Open Education Week: Get to Know the New, Upcoming Illinois SCOERs OER, Program 2

Tuesday, March 7, 2023 - 2:00pm to 3:15pm

Please join the CARLI and the Open Educational Resource Committee as we celebrate Open Education Week, March 6-10, with a series of discussions which will highlight the upcoming publication of Illinois SCOERs Round One Awardees.

These events are made possible through funding from the U.S. Department of Education.

Please register for the event.

Dr. Jacqueline Samuel from National Louis University will discuss her project Cultural Humility in Public Administration. This textbook supports introductory courses that address “The Human Condition: Care, Development, and Lifespan” through Public Health, Social Psychology, Community Psychology, and Social Work.  Each approach considers the individual, community, and society through a different perspective: Public Health is protective and injury preventing, Social Psychology examines social influences and interactions, while Community Psychology looks at relationships in context, and Social Work meets the needs of all. The addition of Cultural Humility as lens for framing these approaches is what makes this text unique. The ancillary materials will include a 3d printed assignment that explores culture in terms of place and space.

Health Sciences Librarian Amber Burtis, together with Professor Tim Davis from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, will outline Davis’ Anatomy and Physiology for Allied Health Professions. Davis created an open textbook and ancillary materials for a one-semester Anatomy and Physiology non-lab-based course that is geared towards allied health majors and is also in the core curriculum at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. This project fits into the CARLI subgrant theme of “The Human Condition: Care, Development, and Lifespan” because it focuses on anatomy and physiology which is a foundational area in the study of human health and development. The course does not include a lab, so one of ancillary materials for this course will be a “lab” manual for 3D printing and Virtual Reality assignments and activities related to Anatomy and Physiology.

Dr. Lonetta Oliver, Dean of Humanities at Illinois Central College will discuss Nurse Assistant Training OER. The subgrant theme is “The Human Condition: Care, Development, and Lifespan.” ICC’s project fits nicely within this theme in that OER developed for the Nurse Assistant Training course Health 112 (HLTH 112) focuses on nursing and elder care students. This OER incorporates materials focused on filling gaps that current texts do not address, such as life and soft skills. ICC plans to use the 3D printer and consumables provided through the CARLI Illinois SCOERS grant to create the 3D HLTH 112 assignment (the assignment will consist of a side-by-side comparison of a brain exhibiting signs of severe Alzheimer’s disease compared to an anatomically normal brain.)
