Teaching Students How To Make Their Dreams Come True: An Autoethnography Of Developing And Teaching The Dream Reseach Methods Course, E. James Baesler 2017 Old Dominion University

Teaching Students How To Make Their Dreams Come True: An Autoethnography Of Developing And Teaching The Dream Reseach Methods Course, E. James Baesler

The Qualitative Report

How to make students’ dreams come true is the central focus of this autoethnography that chronicles the story of the transformation of a traditional undergraduate communication research methods course into a new and creative dream research methods course. Pedagogical and institutional issues in teaching the traditional methods course join personal influences in my life story to birth the new dream research methods course. The content and format of the new course are described chronologically using personal stories, student perspectives, advice to teachers, and reflection questions. I encourage teachers, by experimenting with the ideas in the dream research methods course, to ...

Graduate Student Perspectives Of Interdisciplinary And Disciplinary Programming For Teaching Development, Katherine E. Bishop-Williams, Kaitlin Roke, Erin Aspenlieder, Meagan Troop 2017 University of Guelph

Graduate Student Perspectives Of Interdisciplinary And Disciplinary Programming For Teaching Development, Katherine E. Bishop-Williams, Kaitlin Roke, Erin Aspenlieder, Meagan Troop

The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Interdisciplinary (i.e., university-wide programming) and disciplinary (i.e., programming open to participants from one college or department) teaching development programs for graduate students have been used for many years in higher education. Currently, research on the benefits of these teaching models remains scant in terms of a contextualized understanding, and empirical studies are needed. The purpose of this study was to determine graduate students’ perspectives related to interdisciplinary and disciplinary teaching and learning experiences. Two online surveys were used: a quantitative survey and a qualitative follow-up survey. Three participatory focus groups were also conducted to allow for further in-depth ...


Exploring The Role Of The Scholarship Of Teaching And Learning In The Context Of The Professional Identities Of Faculty, Graduate Students, And Staff In Higher Education, Clarke Mathany, Katie M. Clow, Erin D. Aspenlieder 2017 University of Guelph

Exploring The Role Of The Scholarship Of Teaching And Learning In The Context Of The Professional Identities Of Faculty, Graduate Students, And Staff In Higher Education, Clarke Mathany, Katie M. Clow, Erin D. Aspenlieder

The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Developing an identity as a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) researcher is associated with tensions of expanding on one’s disciplinary identity and often traversing the liminal space between disciplines that result in a newfound perception of professional self. This study explores the differences that emerged in SoTL identity formation among three different groups of researchers. Focus groups of faculty, graduate students, and professional staff who identified as SoTL researchers were conducted at one comprehensive research institution. Using thematic analysis, the differences and similarities for each of these groups in terms of barriers to SoTL identity formation and motivations ...


Pre-Service Teachers With Disabilities: Challenges And Opportunities For Directors Of Student Teaching In Western Canada, Laura Sokal, Debra Woloshyn, Alina Wilson 2017 University of Winnipeg

Pre-Service Teachers With Disabilities: Challenges And Opportunities For Directors Of Student Teaching In Western Canada, Laura Sokal, Debra Woloshyn, Alina Wilson

The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

In response to the lack of Canadian research about the practicum experiences of pre-service teachers with disabilities, a survey of ten Directors of Student Teaching in Western Canadian universities was conducted and revealed both strengths and challenges in current practices. Recommendations for teacher education are explored, and several future research directions are highlighted.

En réponse à l’absence de recherche sur les expériences de stage des enseignants en formation souffrant d’invalidité, un sondage a été effectué auprès de dix directeurs de stagiaires dans des universités de l’Ouest du Canada. Le sondage a révélé à la fois les points ...


Listening To Their Lives: Learning Through Narrative In An Undergraduate Practicum Course, Kristen Cairney, Andrea V. Breen 2017 Wyndham House

Listening To Their Lives: Learning Through Narrative In An Undergraduate Practicum Course, Kristen Cairney, Andrea V. Breen

The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Experiential community-based learning is used for academic purposes, as well as to promote students’ civic education, moral development, and the development of identity. Recent advancements in narrative identity theory may have important implications for enriching our understanding of how learning occurs in the context of community-based learning. In this study we examine students’ learning in a third year undergraduate practicum course in the human services through the lens of narrative identity theory. Nine students (ages 20-26) who had recently completed the practicum course completed a semi-structured interview focusing on the story of their practicum experience and their changing conceptions of ...


A Critical Approach To Teaching About, Through, And For Human Rights, Jerome Cranston, Melanie D. Janzen 2017 University of Manitoba

A Critical Approach To Teaching About, Through, And For Human Rights, Jerome Cranston, Melanie D. Janzen

The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

This paper presents the findings from a collaborative inquiry research study that explored instructors’ perspectives and students’ perceptions of an innovative ten-day graduate level human rights education course for educators. The course was the result of a partnership between the Faculty of Education at the University of Manitoba and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. The purpose of the course was to encourage students to critically examine human rights; specifically, whose human rights stories get told, how they get told, and by whom. The findings suggest that while there were worthwhile insights gained when considering on teaching about, through, and ...


