The Relationship Between Teacher Practice And Student Performance, Aubrey Johnson 2017 Seton Hall University

The Relationship Between Teacher Practice And Student Performance, Aubrey Johnson

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

The demand for educational accountability to improve student achievement has been the force behind education reform in recent years. On October 6, 2012, the state of New Jersey enacted the TEACHNJ Act, which reformed teacher tenure laws and required teacher tenure to be linked to their evaluation rating. To support the new tenure reform law, the state of New Jersey revamped its teacher evaluation system and developed an evaluation structure known as AchieveNJ, which allows for the use of multiple measures to evaluate teachers. These measures include components of both teacher practice and student achievement which are calculated to determine ...

Our Center for Excellence & Innovation has brought together our Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning, our Center for Excellence in Scholarship and Research, Assessment Coordinator and our Educational Technologists to serve faculty in a “one-stop shopping” venue. Through integrated marketing we inform faculty of resources and opportunities for professional development working diligently to ensure that faculty not only receive needed assistance but also experience a warm, welcoming environment. Seven principles of learning space design contribute to this collaborative, learner-centered environment: comfort, aesthetics, affordance, flow, equity, blending (a mixture of technological and face-to-face pedagogical resources.


Assessing Student Learning: Growing The Culture, Cultivating Buy-In, Improving Quality, Paul Force-Emery Mackie 2017 Minnesota State University - Mankato

Assessing Student Learning: Growing The Culture, Cultivating Buy-In, Improving Quality, Paul Force-Emery Mackie

Paul Force-Emery Mackie

All institutions face the common challenge of developing, conducting, and maintaining high quality, purposeful, and relevant student learning assessment processes and protocols. In 2012 Minnesota State University, Mankato created the University Assessment Coordinator position as a reassigned faculty line. This position initially focused on strengthening linkages between institutional, academic, and co-curricular/service program assessment needs through the development of training opportunities, program assessment of learning model development, reporting assistance, data interpretation, and information integration. This presentation highlights how the process and position was structured, challenges identified and addressed, and successes that emerged from the process.

Self-Study As Self-Knowledge: Integrating Shared Governance And Planning Structures In The Self-Study Process, Donald Larsson, Joan Roca, Scott Olson

Joan Roca, Ph. D.

Preparing for the Higher Learning Commission’s accreditation visit at Minnesota State University, Mankato entailed several challenges that arose within the three years prior to the visit: recent turnover in top administration posts, new initiatives in strategic planning, and plans to offer the institution’s first doctoral degrees, all of which had to be dealt with in the context of the HLC’s new criteria for accreditation. Thanks to the strong support of the new administration and established systems of self-governance, the Self-Study Committee was able to integrate and document the efforts of the administration, faculty, staff and students in ...

A Universal Design For Robotics Education, Mustafa Şahin Bülbül 2017 Kafkas University, Kars

A Universal Design For Robotics Education, Mustafa Şahin Bülbül

Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities

In this century technological and educational needs increase drastically. Out of local language, educators need to teach robotic language and use necessary technologies to design robots like Arduino set. This set let users to know less code/computer language and knowledge about electronics. Users may develop their own robots with this set. It also improves design and implementation skills. However, it is not a suitable design for blinds. Universal design approach suggests educators to design courses in a way to meet the needs of all participants. By this approach, learning environments are helpful and useful for participants with special needs ...

Teacher Voice In Global Conversations Around Education Access, Equity, And Quality, Charlina Gozali, Elizabeth Claassen Thrush, Michelle Soto-Peña, Christine Whang, Thomas F. Luschei

FIRE: Forum for International Research in Education

Despite public commitments internationally and nationally to include the voices of all stakeholders, the voices of teachers have continued to be marginalized in the literature and in policy-making related to global educational development. The purpose of the current study is to examine the process of invoking teacher voice using a sample of international teachers participating in a US-based teacher exchange program. Toward this end, we conducted semi-structured interviews with 16 teachers from 14 countries and four continents (all participants in the Teaching Excellence and Achievement [TEA] program). Results demonstrate that teacher voice was more personal rather than systemic, narrative rather ...


Measuring Quality Beyond Test Scores: The Impact Of Regional Context On Curriculum Implementation (In Northern Uganda), Carol Anne Spreen, Jillian J. Knapczyk 2017 New York University

Measuring Quality Beyond Test Scores: The Impact Of Regional Context On Curriculum Implementation (In Northern Uganda), Carol Anne Spreen, Jillian J. Knapczyk

FIRE: Forum for International Research in Education

Although global initiatives have brought attention to the lack of quality in education systems worldwide; the question remains, how do we implement quality education? Teachers, a vital component of the education process, are not usually included in these global conversations; this results in government initiatives missing key obstacles faced by teachers daily. In this article, we used a rights-based approach to examine the Quality Educators Initiative, specifically its curricular component, as it tries to assist teachers in northern Uganda, an area whose schools and communities are vastly under-resourced and dealing with post-conflict effects. Using a mixed-methods approach, we highlight teachers ...

Shelley Kinash

This case presentation on postgraduate student diversity is grounded in Australian national research on postgraduate student experiences. This is not a typical or traditional case study, in that the pages that follow present perspectives, stories and proposed solutions from a large number of people. To bind the case presentation to one or two narratives or ‘cases’ would severely limit the impact. This case presentation is therefore thematic, interweaving many stories, quotes, descriptions, and perspectives on postgraduate student diversity, specifically, within the context of the belonging, course delivery and the learning experience, and balancing priorities.
