An overview of the Open SUNY COTE Quality Review Process. For more information, go to http://commons.suny.edu/cote/course-supports/ TRANSCRIPT: The Open SUNY Center for Online Teaching Excellence has developed an online course design rubric and process that addresses both the instructional design and accessibility of an online course that is openly licensed for anyone to use and adapt. The aim of the Open SUNY COTE Quality Review (OSCQR) Rubric and Process is to support continuous improvements to the quality and accessibility of online courses, while also providing a system-wide approach to collect data across campuses, institutions, departments, and programs that can be used to inform faculty development, and support large scale online course design, review, and refresh efforts systematically and consistently. There are two components: the OSCQR Process and the OSCQR Rubric. The OSCQR Process provides a framework and a Dashboard to support a campus-tailored and scalable approach to improving the instructional design of online or blended courses. There are three parts to the Process. The Online Course Review, using the OSCQR Rubric, yields an action plan that informs the Course Refresh process by targeting areas for improvements. After the identified areas have been refreshed and offered to students, the Learning Review is a meeting between the Instructional Designer and the faculty that closes the continuous improvement loop to confirm the success of the changes made and plan for the next set of improvements. The Dashboard is housed in Google Drive, which allows for free storage and collaboration. It automates campus-level operation of course reviews and allows for different rubrics by managing all the rubrics for the institution. Built-in analytics track course review progress, and can be used to identify course design trends. Working with multi institutional teams of SUNY online instructional designers, librarians, distance learning directors, and technologists, Open SUNY COTE staff started with the Chico rubric, 20 years of SUNY Learning Network research-informed best online practices, the SUNY office of general counsel’s memorandum on accessibility considerations, and conducted a gap analysis with Quality Matters, iNACOL, and Blackboard exemplary courses. The resulting 37 point checklist also incorporates the Community of Inquiry model, The 7 Principles for Good practice in Undergraduate Education, The Adult Learner, Bloom’s Taxonomy, How People Learn, and has been mapped to the Open SUNY COTE fundamental and core competencies for online course design. The Rubric is easy to use, non-evaluative, requires no storage space, can be customized, and can be implemented in a variety of ways. The rubric: Produces an action plan Allows for prioritization of standards Estimates amount of time to make improvements Offers suggestions and examples for improvements Accommodates modification and addition of standards The OSCQR Rubric also has 37 integrated standards focused on specific ways to make an online course accessible to students with disabilities. The Open SUNY OSCQR Rubric is flexible, customizable, research - based and openly licensed for anyone to use and adapt. It is currently being used by 21 SUNY institutions.

In which we explore meaning making and action plans, as shown in the notes below. But first, time stamps so you can avoid the banter: 1. What does data mean?: 1:31 2. Data-Driven Decision Making: 5:00 Closing the Loop – Recommendations Based on Data Making a recommendation consists of three stages. 1. Present the data 2. Tell us what the data means (or tell us what faculty think the data means) a. This is key. This is where we can provide context for data. 3. Provide us with your preferred course of action Making Meaning 1. Check to see what recommendations faculty have made in their course findings. 2. Hold a meeting with faculty to discuss findings, general trends in student performance, etc. Action Plans Low-hanging fruit: 1. Change the methodology a. Should run a methodology for a full year for consistent results 2. Raise the target a. This holds the program to a higher standard. 3. Change the artifact a. This can be meaningful if you’re making substantive changes to a given assignment, but simply switching out one assignment for another is relatively easy and arbitrary. 4. Sustain assessment practices a. Recommending that you collect data for another semester or year in addition to your normal cycle year obligations. Advanced Options: 1. Add criteria to an assignment a. Adding criteria so students are asked to perform more effectively. b. This is key for PSLO-ISLO alignment. 2. Create a new rubric a. Using the AACU rubric as a starting point, develop a new rubric that more accurately measures student proficiency. 3. Resource Allocation a. Requesting faculty support b. Tutoring support c. Equipment/supplies/space Additional Resources: 1. Using Assessment Data to Improve the Teaching Experience: https://www.slideshare.net/fcaristo/using-assessment-data 2.

