models of pedagogy, publishing, student services, and our existing administrative business processes?
    If so, what would you change in your department? How would you use digital technologies to help students learn and accomplish their dreams?
