Turning Points: Women At Gettysburg College From 1965-1975, 2016 Gettysburg College
Turning Points: Women At Gettysburg College From 1965-1975, Christina M. Noto
This poster is a summary of Christina Noto’s summer research. The research focuses on the experiences of Women at Gettysburg College from the Fall of 1964 to the Spring of 1975. While women attended Gettysburg College, they faced discrimination in all aspects of college life-- in the classroom, athletics, activities, their social lives and housing. This poster focuses on the housing discrimination women faced. Women had much stricter housing regulations. For example, women had to sign in and out of their dorms. Women also had mandatory dorm hours (certain times they had to be in their rooms). While some ...

Mindfulness In Learning, 2016 The Graduate Center, City University of New York
Mindfulness In Learning, Anna Malyukova
All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
In our everyday life, people feel busy, rushed, pressured to be productive and successful. There is little room for pausing, slowing down, having a moment of non-judgmental reflection on everyday activities, which include learning. One way to achieve balance and harmony in life is to become more mindful of oneself and one’s emotions. I argue that the speed and drive for productivity and achievement has disharmonized our lives, from the learning process inside and outside of the classroom to the way we interact with technology and attempt to find balance in life. Through my own personal journey of reflection ...
A Posse Comes East: Houstonians Share Tight Bond And A New World, 2016 Colby College
A Posse Comes East: Houstonians Share Tight Bond And A New World, Christina Dong
Parker is one of nine students in Colby Posse 13, the first group of students from Houston to attend Colby through the Posse Foundation after a 12-year affiliation with Posse New York. Posse recruits high-achieving public high school students and offers an opportunity to attend a partner college or university with support of a full-tuition scholarship and fellow Posse scholars.

Turning Assumptions Upside Down, Gerry Boyle
Lisa Arellano reveals the dissonance of the paradox behind the contradiction. Arellano wants students to see that there are not only different viewpoints but also to be aware of the traceable and revealing ways those viewpoints—including their own—are formed.

The Library And Undergraduate Research In The Liberal Arts: Present Contributions And Future Opportunities, Todd J. Wiebe
This study sought to describe library value as seen through its various contributions to the mentored undergraduate research experiences of students in the arts, humanities, and social sciences at Hope College. Concurrently, it explored new opportunities for how librarians might become more directly connected with students involved in this hallmark of the academic program. Findings were intended to both highlight existing library contributions and initiate a well-informed movement toward aligning library priorities with the greater institutional academic mission.

Impact Analysis Of The Leahy-Smith America Invents Act, 2016 Grand Valley State University
Impact Analysis Of The Leahy-Smith America Invents Act, Richard A. Campbell
The United States patent system is crucial in protecting our intellectual property and strengthening our position in the world economy. The U.S. Constitution specifically empowers Congress to issue patents in order to “promote the progress of science and useful arts.” This research paper explores how The Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA) has impacted independent inventors and small businesses in the United States. In this study, I used secondary analysis of existing research and statistical data from the United States Patent Trademark Office (USPTO) to examine this issue as it pertains to economic competitiveness (creativity and innovation), job creation / reduction ...
Session N : Why Is A Steam Curriculum Perspective Crucial To The 21st Century?, 2016 Murdoch University
Session N : Why Is A Steam Curriculum Perspective Crucial To The 21st Century?, Peter Charles Taylor
2009 - 2017 ACER Research Conferences
Well-recognised as a powerful driver of national economic growth, STEM lies at the heart of calls worldwide for educational reform. In Australia, Chief Scientists are calling for STEM education to better engage students on STEM-related career pathways. In the USA, STEM educators are being urged to produce graduates with creative and innovative abilities required of an increasingly high-tech workforce. However, an equally important challenge for STEM education is to prepare young people with general capabilities for active participation in community and professional forums for addressing ethical issues associated with the global impact of science and technology. Education for sustainable development ...

Becoming A Scientist: Using First-Year Undergraduate Science Courses To Promote Identification With Science Disciplines, Chloe Ruff, Brett D. Jones
Education Faculty Publications
In this qualitative study, we examined how two professors (a physicist and biochemist) of first year college students perceived their students’ development of identification in biochemistry or physics and how they actively supported this development. The professors described students who entered college with different levels of domain identification and different expectations for their college science experience depending upon whether they were in a biochemistry or physics major. Although neither professor was familiar with research related to the concept of domain identification, their beliefs about their students’ identification and academic support strategies generally aligned with the Osborne and Jones (2011) model ...

The course utilizes the Ursinus inquiry based approach to learning, focusing on the core questions “How can we understand the world?” and “How should we live together?” Supplementary materials, such as the course proposal, are meant to encourage the Ursinus College History Department to offer the course in the future.
Educating The Under Empowered For Tolerance Of Satire And Participation In Young Democracies, 2016 Northern Michigan University
Educating The Under Empowered For Tolerance Of Satire And Participation In Young Democracies, Judith Puncochar, Don Faust
Drawing from experiences in Indonesia, Malaysia, and the United States, a relationship appears to exist between tolerance for satire, freedom of expression, and academic freedom in higher education. Empowering the under empowered for participation in vibrant democracies and rational public discourse seems to coincide with an increasing tolerance for satire. We posit vibrant democracies must contain educational elements essential to empower the under empowered for democratic participation, in particular, to provide new democratic citizens with an understanding of the role of satire to cultivate rational public discourse in new democracies. New Southeast Asian democracies need growing evidence of dynamic strivings ...
Does Gender Still Matter? Child Custody Bias In The Illinois Family Court System, 2016 Illinois State University
Does Gender Still Matter? Child Custody Bias In The Illinois Family Court System, Derek K. Ronnfeldt
Theses and Dissertations
Over the last several decades, nearly all of the states have formed task forces to look at the perception of a gender bias within the family court systems as they pertain to child custody. This self-scrutiny has included the attitudes of judges and attorneys within the system and the need of reform of our family courts. This research focused on replicating a study conducted by Dotterweich and McKinney that was completed in 2000 that compiled statistics from four different state task forces in Maryland, Missouri, Texas, and Washington. This research focused on Illinois judges and attorneys, using the same questions ...
Review Of Sustainable Energy -- Without The Hot Air By David Mackay (2009), 2016 Pennsylvania State University, Mont Alto
Review Of Sustainable Energy -- Without The Hot Air By David Mackay (2009), Kira Hamman
David MacKay. Sustainable Energy: Without the hot air. (Cambridge, England: UIT Cambridge Ltd., 2009). 384 pp. ISBN 978-0954452933 (also available as a free e-book).
Physicist David MacKay transforms what has historically been a debate fraught with skepticism and hysteria into an informed conversation. He does this by providing clear, accurate quantitative information on energy production and consumption in a form that allows comparison and invites thoughtful analysis. By recalibrating power into kilowatt-hours per day per person, he makes the numbers meaningful on an individual level. He then meticulously estimates the productive capacity of various renewable energy sources, explores alternative energy ...
