The Relationship Between Career And Technical Education Enrollment And College And Career Readiness Outcomes, Daniel Soliz Jr. 2021 Abilene Christian University

The Relationship Between Career And Technical Education Enrollment And College And Career Readiness Outcomes, Daniel Soliz Jr.

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

College and career readiness for K-12 students has become a priority of legislatures and educational leaders in the United States. In recent years, Texas public school leaders have emphasized the importance of maximizing the percentage of College, Career and Military Ready (CCMR) graduates. The specific problem studied was that a low percentage of students in Texas, in comparison to the state’s graduation rate, graduate with a CCMR distinction. Career and Technical Education (CTE), a component of K-12 education, can assist school leaders in maximizing college and career readiness for students. However, it was not clear how within schools, CTE ...

Hosting Art Exhibits To Enhance Student Engagement: A Case Study At A Commuter College, Rebecca Rose, Teresa Nesbitt, Allison Galloup

Library Faculty Publications

A commuter campus library hosted an art exhibit in November 2019 to increase engagement levels of local high school and university students and to involve them in scholarly activities. The exhibit displayed student, faculty, and staff submissions on campus. The library space on campus features comfortable seating and desktop computers, with a collection robust with virtual holdings, but scant print volumes. Without physical print books, the library lacks the overt visual cues that can prompt students to seek out traditional library services. To increase student interactions, the librarians use outreach efforts to promote library services. Data collected via surveys from ...

Junior Faculty Advising For Effective Student Growth And Academic Success: A Qualitative Study, Noreen Powers, Russell Wartalski

Teacher-Scholar: The Journal of the State Comprehensive University

Supporting the academic advising needs of adult learners is paramount for colleges and universities. Research suggests that the faculty advisor's role is pivotal in students' academic progress. At both the undergraduate and graduate levels, faculty advisors are tasked with supporting adult learners in achieving their professional goals and providing resources to ensure their academic success. Specifically, they help students navigate curriculum requirements and provide support both inside and outside the classroom. The tasks and responsibilities associated with faculty advising can vary based on the institution type and program needs. However, junior faculty who take on advising responsibilities at regional ...

This guide is intended as a resource for introductory technical writing course instructors to adapt an existing course to integrate OER resources, or, to build a new course with all-OER student resources. This guide was developed for the specific use of WR 227 instructors at Portland State University and across Oregon; however, the material in the guide or ...

Modeling Flexibility For Middle Level Teacher Candidates During The Covid-19 Pandemic, Leah L. Kahn, Michelle Williams

Current Issues in Middle Level Education

This article describes the steps one university middle level program implemented to create an engaging, meaningful field experience while modeling flexibility for the teacher candidates.


S-Step 2.0 Finding Our Way: Teaching In Alternate Modes Of Delivery, Edward (Ted) R. Howe PhD, Georgann E. Cope Watson Dr. 2021 Thompson Rivers University

S-Step 2.0 Finding Our Way: Teaching In Alternate Modes Of Delivery, Edward (Ted) R. Howe Phd, Georgann E. Cope Watson Dr.

Teaching Practices Colloquium

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to critically re-evaluate teaching strategies. This self-study of teacher education practices (S-STEP) builds on previous research to compare effective traditional lessons with alternate modes of delivery. In this interactive session, we share several lessons. Participants will be actively engaged. In S-STEP 2.0, we compare and contrast lessons such as ice-breakers, jigsaws, discussions and group activities, utilizing Moodle, Big Blue Button, Padlet, Slido, Google Docs, and other online tools. We critically analyze the teaching of graduate students through S-STEP with the help of a critical friend. In addition, we explore Comparative Ethnographic Narrative (CEN ...


How Will I Thrive? Developing Designer Professional Identity Among Undergraduate Communication Design Students, Denise Bosler 2021 Kutztown University of Pennsylvania

How Will I Thrive? Developing Designer Professional Identity Among Undergraduate Communication Design Students, Denise Bosler

Education Doctorate Dissertations

A designer’s professional identity is constructed throughout a designer’s life and is developed through life experiences and education. While understanding the general importance of a professional identity is often clear to recent design graduates, developing it requires becoming self-aware of what traits constitutes designer professional identity (DPI). Kunrath, Cash and Yi-ling (2016) define DPI as the synthesis of personal attributes and design skills. However, the development of this full complement of DPI traits is often ignored and ill-supported in design education curriculum. A student’s DPI, if under-developed, can be a barrier to successfully transitioning from student to ...

The Mutual Assessment System In Teamwork: The Value Of The Individual Grade, Sandra Vázquez Toledo, Cecilia Latorre Cosculluela, Marta Liesa Orús, Pilar Rivera-Torres

Practical Assessment, Research, and Evaluation

Teaching-learning based on cooperative learning is grounded on a methodology that is currently one of the most widely used within formal education classrooms. Recently, special attention has begun to be paid to a fundamentally relevant aspect of the assessment of the learning of university students within their group performance: their individual grades obtained from teamwork. In addition to describing the individual grading system that is used to assess individual contributions, this study analyses the perceptions of 99 university students regarding the benefits that the system has for students’ learning process. A system of evaluation based on self-assessment, co-assessment and peer-assessment ...
