... This section describes the key elements of an TT-transformed educational environment identified at the workshop and by the committee. The TT-transformed environment can be characterized as a sustainable ecology of IT-enabZed learning resources and practices that have evolved through the consensus of an active community of authors and users, informed by an evidence-based understanding of effective teaching and learning.
From page 24...
... The embedded data will be characterized by open markup formats that reflect standards for machine-supported communication and interoperability. The standards will also be designed to address a complete set of user-support requirements: application context (e.g., by discipline, course level, sector, etc.~; instruction (e.g., tutorials, evaluation history, help resources, etc.~; attributes (e.g., learning style, gender, world view, etc.~; pedagogy (e.g., objective, learning outcomes, assessment, etc.~; and other preferences (e.g., display, configuration, etc.~.
From page 25...
... Efforts to advance the STEM learning experience wait enjoy strong support among academic, government, and industry institutions and officials. A central governing body at the core of the community waif be an organizational champion with a mission of improving efficiency and effectiveness, ensuring integrity and quality, and promoting the dissemination and use of TT-enabled learning resources and practices.
From page 26...
... The dissemination of TT-enabled teaching and learning resources waif be supported by a novel legal framework (e.g., open licenses and attribution systems) that promote creation and sharing, while maintaining incentives for authors (including individuals, teams, and institutions)
