Exploring The Variability In Institutional Characteristics Related To Meeting Various National Stem Baccalaureate Agendas, Tim Schroeder
Teacher Education, Educational Leadership & Policy ETDs
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professions are said to drive the American economy, provide access to the middle class for underrepresented minorities, and bolster national security. Since the launch of Sputnik in 1957, American STEM educators have been under pressure to improve STEM educational outcomes. In order to respond to these pressures, education policy makers must understand the relationship between institutional characteristics and STEM outcomes. In this study, I articulate three specific national STEM agendas, and then I explore the relationship between these agendas and the institutional characteristics of America’s four-year colleges and universities.

Early-Childhood Computer-Based Testing: Effects Of A Digital Literacy Intervention On Student Confidence And Performance, 2018 Xavier University of Louisiana
Early-Childhood Computer-Based Testing: Effects Of A Digital Literacy Intervention On Student Confidence And Performance, Benjamin-David Christopher Legrand
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation
Early-childhood digital students grow up in a fast-evolving age of technology requiring them to use and create with technologies and demonstrate core content knowledge. Although third grade students are mandated to master a new language of standardized testing, a large percentage must also learn a language of technology to complete new computer-based tests to measure content mastery. Krashen (1982) defines high affective filter as negative emotional/motivational factors interfering with understanding and cognition. This high affective filter reduces confidence and negatively impacts measuring content mastery on new computerbased tests. Two third grade classrooms at a high-poverty metropolitan school participated in ...
Applied Critical Leadership: Centering Racial Justice And Decolonization In Professional Associations, Rachel E. Aho, Stephen John Quaye
Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs
With a history steeped in exclusion, segregation, political unrest, and glacial-paced progress, it is no surprise that higher education professionals continue to experience and illuminate issues, such as racism, colonization, and identity-based harm, particularly under the divisiveness of today’s presidential administration. Knowing this, leaders within higher education must prepare to meet these realities. To prepare students for navigating these challenges, educators often rely on the direction, guidance, and thought leadership produced via professional associations. As such, those involved in professional associations play a critical role in determining the priorities of the field. Given the tumultuous national climate, these priorities ...

Recruiting Community College Transfer Students, 2018 Lubbock Christian University
Recruiting Community College Transfer Students, Jody Reding
Contemporary Issues in Educational Leadership
Private faith-based colleges and universities are a strong fit for community college transfer students. However, far too many small private faith-based colleges and universities miss the mark when it comes to their successful recruitment. This paper seeks to address this issue and provide solutions for successfully recruiting community college transfer students. The number one question that leads decisions year in and year out for many small private faith-based colleges and universities is whether or not they can recruit and retain students (M. Brewer, personal communication, 2015). All too often, the focus of most admissions teams’ centers on traditional (new freshman ...

“I Didn’T Feel Alone”: A Phenomenological Study Of University Branch Campus Graduates, High Impact Practices, And Student Persistence, Jesse Raymond Neimeyer-Romero
Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations
University branch campuses play a vital role in today’s higher education field. Branch campuses help facilitate the delivery of knowledge, development, and learning opportunities to populations that may not have any other prospect in regard to pursuing their educational goals. Branch campuses have also become a new way for institutions of higher education to collaborate and work together to serve students’ interests. Yet, despite enrollment growth across thousands of higher education branch campuses that exist in the United States, the literature on branch campuses is scant. Furthermore, branch campuses, like their main campus counterparts, have a responsibility to ensure ...

Creating Job Security And Retaining Employees Among Different Generations In The Public Sector, 2018 University of New England
Creating Job Security And Retaining Employees Among Different Generations In The Public Sector, Kenneth R. Sisneros
All Theses And Dissertations
There is a need to train and retain the 85 million Generation Yers and 35 million Generation Xers within and entering the workforce to fill the Baby Boomers’ vacant positions, as 52 million of them continue to exit the workforce (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2014). The Baby Boomer generation is exiting the workforce with extensive institutional knowledge gained through years of experience within the public sector. Without the transfer of their experience and knowledge to younger generations, a loss of organizational knowledge will occur, adversely affecting organizations’ productivity and wasting taxpayer funds. Therefore, though Generation Xers may fill some vacancies ...

Self-Regulation, Co-Regulation, And Feedback In The Context Of Cross-Cultural Language Acquisition In Higher Education: A Conceptual Approach, Papia Bawa
Journal of Research Initiatives
Given the exponential growth in international student populations in the United States, supporting cross cultural language learners (CCLL) in developing their self and co-regulated learning is highly important. This paper presents a conceptual framework on the value of feedback within self-regulated versus co-regulated environments, in the context of cross- cultural language learning. We use the term cross cultural language learners (CCLL) to refer to international learners, in particular from Asia. When exploring the issues of cross cultural language acquisition relating to logographic (Chinese) and alphabetic (English) languages, we examine the literature that support self and co-regulated learning within the frame ...
Transformational Leadership In The Special Education Classroom And Its Impact On Student Connectedness, 2018 University of New England
Transformational Leadership In The Special Education Classroom And Its Impact On Student Connectedness, Stephen Taylor Burnham Jr.
All Theses And Dissertations
The study of leadership is often relegated to the political or business world. As it pertains to the field of education, often it is thought of as something that happens outside the classroom walls. This study has broken that barrier by focusing on the classroom and the ways leadership skills manifest themselves in that environment. Transformational leadership as defined by Burns (1978) and Bass (1999) was chosen as the leadership style for this study because it is widely accepted in the literature as a leadership style which is adept at increasing connections between leaders and followers. Increasing levels of school ...
