Post Secondary Value Commission

May 21, 2019

Post Secondary Value Commission
https://www.postsecondaryvalue.org/

The Commission on the Value of Postsecondary Education (Postsecondary Value Commission) will focus on the economic returns of education after high school, recognizing that there are real and significant non-economic returns, such as developing critical and creative thinking skills and enhanced health and civic participation, many of which are directly related to employment and career outcomes. Drawing on current research, the commission will approach the value of certificates and degrees, at a minimum, in terms of of where a student enrolls and what they study, how much they pay for their education, whether or not they complete a credential, and their post-college earnings. Equity is at the center of the commission’s work. It is essential to understand whether and how colleges and universities create value for all students, especially low-income students and students of color, who experience greater challenges achieving certificates and degrees and realizing their economic benefits. he commission is made up of 30 leaders and experts from inside and outside higher education. Members bring a broad and diverse range of experience to this work as educators, executives, researchers, advocates, and students. And they are united in their commitment to expanding educational opportunity and ensuring that opportunity doesn’t depend on race and income.

Public Domain Day 2019

January 09, 2019

Public Domain Day 2019
https://law.duke.edu/cspd/publicdomainday/2019/


For the first time in over 20 years, on January 1, 2019, published works will enter the US public domain.1 Works from 1923 will be free for all to use and build upon, without permission or fee. Google Books will offer the full text of books from that year, instead of showing only snippet views or authorized previews. The Internet Archive will add books, movies, music, and more to its online library. HathiTrust has made over 50,000 titles from 1923 available in its digital library. Community theaters are planning screenings of the films. Students will be free to adapt and publicly perform the music. Because these works are in the public domain, anyone can make them available, where you can rediscover and enjoy them. (Empirical studies have shown that public domain books are less expensive, available in more editions and formats, and more likely to be in print—see here, here, and here.) In addition, the expiration of copyright means that you’re free to use these materials, for education, for research, or for creative endeavors—whether it’s translating the books, making your own versions of the films, or building new music based on old classics. This will be added to Student Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Education and Academic Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™.