Here's a short description of action research. TRANSCRIPT: Teaching is a craft. It’s both an art and a science, which is why great teachers always experiment and make tons of mistakes. But how do you know what’s actually working? One option is action research. Here you can identify a question or problem, test out a strategy, gather data, and determine if it works. The end result is something dynamic, innovative, and tied directly to your classroom. Action research dissolves the barrier between participants and researchers. In other words, the teacher actively participates in the situation while conducting the research. There are many action research frameworks, but they generally follow a similar process: You start out in phase one, planning for research. Phase One: Planning for Research It starts with an inquiry process, where you define a specific research question. It needs to be something you can actually test. Next, you conduct a literature review to gain a deeper understanding of the related research. Finally, you move into the design process, where you determine your data methods, consider ethical issues, get required permissions, create deadlines and set up systems. This is where you engage in multiple cycles of experimentation and data collection. Your data collection might include qualitative data, like observations, artifacts, and interviews or quantitative data like rubric scores, surveys, or achievement data. Phase Three: Analysis You will often start by organizing data with charts or graphs and looking for trends. You might also discuss it with peers, free write in a journal, or create a cluster map before eventually writing out your results. Phase Four: Conclusion This is often where you share your research with the world and reflect on your own practice. This will ultimately lead to new questions . . . and the cycle will continue again as you refine your craft as a better, more creative teacher.

Hassan Rouhani, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, addresses the general debate of the 73rd Session of the General Assembly of the UN (New York, 25 September - 01 October 2018). Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said “unilateral sanctions in themselves constitute a form of economic terrorism,” adding that “it is ironic that the US government does not even conceal its plan for overthrowing the same government it invites to talks.” Speaking today (25 Sep) on the first day of the 73rd United Nations General Debate, Hassan Rouhani said “on what basis and criteria can we enter into an agreement with an administration misbehaving such as this?” referring to the United States and adding that “any talks should be within the framework and in continuation of the JCPOA and Security Council resolution 2231, and not in a framework of breaching them and reverting to the past.” The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) known also as the Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2015 between Iran on one side and the US, UK, France, Germany, Russia and China on the other. The United States however, withdrew from the deal in May this year, after its president, Donald Trump repeatedly threaten to do so unless the deal was expanded to include Iran’s missile programme as well as some other issues. Rouhani said, “It is ironic that the US government does not even conceal its plan for overthrowing the same government it invites to talks.” New US sanctions are scheduled to kick in at the beginning of November this year, and it remains unclear how this unilateral action will affect the implementation of the deal by other signatories. In his speech, Iran’s president said “unlawful unilateral sanctions in themselves constitute a form of economic terrorism and a breach of the right to development.” He also said “the economic war that the United States has initiated under the rubric of new sanctions not only targets the Iranian people but also entails harmful repercussions for the people of other countries.” Rouhani did agree that ‘there is no better way but dialogue” but he said that the dialogue goes two-way and “it should be based on equality, justice, and human integrity and honor, and conducted in accordance with the rules and norms of international law.” He invited the United States to “return to that Council resolution” and said “the UN Security Council resolution 2231 is not a ‘piece of paper.” On 20 July 2015, the Security Council – including the United States, unanimously adopted resolution 2231 endorsing the JCPOA. With this act, the Security Council affirmed that conclusion of the JCPOA marked a fundamental shift in its consideration of the Iranian nuclear issue, expressed its desire to build a new relationship with Iran strengthened by the implementation of the JCPOA and to bring to a satisfactory conclusion its consideration of this matter. ---------------------------------------- Watch General Debate of the General Assembly (in original language) https://unwebtv.live/73_UNGA_FL متابعة باللغة العربية أعمال المداولات العامة رفيعة المستوى للجمعيه العامة https://unwebtv.live/73_UNGA_AR 敬请收看联合国大会一般性辩论（中文同声传译） https://unwebtv.live/73_UNGA_ZH Suivez le débat de l'Assemblée générale (en français) https://unwebtv.live/73_UNGA_FR Transmisión del debate de la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas (en español) https://unwebtv.live/73_UNGA-ES Смотрите Общие прения Генеральной Ассамблеи (на русском) https://unwebtv.live/73_UNGA_RU #UNGA #UnitedNations

