Defending Liberal Education: Implications For Educational Policy, Christopher W. Lyons
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
This thesis advocates for the inclusion of liberal education in discussions of the college and university missions and mandates in North America. It is conceived with the purpose of influencing policy thinking and generating the theory and ideas required for sound education policy decision making. Research into liberal education is a special and atypical kind of inquiry and requires innovative theoretical approaches. Liberal education is foremost a philosophical problem and requires philosophical approaches. The method used is, therefore, conceptual in nature and drawn from analytical philosophy.
My research approaches liberal education conceptually in three ways: historically, philosophically, and politically. Historically ...

Rising Tuition In Higher Education: Should We Be Concerned?, 2015 Occidental College
Rising Tuition In Higher Education: Should We Be Concerned?, Stewart Renehan
Visions for the Liberal Arts
The most pressing concern in higher education amongst students, prospects, and parents is high tuition. I sought to assess the magnitude of the problem of high tuition in America and address potential changes that might be made to curb further rises. I found that high tuition is not necessarily a problem as the benefits of a college degree increasingly outweigh the costs. High tuition does not deter people from attending college; it is one of the best investments an individual can make. The only viable change to make is to invest in new online educational technology which has the potential ...
A Student Perspective On The Causes Of The Commercialization Of Higher Education And The Movement Of Professors Away From Undergraduate Teaching Towards Research And The Effect Those Two Movements Have On Undergraduate Learning And Education, 2015 Occidental College
A Student Perspective On The Causes Of The Commercialization Of Higher Education And The Movement Of Professors Away From Undergraduate Teaching Towards Research And The Effect Those Two Movements Have On Undergraduate Learning And Education, Jacob Richman
Visions for the Liberal Arts
There has been a continuous movement of faculty at institutions of higher education away from a focus on teaching undergraduate students towards individual and specialized research and graduate teaching. This paper will attempt to explore some of the apparent driving factors for this movement as well the impact that it has on undergraduate learning. These factors include, but are not limited to, professorial desires to spend more time on research and therefore less time on teaching, particularly undergraduate teaching; the pressure to use research as a way to obtain funding and income separate from the institution whom the professors are ...
Collaboration Opportunities With The Society To Enhance Indonesian Citizenry By Furthering Higher Education With The Liberal Arts (Seiche), 2015 Northern Michigan University
Collaboration Opportunities With The Society To Enhance Indonesian Citizenry By Furthering Higher Education With The Liberal Arts (Seiche), Judith Puncochar, Don Faust
The Society for the Enhancement of Indonesian Citizenry through Higher Education (SEICHE) is an Indonesian organization analogous to The Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE) in the United States. SEICHE and ASHE use similar organizational structures and promote scholarly research and debate about issues and possibilities in the advancement of higher education. SEICHE was launched on November 22, 2014, in Bandung, Indonesia, with representatives from seven universities and one non-profit organization. The SEICHE vision is to help achieve international recognition of Indonesia’s higher education system, accomplished principally through collaboration and engagement with research in curriculum, instruction, service ...

Designing And Implementing A Planetary Geology Course For Engineers At The Jet Propulsion Lab, 2015 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo
Designing And Implementing A Planetary Geology Course For Engineers At The Jet Propulsion Lab, Jessica Joyce Dimizio
STAR (STEM Teacher and Researcher) Program Posters
This project took place at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and involved creating an instructional tool that would increase the quality of communication between mechanical engineers and geologists who are collaboratively designing ways to collect and cache martian rock samples for the Mars 2020 rover mission. Geology and engineering do not cross paths in traditional education settings and communication is difficult due to the specialized language and processes of geology. Previous attempts to bridge communications between these two groups did not serve a large enough audience nor were they specific to the complexities of the Mars 2020 mission. Interviews ...

