Join Us Tuesday, 4/13, for “Let Them Talk!” Engaging Students in Productive Discourse Online

Tuesday, April 13th

10 AM – 11 AM

Register

Inquiry-based, active, and culturally responsive instruction are all dependent upon learners sharing their ideas, questions, opinions, reactions, and confusions. Yet how do we set the stage, especially online, for the learning to be truly driven by participants’ talk? How are we inviting, and how are we listening to, student voice?

Please join us for this thought-provoking session presented by 3CSN coordinator Nika Hogan (Pasadena City College). The presentation will be followed by discussion.

This event is part of our Tuesday Equity in Action: Praxis Sessions lineup. The schedule for upcoming sessions, past sessions, and recordings may be found here.

ASCCC Open Educational Resources Initiative (OERI)

Greetings WLAC community! As the Open Educational Resources Liaison, it is my role to share communications from the ASCCC Open Educational Resources Initiative (OERI) with you. Please read on to learn about upcoming events that are open to all and an opportunity for faculty to play a role in increasing OER consideration and adoption by others in their discipline.

If I can assist you in your considering OER– or answer any OER-related questions, please let me know.

• ASCCC OERI Wants You •

The ASCCC OERI is still seeking faculty for various roles. While faculty with OER experience are preferred, we are prepared to support faculty who are new to OER and interested in playing a leadership role.

 

The OERI is currently seeking faculty to review OER in a number of disciplines and Discipline Leads for Spring 2021. If you are interested in any of these opportunities – or in OER work more generally – please submit an application. If your discipline is one that we are not currently focusing on, your application lets us know not only that you are interested, but that faculty in your discipline are interested.

 

Additional information about the Discipline Lead role is available on the application page.

 

• OER for Your Consideration •

Each month the OERI plans to highlight OER for your consideration. Presently, the products from RFP II are under review, but many of the ASCCC OERI RFP 2020 – Draft Products are available for faculty to access and consider. If you have any feedback or questions about any of the resources, please let us know.

This month, we’d like to highlight two of the resources from RFP 2020 that are currently under review. Both are housed in LibreTexts, a platform that is designed to facilitate faculty customization of a resource.

Race and Ethnic Relations in the U.S.: An Intersectional Approach – this OER is intended to an appropriate text for C-ID SOCI 150 (Introduction to Race and Ethnicity) and C-ID SJS 110 (Introduction to Social Justice). The authors describe the resource as follows:

This open text was compiled by six diverse, community college sociology faculty from Long Beach City College, Cerritos College, and Rancho Santiago College. With an eye on social justice and intersectionality, the text provides a sociological analysis of the history, demographics, and contemporary experiences of the following race-ethnic groups: African Americans, Asian American Pacific Islanders, Euro Americans, Latinx, Native Americans, Middle Eastern Americans, and immigrants. This text is suitable for a sociology course on race and ethnic relations or a social justice studies introductory course.

Resources for Botany/Plant Diversity and Ecology (C-ID BIOL 155) –

Botany (Ha, Morrow, and Algiers)

A Photographic Atlas for Botany (Morrow)

Making OER Discoverable in OneSearch

From the Council of California Community Colleges Chief Librarians

By Ryan Edwards, West Los Angeles College

Introduction

As West Los Angeles College’s Systems Librarian and new Open Educational Resources (OER) liaison, I want to increase the visibility and use of OER in both our library systems as well as the Canvas online learning management system. Our library systems, Ex Libris’s Alma, a cloud-based library services platform and Primo, ExLibris’s discovery solution are used by more than 2,000 libraries across the United States and around the world. To increase the visibility and use of OER resources, I saw the opportunities to activate OER resources in Alma and exploit them Primo’s Resource Recommender service, which allows one to recommend resources based on searchable tags that are configured in Alma to expose databases, websites, people, library information, and library guides in Primo.

