1 Introducing the Kaleidoscope Project Kim Thanos, Program Manager, Kaleidoscope Charles Snare, Vice President Academic Affairs, Chadron State College

2 Key Topics How effective is the Kaleidoscope approach?* What is next with the project? What is the collaboration/community approach and why does it matter? How does a team “develop” a Kaleidoscope course design? How does a faculty member use a Kaleidoscope course design? *This is not a sales pitch.

3 Use open educational resources to improve student success 1.Eliminate textbook cost as a barrier 2.Drive assessment-driven enhancement of course designs and materials 3.Create a collaborative community to share learning and investment Project Goals

5 Academic Year 2012 Impact Enrolled StudentsSectionsInstructors Fall 2011 Total Impact 4, Controlled Pilot 1, Spring 2012 Total Impact 5, Controlled Pilot 2, AY Total Impact 9, Controlled Pilot 4, Expected/Required 4,000

6 Faculty Experience 100% will use open educational resources again 100% found the quality of the texts to be equal 100% continued in Kaleidoscope project “This project is the most rewarding professional experience I have ever had.” “This is an issue of social justice. How, in good conscience, can we not contribute to this movement?” Source: Bliss, Hilton, Wiley, Thanos (2012)

7 Student ratings of quality of open texts “It was very concise and aligned with exactly what we were working on in the class.” “Having the textbook catered to us by our teacher was perfect.” 3% 56% 41% Source: Bliss, Hilton, Wiley, Thanos (2012)

8 Student preference for Kaleidoscope courses “I enjoy having online texts provided for me because I'm poor. I spend the money I have left after rent on school, so having free online texts provided for me benefits me very much.” “GREAT WAY TO DO ONLINE CLASSES!!!!” 13% 73% Source: Bliss, Hilton, Wiley, Thanos (2012)

9 Kaleidoscope Phase II 1.Improve existing courses  Close the loop on assessment, analysis, improvement  Tighten links to outcomes and deeper learning 2.Develop 20 additional course designs 3.Grow and mature the project  Project governance  Faculty leadership  Add 20 new partners using a high-touch process

21 Course Development

22 The Tale of a Math Course Two faculty members Align outcomes Identify opportunity Lack of quality OER Full evaluation of options Open math lab OER/adoption experts Steering committee strategy Inefficient tools New adopter concerns OCL text and videos + 140% student success Spring improvements Dept.-wide adoption Replace Pearson texts Broader community

24 How do you explain… 100% on Day 1 Personal connection “Only” $20

25 Repeatable process

26 Using a Course Design

27 Kaleidoscope Pilot Support Step One: Leadership Workshop Step Two: Review and Prepare Step Four: Faculty Support Step Five: Analysis Step Six: Research Facilitate institutional planning process Facilitate review of materials Support customization and augmentation Connect to faculty communities Complete detailed analysis of learning and success results Suggest opportunities for next iteration Complete program review Analyze consolidated results Step Three: Faculty Course Workshop Community Connection

28 Faculty Members  Adopt an existing course, emphasize support and ease of use  Use your own OER  Use Kaleidoscope as a starting point and customize your course, with little collaboration  Actively engage in the project and community

29 Institutional Leadership  Monitor project leadership and support local work  Use Kaleidoscope as a starting point for institutional open strategy  Identify areas for shared investment and deep collaboration

30 System Leadership  Monitor project leadership support colleges  Lead a regional initiative  Strategically create an open niche for Nebraska and the system  Bridging programs with high schools  Systematic support for adoption  Textbook Zero programs  Engage in policy efforts to facilitate and fund open education
