Tue, 2020-05-05 02:10

Ryan Golden, Education Dive

Three-quarters of college students in an April 10 to April 12 survey by College Reaction said internships or post-graduate jobs they secured had been canceled, moved remote or delayed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The poll, which captured the responses of 822 students, also found that about 90% were at least moderately concerned about the pandemic’s impact on the U.S. job market and economy. Most (71%) were concerned about job and internship opportunities, while some 65% were concerned about their personal financial situation. Respondents also indicated that the pandemic has taken a toll on their mental health, with more than half citing mental health distress as a result of the pandemic. Sixty-seven percent said they were concerned about the effects of social isolation.

Hallie Busta, Education Dive

Freshmen starting in-person programs at Southern New Hampshire University this fall will get a full-tuition scholarship and take their classes online while living on campus or commuting.  The university announced the plan Wednesday, saying it expects to develop a range of online, hybrid and/or project-based learning pathways to be available starting in the fall of 2021. Southern New Hampshire also said it hopes to cut its annual campus-based tuition by 61% to $10,000 by 2021. The move follows other efforts by the private university to compete directly with public institutions.

Gen Z Takeover: How the newest generation is changing higher ed

Tue, 2020-05-05 02:02

Natalie Schwartz, Education Dive
Our ongoing series examines how colleges are adapting to attract and retain their youngest students. Generation Z is here. Like the millennials before them, their unique behaviors and preferences are forcing colleges to change. Many of these current and prospective students are wary of taking on debt, inclined toward tech-based learning tools and are more likely than past generations to use mental health services.

Colleges must be flexible with credit acceptance, higher ed groups say

Mon, 2020-05-04 02:03

Hallie Busta, Education Dive

Six leading higher education organizations this week issued a set of principles to guide their members in accepting academic credit in light of the coronavirus’s impact on instruction.  The eight principles include acknowledging that the situation is placing stress on students and intensifying historical inequities. Transparency about credit policies is critical, the groups said. The guidance comes as the coronavirus forces colleges to move courses online, which has led to more flexibility in assessments and grading.

Learning Engineering Is Learning About Learning. We Need That Now More Than Ever.

Sun, 2020-05-03 02:07

Michael Feldstein, EdSurge

When our teaching practice is rooted in instinct, tradition and occasional trial-and-error experiments, we often bundle together different aspects of what we are doing without ever teasing out which teaching moves are the critical ones—and why. A radical switch to a new teaching environment, where many contextual factors change dramatically, causes many first-time online teachers to take a hard look at their assumptions. They may learn, for example, that the Q&A portion of their lecture class was actually the part where students learned the most, rather than from the meticulously crafted presentation from the lectern.

Lewis Chongwony, Joel L. Gardner, Amie Tope; OJDLA

In this study, we explore and report on the competencies required of instructional design managers in higher education by analyzing 30 job descriptions posted by institutions of higher education. Results of this analysis identified major categories with 17 competencies. Communication skills, Instructional Design and Related Areas, and General Leadership and Management Expertise were the competencies noted most frequently within the job posts. We share the results of the study, including typical job titles, common job descriptions, and education and experience requirements. Finally, we briefly highlight the implications of these findings and provide recommendations for future research, practice, and training of future instructional designers and leaders.

Universities must help shape the post-COVID-19 world

Sun, 2020-05-03 02:03

Ira Harkavy, Sjur Bergan, Tony Gallagher and Hilligje van’t Land, University World News

We contend that higher education must play a major role in helping to shape the post-COVID-19 world and do so by reshaping higher education itself. The post-COVID-19 world must be based on the values we cherish: democracy, human rights and the rule of law as well as social justice, inclusion and equity. Higher education can add momentum by renewing our commitment to our core values of academic freedom, institutional autonomy and engagement by students, faculty and staff, and re-emphasising the role of higher education institutions as societal actors for the public good.

Some high school seniors are dropping their first-choice schools in favor of colleges that are cheaper. Others are taking a year off so they can help bail out their families. Some high school seniors are dropping their first-choice schools in favor of colleges that are cheaper and closer to home, early surveys have found. Others are thinking about going part-time, or taking a gap year so they can work and bail out families whose breadwinners are suddenly out of work.

Everybody was supposed to be famous for 15 minutes in the future, but now you’re appearing on video 15 times a day and you want some anonymity. That’s not going to be the case for a while as social distancing continues, so you might as well make the best of your time in front of the camera. Whether you’re in Zoom meetings with colleagues or having virtual cocktail parties with friends, follow these steps so you can spend more time focusing on others and not anxiously checking how you look in the corner of the screen.

Librarian Integrated Workflows to Enhance Course Design & Development

Fri, 2020-05-01 02:05

Erin Brothen, etal;  Capella University
As the modes of course development in universities shift to be more team-based, librarians are now contributing core components of course development operations. This article outlines the ways that librarians at Capella University have been integrated systematically into course development. Adding librarians to specific points throughout the course development process has streamlined processes, saved materials costs, and better aligned research skills instruction with student needs. This systematic integration method is novel, compared to traditional models that pair librarians with individual faculty or offer ad hoc, or small pilot project assistance.

What’s the government done to relieve student loan borrowers of their burden during the corona crisis?

Fri, 2020-05-01 02:03

Caitlin Brandt, Louise Sheiner, and Kadija Yilla, Brookings Institution

Forty-two million Americans, or one in every eight, have student loans, and they owe a total of $1.6 trillion, the second largest pool of consumer credit after mortgages. According to the Federal Reserve, 20 percent of adult borrowers who borrowed for their own educations were behind on their payments in 2018. Of those who are paying their loans, typical monthly payments are between $200 and $299. With unemployment soaring due to the coronavirus pandemic, some people may not be able to make their monthly loan payments. What has the government done to relieve the burden of student loans?

Determining Carnegie Units: Student Engagement in Online Courses Without a Residential Equivalent

Thu, 2020-04-30 02:10

Katherine M. Adler, OJDLA

Carnegie Units (CU) quantify the time spent by students in and out of class in terms of content engagement. The rule states that for every one hour spent in a face-to-face setting, students spend an additional two hours of study time or engagement with the material). For colleges offering both online and residential courses with the same content, equating the time online students spend with course content is not difficult – the Registrar aligns online courses with their residentially offered matches. However, what does a college do when 100% of its courses are offered online, with no onsite match? What follows is a discussion of how one college ensured and quantified engagement in online courses.

7 mental health resources to help college students during the coronavirus pandemic

Thu, 2020-04-30 02:03

LAURA ASCIONE, eCampus News
The coronavirus has closed campuses across the globe, and many students may need help regulating their mental health and dealing with anxiety. Colleges and universities across the globe have closed campuses and moved instruction online in an attempt to stop community spread of the novel coronavirus. Many students find themselves back home with family, quarantining while their campuses remain physically shut down. Others may be out of work and worrying about finances on top of attending online classes. Still others are international students who might not be able to return home. According to researchers at the University of California, Irvine, many people experience psychological distress resulting from repeated media exposure to the crisis.
