Peer Research Mentors At Gettysburg College: Transforming Student Library Jobs Into High-Impact Learning Experiences, Clinton K. Baugess, Mallory R. Jallas, Meggan D. Smith, Janelle Wertzberger
Musselman Library Staff Publications
Research and Instruction librarians at Gettysburg College developed a Peer Research Mentor (PRM) program for undergraduate students. The program is designed to empower a group of student employees to work in partnership with experienced librarians in order to increase a PRM’s own research skills and support other student researchers more effectively. The program focuses on student training, reference service, and outreach to other students. The authors share the development of the program; describe their approach to training, supervision, and assessment; and offer insight about how to operate and sustain a similar program with limited resources.
Leadership Competencies For The Community College Department Chairperson, 2017 University of Southern Mississippi
Leadership Competencies For The Community College Department Chairperson, Jason Carl Ross
Published in 2005, the American Association of Community Colleges developed a list of six leadership competencies deemed by stakeholders as essential to a community college leadership position. The six AACC leadership competencies include organizational strategy, resource management, communication, collaboration, community college advocacy, and professionalism, and they have been well researched with upper-level community college leadership, student services personnel, and boards of trustees. This research examined these competencies as they relate to the community college department chairperson.
Often viewed as a path to upper level leadership, the community college chairperson is both a faculty member and administrator, and chairpersons must represent ...
A Motivational Profile Of Nurses Who Pursue Doctoral Education, 2017 University of Southern Mississippi
A Motivational Profile Of Nurses Who Pursue Doctoral Education, Tomekia Yvette Luckett
The need for nurses to pursue doctoral education is imperative to the professionalization of the discipline of nursing in light of the changing healthcare environment. Presently, < 1% of the nursing workforce possesses a doctoral degree (“Transforming Nursing Education,” 2016), albeit recommendations from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) (2010) admonish the need to increase the number of doctoral-prepared nurses. The need to understand characteristics of nurses who seek doctoral education is critical in planning long-term strategies for nursing education in the United States (US) (Kovner, Brewer, Katigbak, Djukic, & Fatehi, 2012). In conjunction with describing characteristics of nurses pursuing doctoral education, this research describes the motivational orientation and factors of registered nurses (RNs) pursuing doctoral education.
A descriptive correlational design was utilized to examine concepts relating to motivational orientation of RNs pursuing doctoral education. Participants were divided into two categories: (a) RNs seeking the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree and (b) RNs pursuing the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree. A total of 173 RNs enrolled in either a Ph.D. or DNP program in the Gulf South region of the US comprised the final sample. Binary logistic regression ...

Managing For Quality In Higher Education: A Biblical Perspective, 2017 Andrews University
Managing For Quality In Higher Education: A Biblical Perspective, Ben A. Maguad
Andrews University Teaching and Learning Conference
Although higher education has long been committed to excellence, its pace of change and improvement has been slow and episodic at best due to external pressures. To overcome the many obstacles confronting it, strong leadership is needed in all areas: academic, administrative, student life, and service. The challenge is to clarify the principles, knowledge, and skill bases necessary for effective higher education leadership. The spiritual dimension is perhaps the missing piece that today’s institutions need to effect lasting and meaningful change in the behaviors or attitudes of their people from the top administrator to the entry-level employee.

Recognizing College Students Of Today: Generational Shifts Prompt Pedagogical Shifts, Kristen Cvancara, Kristen P. Treinen
Kristen Cvancara, Ph. D.
As educators strive to continually improve the learning potential of the students in our classrooms, it is wise to evaluate traits of the students that may influence the effectiveness of the pedagogical methods employed. To this end, this essay introduces the reader to descriptions of today’s college students that identify this cohort as unique in learning style as well as life experience from all previous generations. An assessment method was used to investigate the degree to which current students identify with these generational stereotypes. The method and results of the assessment are discussed, and suggestions for adopting new pedagogical ...

Diversity More Than Race, Gender In Higher Ed., 2017 CUNY Bernard M Baruch College
Diversity More Than Race, Gender In Higher Ed., Aldemaro Romero Jr.
Publications and Research
Most people when talking about diversity think
of matters revolving around race and gender, and
while those are obvious and important topics, the
fact of the matter is that the definition of diversity
is much larger.
Today diversity is seen in two dimensions.
The first one is what is called inherent diversity,
the diversity that is beyond people’s control.
Obviously, these issues include race and gender,
but also include national origin, age, sexual orientation,
disability, religious affiliation and socioeconomic
status. Certainly, you can change your
religious affiliation or socioeconomic status over
time, but being raised in a particular religion ...
The Role Of Pedagogical Beliefs In Emerging Technology Integration: An Exploratory Case Study Of Faculty Perspectives, 2017 School of Advanced Studies, University of Phoenix
The Role Of Pedagogical Beliefs In Emerging Technology Integration: An Exploratory Case Study Of Faculty Perspectives, Marianne Justus
The Qualitative Report
The integration of social media, mobile/wireless and Web 2.0 technologies in higher education supports student engagement locally and globally to create new knowledge using innovative strategies. However, there remains a disconnect between the positive perceptions of faculty regarding the value of integrating technology and its adoption in online contexts. The purpose of this qualitative exploratory case study was to investigate the factors that influence faculty to integrate innovative and emerging technologies, and to consider whether pedagogical beliefs influence choice and adoption of technology. Participants included graduate and undergraduate faculty members who had experience teaching online; were representative of ...

Racial And Ethnic Diversity In Undergraduate Social Work Programs: How Are Programs In Rural Areas Faring?, David L. Beimers, Brian Warner, Paul Force-Emery Mackie

Social work programs have a long-standing commitment to recruiting and educating racially and ethnically diverse students. However, some programs in rural areas have greater difficulty meeting this commitment. This study examined racial and ethnic diversity within baccalaureate social work (BSW) programs, focusing primarily on student enrollment, faculty, perceptions of diversity, and interventions to attract students. Program directors of BSW programs from 10 Midwestern states were surveyed. Forty-two programs responded. The results indicate that as a whole, social work programs differ in their levels of racial and ethnic diversity. However, BSW programs in rural areas tend to have fewer students and ...