Learning Communities Research and Practice
First year learning community (LC) freshmen entering as education majors participated in year-long activities related to service learning and leadership development. Activities included fall cohort classes with shared content, a common read, and a spring seminar that included leadership learning, fund raising, and a short-term service project in an alternative school setting. Students were compared with other LC freshman not engaged in the project, non-education LC students, and those not in learning communities across measures of attitudes toward volunteerism and diverse groups, grades, and rates of volunteering. Additional qualitative data were collected in regard to self-reflection of those involved in ...
Missing In Action?, 2015 University of Wollongong

The changing character of intellectual production: how university radicals have become vassals of global billion-dollar scholarly publishing empires; the necessity for radical scholars to break from this model; and the possibility of connecting with activism outside the university as one way of doing this.
Return To Holy Hill: Louisiana College, Academic Freedom, And The Southern Baptist Convention's Conservative Resurgence, 1995-2006, 2015 University of Southern Mississippi
Return To Holy Hill: Louisiana College, Academic Freedom, And The Southern Baptist Convention's Conservative Resurgence, 1995-2006, Joseph Learned Odenwald
This study examines a period in the history of Louisiana College in which the college’s sponsoring organization, the Louisiana Baptist Convention, a Southern Baptist affiliate, began to insist that professors at the college teach only in accordance with the official views of the Southern Baptist Convention. The literature is replete with studies on the movement affecting the Southern Baptist seminaries, but little has been written about the impact of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Conservative Resurgence on the colleges.
As such, this study explores the changes that were made to the academic freedom and governance policies as the trustees ...

Creating A Positive Emotional Climate In An Elementary School Classroom, Nicole Good
Master's Theses and Capstone Projects
All teachers create an environment in their classrooms that sets an emotional tone for students. Teachers may find it hard to choose the right classroom management strategies to create a positive classroom climate for their students. As a result, teachers have expressed an interest in this topic for over 40 years. The purpose of this research is to identify aspects of successful classroom management systems in order to assist teachers in creating a successful learning environment and a positive emotional climate for learning. The research literature revealed that classroom management is instrumental in establishing a climate for learning that is ...
The Relationship Between Demands And Resources And Teacher Burnout: A Fifteen-Year Meta-Analysis, 2015 University of Tennessee - Knoxville
The Relationship Between Demands And Resources And Teacher Burnout: A Fifteen-Year Meta-Analysis, Tammy Marie Stewart
This meta-analysis explored the phenomenon of teacher burnout— the biggest contributor to teacher attrition (Owens, 2013; Unterbrink, 2014; Yu, 2015). The focus of this study was to use meta-analytical procedures to explore the relationship between burnout dimensions (i.e., emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and feelings of personal accomplishment) and specific demand and resource correlates. Demand correlates included work overload, role conflict, role ambiguity, and student misbehavior. Resource correlates included peer support, supervisory support, and decision-making. This meta-analytical research method encompassed fifteen years of published and unpublished studies from January 2000 through January 2015. A total of 116 studies met the following ...
Compass Rose, 2015 University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Compass Rose, Rosemary Herman Powers
UNLV Theses/Dissertations/Professional Papers/Capstones
This thesis explores the orientational power of language through a collection of poetry grounded in themes of place, landscape, and desire. Language organizes the raw material of existence into the humanizing possibilities of experience and connection. It interrogates, examines, exalts, orders and reorders continually. Much like a physical landscape, it is constantly shifting under various pressures, which operate at variable speeds. By working and reworking themes and images, these poems explore the twin processes of erosion and deposition.
The materials found in these poems are largely drawn from my own memory, perception, loss, and desire. I mean to use language ...

We Get To Carry Each Other: Using The Musical Activism Of U2 As Framework For An Engaged Spirituality And Community Engagement Course, 2015 Saint Mary's College of California
We Get To Carry Each Other: Using The Musical Activism Of U2 As Framework For An Engaged Spirituality And Community Engagement Course, Marshall Welch
Engaging Pedagogies in Catholic Higher Education
This article describes a January term community engagement service-learning course that used the musical and spiritually-based activism of the rock group U2 as an example of engaged spirituality using activism and advocacy. In addition to learning about the history, music, and activism of the band, students were taught a specific set of skills for activism, advocacy, and community organizing that included creating goal statements, developing and implementing action plans, and coordinating logistics for advocacy-based events on campus. Students were assigned to apply these skills as the service-learning component of the course. These activities were conceptualized as indirect service that reflected ...