Collections and Resource Recommender

Upon performing a search on Google for “OER and Primo”, I discovered via the SUNY Libraries Consortium Alma Discovery/Primo VE website an open access training video and PowerPoint presentation, “Making OER Discoverable in Primo.” The presentation described what Open Educational Resources are, how to identify and evaluate OER in Alma and Primo VE, and how to increase the discoverability of OER in Primo. I learned that I could activate some OER collections in the ExLibris CDI (Central Discovery Index), including the Open Textbook Catalog, OpenStax College, and Open SUNY Textbooks collections. I also discovered that I could use Primo’s built-in Resource Recommender to highlight OER collections and content not included in Alma or CDI, boost OER content, promote my library’s OER libguide with a custom search box to search just open-access content, as well as promote myself as West’s new OER librarian. I could also tag content with keywords to make finding OER in OneSearch easier. Ultimately, as a district, we decided not to activate Unpaywall as Unpaywall’s linking was a bit spotty.

Resource Recommender Tutorial by Ryan Edwards

OER Webinar

I was asked by Eric Ichon, WLAC Dean of Distance Learning, to co-lead an OER webinar for the LACCD Distance Education Committee. Cyrus Helf, Multimedia Specialist and I developed and co-delivered an Open Educational Resources (OER) Zoom webinar on December 4, 2020.

OER-Webinar from Ryan Edwards on Vimeo.

As you know, many of our students struggle to afford required textbooks for their classes. In the future West hopes to be able to offer some degrees and certificates without any required textbook costs. The webinar covered what OER is, the benefits of using OER, and how to search for OER resources via OneSearch as well as West’s OER Resources page. In addition, the webinar covered finding OER course sites in the Canvas Commons, previewing OER course sites before import and importing as well as what to do after importing, including adjusting dates, choosing/creating assignments, editing content, scanning and fixing links, deleting content, and structuring content in the modules.

LibreTexts

Recently one of West’s Mathematics professors, Henri Feiner, shared his digital textbook Beginning/Intermediate Algebra that he authored with a Creative Commons license. West’s Multimedia Specialist helped him upload his book to the Canvas Commons. In addition, Professor Feiner shared his “Beginning/Intermediate Algebra” book with LibreTexts.

History of LibreTexts by Delmar Larsen

I discovered that LibreTexts, home to the largest collection of open educational resources online, was not indexed in the CDI nor listed in the Alma Community Zone (CZ) as a collection to activate.  So, I decided to submit a new idea to ExLibris’s Content Idea Exchange to add LibreTexts vast collection to Ex Libris’s CDI.

Jeffrey Karlsen, from Sacramento City College suggested that it might be more useful to have LibreTexts added to the Alma CZ as bibliographic records.  That way libraries could add LibreTexts ebooks and course materials to course reserve lists in Alma and Primo.  So, I submitted this other new idea to the ExLibris Content Idea Exchange.

Since I’m on both the CCC Discovery and UX Work Group and the ELUNA Primo Product Working Group, I decided to promote the two ideas to add LibreTexts to the CDI and Alma CZ. I emailed both the Alma-L and Primo-L listservs to promote the ideas to ExLibris’s Alma and Primo customer base. After Lauren Saslow, Los Angeles Community College District’s ILS Administrator, helped me email all the 56 librarians across the District, I also decided to email the California Community College’s LSP-ALL listserv to promote the ideas to all of the community colleges in California’s Community College system. My strategies worked! My idea to add LibreTexts to the CDI received 186 votes and the other idea to add LibreTexts to the Alma CZ received 89 votes. Ex Libris is now investigating adding the LibreTexts content alongside the inquiry to ingest the content in their Discovery products. In addition, to make sure that Ex Libris reviews adding LibreTexts to their products, I submitted a new content request to the New Enhancement Request System (NERS).

Conclusion

Hopefully, my efforts activating certain Alma open-access collections, implementing Resource Recommender, and delivering and co-delivering Resource Recommender and OER webinars should help promote OER visibility and usage in Primo (OneSearch) and Canvas. I discovered that collaborating with other librarians across the LACCD district and the California Community College system along with emailing both the Alma-L and Primo-L listservs helped to get Ex Libris to review LibreTexts OER content for possible ingestion into both the CDI and across Ex Libris’s discovery products. These collaborative efforts could be particularly useful in the future for introducing and promoting new ideas for Ex Libris’s review.Library Technology
