The League for Innovation Responds to Hurricane Katrina

Our most heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to our friends and colleagues in the Louisiana Community and Technical College System, as well as all of the residents affected by this devastating hurricane. We will continue to monitor the situation in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. At this time, we are still waiting for details in regards to Innovations 2006, but will keep you posted as more information becomes available.

The League for Innovation / Project SAIL Network and college providers are offering free online courses in a compressed eight-week format for students affected by Hurricane Katrina, through the Sloan Semester initiative. It is estimated that as many as 175,000 students are not currently able to continue their studies at their home institutions in southern Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, due to the devastation. These students need our help, and we are responding with online educational programs and services to meet immediate needs. Learn more about enrollment, programs, and course offerings.

Please support our LCTCS friends and colleagues by donating to the Community College Hurricane Relief Fund coordinated by the American Association of Community Colleges.

Clearly Quotable Image

"Resolving complex situations of educational public policy in a pragmatic, positive fashion relies at least as much on careful case management, persuasive diplomacy, and dexterity in working within the political system as it does on the seeming logic or educational value of any position."

Robert A. Gordon, President, Humber College Institute of Technology
and Advanced Learning

"Many myths and assumptions exist in academia regarding adjunct faculty members. One is that they lack the same stature as full-time faculty. Another is that they should be able to function without the same level of support full-time faculty have."

Linda Thor, President, Rio Salado Community College

"It is most effective to engage industry in addressing issues of equipment and technology. No longer can colleges expect handouts or outright donations; they are rare. Win-win partnerships have to be initiated, nurtured, and maintained."

Susan A. May, Vice President and Chief Academic Officer,
Fox ValleyTechnical College

SAIL Highlight

Project SailThe most recent version of the National Assessment of Adult Literacy Survey (NAAL) is due for dissemination in December 2005 and should offer key findings and new trends in Adult Education and Literacy. While it can be argued that the percentages indicate very few adults in the U.S. are truly completely illiterate (NALS 1988), of greater social challenge are the many adults with low literacy skills who lack the foundation they need to find and keep decent jobs, support their children's education, and participate actively in civic life.

The issues of low literacy culminate social disadvantages in a number of ways. The 1988 NALS found that Education and Adult Literacy is a key to impacting poverty, welfare, income, employment status, and crime - 7 in 10 prisoners have low literacy skills or are functionally illiterate. The result of the CDE Adult Education and Family Literacy Program is part of a national effort to professionalize the adult education workforce, establish standards of competency for practitioners statewide, and thus raise the quality of instruction and the quality of instructors for this critically underserved population.

Find out more about this exciting project at the Project SAIL highlight page.

League Services is Pleased to Announce New Topics

Online and Distance Learning Program Review

Many campuses began their distance learning and online programs by working with faculty pioneers to develop individual online courses scattered throughout the curriculum. Many of these same colleges are now moving toward offering fully online programs, certificates, and diplomas.

This transitional point is the ideal time to bring in a League consultant to conduct a review of your program. Our consultant brings extensive experience in online program development, as well as an in-depth knowledge of national best practices in this area. Especially if your campus will be eventually considering seeking accreditation for online offerings, now is the perfect time to consult with our expert. A detailed report is provided at the end of the engagement that typically includes comments, concerns, and recommendations for improvements, but also recognition of current strengths and accomplishments.

New Revenues: Developing an Entrepreneurial Contract Training Program in the Global Millennium

A model of best practices in providing contract training to industry, constructed from interviews with 14 successful revenue-generating community college programs and interviews with six major corporation training directors.

To be successful in alternative revenue generation, community colleges will have to perceive growth opportunities not in terms of open admissions or generalized workforce development skills, but in terms of vertical institutional cores of subject-matter expertise.

This is one of several characteristics that emerged from a study of 14 community colleges that have demonstrated success at generating revenues from alternative sources of workforce development programs, and from interviews with major regional employers.

A successful revenue program for serving industry's new worker and incumbent workforce development needs is going to require three well thought out and executed elements: (1) a vision of the college as a training solutions provider to industry, (2) a set of internal and external developed and maintained relationships that support the vision as a training solutions provider to a specific vertical industry, and (3) a proven business revenue model.

To find out more about these and other topics, email Ed Leach or call (480) 705-8200, x233.

Announcing the first Workshop on the Impact of
Pen-based Technology on Education (WIPTE)

Organized by representatives from DyKnow, Microsoft, HP, and several notable educational institutions, the workshop will be held April 6-7, 2006, at Purdue University. WIPTE will bring together educators and technologists who use Tablet PCs and other pen-based technologies in the teaching and learning environment.

To date, there has been no venue for sharing and disseminating the value of pen-based computer technology as it cuts across a variety of educational disciplines, grade levels, and settings. In an effort to address this need, WIPTE seeks submissions from individuals with experience employing pen-based pedagogy in varied educational environments. Paper submissions are due November 1, 2005. Read the complete call for papers at www.purdue.edu/wipte.

Call for Participants

CAEL (The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning) invites U.S. community colleges to participate in a pilot project to assess their programs and services for adult learners. The project, funded by Lumina Foundation for Education, is free of charge to participating colleges. 

Building on its successful adult-focused assessment tools for colleges and universities, CAEL has now created assessments that address specific community college issues. These assessments are based on CAEL's Principles of Effectiveness for Serving Adult Learners.

The assessments consist of two instruments that measure and compare faculty and administration's perceptions of its programs to adult learners' perceptions of their experience. The resulting report also provides benchmarks against other community colleges nationwide.

