Cross-Institutional Exploratory Of Faculty Compensation Models To Incentivize Distance Learning Participation, Mitchell L. Springer, Mark T. Schuver, Thomas J. Brumm 2017 Purdue University

Cross-Institutional Exploratory Of Faculty Compensation Models To Incentivize Distance Learning Participation, Mitchell L. Springer, Mark T. Schuver, Thomas J. Brumm

Thomas J. Brumm

In higher education, courses and curriculum are purportedly the intellectual property of the academic departments. Academic departments, then, provide instructors or faculty to teach. The assignment of faculty to teach in distance-based programs directly implies there needs to exist some level of financial incentive for the home department of those faculty, as well as direct incentive to the faculty who are involved in teaching. After all expenses are accounted for, then,what model for faculty compensation provides the greatest level of incentive to participate in professional studies? Building on previous scholarship and over a year of additional research,this paper ...


Student Perspectives On A New Online Biomass Production Module For Fundamentals Of Biorenewable Resources And Technology, Darren H. Jarboe, D. Raj Raman, Thomas J. Brumm, Robert A. Martin, Scott McLeod 2017 Iowa State University

Student Perspectives On A New Online Biomass Production Module For Fundamentals Of Biorenewable Resources And Technology, Darren H. Jarboe, D. Raj Raman, Thomas J. Brumm, Robert A. Martin, Scott Mcleod

Thomas J. Brumm

In 2007, a Virtual Education Center for Biorenewable Resources was initiated that offered three online courses, one being Biorenewable Resources and Tech¬nology (BRT) 501 – Fundamentals of BRT. The objective was to assess student perceptions on two delivery methods, course assessments, module material, and student learning. Twenty students completed the survey of qualitative aspects of student experiences in BRT 501. The biomass production module brought non-farm students closer to the knowledge level of farm students as demonstrated by students’ self-assessed knowl¬edge and their BRT 501 assessment scores. Students desired a stronger connection with the course instructor and peers, whether ...

Differential Impacts Of Online Delivery Methods On Student Learning: A Case Study In Biorenewables, Darren H. Jarboe, D. Raj Raman, Thomas J. Brumm, Robert Martin, Scott Mcleod

Thomas J. Brumm

In 2007, a Virtual Education Center for Biorenewable Resources was initiated that offered three distance education courses, one being Biorenewable Resources and Technology (BRT) 501 – Fundamentals of Biorenewable Resources and Technology, the subject of this study. The primary objective was to determine if course delivery method (video lecture format and the other in menu-driven auto-tutorial presentations (MDAP) deliv¬ered via Flash format), student major (agricultural and non-agricultural), and gender influence online student learning in BRT 501. We found that BRT 501 student performance was not significantly impacted by module delivery method. Students with agricultural majors were outperformed by students with ...

The Language Of Learning In Family And Consumer Sciences: English Language Learners In Career Technical Education, Kali S. Lenhoff

Empowering Research for Educators

Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) content and English as a Second Language (ESL) strategies can be organically incorporated to create a successful education for an English Language Learner (ELL). The first objective of this research project is to discover how prepared Family and Consumer Sciences teachers feel to work with English Language Learners in the classroom. The second objective is to identify practical and effective methods and strategies that are useful for Family and Consumer Sciences teachers instructing English Language Learners. The rationale for this project is that by identifying the challenges faced by English Language Learners in education, teachers ...


Immigrant Parental Involvement In Student Academics, charles tebben 2017 South Dakota State University

Immigrant Parental Involvement In Student Academics, Charles Tebben

Empowering Research for Educators

Abstract

This study is meant to focus discussions about the importance of the involvement of immigrant parents in respect to student academics. In this study I intend to make evident a relationship between parental involvement and student academics, after which I will draw in a conclusion of the resources utilized by my community at the elementary and middle schools. I’m conducting my research study starting at elementary school and running through middle school. I’m eliminating the high school period because of their unique parental involvement complexities which share little constraints and outcomes with the lower levels. To build ...

The Road To Hybrid Courses: Challenging Yet Rewarding, Phyllis K. Adcock 2017 University of Nebraska at Omaha

The Road To Hybrid Courses: Challenging Yet Rewarding, Phyllis K. Adcock

Journal of Curriculum, Teaching, Learning and Leadership in Education

Faculty who have good technology skills and are searching for a way to adapt a course into some form of a distance education course have a number of options. Faculty who have the support of a technology specialist who can share many opportunities such as collaboration technologies and digital media, enable more flexibility in how courses are delivered. The ability to reach beyond the four walls of a classroom has helped developed an attitude that faculty are looking for innovative methodology, using technology in the classroom. Online programs, hybrid courses, audio-video conferencing, and virtual office hours have the power to ...

Inclusivity: Universal Design Strategies For The Online Classroom, Sarah Keene, Amy Limbybliw

Innovate! Teaching with Technology Conference

The importance of inclusivity work is backed by the Association of American Colleges & Universities, who in 2005 charged higher education institutions to work toward "inclusive excellence" by promoting a positive campus climate, establishing diversity as a core component in achieving desired student learning outcomes, linking diversity with quality, and rethinking and modifying pedagogy to reflect and support goals for inclusion and excellence (Williams, Berger, & McClendon, 2005). In addition, research conducted at higher education institutions have demonstrated that the extent to which students felt their institution had a nondiscriminatory environment positively impacted students' openness to diversity and taking on challenges (Pascarella ...

Proctoring Exams In The Online Environment, Chlene Anderson, Pamela Gades 2017 University of Minnesota - Morris

Proctoring Exams In The Online Environment, Chlene Anderson, Pamela Gades

Innovate! Teaching with Technology Conference

The University of Minnesota, Morris Online Learning program has a history of using proctors for off-campus online students taking paper and pencil or computer-based exams. These methods require coordination between the student, proctor, instructor, and the online learning coordinator. The program must verify proctors identified by students, safely distribute exams to proctors and instructors, and follow protocols for the occasional late or lost exam. Recently the program piloted a remote proctoring system that allows students the flexibility to test at a time and location convenient for them while maintaining the integrity of online exams by authenticating students and deterring cheating ...

Engaging Student Learning With Interactive Videos, Karen Matthes, Pamela Gades, Scott Krenz, Paige Friedrich

Innovate! Teaching with Technology Conference

The experiences of passively watching a video online and actively engaging in a lecture in person are markedly different. During an on-campus lecture, an instructor has the ability to pose questions to students and give individualized feedback based on responses. In an online environment, however, these questions are at best rhetorical, and students' ability to receive feedback on their responses is limited. As a result, students are unable to check their understanding of a topic while watching a video. Similarly, non-classroom environments may prove to be more distracting for students, and the resulting potential decrease in engagement may be detrimental ...
