The Impact Of Intercollegiate Athletics In Higher Education, Eric T. Vanover, Michael M. DeBowes 2013 Old Dominion University

The Impact Of Intercollegiate Athletics In Higher Education, Eric T. Vanover, Michael M. Debowes

Higher Education Politics & Economics

The place of athletics in American higher education has been defended and criticized for well over one hundred years (Camp, 1893). Having become such a popular cultural attraction and tradition, as well as a potential method of generating revenue, the role of college athletics has broadened beyond a student-oriented activity. This article reviews the different ways intercollegiate athletics influences the reputation, operation, and quality of higher education.

Policies That Enhance Learning And Teaching, Shannon M. Chance, Pamela L. Eddy, Gavin Duffy, Brian Bowe, Jen Harvey 2013 Dublin Institute of Technology

Policies That Enhance Learning And Teaching, Shannon M. Chance, Pamela L. Eddy, Gavin Duffy, Brian Bowe, Jen Harvey

Articles

Educational institutions often implement policies with the intention of influencing how learning and teaching occur. Generally, such policies are not as effective as their makers would like; changing the behavior of third-level teachers proves difficult. Nevertheless, a policy instituted in 2006 at the Dublin Institute of Technology has met with success: each newly hired faculty member must have a post-graduate qualification in “Learning and Teaching” or successfully complete one within the first two years of employment. The intention is to build teachers’ knowledge about student-centered pedagogies and their capacity to implement them. As a result of this policy (and associated ...


Two Decades Of Rpl/Apel In Ireland: Practitioner Views, Anne Murphy 2013 Dublin Institute of Technology

Two Decades Of Rpl/Apel In Ireland: Practitioner Views, Anne Murphy

Level 3

My first involvement with APEL was in 1990 when I was invited to design a system by which cohorts of experiences practitioners in the disability training sector could achieve a sectoral qualification primarily through recognition of prior certificated and experiential learning. A taught route to the particular qualification was already in operation in partnership between the Adult Education Centre in St Patrick’s College, Maynooth (now National University of Ireland, Maynooth) and the National Rehabilitation Board. The trainers’ qualification was an essential element of quality assurance for the sector with funding support provided by the EU Social Fund. However, it ...

Using Wikis To Support Peer Assessment Activities In Higher Education, Yanyan Sun, Teresa Franklin, Tian Luo

STEMPS Faculty Publications

This study explored the effectiveness of using wikis as an environment to support peer-assessment in higher education settings. The participants of this study were nineteen per-serviced teachers who enrolled in an undergraduate course on the application of instructional technologies in classroom. In the study, the participants created their personal wiki pages within a course wiki and formed groups of three or four. Five peer-assessment activities were assigned, in which the participants uploaded their class projects to their wiki pages and went to their group member’s pages to provide feedback. The participants were expected to evaluate other’s projects in ...

Digital Divide: The Roles Of Access And Self-Efficacy On College Readiness, Kristen Rojas 2013 Lynn University

Digital Divide: The Roles Of Access And Self-Efficacy On College Readiness, Kristen Rojas

Student Theses, Dissertations and Projects

This study examined how the roles of computer access, demographics, and self-efficacy on college readiness mastery for high school seniors in an affluent suburb in Southeastern Florida. Data was collected from an online survey using a quasi-experimental setting and a convenient sample of 322 high school seniors at a single public high school location. Statistical analysis was done using SPSS software to determine if differences exist between access, demographics, and self-efficacy contribute to college readiness mastery.

Results from this study revealed that a digital divide existed; also, findings within groups were different for those with household income over $100,000 ...


The Internationalization Of Higher Education In Southeast Asia: Three Case Studies From Singapore, Thailand, And Vietnam, Vannapond Suttichujit 2013 Lynn University

The Internationalization Of Higher Education In Southeast Asia: Three Case Studies From Singapore, Thailand, And Vietnam, Vannapond Suttichujit

Student Theses, Dissertations and Projects

The increase of international economic collaboration as a result of globalization has an impact on various aspects of society at the regional level. To improve the effectiveness of such collaboration, the government of numerous countries begins to focus on internationalizing the education system as an approach to increase the level of global competence among the local population. Nevertheless, the results of integrating the international elements in each county are often varied whereby some countries are able to conform to the international policies according to the standards set by global agencies while others distort the international policies to conform to the ...