Welcome to the Virtual Scholarship Center powered by The Scholarship Academy. This demonstration will give you an overview of the platform and its features! We built in a user-friendly dashboard and included Quick Links at the top of the screen for ease of navigation. If you need assistance with logging in, accessing the site, or onboarding students, please reach out to us directly via email or telephone. To begin, navigate your browser to virtualscholarshipcenter.com. There, enter the log in credentials provided with your institution or organization’s subscription. You will know you have logged in successfully when you reach your dashboard! You should see the name of your school or institution in the center of the screen, and at the top there are quick links to for each feature of the platform. The Manage tabs are the two most frequently used functions on the platform, which is why they are front and center on this page. “Manage Students” is designed to help you onboard individual students and groups, and “Manage Volunteers” allows you to onboard and assign additional roles to other educators and volunteers within your registered organization or school system. Clicking on “Add Student” allows you to input student information manually, or upload batches of students from a pre-populated Excel spreadsheet! It is a best practice for student profiles to include parent or guardian email addresses and contact info for shared communications. When students access the Virtual Scholarship Center platform, their work is recorded and shown in the Student Roster. Your dashboard displays an overview of each registered student within your organization, and it allows you to add and remove students individually. Student profiles allow you to view demographic information, review completed essays, monitor assigned scholarships, and view transcripts. Essays are listed by their Scholarship Brand category, which correspond to the activities and the rubric in the College Funding Toolkit. Your dashboard allows you to score these essays using a 1 to 10 scale, download them directly from the platform, and upload revisions as they are completed! Every Virtual Scholarship Center subscription includes a FREE Financial Aid Awareness. The results from your assessment generate a holistic, customized, action plan based on the needs of YOUR students. When you complete the assessment, next steps are populated in the Action Plan tab of your profile. Action plans are focused on overall Content Knowledge, Meaningful Interactions with students and families, the School Environment and Financial Aid Culture. With each completed next step, you should see scores improve in your Action Plan. The Virtual Scholarship Center’s Inbox allows you to communicate with individual students, groups of students, and other educators within your organization. It is a best practice to use the Message Center in conjunction with the Calendar to notify students and families of upcoming scholarship and financial aid deadlines! Calendar features include the ability to create reminders and schedule meetings with your students and other educators, both for individuals and group interactions! This can be accessed directly from your dashboard or from the “Calendar” tab in the Quick Links at the top of the page. Similar to the “Manage Students” function, “Manage Volunteers” allows you to create roles and assign students TO those roles. Each person with a log in to the Virtual Scholarship Center has a profile, and organization administrators are given access to add, monitor, edit or remove each type of profile. As students and staff complete assessments and do work on the platform, the system records progress and creates reports that can be exported. Report parameters can be filtered and sorted by different demographic categories and by student grade point average. And as students complete more activities, the reports get more robust, and your dashboard will reflect the changes! With some encouragement, your students will want to take control of their financial aid awareness, and hopefully each time you log out, you’ll see their progress their next time you log in. The Virtual Scholarship Center was designed to help your students earn a Debt Free Degree- let’s get started!

Assignment: Hands-On Activity: Blocking and Camera Placement In this in-class activity, student teams will plan the blocking and filming of a brief encounter between two characters. The instructor will provide the specifics for the scenario, which will involve two characters meeting and talking briefly before one of them exits. Student teams will prepare an overhead blocking diagram, which maps each character's positions and movements, and a minimum of three camera positions for filming the scene. Teams will also indicate on the blocking diagram both the Line of Action and the Circle of Action. Camera placements must respect the Line of Action in order to obey the 180 Degree Rule. The instructor will then provide additional direction, altering the scene in order to cause a change to the Line of Action. Student teams will then make modifications to their blocking diagram to accommodate this change. Blocking diagrams will be turned in to the instructor by the end of the class period. Please consult the “Module 3: Preproduction Feedback Checklist.” This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with expectations for successful completion of the assignment.

Thank you so much! *************************************************************** In Part 2 of the Writing Paper, one of the options commonly found is that of the Review. Sometimes this will take the form of a book review, and at other times you'll need to review a movie you have seen. It's always very important that you read the rubric - it's never the case that all you have to do is to write a review, saying what you liked and didn't like. Instead, you'll have to write a review that meets certain criteria. Perhaps the book was surprising; perhaps it taught you something new about a different culture. To get the content marks, you need to write something that is connected to the task at all times - don't be tempted to write about something that isn't relevant. And at the end of your review, remember to offer a recommendation, with justification for your views. Not everybody likes the same things - if you didn't like the book because there wasn't enough action in the story, that might not put off people like me who don't necessarily need action to keep the tale interesting. *********************************************************** If you'd like to learn more about studying for any Cambridge exams, be sure to visit my facebook page: www.facebook.com/closelyobservedenglish *********************************************************** Want to do more to prepare for your CAE?