The Influence Of Previous Subject Experience On Interactions During Peer Instruction In An Introductory Physics Course: A Mixed Methods Analysis, Judy A. Vondruska 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The Influence Of Previous Subject Experience On Interactions During Peer Instruction In An Introductory Physics Course: A Mixed Methods Analysis, Judy A. Vondruska

Public Access Theses and Dissertations from the College of Education and Human Sciences

Over the past decade, peer instruction and the introduction of student response systems has provided a means of improving student engagement and achievement in large-lecture settings. While the nature of the student discourse occurring during peer instruction is less understood, existing studies have shown student ideas about the subject, extraneous cues, and confidence level appear to matter in the student-student discourse. Using a mixed methods research design, this study examined the influence of previous subject experience on peer instruction in an introductory, one-semester Survey of Physics course. Quantitative results indicated students in discussion pairs where both had previous subject experience ...


The Efficacy Of A Goal-Based Study Skills Course For Academically At-Risk, First-Generation, African American, Female Students, Sarah Beth Garrison 2017 The University of Southern Mississippi

The Efficacy Of A Goal-Based Study Skills Course For Academically At-Risk, First-Generation, African American, Female Students, Sarah Beth Garrison

Dissertations

The purpose of this research was to identify effective intervention strategies used in a goal-based study skills course for academically at-risk, first-generation, African-American, female students. Based on the theoretical framework from goal, motivation and achievement theories (Covington, 2000; Kuh, 2007; Nicholls, 1984), this study provided an analysis of research regarding the academic success and persistence of at-risk students. An explanatory mixed-method design was employed that consisted of two phases. The first phase of the study used quantitative data to test for difference in GPA and academic status between the control and treatment group. Quantitative data was also used to identify ...


Heroism Science Offers A New Framework For Cultivating Civic Virtue Within Clinical Law Programs, Francina Cantatore, Nickolas J. James 2017 Bond University

Heroism Science Offers A New Framework For Cultivating Civic Virtue Within Clinical Law Programs, Francina Cantatore, Nickolas J. James

Australian Journal of Clinical Education

Law schools have an obligation to produce law graduates who are not only knowledgeable and competent but also committed to working towards the public good. Clinical law programs, and in particular pro bono law clinics, have the potential to provoke a positive personal transformation on the part of the law student, leading to the development of civic virtue, but law schools lack a useful framework for conceptualising, facilitating and evaluating this personal transformation. The emergent field of heroism science provides such a framework. In particular the notion of the ‘hero’s journey’ can be drawn upon to address some of ...


The Myth Of Entitlement: Students’ Perceptions Of The Relationship Between Grading Practices And Learning At An Elite University, Clara S. Lewis, Breanna Della Williams, Minkee Kim Sohn, Tamara Chin Loy 2017 Stanford University

The Myth Of Entitlement: Students’ Perceptions Of The Relationship Between Grading Practices And Learning At An Elite University, Clara S. Lewis, Breanna Della Williams, Minkee Kim Sohn, Tamara Chin Loy

The Qualitative Report

While the existence of grade inflation in the American system of higher education is well documented, the argument that student entitlement drives this dynamic remains unproven. Drawing on an abductive analysis of twenty-nine in-depth, semi-structured interviews conducted by undergraduate co-authors, this study addresses these questions: (1) How do undergraduates on one elite campus understand the meaning and function of the grades they have received in college and (2) Do these students think that grading practices impact their undergraduate learning experience, and if so, how? Our results show that entitlement is not a fixed generational attitude so much as a conditional ...

Effects Of Human Cadaveric Dissections In High School Biology, Brandi Pratt, James Martinez 2819511, Regina Suriel, Ellice P. Martin

Journal of Multicultural Affairs

This study was conducted in a suburban public high school, which had a connection to the local university, to measure the achievement of dual enrollment senior students using traditional hands-on (THO) cadaveric dissections compared to non-traditional (NT) virtual dissections of the human body. The outcomes of this study may assist multicultural science educators and administrators, students and parents, to understand the importance of THO cadaveric dissections compared to NT virtual dissections tools in learning gross anatomy. Also, noted is the importance of public and higher education collaboration to help bridge the science resource gaps between educational settings.

Continuing Derrick Bell's Devotion In Creative Action, Angela Mae Kupenda 2017 Mississippi College School of Law

Continuing Derrick Bell's Devotion In Creative Action, Angela Mae Kupenda

Journal Articles

I remember my first time seeing Derrick Bell in person and hearing him speak, just a few years before he passed away. I was in awe of him for many reasons, but primarily for two reasons. First, I noted from watching him with his devoted students, how mutual was the devotion coming from him—devotion to them as people and as those who would surely carry on his great work of seeking to forge equality in America and beyond. And second, I was in awe of him because of his devotion to the elimination of racism, while at the same ...
