Bimodal Flexible (ByFlex) Course Design
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Short Description:
Higher education institutions are realizing that students want and need flexible options for attending and participating in courses. During the COVID pandemic, the world saw that many jobs could be done online. We also saw how many college and university courses and programs could be completed online and still produce quality graduates. This set a precedent for employees to expect more flexible options upon their return to the workplace. It also set a precedent for students to request more flexible options upon their return to campuses. Educational institutions can reach more students by offering flexible learning options and therefore, increase revenue and maintain growth, so it is an attractive option. Students prefer flexible course design because it allows them to customize a work-school-life balance that will support them in meeting their personal, work, and academic goals. This book asks questions about whether or not trimodal flexible (HyFlex) courses are worth their costs and challenges and suggests that a bimodal flexible (ByFlex) course design, with fewer challenges, will still meet the students' needs for flexibility and, therefore, may be a better choice. Flexible learning is happening and is probably here to stay!

Volunteers4Europe - An Insight into the World of Volunteering in Europe
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

The comprehensive e-book "Volunteers4Europe" is the result of the European project of the same name, which was carried out from 2018 to 2020. The project, co-financed by the European funding programme Erasmus Plus, focused on the documentation of interesting volunteer activities in the participating partner countries. The project teams from Germany, Estonia, France, Italy and Sweden produced many photo reportages of volunteer activities, which are now all available in this e-book. On more than 600 pages, the multifaceted nature of volunteering in Europe becomes visible. There are examples from civil protection, nature conservation, environmental protection, nature conservation and animal welfare. In addition, many volunteer activities in social areas are presented, for example in senior citizens' work, for people with disabilities, with a migration background or with other disadvantages.
All age groups can volunteer in the most diverse areas. The project teams hope that with this e-book they will not only make visible and acknowledge the enormous achievements of many volunteers, but also that many readers will find inspiration for their own voluntary commitment.

Long Description:
This book is the result of a co-design project in a class in the Masters of Education program at the University of Calgary. The course, and the resulting book, focus primarily on the safe and ethical use of technology in digital learning environments. The course was organized according to four topics based on Farrow’s (2016) Framework for the Ethics of Open Education. Students were asked to review, analyze, and synthesize each topic from three meta-ethical theoretical positions: deontological, consequentialist, and virtue ethical (Farrow, 2016). The chapters in this open educational resource (OER) were co-designed using a participatory pedagogy with the intention to share and mobilize knowledge with a broader audience. The first three chapters in the book discuss specific ethical considerations related to technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) , social networking services (SNS), and 3D printing. The next four chapters shift to a broader discussion of resource sharing, adaptive learning systems, STEM, and assistive technologies. The final two chapters discuss admissions and communications that need to be considered from an institutional perspective. In each of the nine chapters, the authors discuss the connection to the value of technology in education, and practical possibilities of learning technologies for inclusive, participatory, democratic, and pluralistic educational paradigms.
