SIUE Receives Insight Into Diversity 2014 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award2014-09-16 09:57:39 SIUE.edu
Today, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville received the 2014 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education.
As a recipient of the annual HEED Award?a national honor recognizing U.S. colleges and universities that demonstrate an outstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion? SIUE will be featured along with 82 other recipients in INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine?s November 2014 issue.
?SIUE nurtures an open, respectful, and welcoming climate that facilitates learning and work,? said Chancellor Julie Furst-Bowe. ?Each member of the University is responsible for contributing to such a campus environment.
?We are committed to education that explores the historic significance of diversity in order to understand the present and to better enable our community to engage the future. Integral to this commitment, SIUE strives for a student body and a workforce that is both diverse and inclusive.?
INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine selected SIUE based on exemplary diversity and inclusion initiatives, and ability to embrace a broad definition of diversity on campus, including gender, race, ethnicity, veterans, people with disabilities, members of the LGBT community, as well as all others. Specifically, the establishment of the We Are One University Diversity Plan and the creation of a new Multicultural Center are evidences of the University?s commitment, said Dr. Venessa Brown, associate chancellor for Institutional Diversity and Inclusion.
?We sponsor book clubs and film series to intentionally generate intellectual discussions, increase knowledge and further our understanding and value of society as a whole, and thereby broaden our view of the world,? Brown said. ?Our Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion collaborates with most units on campus to ensure that we model the value of relationship building. We have created a number of mentoring programs, such as, faculty mentoring student athletes, faculty mentoring students with disabilities, and faculty peer mentoring to name a few.
?We have also established a Champion for Diversity Award. The award is presented to a faculty or staff member who has demonstrated an exemplary level of dedication to SIUE?s mission of fostering equal opportunity, positive interactions with students, staff and faculty, and who respects and values differing backgrounds and points of view within SIUE.?
?We hope the HEED award serves as a way to honor those institutions of higher education that recognize the importance of diversity and inclusion as part of their everyday campus culture,? said Lenore Pearlstein, publisher of INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine.

SIUE Faculty and Students Test Open Educational Resources Pilot2014-09-16 09:30:05 SIUE.edu
As a result of rising textbook costs and the proliferation of Open Educational Resource (OER) materials, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville is conducting a pilot program in order to gauge the feasibility of using OER as a no-cost or low-cost alternative to traditional textbooks.
Eleven faculty members from various disciplines worked with Information Technology Services (ITS) and Library Information Services (LIS) during the summer to identify or create OER to be used in select courses being offered during the current fall term.
In place of traditional textbooks, faculty and students participating in the pilot instead are relying primarily on other electronic resources, most of them freely available in the public domain. The selected courses will use OER in place of the standard textbook, using the iPad mini as the delivery device.
SIUE students have benefited from the University?s textbook rental program, which has kept their costs relatively affordable. Textbook costs have continually increased, with average annual textbook fees now at nearly $1,200 per student, according to the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) Education Fund and The Student PIRG.
In contrast, SIUE?s undergraduate students pay an average of $165 per semester for a 15 credit hour course load. SIUE has been able to keep costs affordable by amortizing expenses over several terms by reusing textbooks.
?The future of the textbook market and our program looks quite different as publishers begin to shift toward digital content,? said Joseph Pearson, director of the Morris University Center. ?As publishers introduce digital content, they charge per user, per seat, per semester, which significantly increases the costs of these course materials.?
?While it?s always difficult to predict the future, recent trends support the idea that most course materials will transition to digital content during the next few years,? said Matthew Schmitz, associate director of Online and Blended Education in the SIUE department of Information Technology Services. ?While this change most certainly could be more expensive, the transition to digital content also offers opportunities to provide access to a wider variety of learning activities, resources and content than traditional textbooks offer.?
Changes in technology have provided faculty access and the ability to create and self-publish high quality, open educational resources.
Sorin Nastasia, assistant professor of public relations in the Department of Applied Communication Studies within the SIUE College of Arts and Sciences, is participating in the pilot program. The course ?Technology Applications in Public Relations (ACS 315)? involves 31 students. The students gain expertise in the Adobe CS6 package with which they are directed to create logos, business cards, newsletters, brochures and websites.
?ACS 315 lends itself perfectly to this type of approach,? Nastasia said. ?Using open educational resources rather than traditional textbook materials allow students to understand and become proficient in technology applications. They need to go through tutorials and see examples of possible outcomes.
?From their course schedule, students have direct access to tutorials and examples pertinent for a specific week, topic and project. They are guided to go through all OERs for a course date before they come to class. They also have apps on their iPads that can help them with their projects.
?For a hands-on course like ACS 315, all of these are of great help to the faculty as teaching tools and to the students as learning tools,? Nastasia added. ?They are more up-to-date than traditional textbooks and they allow for increased dynamism in the class. I definitely see this trend of using OERs for some courses continuing successfully in the future.?
During the fall semester, students in the pilot will be surveyed at various intervals to determine the effectiveness of the OER material selected for their courses. In addition, ITS instructional designers and LIS librarians will be working with faculty members to locate OER for any additional topics that might arise as a result of course activities or discussions.
At the conclusion of the pilot, all faculty, staff and student participants will be surveyed. The collected data will be used to identify the strengths and weaknesses, successes and failures, and presented to the University administration. This report will determine the future of OER initiatives at SIUE.
Along with ITS and LIS, the OER pilot project is the result of collaboration among many other University offices including the Office of the Provost, the University Bookstore, Textbook Services and the Office of the Registrar.
Additional information about the SIUE OER pilot project is available from the resource site.
About Open Educational Resources
The Hewlett Foundation defines OER as ?teaching, learning and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. Open educational resources include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software and any other tools, materials or techniques used to support access to knowledge.?Read Full Story ...

SIUE School of Nursing to Host U.S. Army DRASH Simulation2014-09-16 07:00:05 SIUE.edu
The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Nursing will be hosting the United States Army for a scaled-down version of the Deployable Rapid Assembly Shelter (DRASH). The event will take place Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 22-23 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the School of Nursing atrium on the second floor of Alumni Hall.
The Army will have approximately five representatives attending the event to showcase real-life simulations and to answer questions. Additionally, students in attendance will have the chance to win a military medical history book with the winner to be announced Tuesday.
?The School of Nursing is excited to partner with the U.S. Army,? said Dr. Roberta Harrison, assistant dean for undergraduate programs. ?Student nurses will witness the highly technical medical services used in the battlefield, while learning about the scholarship and career opportunities offered by the Army.?
Army Captain Derrin Jones and his military team will conduct the event. ?The DRASH simulation is one way to allow students, who are considering medicine in any capacity, to come and view what we do.? said Jones. ?Our team travels across the U.S. for students to experience firsthand some of the military?s finest assets used in the field for saving lives.?
Students attending the event will be able to speak to military personnel and ask questions regarding the many scholarships provided by the Army for aspiring medical professionals. Students will learn what equipment the Army Forward surgical team uses in the front lines during times of conflict. Utilizing DRASH equipment allows Army medical personnel to improve the survival rate of injured service men and women.
?Thanks in part to Lieutenant Colonel David Motes from SIUE?s Army ROTC program, the Army was able to partner with SIUE to offer diverse learning opportunities and challenging leadership roles to young medical professionals,? Jones said. ?That, coupled with the endless educational opportunities, will help further advance SIUE students? careers.?
