2023 Compendium of North American Nursing OER
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Short Description:
The aim of this compendium is to provide nurse educators with an easily accessible collection of 25 resources designed to support student learning, particularly within nursing programs.

Long Description:
The aim of this compendium is to provide nurse educators with an easily accessible collection of OER designed to support student learning, particularly within nursing programs.

A search of the Pressbooks directory was undertaken to identify resources for potential inclusion in this compendium. These resources were filtered according to the following inclusion criteria: nursing authorship; North American; published after 2015; and intended for nursing students. Materials were excluded if they were identified as self-published books or were not openly licensed.

This resulted in a total of 25 resources that address areas inclusive of, but not limited to, health assessment, nursing leadership and management, foundational nursing practice skills, and the care of special populations.

The compendium is presented as a tabulation of key elements for each of the 25 resources, adapted from the Faculty Guide for Evaluating Open Education Resources. Five key elements are described relative to the criteria of credibility (i.e., authorship, publisher, year of most recent update), relevance (i.e., title of the open textbook, aim, intended audience, topical foci), accessibility/interactivity (i.e., figure and tables, videos, review questions, total interactive H5P activities), and licensing (i.e., availability for use with attribution).

Users of this compendium are encouraged to consider each of the tabulated elements (e.g. credibility, relevance, accessibility/interactivity, and licensing) to determine the merit of directly accessing a resource for potential inclusion as a supplement in a nursing course.

3D Printing for Repair Guide
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This guide takes the reader through the 3D Printing for Repair (3DP4R) process. It consists of guidelines and tools to create a 3D printable version of spare parts needed for a product repair. 3D printing a spare part is more than just printing the original part. Instead, it is an iterative process in which the part is analysed, redesigned, manufactured, and tested, in order to come to a final part. This guide will describe these four phases in detail. The guide is meant for anybody who is interested in trying to manufacture spare parts with 3D printing technologies, remakers, tinkerers, volunteer repairers, professional repairers, and everyone who is interested in repair initiatives.

AC Circuits
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This eBook was written as the sequel to the eBook titled DC Circuits, which was written in 2016 by Chad Davis.
This eBook covers Alternating Current (AC) circuit theory as well us a brief introduction of electronics. It is
broken up into seven modules. Module 1 covers the basic theory of AC signals. Since only DC sources are used in
the first eBook, details of AC signals such as sinusoidal waveforms (or sine waves), square waves, and triangle
waves are provided. Module 2, titled AC Circuits Math Background, covers the mathematics background needed
for solving AC circuit problems. The background material in Modules 1 and 2 are combined in Module 3 to solve
circuits with AC sources that include resistors, inductors, and capacitors (RLC circuits).

AC Electrical Circuit Analysis: A Practical Approach
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

An essential and practical text for both students and teachers of AC electrical circuit analysis, this text picks up where the companion DC electric circuit analysis text leaves off. Beginning with basic sinusoidal functions, ten chapters cover topics including series, parallel, and series-parallel RLC circuits. Numerous theorems and analysis techniques are examined including superposition, Thévenin's theorem, nodal and mesh analysis, maximum power transfer and more. Other important topics include AC power, resonance, Bode plots and an introduction to three-phase systems. Each chapter begins with a set of chapter objectives and includes a summary and review questions. A total of over 500 end-of-chapter exercises are included. A companion laboratory manual is available.

AI for Teachers - an Open Textbook
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

AI and education are not just topics for industry. The education system should be prepared to identify how best to make use of AI in the classroom, reassure teachers, make them responsible users and start an effective teacher-training program. The goal of this textbook is to give teachers the knowledge necessary for deciding if, where and how AI can help.
• How can artificial intelligence impact learning and teaching in my classroom?
• Can it help me do what I want to do with my students?
• How can it change the dynamics and interactions I have with my students?
• How do I even know when it is being used correctly or incorrectly?
• And, what should I be aware of if I want to put it to good use?

APSC 100 Tiny House Project – Simple Book Publishing
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This book was created to support Project 677 in APSC 100 in the Faculty of Engineering at Queen’s University during the winter term of 2019, and is being updated and expanded to support Project 725 in Winter 2021. It provides a publicly visible collection of information that will help with this design project. Use of these resources elsewhere under the CC license is encouraged, but not supported. The contents of this book will grow and change over the term. Please fell free to add your comments or questions in any of the sections and I will try to address them.

The resources in this book are not comprehensive and are only intended to provide a starting point to explore design options. In particular, there will be many examples illustrated by single products that are not the only, or even the best solutions for a particular application. You will need to go well beyond the contents of this book to make your independent design decisions.

The models used for building heat transfer are very much simplified for an introduction to the ideas and should be used cautiously. Design of actual building systems should be undertaken in much greater detail. The target here is to use models that don’t require you to learn any new physics.

The secondary reason this book exists is to give me some practice using PressBooks to develop Open Educational Resources (OER). Some of the files that are linked from this book are on Google Drive, and some are on GitHub.

ASURE Immune Response and Behavior 2020
Restricted Use
Copyright Restricted
Rating
0.0 stars

Our class is part of Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Research Experience (ASURE) at Indiana University Bloomington. This program, which is part of the College of Arts and Sciences, includes a two-semester lab experience where students design and conduct their own authentic research projects. All of the projects described in this eBook were designed and carried out by small groups of students in their first through second year of college as part of their course work in the ASURE Immune Response and Behavior Lab. The ASURE class of 2019-2020 certainly faced some unique challenges. In the spring of 2020, we were abruptly sent home to continue our coursework remotely. This interruption reduced the students’ time to collect data in the lab, but gave them the opportunity to learn R and other data analysis skills. In the fall of 2020, all of the students were able to return to campus and continue work on their projects, though there were several interruptions as students were forced to isolate and/or quarantine. Nevertheless, the students were very dedicated and persisted in their work, which is evident in their final projects.

Short Description:
An interactive approach to conveying the values of academic integrity, clarifying the meaning of plagiarism, and introducing the basics of citations.

Long Description:
After working through the Academic Integrity pressbook, students will be able to explain the six fundamental values of academic integrity, identify unethical academic behaviours, and will be familiar with the university’s policy and procedures for academic integrity violations. They will have developed an understanding of plagiarism as a form of misrepresentation, will be able to describe how citations work and will be aware of quoting and paraphrasing properly. Students will be able to explain the university services available to them if they need assistance with their work.
