Influencing Metacognition Through Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning: Lessons Learned From A Faculty Learning Community, Sara Ahten, Rob Anson, Ingrid Brudenell, James Goodman, Eric Orton, Kathy Reavy 2009 Boise State University

Influencing Metacognition Through Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning: Lessons Learned From A Faculty Learning Community, Sara Ahten, Rob Anson, Ingrid Brudenell, James Goodman, Eric Orton, Kathy Reavy

James A. Goodman

Over an academic year, five faculty and one staff member from diverse disciplines at Boise State University formed a faculty learning community (FLC). Meeting in-person twice a month, the community members worked to complete scholarly group and individual learning projects. Metacognition emerged as a theme and goal for collaborative computer-supported learning activities. They developed a model that fostered metacognition within the FLC as well as in student-focused learning projects. Overall, the projects illustrate the model and how faculty can influence metacognition though computer-supported collabora- tive learning. Specific applications and suggestions to promote learning are included.

The Regulation Of Personal Health Records In Canada, James Williams, Jens Weber 2009 University of Toronto

The Regulation Of Personal Health Records In Canada, James Williams, Jens Weber

James B Williams

The term ‘personal health record’ (PHR) refers to a family of systems that empower patients to manage their own individual health information. Recently introduced into the marketplace, PHR systems have significant implications for health care delivery in Canada. This paper contains a rigorous introduction to the online PHR, including the issues, benefits and risks inherent in the use of these systems. The main contribution of the paper is an analysis of the status of private sector PHR systems under Canada’s current regulatory environment. Our claim is that these increasingly popular applications are subject to a regulatory regime that fails ...


El Mito De La Violencia Religiosa, William Cavanaugh 2009 Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology

El Mito De La Violencia Religiosa, William Cavanaugh

William T. Cavanaugh

El mito de la violencia religiosa consiste en creer que la “religión” es un fenómeno endémico de todas las culturas y épocas de la humanidad, separable de otros ámbitos de la actividad del hombre que, como la política o la economía, son calificados de “seculares”. Que es, además, particularmente proclive al absolutismo, la disgregación y la irracionalidad, y por consiguiente a la violencia. Cavanaugh demuestra en esta obra, argumentando a partir de fuentes históricas, teológicas y jurídicas, que la “religión” no es una realidad transcultural y transhistórica ni se puede separar de las demás esferas de la actividad del hombre ...

The Urgency Of Building Oromo National Consensus, Asafa Jalata 2009 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

The Urgency Of Building Oromo National Consensus, Asafa Jalata

Asafa Jalata

First, the paper explains how some political achievements without strong organizational and institutional structures have increased political crises in the Oromo national movement. Second, it identifies and explores external and internal factors that have hampered the development of the Oromo national consensus. Third, it suggests what Oromo activists and political organizations should do to overcome their ideological and political weaknesses and political ineptness to develop a national declaration that will be the central guiding principle of the Oromo national movement for human liberation and sovereignty in Oromia and beyond.

Pembroke College 302: Abbreviated Gospel Book Or Gospel Lectionary?, Elizabeth Teviotdale 2009 Western Michigan University

Pembroke College 302: Abbreviated Gospel Book Or Gospel Lectionary?, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A consideration of the character of the text of Cambridge, Pembroke College, MS 302, a series of excerpts from the four canonical Gospels in (with one exception) biblical order preceded by an incomplete set of canon tables, a manuscript produced in England in the mid-11th century. Concludes that it was probably created as a private devotional book for a high-ranking Benedictine monk, a prayer book intended to resemble a Gospel book and to present a full account of the life of Christ.


Evolution And Scientific Theories Of Changeability, Boguslawa Lewandowska 2009 Polish Academy of Sciences, Institute of Fundamental Technological Research

Evolution And Scientific Theories Of Changeability, Boguslawa Lewandowska

Bogusława Lewandowska

The key-problem of the presented thesis is that evolutionary processes are conditioned both by unique phenomena and probabilistic ones. And because of the probabilistic factors, we are talking on changeability of evolution. It is not an easy task to model evolutionary processes, and sa it is shown in this paper, an attempt at making this modelling changeability in the natural sciences, in the framework of determinism and indeterminism, appears to be inadequate to apprehend evolutionary processes. It is concluded here, that only autodeterminism is appeared as a possible framework for solving the problem, as delivering possibility to present the causal ...

Christopher Marlowe The Craftsman: Lives, Stage, And Page, M. Stapleton 2009 Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne

Christopher Marlowe The Craftsman: Lives, Stage, And Page, M. Stapleton

M. L. Stapleton

Contributions to this volume explore the idea of Marlowe as a working artist, in keeping with John Addington Symonds' characterization of him as a "sculptor-poet." Throughout the body of his work-including not only the poems and plays, but also his forays into translation and imitation-a distinguished company of established and emerging literary scholars traces how Marlowe conceives an idea, shapes and refines it, then remakes and remodels it, only to refashion it further in his writing process.

These essays necessarily overlap with one another in the categories of lives, stage, and page, which signals their interdependent nature regarding questions of ...