Enhancing The Professionalisation Of Student Affairs Through Assessment, Ann M. Gansemer-Topf 2013 Iowa State Univeristy

Enhancing The Professionalisation Of Student Affairs Through Assessment, Ann M. Gansemer-Topf

Education Publications

The past decades have seen an increase in the attention and focus of student affairs work in Africa. As the profession works to strengthen its reputation and value within higher education through conferences, organisations and publications, student affairs professionals can also raise the stature of the profession through work on their individual campuses. Engaging in assessment may be one such opportunity. As a way to create a common language regarding student affairs assessment, this paper provides an overview of the definitions, types and purposes of assessment. The thought is that viewing assessment as an integral, rather than ‘extra’ aspect of ...


Making Voices Visible: Teacher Research In A Community College Early Childhood Teacher Education Program, Debra Murphy 2013 Lesley University

Making Voices Visible: Teacher Research In A Community College Early Childhood Teacher Education Program, Debra Murphy

Educational Studies Dissertations

Teacher research has been included in university and graduate teacher education programs for the past 2 decades. Recently, associate degree programs have also begun to engage their students in teacher research. What happens when community college early childhood students conduct teacher research as a course assignment? This study involved 8 former community college early childhood education students who had recently completed teacher research projects as part of their coursework in 1 of 3 different courses. Data sources included students’ written reports of teacher research, classroom field notes, photographs of student data, and interviews with each participant. The study was informed ...


Learning From The Inside Out: A Narrative Study Of College Teacher Development, Anne Benoit 2013 Lesley University

Learning From The Inside Out: A Narrative Study Of College Teacher Development, Anne Benoit

Educational Studies Dissertations

Historically, the “development” of college faculty members has involved further learning in their academic disciplines (Gaff & Simpson, 1994; Lewis, 1996); subsequent efforts to enhance faculty learning have been informed by Gaff’s (1975) three-part model of faculty development. However, how faculty members “develop” as teachers is still far from clear. This study uses an adult developmental approach to understand and explore “the who, the self that teaches” (Palmer, 1998, p. 4) at the intersection of faculty personal and professional learning. This critical event narrative study of ten college teachers sought to understand how faculty members from 4-year liberal arts teaching-intensive institutions make ...


Thriving In The 21st Century By Tackling Wicked Problems, Judith A. Ramaley 2013 Portland State University

Thriving In The 21st Century By Tackling Wicked Problems, Judith A. Ramaley

Higher Education

More than 20 years ago, I was a member of a leadership roundtable in Portland, Oregon, that was working on achieving the ambitious goal of 100 percent graduation rate from high school. In the course of our deliberations, we finally asked ourselves why young people were dropping out of school. After listening to a number of experts talk about retention, we thought to ask ourselves, “What would the young people themselves say?” To find out, we invited a group of young high school dropouts and high school student leaders to an afternoon conversation. The experts had talked about various strategies ...

How Disruptive Is Information Technology Really?, Judith A. Ramaley

Higher Education

In an administrative career lasting over thirty years, first as a provost and then through three presidencies and a stint at the National Science Foundation, I have watched while changes in technology have reshaped the nature and character of discovery, the gathering and interpretation of increasingly complex observations whose patterns would be completely opaque if we did not have high-speed computing to sort them out, and the integration and use of knowledge in ways that would have been impossible when I went to college in the early 1960s. I went from having to learn the purpose of each of the ...


Seeking More High-Quality Undergraduate Degrees: Conditions For More Effectively Working With Policy Makers, Judith A. Ramaley 2013 Portland State University

Seeking More High-Quality Undergraduate Degrees: Conditions For More Effectively Working With Policy Makers, Judith A. Ramaley

Higher Education

Our nation’s colleges and universities have always sought to prepare their graduates for life and work in their own era. The pressures we face today, both from outside the academy and within the higher education community, are complex, interlocking, and hard to manage. Some of these challenges require us to rethink what it means to be educated in today’s world and to explore ways to provide a coherent and meaningful educational experience in the face of the turbulence, uncertainty, and fragmentation that characterizes much of higher education today.
