Criminal Law
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Criminal Law uses a two-step process to augment learning, called the applied approach. First, after building a strong foundation from scratch, Criminal Law introduces you to crimes and defenses that have been broken down into separate components. It is so much easier to memorize and comprehend the subject matter when it is simplified this way. However, becoming proficient in the law takes more than just memorization. You must be trained to take the laws you have studied and apply them to various fact patterns. Most students are expected to do this automatically, but application must be seen, experienced, and practiced before it comes naturally. Thus the second step of the applied approach is reviewing examples of the application of law to facts after dissecting and analyzing each legal concept. Some of the examples come from cases, and some are purely fictional. All the examples are memorable, even quirky, so they will stick in your mind and be available when you need them the most (like during an exam). After a few chapters, you will notice that you no longer obsess over an explanation that doesn’t completely make sense the first time you read it—you will just skip to the example. The examples clarify the principles for you, lightening the workload significantly.

Inclusive Practices: Ideas for Classroom Integration From Millersville Classrooms to Yours
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

This book begins with a discussion of key concepts we think will help readers understand the assignments included. We see the chapters exploring key concepts connecting diversity and inclusion work to faculty-centered spaces to support student-centered learning space design. Most of the chapters share an inclusive assignment or inclusive practice for readers to adapt and adopt into their own learning spaces. This books is designed to support teachers implementing inclusive practices in their learning spaces.

We invite readers to consider how our definitions support and expand the work of diversity and inclusion offices at their own institutions. We invite readers to consider how our definitions help them use and/or remix the inclusive assignments shared to further their inclusive excellence work.

Preface

Neural Foundations of Communication was developed for undergraduate neurology classes in the study of communication sciences and disorders. Anatomy and Physiology is a prerequisite to gain an understanding of neurology as it relates to communication. As such, this book contains some of the foundational information from the anatomy textbook, “Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology for Communication Sciences” for review.

The authors intended to cover the coursework with this textbook to customize the sequence of learning objectives and support rising Speech-Language Pathologists. We developed our first open educational resource (OER) textbook in 2020, shortly after the COVID-19 Pandemic began. Reducing the costs of study materials helps rising SLPs progress toward their certification without interruptions due to financial constraints. Developing the Open Education Resource (OER) resources is our ongoing effort to support future SLPs.

A large part of this book is from various OpenStax textbooks. OpenStax is a nonprofit organization based out of Rice University in Houston, Texas. Its open resource textbooks cover a vast amount of information for two-semester core curriculum courses in various disciplines. OpenStax generously permits educators to use their books' content in part or in whole to develop textbooks customized for each instructor's course structure. The present textbook's content from other open resources, such as OpenStax, is color-coded in black ink. Additional information concerning communication sciences and disorders appears in blue ink. The original OpenStax texts are accessible free of charge at https://openstax.org/subjects. This textbook includes applicable content from the OpenStax books Anatomy and Physiology, Psychology, and Biology for AP® Course.

This textbook contains various images produced by the renowned Dr. Willard R. Zemlin (1929-1998) with permission. Dr. Zemlin was one of the most influential scholars in anatomy and physiology concerning communication sciences and disorders. Dr. Zemlin's son, Mr. Karl Zemlin, kindly sharpened numerous images to provide high-resolution pictures. Mr. Zemlin expressed his appreciation for the generosity of those who donated their bodies to science throughout his father's studies. A full collection of Dr. Zemlin's work is accessible at his memorial website http://zemlin.shs.uiuc.edu/zemlinBio.htm of which Mr. Zemlin is the webmaster.

This textbook also incorporates additional OER materials from various information from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), branches of National Institute of Health, Wikimedia Commons, and other Wikimedia websites. The “Wiki-“ series offers a wide range of information under Creative Common (CC) licenses, allowing the use and remix of the materials. This textbook would not have been possible without the contributions of OpenStax, Mr. Karl Zemlin, and generous providers of CDC, NIH, and Wikimedia Commons resources. We sincerely appreciate their kindness. We have made this textbook available for our future colleagues to gain entry-level scientific knowledge applicable for serving individuals with communication disorders.

Open Educational Resources (OER) in Texas Statewide Playbook
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

The Open Educational Resources (OER) in Texas Statewide Playbook is a resource developed by practitioners and advocates actively involved in the labor of open education to guide new and expanding OER work at institutions of higher education. The Playbook is the result of partnerships between the Division of Digital Learning, the Institution for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME) – creators of OER Commons and experts in open education practice and research – and faculty, librarians, staff, and administrators from institutions and systems across Texas. It aims to support institutions as they work to build capacity and drive systems change around OER. It also serves as a guiding document for institutions that have not yet engaged in OER work or taken advantage of existing programs and opportunities. The hope is that the Texas OER Playbook will serve as a companion on the journey towards OER awareness and advocacy at your institution.

The materials in this module -- including PowerPoint slides and a handout -- were developed for the Washington State Canvas Conference (WACC) 2019, co-presented by an Instructional Designer and OER Librarian. Therefore, the focus is on best practices of integrating UDL and OE principles and materials into Canvas courses. However, many concepts are basic and universal and could be adapted to any learning management system. These materials were also designed for a 60-minute session but could easily be adapted for a longer session or workshop. These materials were designed for educators already familiar with the basic concepts of UDL and OER.

This is a resource created by students, for other students studying A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. English students at Mountain Heights Academy, an all-online, state-wide charter school, created individual resources, categorized by chapter, as a way of helping future students understand and interpret this sometimes challenging novel. This resource will be used by future Mountain Heights students, and added upon each year as we compile helpful instructional aids to share with our school and anyone else studying this text.
