The Spectre Of Class: Educating And Advising For Self-Efficacy, Mikaila Arthur 2009 Rhode Island College

The Spectre Of Class: Educating And Advising For Self-Efficacy, Mikaila Arthur

Mikaila Mariel Lemonik Arthur

In her essay “The Spectre of Class: Educating and Advising for Self-Efficacy” Mikaila Mariel Lemonik Arthur discusses the importance of building student self-efficacy. However, as Arthur points out, creating an environment where students believe in their capabilities to learn and perform at a particular level is deeply influenced by one’s class background. As Arthur states, “These students have grown up in a culture that values individualism and places responsibility for success and blame for failure squarely on the shoulders of each person.” Arthur speaks more generally about creating self-efficacy and offers insight in how to maneuver around and transcend ...


The Interface Of Neoliberal Globalization, Science Education And Indigenous African Knowledges In Africa, Edward Shizha 2009 Wilfrid Laurier University

The Interface Of Neoliberal Globalization, Science Education And Indigenous African Knowledges In Africa, Edward Shizha

Edward Shizha

In a globalized neo-colonial world, an insidious and often debilitating crisis of knowledge construction and legitimation does not only continue to undermine the local and indigenous knowledge systems, but it also perpetuates a neo-colonial and oppressive socio-cultural science educational system that debilitates the social and cultural identity of the indigenous African student. As Schissel and Wotherspoon (2003: vii) argue, "Educational relations are critical elements of our humanity and sociability." This paper explores the homogenizing effects of globalization and the oppressive forces of neo-colonialism that continue to work together to privilege "western-based scientific knowledge" at the expense of indigenous knowledge systems ...

Health-Related Quality Of Life Following A Surgical Weight Loss Intervention, Deborah Raines, Douglas Sutton 2009 Florida Atlantic University

Health-Related Quality Of Life Following A Surgical Weight Loss Intervention, Deborah Raines, Douglas Sutton

Deborah A. Raines

Nursing is concerned with the well-being of the whole person; therefore, understanding the patient's perspective of the impact of a surgical weight loss intervention (SWLI) is essential. The purpose of this study was to examine the self-reported health-related quality of life of individuals after a SWLI. A convenience sample of participants in a post-SWLI support group completed the SF-12v2, a demographic form and a global quality of life measure. Findings indicate that although overall quality of life was rated excellent or very good, self-report of health-related quality on social functioning, vitality, and mental health was less positive. The findings ...

Mock Trials And The Debate Between Litigation Driven Versus Management Driven Models Of Business Law Instruction, Pamela Gershuny 2009 Southeast Missouri State University

Mock Trials And The Debate Between Litigation Driven Versus Management Driven Models Of Business Law Instruction, Pamela Gershuny

Pamela Gershuny

This article offers a compromise position in the longstanding and often heated debate between proponents of the Management Driven Model for teaching undergraduate Legal Environment of Business courses and those scholars supporting the Litigation Driven Model. The goal in both camps is to stimulate a desire to learn. This is especially challenging for business law professors, however, as undergraduate business students usually enroll because it is required, not because they have a deep and profound interest in learning the law. This study was designed to gain a greater understanding of the learning outcomes associated with the mock trial as an ...

Systematic instructional design provides a crucial vehicle for designers and teachers to develop efficient and effective learning environments (Dick, Carey, & Carey, 2005). Formative program evaluation provides an opportunity for designers and teachers to modify previous instructional experiences, to foster enhancement of student learning and performance (Russ-Eft & Preskill, 2001). This paper will outline the program evaluation conducted on a systematically designed instructional unit for a large community college in the Northeastern US, located in upstate New York.