Tool #1: The Institutional Self-Assessment Survey is completed by administrators and faculty. It assesses a wide range of activities, policies, and practices at institutions, from outreach to financial aid to instructional delivery. Because a cross-institutional team completes this survey, it offers a special opportunity for dialogue about adult learners across departments while providing important data about adult student programs.  NCHEMS has provided technical assistance on the development of this Tool.   

Tool #2: The Adult Learner Inventory measures satisfaction and levels of importance among adult students. It provides a reality check for the Institutional Self-Assessment Survey and helps pinpoint strengths and areas for improvement. Noel-Levitz, a name well-known in enrollment and retention services, codeveloped this survey with CAEL.

Together, the surveys provide data to colleges to help them make informed systematic changes that improve adult learner services and program quality. The data from the Tools can also be used to promote the successful aspects of programs and services that already meet the needs of adult learners.

For more information about how to apply to participate in the pilot, contact Ruth Frey at rfrey@cael.org or 312-499-2668.

Horizon Wimba Acquires Silicon Chalk

Horizon Wimba, a provider of collaborative software applications for online education, has announced that it has acquired the assets of Silicon Chalk, the Vancouver-based company that creates software which, from within a class, broadcasts an instructor's prepared notes and lecture materials to local and remote students.

The acquisition allows Horizon Wimba to continue its rapid growth within the educational software industry.

"The acquisition of Silicon Chalk will allow us to utilize the strengths of its core technology in order to improve our own collaborative products," said Tommaso Trionfi, CEO of Horizon Wimba. "Silicon Chalk was a pioneer in educational software, so we're pleased to know its legacy will continue within our own company."

Silicon Chalk's software supports collaboration, communication, exercises, note taking, and presentation in face-to-face classes where some or all students have laptops, desktops, or tablet computers. It allows distance students to participate and create fully interactive recordings of every learning activity for later learning, review, refinement, and asynchronous participation. Silicon Chalk broadcasts an instructor's prepared notes and lecture material to all participants both local and remote, in real time, and as a result, students can take notes on their computers and these notes are then synched with the lecture material.

This acquisition comes less than two months after Horizon Wimba acquired Connected Learning and its Course Genie content authoring software.

About Horizon Wimba
Horizon Wimba develops collaborative software applications addressing the diverse needs of the emerging online education market. Its software enables institutions to enhance their course management systems while also taking advantage of the multitude of advances in the internet and internet-based technologies. The company's virtual classroom solution enables educators to teach and meet live online, its vocal collaboration technologies add oral content directly into course content, webpages and assessments, and its content authoring software allows users to quickly and easily convert Microsoft Word documents into webpages. With simplicity and power, Horizon Wimba adds new dimensions to online, accessible education, enriching the learning experience for both students and instructors.

The New Textbook: Custom Built Online and Co-Published with O’Reilly

League member O'Reilly Media, publisher of top-tier computer books and champion of DIY technologies, is pleased to introduce SafariU (safariu.com), a web-based platform for creating and sharing custom course materials both online and in print.  SafariU gives Computer Science and IT instructors access to the richest and most up-to-date collection of technology content ever assembled for pedagogical purposes.  Build custom textbooks and online syllabi tailored precisely to your teaching needs.  

SafariU users search and select the content they want - and only what they want, even just one section of one chapter - from the wealth of resources in the SafariU database, which includes over 1,400 titles from respected technology publishers such as O'Reilly, Addison-Wesley Professional, Prentice Hall PTR, and many more. Instructors who use SafariU can post their books and syllabi to the Learning Object Exchange, where peers review and trade course materials.  Mike Long, Instructor of Computer Technology at Western Nevada Community College, appreciates this SafariU exchange feature.  "I can draw upon other professors' information," he says.  "If there's something really good in their syllabus, I have permission to use it."

Long calls SafariU "a very cutting-edge way to present technical materials because of its currency.  We can draw freely from some of the best texts on the market."  Cabrillo College Instructor Ed Parrish echoes that sentiment.  "By the time a textbook gets published, it's usually out of date.  I couldn't find one that had the information I needed," he says.  "So I chose to use SafariU."  Parrish also appreciates that the 350-page custom textbook he created for his web programming course costs less than the one-size-fits-all offerings of traditional textbook publishers.  Visit safariu.com to learn more about publishing the textbooks you really want.

The Collaboration for the Advancement of College
Teaching & Learning hosts Diversity Conference

Join us in Minneapolis for The Collaboration's teaching and learning conference, Diversity Here and Now: Holistic and Sustainable Approaches to Multicultural Learning, featuring

  • A thought-provoking reader's theater production of "Undesirable Elements" performed by Illusion Theater. This performance examines, celebrates, and challenges the notion of culture. The power of this production lies in the intimately personal stories of real people, told in a candid, dramatic, and engaging way, addressing stereotypes from the perspectives of both cultural outsiders and insiders.
  • Claude Steele, Stanford University, will share research and insights on stereotype threat - the impact that negative stereotypes have on intellectual performance and academic identities. In his keynote session,  Steele will describe the powerful interfering effects of stereotype threat on academic performance and provide strategies to address root causes of stereotype threat and improve academic underperformance.

The conference is packed with over 30 preconference and concurrent sessions focusing on diversity and multiculturalism in higher education. The rich mix of programming addresses topics such as developing a multicultural climate, creating inclusive curricula, and supporting the success of all students.

Register by October 24 to receive the Early Bird rate!
For registration materials and concurrent session abstracts, please visit www.collab.org.  For more information, please contact Marla Amborn, Program Director, 2356 University Avenue West, Suite 230, St. Paul, MN 55114, 651-646-6166, amborn@collab.org.
