There are many layers when thinking about Open and Open Textbooks. In this first week of the workshop, we'll begin by peeling those layers back, starting with what Open actually means in the context of education. We'll then move on to looking at what an Open Textbook is. We've provided you with some resources to check out, and we ask that you post in the forum to talk to other participants about your experiences with openness.

Adult Learners: Characteristics, Qualities, Needs
Conditions of Use:

The five assumptions below, adapted from Glickman and Gordon (2007), continue to serve widely as a general guide for thinking about adult learners. (See document for details.) 1). Adult learners are generally self-directed. 2). Adult learners need to know the importance and relevance of what they’re learning. 3). Adults bring a variety of experiences that should be utilized in their learning 4). Adults are results-oriented and want to shift quickly from theory to application 5). Adult learners are intrinsically motivated and work best when learning has clear, relevant goals.

Adult Learners: Characteristics, Qualities, and Needs

Andragogy is the study of how adults learn and is a theory developed by Malcolm Knowles based on a variety of research centered on adult development, needs, and learning styles. This document includes a description of Knowles’ five underlying assumptions, along with specific applications of these five components expanded upon by other researchers and theorists. More recent theories of adult learning have called these assumptions into question, proposing that there may be degrees or certain conditions under which they apply or that self-direction, for instance, may be desirable but not always the reality of adult learners. Nevertheless, these assumptions continue to serve widely as a general guide for thinking about adult learners.

Analytical Chemistry 2.0
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Analytical chemistry is more than a collection of analytical methods and an understanding of equilibrium chemistry; it is an approach to solving chemical problems. Although equilibrium chemistry and analytical methods are important, their coverage should not come at the expense of other equally important topics. The introductory course in analytical chemistry is the ideal place in the undergraduate chemistry curriculum for exploring topics such as experimental design, sampling, calibration strategies, standardization, optimization, statistics, and the validation of experimental results. Analytical methods come and go, but best practices for designing and validating analytical methods are universal. Because chemistry is an experimental science it is essential that all chemistry students understand the importance of making good measurements.
