  5. 5. Technology skills are in demand, but they change fast! Slide from: Don Presant –
  6. 6. 8 ontario • Nearly all Canadian institutions offer online education. • Double-digit growth in enrollments. Average online education enrollment growth for universities has been about 10% per year and about 15% per year for colleges. • Online courses found in almost every academic subject. More than 50% of the universities reported having courses in Arts and Social Sciences, Business, Education, Science, and Nursing. Some findings from the national Online Learning survey Reported by Russ Poulin, WCET Frontiers, – October 19, 2017
  7. 7. 9 ontario • Online learning is a strategic asset. More than 2/3 rated online learning as important for the institution, long-term. Less than half (14%) have implemented or are implementing (26%) a strategic plan for online learning, while about a third (32%) are developing a plan. • Blended learning is common. Nearly three-fourths (72%) of reporting institutions offer blended/hybrid courses. About 12% of institutions report that more than 30% of their courses are offered in this mode of instruction. • Less use of MOOCs and OER than expected. British Columbia and Ontario have been world-wide leaders in promoting open content. 5% of responding institutions use OER extensively and 35% report moderate OER use. Some findings from the national Online Learning survey

  23. 23. How do we more broadly address the experiential learning desires of students? Are there technological solutions for recognizing experiences? How do we provide students with relevant real-world projects as practical experiences? How to we allow employers to audition student talent while the students are still in school? How can we provide managed environments for supporting experiential learning?
  24. 24. Rethinking Recognition of learning Empowering the “t-shaped student” through skill recognition • Co-curricular records • Internships and practicums • Community volunteer programs • Self-directed practical experiences Enabling and authenticating “can-do” skills and competencies

  51. 51. 64 Robin DeRosa Plymouth State University – New Hampshire The Open Anthology of Early American Literature “I launched the open textbook project over a summer, and because I teach at a public university where I had no easy access to graduate assistants or funding, I hired a bunch of undergrad students and recent alums, and paid them out of my own pocket to assist me. Turns out, most of them were willing to work for free (I didn’t let them, though what I paid was low because it was all I could spare), and turns out the whole endeavor of building the work turned out to be transformative to my own pedagogy and to the course that followed.”
