The U.S. Census Bureau released three American Community Survey briefs about labor force participation and work status of people 65 years and older, School Enrollment and Work Status: 2011 and Changes in Self-Employment: 2010 to 2011.
Interesting findings include: the percentage of people 65 and older in the labor force increased from 12.1 percent in 1990 to 16.1 percent in 2010 (this increase was greater for women), the majority of graduate students worked at least part-time during the year. Additionally, incorporated self-employed workers were more likely to work in management and professional occupations and had higher employment outcomes in 2011 than non-incorporated self-employed workers.
The American Community Survey offers significant and important statistics about people and housing for every community and is the only source of local estimates for most of 40 topics including education, occupation, language, ancestry and housing costs.

Dr. David Stein, Educational Studies (EHE), and his team have received a grant from the Office of Distance Education and eLearning. His project was selected from a strong application pool by a team of faculty, staff, and students assembled from throughout the university. Dr. Stein and his team will use the grant to develop an open, online course designed to help graduate students to develop and conduct their own online teaching.
The course will give students important introductions to essential skills and best practices for online teaching and the course itself will provide them experience as an online student. The course will also reduce a gap in the current preparation for online instruction and help OSU graduate students develop valuable skills. This project will debut with a pilot course section during Fall 2013. After the pilot, the course will be available to any students looking for self-paced training about how to teach online.
