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.

__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 _

    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.)

    __Pearson chief executive John Fallon total remuneration rose from £1.26m in 2015 to £1.5m last year, even as the educational publisher slumped to its biggest ever loss and its shares fell to a seven-year low. 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

    _ This post is a summary of some my reflections following the 3-day OE Global conference, particularly with respect to OEP and open pedagogy.

    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.

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

    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.

    __ Patrick McCray gave a talk titled “Re-Wiring Art & Technology in the 1960s” based on the research he is conducting for a forthcoming book. 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. _

            __[-] there has been more growth as the trend toward digital education continues. 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.
