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.

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?

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/. Speaker: Ned Zimmerman What is WPCampus?

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.

OpenMed Course Webinar Module 5 - Open Educational Practices
Speaker: Catherine Cronin, Centre for Excellence in Learning & Teaching (CELT), National University of Ireland, Galway As educators and education professionals, we work in contexts and publics which are increasingly open and networked. Boundaries are blurring between physical and digital learning environments, formal and informal learning, educators and learners. In this webinar, Catherine will explore these challenges in the context of current research and practice in open education, focusing specifically on open educational practices (OEP). OEP is a broad descriptor of practices including 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 the use of OEP in higher education. Catherine’s research addresses this gap. She has explored the digital and pedagogical strategies of university educators in relation to OEP, concluding that openness is complex, personal, contextual, and continuously negotiated. In this webinar, Catherine briefly explores current issues in open and higher education, presents a summary of her research, and invites participants to share their own ideas and questions regarding the use of OEP in their specific contexts.

TEDxVillanovaU - Michele Pistone - The Future of Higher Education
This talk discusses the future of higher education, which has been based on the same educational model for more than 100 years. But the status quo is about to be disrupted, by the Internet and those educators -- including new competitors -- who would unleash its potential. Higher education institutions at a whole have not adequately recognized the threat to the status quo, or come close to responding adequately to it. In truth, responding adequately will be very difficult, because higher ed face a classic innovator's dilemma. Michele Pistone guides law students as they evolve from student to lawyer at the Villanova School of Law. She founded its current clinical program and is the Director of the Clinic for Asylum, Refugee and Emigrant Services (CARES). Through CARES she and her students provide free legal representation to asylum seekers fleeing persecution, torture, unlawful imprisonment and other forms of mistreatment. Her clinic's clients are survivors of human rights abuses directed at them because of their religion, their political opinions, or other beliefs and characteristics that we as a nation have always sought to protect. Among the clients that she has represented are former child soldiers from Sierra Leone and Uganda; political dissidents from Belarus, Cameroon, and Afghanistan; women's rights activists from Nepal and Kenya; children's rights activists from Peru; and religious minorities from Iraq; among countless others. She is a lifetime learner, always curious about other cultures and ideas, and loves to create anything, from tasty meals, to crafts, to engaging scholarship.

Are you interested in helping veterans navigate higher education and training programs to help them make the adjustment from military life to college/civilian life? Then this webinar is for you. During this Wednesday Webinar, we will explore a program that is doing just that! The VetCorps (part of the Veterans Conservation Corps within the Washington State Department of Veteran Affairs [WDVA]) aims to aid in the success of veterans by providing them with support, resources and information that meet their unique needs. All WDVA VetCorps members are either veterans or spouses of veterans who: 1. Assist veterans and family members with their educational needs at colleges. Several VetCorps members work on Base to assist Wounded Warriors and other Service Members. 2. Provide resource information about navigating federal, state, and local veteran's resources. 3. Engage veterans in a new Mission and provide them with a sense of Unit once again. The VetCorps helps veterans achieve their transition goals by engaging them and their family members in service to their community and fellow veterans. VetCorps is funded through an AmeriCorps grant. You can learn more about this program by visiting http://www.dva.wa.gov/vetcorps.html

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 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

What is LEAN HIGHER EDUCATION? What does LEAN HIGHER EDUCATION mean? LEAN HIGHER EDUCATION meaning - LEAN HIGHER EDUCATION definition - LEAN HIGHER EDUCATION explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Lean Higher Education (LHE) refers to the adaptation of lean thinking to higher education, typically with the goal of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of operations. Lean, originally developed at the Toyota Motor Corporation, is a management philosophy that emphasizes "respect for people" and "continuous improvement" as core tenets. Lean encourages employees at all organizational levels to re-imagine services from a customer's point of view, removing process steps that do not add value and emphasizing steps that add the most value. While the concept of "customers" and "products" is controversial in higher education settings, there are certainly diverse stakeholders who are interested in the success of colleges and universities, the most common of which are students, faculty, administrators, potential employers and various levels of government. Lean in higher education has been applied both to administrative and academic services. Balzer (2010) described such initiatives within university settings, including the critical factors for success and ways to measure progress. He noted that LHE can be effective to respond to higher education's heightened expectations, reducing expenses in an era of rising costs, meeting demands of public accountability, and leveraging institutional resources to fulfill the educational, scholarship, and outreach missions of higher education. A comprehensive literature review examining Lean's impact on higher education has been published. The authors reported that Lean has a significant and measurable impact when used to improve academic and administrative operations. Such improvements are effective at the department/unit level or throughout and entire institution. However, the authors noted that implementing Lean is a serious undertaking that is most impactful if it involves long-term, strategic planning. Though the application of Lean management in higher education is more prevalent in administrative processes (e.g., admissions, registration, HR, and procurement) it also has been applied to academic processes (e.g., course design and teaching, improving degree programs, student feedback, and handling of assignments) in an increasing number of cases. Pioneering academic institutions who have implemented Lean include: Cardiff University (Wales), Edinburgh Napier University (Scotland), Michigan Technological University (USA), Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (USA), University of Aberdeen (Scotland), University of Central Oklahoma (USA), University of St. Andrews (Scotland), Winona State University (USA) and others. A group of universities in the U.K. have formed LeanHEHub . In Scotland, the Scottish Higher Education Improvement Network (SHEIN) is a collaborative network of HE professionals working within the area of continuous improvement. SHEIN exists to encourage the sharing of resources and best practice, online and face-to-face. Of great importance in the application of Lean management in any organization is the recognition and daily practice of the Lean principles: "Continuous Improvement" and "Respect for People." The "Respect for People" principle is challenging for management to implement, because most managers have risen to their level of responsibility based on their superior "fire-fighting" skills. With Lean, managers are coaches who guide their employees through a problem solving process. The employee learns how to ask themselves the questions that enable them to solve problems on their own, with the same or better quality that the manager would have achieved. ...

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.
