An Examination Of Online Discussions In Higher Education: Leveraging Technology To Increase Learner Engagement And Collaboration, Bettina M. Mrusek Ph.D., Felix De Brito Neto Ph.D.

National Training Aircraft Symposium (NTAS)

The online learning environment continues to evolve, seeking to meet the needs of students and researchers alike. The role of discussion boards in this process, however, continues to be an area of concern and research, particularly in aviation and aerospace higher education. While it has been argued that convenience should not replace quality, scholarship shows that many online discussion boards fail to achieve the intended transfer and collaborative construction of knowledge among students, which is of utmost importance for the education of aviation and aerospace professionals. Research also suggests that learner engagement and collaboration are necessary in order to achieve ...


An Examination Of The Effect Of Multiple Supervisors On Flight Trainees' Performance, Dongyun Yi 2018 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

An Examination Of The Effect Of Multiple Supervisors On Flight Trainees' Performance, Dongyun Yi

National Training Aircraft Symposium (NTAS)

One of the major roles of the flight supervisory control during flight training is that a trainee is guided to stay within acceptable range of flight performance parameters. Under the supervisory control during flight training, however, a trainee may perceive psychological stress. Literature suggests that when pilots are monitored by flight supervisor during flight training, their perception of psychological stress may increase and thus, result in increasing flight performance. This work proposes to examine whether the presence of flight supervisors has an effect on trainee’s performance. This study will further find the number of flight supervisors needed for pilot ...

Teaching Quality: Core Content Implemented Through Evidence-Based Methods With Structure, Support And Challenge, Eckhard Klieme 2018 Goethe University

Teaching Quality: Core Content Implemented Through Evidence-Based Methods With Structure, Support And Challenge, Eckhard Klieme

2009 - 2018 ACER Research Conferences

Educational research aims to replace traditional notions of ‘good teaching’ with evidence-based theories of ‘successful teaching’ and develop concepts and measures of teaching quality that can inform teacher training, professional development and evaluation. Scholars have presented various conceptualisations, including constructivist as well as direct instruction models, Western and Eastern approaches, comprehensive paradigms (e.g. ‘mastery learning’ or ‘inquiry-based science education’) as well as discrete teaching practices such as scaffolding, peer tutoring or formative assessment. Content coverage and the quality of the subject matter taught (also called ‘opportunity to learn’) have been identified as strong factors. This keynote presentation will attempt ...

Communicating Student Learning Progress: What Does That Mean And Can It Make A Difference?, Hilary Hollingsworth, Jonathan Heard 2018 Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER)

Communicating Student Learning Progress: What Does That Mean And Can It Make A Difference?, Hilary Hollingsworth, Jonathan Heard

2009 - 2018 ACER Research Conferences

Traditionally in schools, the main method of communicating students’ academic performance has been the summative end-of-semester report, and the focus of much of this communication has centred on reporting achievement against year-level standards. While semester reporting largely remains established practice, the advent of new school management systems has seen schools embrace a practice known as ‘continuous reporting’. Though well-intended, early analysis would suggest that the potential benefits of this relatively new process are inconsistently understood, and reveal a confusion between progressive instalments of feedback versus feedback on student progress. Such confusion may be indicative of other gaps in the organisational ...


The Role Of Evidence In Teaching And Learning, Geoff N. Masters AO 2018 Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER)

The Role Of Evidence In Teaching And Learning, Geoff N. Masters Ao

2009 - 2018 ACER Research Conferences

Highly-effective teaching requires evidence-informed decision making at crucial points in the teaching process. First, effective teachers use quality evidence to establish the points individual learners have reached in their learning. This enables teachers to identify starting points for further teaching and learning and to ensure that each student is given learning opportunities at an appropriate level of challenge. In contrast, much teaching instead assumes all students will be appropriately challenged by common year-level curricula. The process of establishing and understanding where students are in their learning often requires detailed diagnostic evidence of individual misunderstandings and obstacles to learning progress. Second ...


The Power Of Pictures: Drawing On Visual Sign-Systems To Teach Inference In Gerstein’S The Man Between Two Towers, Shannon Howrey 2018 Kennesaw State University

The Power Of Pictures: Drawing On Visual Sign-Systems To Teach Inference In Gerstein’S The Man Between Two Towers, Shannon Howrey

The Journal of Balanced Literacy Research and Instruction

The ability to infer while reading is a critical part of meaning-making. Readers who infer go beyond the literal words on the page by adding information to the text and making implicit connections between the text and their prior knowledge (Barr, Blacowicz, Bates, Katz, & Kaufman, 2013). This skill allows them to establish causal relationships between story events, connect the events to their personal experiences, and determine relationships, motivations, and emotions within and between characters. Drawing on dual coding theory and visual literacy principles, the author demonstrates how the lines in the illustrations of The Man Between Two Towers assist the ...
