As a result of such a shift in focus, efforts should be made that future healthcare professionals be prepared for such an environment through MI. This research project aims to determine the acceptance of MI applications by medical students. The study will compare the acceptability of MI ...

A Comparative Study Of Dual Enrollment Student Achievement In Various Learning Environments And Non-Dual Enrollment Student Achievement, Bethany K. Arnold

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Additionally, the researcher explored whether differences exist in DE course grade for students by course environment (online, face-to-face at a high school, or face-to-face at a college.) The researcher used final course grades as determinants of student achievement. The study focused on DE student and AIMS scholar grades in English 111, Biology 101, Math ...

The Process Of Musical Acquisition For Traditional String Musicians In The Homeschool Environment, Keith R. Williams

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This qualitative study examined how three accomplished traditional string musicians learned music in their homeschool environments. Data were derived from formal interviews of the three musicians. The research framework for this qualitative study is based upon the socio-educational model of second language learning motivation developed by R. C. Gardner (1959, 1985, 2004, 2010) and applied to the study of instrumental music learning motivation by P. D. MacIntyre (2012). Structured interview questions, triangulated by additional informal dialogues, field observations, externally documented sources, and collaboration with an expert review panel were the data collection activities utilized in the research.

The Effects Of Yoga Practice And Classroom Management In An Elementary School Setting, Gail L. Willits 2015 Dominican University of California

The Effects Of Yoga Practice And Classroom Management In An Elementary School Setting, Gail L. Willits

Scholarly and Creative Works Conference

Overall performance and well-being among student populations can be attributed to a decrease in stress and anxiety levels. Recent studies show a strong correlation between stress reduction using yoga movement, breathing and meditation. A calmer, focused and attentive classroom promotes an environment where both teacher and student experience less disruption. Limited research also supports a positive effect of yoga practice among students exhibiting symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Inattentiveness, impulsive and adverse behaviors can be successfully treated with yoga. Short interventions can offer students the coping skills needed to promote better self-esteem and confidence in learning and achievement ...

A Position Paper On Preschool Experience Vs. No Preschool Experience: Long Term Effects On Academic And Social Readiness Of Children, Dionne C. Estes

Scholarly and Creative Works Conference

Despite federal and state investments in early education intervention programs, achievement gaps continue to afflict the education system with children from low-income families having a greater need of a high quality preschool education. When children from poor families move through the education system starting off behind, the chances of academic success becomes increasingly difficult, as the education gap increases year after year and they fall farther behind. By the time these students enter high school, they are so far behind they are unable to catch up and meet the grade level requirements, causing many of them to give up and ...

Post Hoc Analysis: Increasing Pre Kindergarten Students Letter Recognition Through Use Of Tablet Applications In A Private School Setting, Corrie C. Giugni Ms.

Scholarly and Creative Works Conference

Preschool students are preparing for kindergarten. This involves getting them ready socially, emotionally and academically. The kindergarten curriculum is demanding and the expectation is that students enter school knowing many aspects related to language arts. The problem at the preschool level is that children need to master letter recognition and letter sounds. The literature reveals that using technology before they are school age can be very beneficial to the preschool students (Kol, 2012). According to Nemeth and Simon (2013) it is important for teachers to have many instructional tools to meet the needs of their students. Using electronic tablets is ...

Sms Education In Accredited Undergraduate Collegiate Aviation Programs, Jonathan Velazquez, Nicole Bier 2015 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Worldwide

Sms Education In Accredited Undergraduate Collegiate Aviation Programs, Jonathan Velazquez, Nicole Bier

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Safety is a critical part of aviation. Current practices demonstrate that agencies such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are encouraging Safety Management Systems (SMS) for many aviation components, to include airports, air carriers, and air traffic control (Kirsch, 2011). The FAA claims that SMS would also be valuable to collegiate aviation (Adjekum, 2014). With safety management growing in aviation, the purpose of this research was to determine whether or not SMS is being taught in programs accredited by the Aviation Accreditation Board International (AABI) at the undergraduate collegiate aviation level. The total ...

Characteristics Of An Appropriate Instructor-Student Relationship In Allied Health, Julie K. Morbach 2015 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Characteristics Of An Appropriate Instructor-Student Relationship In Allied Health, Julie K. Morbach

Educational Administration: Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research

In most allied health educational programs, the instructors are individuals who are experts in their field, but do not have a certificate in teaching. Furthermore, these individuals may feel a sense of loneliness when transitioning from working in a department with co-workers to being the sole instructor of a discipline-specific program. Because of this sense of isolation and the amount of time spent with the same students, instructors may begin to perceive students more as friends and confidants. The purpose of this phenomenological study was to explore the perceptions of educators regarding the instructor-student relationship in allied health programs in ...

Documento Conceptual Sobre Redes De Excelencia Para La Investigación Y La Educación, Suresh V. Garimella, David B. Janes, Anne Slaughter Andrew

GPRI Digital Library

“Redes de Excelencia” focalizadas permitirán que las instituciones en América Latina desarrollen ecosistemas de investigación y educación de un modo mucho más rápido que si siguieran procesos "orgánicos" o locales. Una vez implementados, estos ecosistemas no solo permitirán profundas transformaciones que lleven a economías basadas en el conocimiento, sino que también desempeñarán roles claves en las redes necesarias para los sistemas de innovación regionales.

Para acelerar el desarrollo de ecosistemas de investigación y educación en toda América, los autores proponen establecer “Redes de Excelencia” en las áreas claves. Cada Red de Excelencia será multiinstitucional, multisectorial (universidad, empresa, gobierno, ONG) y ...

A Concept Paper On Networks Of Excellence For Research And Education, Suresh V. Garimella, David B. Janes, Anne Slaughter Andrew 2015 Purdue University

A Concept Paper On Networks Of Excellence For Research And Education, Suresh V. Garimella, David B. Janes, Anne Slaughter Andrew

GPRI Digital Library

Research and education ecosystems, foundational components of knowledge-based economies, are relatively underdeveloped in Latin America. The entire ecosystem of a research university — including resources, corporate partnerships, and research — must capitalize on a symbiosis between the research, education and commercialization missions. A university cannot transform unilaterally nor can universities sustain the required transformation without government and industry participation. Initiatives to accelerate the development of research university ecosystems are critical for the realization of knowledge-based economies and resilient civil societies.

To accelerate the development of research and education ecosystems across the Americas, the authors propose to establish “Networks of Excellence” in key ...
