One L Revisited: Tales From The Back Bench, Robert R.M. Verchick 2010 Loyola University New Orleans

One L Revisited: Tales From The Back Bench, Robert R.M. Verchick

Robert R.M. Verchick

My move to Harvard Law was an exciting, but sometimes frustrating transition. The law school community was large and anonymous, the famous Bauhaus dormitories (designed by Walter Gropius) part Habitrail and part shoebox factory, the eyes of campus administrators a baleful gray. I had come with a bachelor's degree in English (English!) from a west coast univer-sity that called itself “the Farm,” a campus known for fragrant eucalyptus and a pride of lion-colored hills. Harvard Law was certainly no “Farm,” and to my eye it was no “Hundred-Acre Wood” either. Whimsy? Forget it. . . .

Exploring Effective Support Practices For Doctoral Students' Degree Completion, Edlyn V. Peña, Ilda Jimenez y West, Gokce Gokalp, Linda Fischer, Jarrett Gupton 2010 California Lutheran University

Exploring Effective Support Practices For Doctoral Students' Degree Completion, Edlyn V. Peña, Ilda Jimenez Y West, Gokce Gokalp, Linda Fischer, Jarrett Gupton

Edlyn V. Peña

The increase in time-to degree and attrition rates of students in doctoral programs highlight the importance of identifying challenges students face and developing support services to address them. This study explored the barriers and challenges Ed.D. students face while pursuing their degree along with the effectiveness of a doctoral support center (DSC) in assisting doctoral candidates. A survey administered to 103 students inquired into participants' experiences with their program, dissertation chair, and the DSC. In addition, nine student volunteers participated in focus groups and responded to questions related to the DSC, the program, and the advisor. Time management and ...


Spring 2010: Research Opportunity For Undergraduates, Mark Rast 2010 University of Colorado, Boulder

Spring 2010: Research Opportunity For Undergraduates, Mark Rast

Astrophysical & Planetary Sciences Faculty Contributions

The goal of this effort was to engage a broader range of undergraduates (beyond those with the highest grades) in research, and to document what strategies work and where the difficulties lie in providing that broader population a meaningful undergraduate research experience. This then may lead to a more formalized undergrad research program in the department (if we decide we want to go that way), or more informally to some shared insights.

Here I document as completely as possible what I have learned. Many of these things are well known to those with more experience, but I made no attempt ...

Knowledge And Understanding Of The 21st Century Skills Through Educator Externships: Programs In Southern New England, Lizann R. Gibson, Gary G. Gray 2010 Johnson & Wales University - Providence

Knowledge And Understanding Of The 21st Century Skills Through Educator Externships: Programs In Southern New England, Lizann R. Gibson, Gary G. Gray

K-12 Education

This study utilized the body of knowledge that exists on emergent workforce development issues, the characteristics of the Millennial generation as they relate to the increasingly high drop-outs rates and the globalization of the workplace, the need for 21st Century Skills to be incorporated into the K-12 curriculum, and an authentic professional development experience for teachers, the educator externship.

The Educator Externship experience is a statistically viable method of authentic professional development to help teachers provide the educational experience that their students, the Millennial generation, are demanding.

The data from this study statistically showed that the Educator Externship Experience as ...


Disrupted But Not Destroyed: Fictive-Kinship Networks Among Black Educators In Post-Katrina New Orleans, Daniella Ann Cook 2010 University of South Carolina

Disrupted But Not Destroyed: Fictive-Kinship Networks Among Black Educators In Post-Katrina New Orleans, Daniella Ann Cook

Faculty Publications

Drawing on Adkins’ (1997) notion of reform as colonization and using ethnographic data from African American teachers in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, this article discusses how black educators’ fictive-kinship (Fordham 1996, Chatters, Taylor, and Jayadoky 1994, Stack 1976) networks have been altered in the changing landscape of reform. I argue that the importance of fictive-kinship relationships among educators and students was ignored in school-reform efforts in post-Katrina New Orleans. Post-Katrina school reforms disrupted, but did not destroy, these fictive-kinship networks. I discuss three themes: (1) fictive-kinship networks created before Katrina cultivated an environment centered on cooperation, collaboration, and solidarity ...


Imagination And Representation In Graphic Novels, Louann Reid 2010 Colorado State University

Imagination And Representation In Graphic Novels, Louann Reid

The Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning

Graphic narratives are garnering both scholarly and pedagogical attention. These visual texts move readers imaginatively into what Maxine Greene calls “illusioned worlds,” and simultaneously make them conscious of the constructed nature of those worlds through the visual and verbal conventions of comics.

Cheating In The Digital Age: Do Students Cheat More In Online Courses?, George R. Watson, James Sottile 2010 Marshall University

Cheating In The Digital Age: Do Students Cheat More In Online Courses?, George R. Watson, James Sottile

Educational Foundations and Technology

With the assistance of the Internet and related technologies, students today have many more ways to be academically dishonest than students a generation ago. With more and more Internet based course offerings, the concern is whether cheating will increase as students work and take tests away from the eyes of instructors. While the research on academic dishonesty in general is quite extensive, there is very limited research on student cheating in online courses. This study of 635 undergraduate and graduate students at a medium sized university focused on student cheating behaviors in both types of classes (on-line and face to ...

Who Helps The Helper? Lessons On Grieving, Suanne Maurer-Starks, Kimberly A. Wise, James E. Leone, Jayne Kitsos

Movement Arts, Health Promotion and Leisure Studies Faculty Publications

Context: Grief is something that will touch all of us. We expect loss to occur in our personal lives and seem to be somewhat prepared for how to cope with it when it happens. In the profession of athletic training, we may not expect loss to occur as readily–especially if we are working with a young, seemingly healthy population. As such, when an athlete, student, or colleague suffers a catastrophic injury, illness, or death, we may not be able to process the loss and be left with unresolved grief.

Objective: The purpose of this article is to review theories ...

Brazilian Lifelong Education And Learning, John A. Henschke EdD 2010 Lindenwood University

Brazilian Lifelong Education And Learning, John A. Henschke Edd

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

Providing an overview of Brazilian Education is a task that could take volumes to present. Moreover, to do this in a comprehensive way would involve many Brazilians that have been involved with the Brazilian Educational System for many years. There are many facets that would be included in this country's rich history and present manifestation of education and learning. Nonetheless, as a visitor from the United States of America who has been privileged to visit Brazil eight times and conduct various lifelong learning education al programs there, I will attempt in this paper to offer some of my observations ...
