Robin DeRosa and Dan Blickensderfer  Key principles of Open Labs

What Makes an Open Lab ‘Open’?

As public universities divert resources into new kinds of learning spaces, they should promote collaborative and mutually enriching connections among students and institutions, write Robin DeRosa and Dan Blickensderfer.

__#OER_ Blackboard Classroom delivers a comprehensive digital learning environment designed specifically to address the needs of K-12 education _ Teachers have numerous options for engaging students with interactive content and a global, cross-platform learning object repository.

__HMH has essentially dismantled its paperback program for the children’s division. In its place, according to a company spokesperson, HMH has created a structure for editors to oversee the entire publication process of their books, from hardcover acquisition through to paperback publication. “At HMH BFYR we’re positioning ourselves to build on our tremendous legacy and successes and invest in new opportunities,” Cat Onder, senior v-p and publisher of HMH Books for Young Readers, said in a statement. “Our moving forward strategy is to empower editors to oversee all editions of their books for a more focused and streamlined publishing process.” The layoffs also affected editors and marketing, licensing, and publicity staff in the adult trade, culinary, and reference divisions. Cuts were anticipated this week in the educational publishing group. An initial round of layoffs began in March. via HMH Lays Off 11 from Children’s Division _

A few of the projects that I completed in 2016 in my role as a Long Document Layout Specialist (typesetter in old vernacular). Last year I had the pleasure of creating the tech art and layout on a number of textbooks, PowerPoints, and new a new skill for 2016 conversion of print to fully-accessible website. My resume now includes conversion from Epub to print and from print to web. Thanks to my clients for all the great projects. If you need any help, just get in touch!!!

The Ryerson Press Collection, a collection of some 3000 titles dating back to 1862, was officially donated to Ryerson University Library Archives and Special Collections. To find out more about this amazing collection, check out my blog at https://lnkd.in/eBQWw-h

__A book about sharing and open business models “We analyzed the revenue models, customer segments, and value propositions of each endeavor. We searched for ways that putting their content under Creative Commons licenses helped boost sales or increase reach. Using traditional measures of economic success, we tried to map these business models in a way that meaningfully incorporated the impact of Creative Commons. In our interviews, we dug into the motivations, the role of CC licenses, modes of revenue generation, definitions of success.” _ https://lnkd.in/eSii83g

__”Changes in [Florida] state law have meant changes to the [K-12] book buying process for school districts around the state. Districts are required to publish proposed materials for a 30-day review period, during which parents can look over them and file any objections with the district if they see issues within any materials on accuracy or bias.” __Some may be interested to know there are no OER materials listed, in fact, likely one would find that these very same textbooks appeared on the 2007 list.

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!

Faculty will not volunteer to create #OER that For-Profits package-up for sale to students, likely?

__”The open education community is not unified around goals and priorities. It will be interesting to see how various participants react to the commercial success of Lumen (and, for that matter, OpenStax). Interesting times.” Michael Feldstein _ Lumen and Follett: _ https://lnkd.in/emvQPqS _ Stephen Downes posts _ https://lnkd.in/edJbfma and _ https://lnkd.in/eadhDKk _

__Follett and Lumen Learning today announced a partnership to lower costs and improve student success through the use of academic content and courseware based entirely on open educational resources (OER). Standard pricing for Lumen course support fees is $25 per student enrolled in course sections using Waymaker and Lumen OHM. Students pay Lumen’s course support fees through Follett’s IncludED™ program. Dedicated, workshop-style training services are available upon request, and may be recommended for larger groups. _ http://follett.com/lumen/ _ In his Blog today, David Wiley fleshes out specifics of the new option which makes it possible for individual faculty to choose to work with Lumen, which hasn’t been possible due to Lumen’s institutional-focus model _ https://lnkd.in/edmjcVG _

__Publishers and Open-Resource Advocates Square Off on the Future of Course Content By Goldie Blumenstyk April 17, 2017 At a friendly yet spirited debate last month over the pros and cons of open educational resources, publishers and OER advocates agreed on at least one thing: The “old” textbook market is broken. But that’s pretty much where the common ground ended. _Article in The Chronicle of Higher Education _ https://lnkd.in/ePKb7Up _ Listen to the Debate _ https://lnkd.in/e7QuWhz _
