This resource is a modification of the Washington Models for the Evaluation of Bias Content in Instructional Materials (2009) that is made available through OER Commons under a public domain license. This resource attempts to both update the content with more contemporary vocabulary and also to narrow the scope to evaluating still images as they are found online. It was developed as a secondary project while working on a BranchED OER grant during summer 2020. It includes an attached rubric adapted from the Washington Model (2009).

5.0 stars

Computer Science courses (COSC) have become a popular area of study from K-12 to higher education levels (i.e., community colleges and four-year institutions). For the past years, different educational approaches have been proposed to disseminate concepts in these areas (traditionally through books and online platforms such as wikis, websites, forums). Although there are several resources available to assist a student in learning tricks or "how-to" for specific items, some of them lack curricular guidance to lead to a constructivist learning approach.

Some of the other available resources rely on a strong mathematical background, which many potential computer science students might not have, discouraging students from pursuing a computer science or programming field, particularly from a K-12 environment and community colleges.

This project comprises two courses: Programming Fundamentals I, a.k.a., CS 1 (THECB: COSC 1436) and Programming Fundamentals II, a.k.a., CS 2 (THECB: COSC 1437). Additionally, we present modules on cybersecurity and data analytics to these two courses, two emerging areas in computing-related to these courses that are highly applicable in today's industry needs.

Although the COSC courses do not appear in the 2017-2019 THECB Most Transfer List, many institutions, including high schools and postsecondary schools, have adopted COSC 1436 and 1437, their core highly demanded courses. Furthermore, different independent school districts have a strong partnership with community colleges and four-year institutions, increasing the number of COSC 1436 and COSC 1437 sections across Texas. Therefore, we anticipate creating an OER that might have a significant impact in the next years.

Chemical Process Dynamics and Controls Textbook
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This course uses an open textbook University of Michigan Chemical Engineering Process Dynamics and Controls. The articles in the open textbook (wikibook) are all written by teams of 3-4 senior chemical engineering students, and are peer-reviewed by other members of the class. Using this approach, the faculty and Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs) teaching the course act as managing editors, selecting broad threads for the text and suggesting references. In contrast to other courses, the students take an active role in their education by selecting which material in their assigned section is most useful and decide on the presentation approach. Furthermore, students create example problems that they present in poster sessions during class to help the other students master the material.

The Cognitive Bias Codex: A Visual Of 180+ Cognitive Biases

0.0 stars

A cognitive bias is an inherent thinking ‘blind spot’ that reduces thinking accuracy and results inaccurate–and often irrational–conclusions.

Much like logical fallacies, cognitive biases can be viewed as either as causes or effects but can generally be reduced to broken thinking. Not all ‘broken thinking,’ blind spots, and failures of thought are labeled, of course. But some are so common that they are given names–and once named, they’re easier to identify, emphasize, analyze, and ultimately avoid

Differentiating Between Open Access and Open Educational Resources
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Differentiating open access and open educational resource can be a challenge in some contexts. Excellent resources such as "How Open Is It?: A Guide for Evaluating the Openness of Journals" (CC BY) https://sparcopen.org/our-work/howopenisit created by SPARC, PLOS, and OASPA greatly aid us in understanding the relative openness of journals. However, visual resources to conceptually differentiate open educational resources (OER) from resources disseminated using an open access approach do not currently exist. Until now.

This one page introductory guide differentiates OER and OA materials on the basis of purpose (teaching vs. research), method of access (analog and digital), and in terms of the relative freedoms offered by different levels of Creative Commons licenses, the most common open license. Many other open licenses, including open software licenses also exist.

Fluid Flow, Heat & Mass Transfer
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The course "Fluid Flow, Heat and Mass Transfer," course number ta3220, is third-year BSc course in the program of Applied Earth Sciences at Delft University of Technology. Students in this class have already taken a course in "Transport Phenomena" in the second year, and "Fluid Flow Heat and Mass Transfer" is designed as a follow-up to that class, with an emphasis on topics of importance in applied earth sciences, and in particular to Petroleum Engineering, groundwater flow and mining.
In practice, however I start over again with first principles with this class, because the initial concepts of the shell balance are difficult for students to grasp and can always use a second time through. The course covers simple fluid mechanics problems (rectilinear flow) using shell balances, for Newtonian and power-law fluids and Bingham plastics. Turbulence for Newtonian fluids is covered in the context of friction factors for flow in pipes, flow around spheres and flow in packed beds.
