__Newspaper publishers, crippled by the digital content revolution that is destroying their business model, have banded together to ask Ottawa to create a $350-million fund to aid the print and online media industry. _ The publishers say they are only asking for the kind of support that governments already funnel to other media._

#Canada150 #OER @Naza_Djafarova @ChangSchool _ An #OER initiative created by Digital Education Strategies at The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education_ The course materials are available as an open educational resource (OER) through Ryerson University Library’s Archives and Special Collections. _ https://de.ryerson.ca/oer/canada150/

#OER With the support of both the Ministry of Advanced Education and the Hewlett Foundation, BCcampus will distribute two grants (maximum $35,000.00) to BC Institutions committed to the development of a “Zed Cred” (Z Degree) Program. With the funds, Institutions will not only develop pathways to credential by adopting and adapting pre-existing OER, the funds may also be used to create new OER necessary for the program. The Institutions will also be required to package and publish their degree paths such that other Institutions from BC and beyond can borrow from their progress. Any learning materials created under the Zed Cred program will hold a Creative Commons BY license and must be fully editable. The programs chosen must demonstrate significant student savings and impact across the B.C. system.  https://open.bccampus.ca/zed-credz-degree-grants/

      __”Despite being one of the 450 employees and contractors that were exchanged in turn for the $70-$80 million HMH plans to incur at human expense — I still find it impossible to ultimately turn my back on the Editorial & Publishing industries. Though one more savvy would just pivot to an area that is more tech-based (and not that I am averse; most of my experience is in Digital Publishing anyway), I still believe there is a place in this industry for me. Despite the slim odds; at the end of the day if one is passionate about their career path, layoffs like HMH’s are only setbacks on the long and arduous road to success.” Best, Courtney Peters https://www.linkedin.com/in/courtney-peters-a0a40b24/recent-activity/

        Learning technology can help graduates avoid the hidden costs of student loans. David Levin explains how for CNBC: https://lnkd.in/e2nwQnf

        College grads saddled with loan debt as they enter workforce: Survey

        _ Several [unconfirmed] Stats via David’s responses – approx 45% at 4yr Institutions & 70% at 2yr Institutions do not graduate, therefore many Students have accumulated some debt but are without a Degree. Students who don’t graduate find it more difficult to find jobs – more difficult to pay-off student debt. Q: “How much of the cost of education these days are the books?” A: “About 1.5% – 2%”

                    Hi Folks! One week left to apply for a product manager role on my team. Really looking for someone with digital media experience. If you have worked in broadcast or journalism I’m really, really interested in talking to you. At a time when journalism has been threatened by economic forces – with an estimated 10,000 jobs lost in the past decade – TVO provides more context and analysis on the issues that matter. It’s also a great place to work!

                      This talk was presented at Coventry University as part of my visiting fellowship at the Disruptive Media Learning Lab

                      Every year since 2010, I’ve undertaken a fairly massive project in which I’ve reviewed the previous twelve months’ education and technology news in order to write ten articles covering “the top ed-tech trends.” This is how I spend my November and December – researching and writing a series that usually tops out at about 75,000 words – which I didn’t realize until print copies were made for my visit here is about 240 pages.

                      Now, all those words and pages make this quite a different undertaking than most year-in-review stories, than much of the “happy new year” clickbait that tend to offer a short, bulleted list of half a dozen or so technologies that are new enough or cool enough to hype with headlines like “these are the six tools poised to revolutionize education.” To be honest, these sorts of articles are partly why I undertake this project – although each year, when I’m about 15,000 words in, I do ask myself “why am I doing this?!” (This talk will hopefully serve as an explanation for you and a nice reminder for me.)

However the spokesman said the board was freezing the chief executive’s base pay for 2017, the second year running, and would cut his long-term performance-related share award to reflect Pearson’s lower long-term profit guidance. The Financial Times _ https://lnkd.in/ezvCiET _

                      Pre-tax losses spiralled from £433m in 2015 to a record £2.6bn, including a £2.5bn [non-cash] write-off of goodwill dating back to Pearson’s acquisitions of US education business National Computer Services and the publisher Simon & Schuster at the turn of the century. Mr Fallon said that after a “challenging” year the company is looking ahead to operating profit of between £570m to £630m in 2017. _ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/02/24/pearson-sell-publishing-stake-losses-deepen/ _ 24 February 2017 Telegraph

                      OEP and open pedagogy

                      For some time now I’ve been paying attention not just to the nature of the work being done by many in the global open education community, but also to differences in emphasis across different sectors and regions. For example, much foundational work in open textbooks is rooted in and continues in North America (e.g. BCcampus Open Textbook project and Z-Degree programmes). More recently, a flourishing movement has emerged around open pedagogy (check out #openped) led by innovative educators such as Robin deRosaKaren CangialosiScott RobisonRajiv JhangianiDavid Wiley, and others.

                      __The Problem With Facts by Tim Harford . . . But Curiosity Is the Cure for Misinformation by Michael Caulfield _ https://lnkd.in/eawi96n _ _ https://lnkd.in/e33HZDG _

                      Tim Hartford : We journalists and policy wonks can’t force anyone to pay attention to the facts. We have to find a way to make people want to seek them out. Curiosity is the seed from which sensible democratic decisions can grow. It seems to be one of the only cures for politically motivated reasoning but it’s also, into the bargain, the cure for a society where most people just don’t pay attention to the news because they find it boring or confusing.