The U.S. Supreme Court split bitterly on the issue of affirmative action in public universities on Wednesday, casting doubt on whether considering race in college admissions will remain legal much longer. In a hearing that extended well beyond the initial one-hour limit, the justices once again were divided on whether the admissions plan the University of Texas at Austin uses when admitting students -- which the court already vetted in 2013 -- is constitutional. The UT system follows what is known as the Top Ten Percent plan, an ostensibly "race-neutral" rubric under which roughly 75 percent of its admissions pool consists of top-ranking students at high schools across the state. But UT weighs the remaining 25 percent of applicants "holistically" -- that is, taking into account a host of factors, of which race is only one. Abigail Fisher, the white student at the center of the case, claims that this part of the rubric violates the Constitution. "What's wrong with this plan if need is put aside?" a skeptical Justice Sonia Sotomayor asked Bert Rein, the lawyer representing Fisher. By "need," Sotomayor meant the need for diversity, which the court in past cases has deemed acceptable as a matter of constitutional principle. She seemed to want a commitment on whether this should remain the benchmark. Sotomayor and her liberal colleagues, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Justice Stephen Breyer, posed tough questions of Rein and seemed keen on pulling the veil back on the real endgame of the case: not just the limited consideration of race at UT, but all affirmative action use in higher education nationwide. (Justice Elena Kagan recused herself due to her involvement with the case when she was solicitor general.)

Assessment design criteria Career Stage - Graduate Main Focus area - 5.3 School - Darwin High School A pre-service teacher at Darwin High School acknowledges that one of her biggest challenges in teaching is in making accurate and consistent judgments of student work during summative assessments. Within an assessment moderation panel, in which she participates with her supervisor and another pre-service student, samples of student work are examined and compared against published 'assessment design criteria'.

Do you sometimes struggle to begin writing an essay when taking an exam? Good news! There is an important writing skill that will help you improve your essay introductions. This technique is called "paraphrasing", and it means rewriting something using different words. In this lesson, I will teach you how to paraphrase successfully and how to change essay questions into your own words. These skills are very useful for university and high school students, as well as any students writing English proficiency exams like the TOEFL or IELTS. TAKE THE QUIZ: http://www.engvid.com/how-to-write-a-good-essay-paraphrasing-the-question/ WATCH NEXT: Essay Writing – 6 ways to compare: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8WSzwBD7GQ TRANSCRIPT Hi, there. My name is Emma, and in today's video I'm going to teach you something very important for if you're taking any type of test that has a writing component. So, if you are taking the IELTS, the TOEFL, the CELPIP, even just a university test, it can be any type of test, but if you're asked to write something like an essay or a paragraph, this video is for you. Okay? So I'm going to teach you a very important skill that will help improve your marks when it comes to writing on tests. So, let's get started. So, I have here an essay question. This question is actually... I've seen it on the IELTS. You know, you have similar types of questions on the TOEFL, sometimes in university. The question is this: "Education is the single most important factor in the development of a country. Do you agree or disagree?" Or maybe: "To what extent do you agree or disagree?" So, this is an example of a question you might be asked. Now, a problem a lot of students have is in their answer to this question. They see this, and they think: "Okay, education is the most important factor in the development of a country, yes, I agree." So then they... Or: "I disagree", and they start writing. And what do they write? Usually the very first thing students will write is this: "I agree that education is the single most important factor in the development of a country because..." So, what is the problem with this? Is there any problem to start off your essay with something like this, or to start off your answer? There's a big problem. So I want you to take a moment and think: "What could be the problem with starting your essay off with this sentence?" Okay, well, if you noticed, you have here the word: "education, education, is, is, the single most important, most important factor". If you notice, these are the same. They're the exact same, except for: "I agree that" and "because". The student, here, has used the exact same wording that is in the question. So, if you do this on the IELTS-and many students do this, same with on the TOEFL-you actually will lose marks, and same with in university, because you're not showing your abilities; you're just copying what somebody else has said or what the essay question is. So, in this video, I'm going to show you first off... First off, I'm going to tell you: Don't do this, don't copy. And I'm going to teach you ways in order to improve yourself and your answer by changing this wording. How can you change your introduction so it's different than what the question is? Okay? So, let's look at how to make these changes. Okay, so what we are going to do in order to change the question into a proper answer that doesn't just copy the question, is we are going to paraphrase. So, the word here is: "paraphrase". This might be a new word for you. What does it mean to paraphrase something? Well, when we paraphrase, it means we take a sentence that, you know... We take somebody else's sentence and we change it into our own words. Okay? So, we change the words of a sentence, we also change maybe the sentence structure, but we keep all the same meaning. Okay? So, the meaning from the sentence you copy, it stays the same, same meaning, but different words and different sentence structure. Okay? So it's in your words, but this other person's meaning. So, we are going to paraphrase this example of a question into our own words. So, first we're going to look at how to do that using vocabulary and synonyms. So, we have here the same question: "Education is the single most important factor in the development of a country." How can we put this into new words or our own words that keep the same meaning? Well, we can use synonyms. So, this might be a new word for you, too. A "synonym". "Synonyms" are words that have the same meaning, but are different words.

