Social, Economic, and Workforce Implications of IT and IT Workforce Development (SEW) Interagency Working Group (IWG)


Overview

Consistent with the draft NITRD Strategic Plan, the SEW IWG coordinates the activities of the Social, Economic and Workforce Implications of Information Technology (IT) and IT Workforce Development Program Component Area (PCA), including the work of the IWG’s subsidiary Team focusing on IT and education.


The activities funded under SEW focus on

i) the co-evolution of IT and social/economic systems,
ii) interactions between people and IT devices and capabilities,
iii) the workforce development, training, and education needs arising from the growing demand for productive next-generation workers skilled in IT, including graduate fellowships and
iv) the role of innovative IT applications in education and training.


A key goal of SEW research and outreach activities is to enable individuals and society to better understand and anticipate the uses and consequences of IT, so that this knowledge can inform policymaking, IT designs, and the IT user community, and can broaden participation in IT education and careers.

Abstract: MERLOT, the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching is the international community of more than 125,000 librarians, teachers, and learners who use the MERLOT digital library of 46,000+ free, peer-reviewed Open Education Resources (OER) to support teaching and learning. MERLOT has been updated and expanded to provide improved usability and search features for users to easily locate open resources, and to access and interact with the large number of MERLOT communities. This session will describe MERLOT II, the most recent major release of the system and touch upon a few institutional initiatives that use the platform to provide quality and affordable choices for higher education students and instructors.
