Despite a stressful process, Clinical Nurse Faculty (CNF) are ultimately responsible for assigning a grade indicating that a student successfully met clinical course outcomes and standards of safe practice required to progress (Amicucci, 2012). The purpose of this descriptive correlational study was to explore the relationships between perceived role strain (PRS), perceived faculty stress (PFS), and perceived organizational support (POS) for CNF who faced the decision to assign a failing grade to a student in a clinical practicum. A national sample of 390 predominantly full-time, female, experienced CNF teaching in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs completed the online survey consisting ...


The Rise Of Adhd And Effects Of Alternative Treatment In Adolescents, Jennifer Villarina 2015 Dominican University of California

The Rise Of Adhd And Effects Of Alternative Treatment In Adolescents, Jennifer Villarina

Scholarly and Creative Works Conference

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a syndrome that makes it difficult for people to focus, control behavior and regulate activity. Many with ADHD move constantly and are impulsive. They cannot seem to follow directions and are easily bored or frustrated with tasks. Although these behaviors are normally observed in children, they are more severe in those with ADHD. The symptoms of ADHD make it difficult for children to function at school and home. Exposure to toxins, injury to the brain and imbalance of neurotransmitters can affect the development of the brain (LeFever, Arcona & Antonuccio, 2003). The most common way ...


Student Learning In High-Impact Practice Mass Communication Courses, Douglas J. Swanson Ed.D APR 2015 California State University - Fullerton

Student Learning In High-Impact Practice Mass Communication Courses, Douglas J. Swanson Ed.D Apr

Douglas J. Swanson, Ed.D APR

College and university high-impact practice (HIP) courses involve students in intensive values-focused learning inside and/ or outside of the traditional classroom environment. Much research has documented that participation in HIPs increases student retention and graduation rates. At the same time, the nontraditional learning structure of an HIP course can complicate a thorough assessment of student learning. Anecdotal evidence reflects strong involvement in HIPs by mass communication programs, although communication efforts in this regard are not as well documented in the literature as efforts in other fields. This essay briefly defines HIPs and presents an appropriate theory that would guide HIPs ...

Beliefs Regarding Faculty Participation In Peer Reviews Of Online Courses, Andria F. Schwegler, Barbara W. Altman, Lisa M. Bunkowski 2015 Texas A&M University-Central Texas

Beliefs Regarding Faculty Participation In Peer Reviews Of Online Courses, Andria F. Schwegler, Barbara W. Altman, Lisa M. Bunkowski

Internet Learning

Prior to implementing a voluntary, unofficial Quality Matters peer review process for online courses at our institution, several faculty members openly expressed concerns about the process. To systematically identify and examine how highly endorsed these beliefs actually were, we used the Theory of Planned Behavior (Ajzen, 1985) to investigate faculty beliefs and their plans to participate in the peer review. This behavior prediction model provided a logical theoretical basis for this investigation because it targets intentions to perform volitional behaviors and directly examines salient beliefs underlying attitudes, subjective norms, and perceived behavioral control toward the behavior. Though differences in belief ...

Internet Learning

This article describes an interdisciplinary research project that resulted from the creation of a community of practice (CoP) for faculty teaching blended and online courses at a small, historically black university. Using a flipped-classroom approach, two modules of a Principles of Biology course were redesigned. Already-created PowerPoints were converted to screencasts and homework was completed in small groups during class. Results showed that students in the flipped classroom performed better on application-type questions but showed no difference on overall test scores or on knowledge-type questions. A survey of student perceptions found that students liked the autonomy to watch content videos ...

Effect Of Student Readiness On Student Success In Online Courses, Leah A. Geiger, Daphne Morris, Susan L. Suboez, Kay Shattuck, Arthur Viterito

Internet Learning

This research determined the effect of student readiness on student success in online courses that were of quality course design; were taught by experienced, engaging instructors; and were delivered within a well-supported and familiar Learning Management System (LMS). The research team hypothesized that student success in well-designed courses (those that meet the Quality Matters standards) and that are taught by experienced, engaging faculty is most influenced by student readiness factors, including individual attributes (such as motivation), life factors, comprehension, general knowledge, reading rate and recall, and typing speed and accuracy. A goal of the study was to determine which of ...

Get Rid Of The Gray: Make Accessibility More Black And White!, Erin Blauvelt

Internet Learning

The Quality Matters Rubric (Quality Matters, 2011), a nationally recognized benchmark for the quality of the design of online courses, holds accessibility as an essential element of a high-quality online course. Creating and editing courses with accessible elements can be difficult, both in understanding and in process, as being able to interpret and administer the technical standards of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (1998) takes time and study. Customizing a definition of accessibility in online courses and creating the specific elements and best practices for an institution is essential in carrying out a plan for editing and ...