Animation, Cartoons, Art, Artists & Arts Miscellany playlist... https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7FAC5AA4A21B10C0 more at http://quickfound.net/ 'Animated plea for urban renewal connected with 1950s efforts to "redevelop" American city centers..."This is the story of an average sort of fellow who lives in a nice average home, in a nice average town. Every night he comes home to his nice average house and in due time he goes to sleep."... Weird tale blaming the devil for slums...' Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_renewal Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Urban renewal (also called urban regeneration in the United Kingdom, urban renewal or urban redevelopment in the United States) is a program of land redevelopment in cities, often where there is urban decay. However, in more recent cases this term has been replaced with more vague ones, like "blight," an elastic term that has been used and abused to justify the taking and destruction of habitable and badly needed low-cost urban housing, and its replacement with privately-owned, private profit-making commercial structures. Modern attempts at renewal began in the late 19th century in developed nations, and experienced an intense phase in the late 1940s under the rubric of reconstruction. The process has had a major impact on many urban landscapes, and has played an important role in the history and demographics of cities around the world. Urban renewal is a process whereby privately owned properties within a designated renewal area are purchased or taken by eminent domain by a municipal redevelopment authority, razed and then reconveyed to selected developers who devote them to other uses. Until 1970, the displaced owners and tenants received only the constitutionally-mandated "just compensation" specified in the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This measure of compensation covered only the fair market value of the taken property, and omitted compensation for a variety of incidental losses like, for example, moving expenses, loss of favorable financing and notably, business losses, such as loss of business goodwill. However the Act denies the displaced land owners the right to sue to enforce its provisions, so it is deemed an act of legislative grace rather than a constitutional right. In the 1970s the federal government and state governments enacted the Uniform Relocation Assistance Act which provides for limited compensation of some of these losses. Historically, urban redevelopment has been a controversial practice because opponents argue that taking private property by eminent domain for "public use" and then turning it over to redevelopers free of charge or for less than the acquisition cost (known as "land write-down"). Thus, in the controversial Connecticut case of Kelo v. City of New London (2005) the plan called for a redeveloper to lease the subject 90-acre waterfront property for $1 per year. This process is also carried out in rural areas, referred to as village renewal, though it may not be exactly the same in practice. In some cases, renewal may result in urban sprawl and less congestion when areas of cities receive freeways and expressways. Urban renewal has been seen by proponents as an economic engine and a reform mechanism, and by critics as a mechanism for control. It may enhance existing communities. On the other hand, some redevelopment projects have been failures, including the Kelo case, in which he U.S. Supreme Court upheld the taking by a 5 to 4 vote, but where nothing was built on the taken property. Many cities link the revitalization of the central business district and gentrification of residential neighborhoods to earlier urban renewal programs. Over time, urban renewal evolved into a policy based less on destruction and more on renovation and investment, and today is an integral part of many local governments, often combined with small and big business incentives...