                      Michael Caulfield : But this is what wiki does, as opposed to blogging. It puts you in a learning mode vs. an argumentative mode. You can feel it when it happens, physically, when it lets down the rhetorical defenses you’ve set up. Ward used to call it Egoless Wiki. When people let down defenses enough to get there, to delight in the investigation more than the result, that’s when you’re in the zone. And I think it correlates with Tim’s point — that to have truth win we can’t fight for truth — we have to fight for curiosity and a bit of egolessness. We have to ask people not to argue their point, but to tell us what they know. In the end that’s the only thing that that’s going to save us.

                      Michael Caulfield Misinformation May Be the Disease But Curiosity Is the Cure

                      __eCampusOntario has entered into an agreement with BCcampus, British Columbia’s online learning agency. We will “clone and rebrand for Ontario” the existing open textbook site operating in British Columbia to provide a starter library and deployment system that will house over 150 peer-reviewed open textbooks. Along with the open textbook library, Ontario higher education users will also be able to participate in the peer review system. The initial cloned system will be available in May 2017. __ eCampusOntario is seeking expressions of interest from Ontario post-secondary institutions to design and assemble a prototype open education publishing infrastructure to provide system capacity and support a growing network of Ontario faculty and instructional developers who will begin to design, develop and deploy interactive open educational resources (OER) for teaching and learning __ https://www.ecampusontario.ca/App_Content/Resource/docs/2e42dfa1-457a-44e4-87cb-1bbaeedeba15/eCO%20EOI%20Open%20Publishing%20Infrastructure%20EN.pdf

                      As it relates to business, if you are only going to listen to one Ted Radio Hour in the next year, this is the one. Notwithstanding the business angle it is a fascinating podcast. I have attached two links below to get you to the podcast……enjoy!

                      NPR Ted Radio Hour  MARCH 10, 2017

                      Whether you’re choosing spaghetti sauce or a life partner, making decisions can be paralyzing. This hour, TED speakers explore how we make the choices we make, and how we learn to live with them.

                      Congrats, Louis! Coincidentally, this very evening I had taken some 30-year-old issues of ‘Studio’ Magazine (Canada’s late graphic arts mag) out of storage. Great to remember those times, and to live through the early days of digital art – so exciting to see what a top traditionally-trained designer could do with it. And wonderful to see you continue to be (deservedly) recognized.

                      It’s fitting to talk about Adobe Illustrator’s 30th anniversary with two people who have been the bedrock of the Adobe Type team for the last 30 years: our Principal Type Designer Robert Slimbach, who celebrated his 30th anniversary at Adobe at the start of this month, and David Lemon, who retired last month after being with Adobe Type for just over 30 years as well.

During the 1960s, artists and engineers came together in a series of formal collaborations. Besides creating interesting artistic works, these efforts also built an infrastructure for future art & technology collaborations and helped forge a new creative culture. _

For example, Cengage is number 1 in market share for the Australian higher-ed market, and local versions of MindTap are being created to meet student demands. [Cengage MindTap ACE w/ OER] Staff: Over the course of FY 17, Cengage’s U.S. headcount grew by 7%. The product and tech headcount grew by 13%. There are currently 60 open spots on the technology side in Boston. Product Growth: The company saw strong growth in their digital courseware with a 10% increase over last year in student activations during the first 3 quarters of FY 17. Standalone digital sales are up 16% year-to-date. Also, MindTap, the company’s flagship digital learning platform, grew almost 38% year-over-year in terms of units and revenue.

                              NM: You guys acquired WebAssign, can you tell me a little more about that? What drove that decision and what you guys hope to get out of it? [-] WebAssign had spotted another very interesting collaboration with OpenStax, which is a provider of open educational resources. They basically go out and curate resources that are available for free on the internet. They have developed a product together with OpenStax and that was something that we see is a significant opportunity for us as well. Because we believe that open educational resources are a part of the landscape in education right, and for some it’s actually very appropriate to have open educational resources as part of the digital solution.

                                                The Federal Court of Canada has issued a massive damage award in the first major Canadian digital lock copyright ruling involving circumvention of technological protection measures.  The ruling, which is the first to conduct an extensive examination of the anti-circumvention rules established in 2012, adopts expansive interpretations to the digital lock protections and narrow views of the exceptions. The case confirms that Canada has tough anti-piracy laws with one of the most aggressive digital lock laws in the world and will fuel calls to re-examine the effectiveness of the anti-circumvention exceptions in the 2017 copyright review.

                                                OER’s Road Ahead is Paved with Publisher Platforms | From the Bell Tower

                                                OER’s Road Ahead is Paved with Publisher Platforms By Steven Bell

                                                February 9, 2017

                                                “Academic librarians are pleased with the progress they’ve made in leading their campuses to recognize the value of Open Educational Resources (OER). _Now publishers are responding to OER with new learning platforms. It may be time for a new strategy.” Steven Bell

                                                [-]

                                                These Platforms Can’t Be Ignored

                                                It may be in our nature to rail against publisher platforms, and some librarians may believe it is their responsibility as social justice advocates to demonize publishers for co-opting and bastardizing OER, as some journal publishers have corrupted open access. Breaking commercial publishers’ total control of learning content with the OER sledgehammer was neither easy nor inexpensive—and despite modest success, commercial textbooks still dominate. According to open education advocate David Wiley, it took years of effort and millions of dollars to create and introduce the OER we have today. Perhaps most difficult to overcome was faculty’s own reliance on commercial textbooks, to convince them to adopt OER. As supplemental learning content has exponentially expanded—slides, test banks, self-grading quizzes, and more—convincing faculty to adopt OER has only gotten harder. As Wiley puts it:

                                                An OER advocate that walks into a faculty office and argues for them to trade their current arrangement (which increases the speed with which students receive feedback and decreases the time faculty spend grading) for static OER is going to sound like they understand very little about the realities of teachers and students. And they’re not going to be a very successful advocate.
