Socioeconomic And School Sector Inequalities In University Entrance In Australia: The Role Of The Stratified Curriculum, Gary Marks 2009 Australian Council for Educational Research

Socioeconomic And School Sector Inequalities In University Entrance In Australia: The Role Of The Stratified Curriculum, Gary Marks

Dr. Gary N. Marks

One of the more persuasive arguments for school sector differences in students' educational performance is the role of the senior school curriculum, which is stratified, socially selective, and has an important bearing on educational outcomes. In addition, the stratified curriculum may also contribute to socioeconomic inequalities in education by directing students from higher socioeconomic backgrounds to the most beneficial aspects of the curriculum. This paper finds that course taken has strong effects on university entrance performance and participation, but its effects are largely independent of school sector and socioeconomic background. Only about 10% of the effect of attending an independent ...


Pkc Inhibition Increases Gap Junction Intercellular Communication And Cell Adhesion In Human Neuroblastoma, M. Morley, C. Jones, M. Sidhu, V. Gupta, S. Bernier, W. Rushlow, Daniel Belliveau 2009 The University of Western Ontario

Pkc Inhibition Increases Gap Junction Intercellular Communication And Cell Adhesion In Human Neuroblastoma, M. Morley, C. Jones, M. Sidhu, V. Gupta, S. Bernier, W. Rushlow, Daniel Belliveau

Daniel J. Belliveau

Abstract Gap junction intercellular communication and cell–cell adhesion are essential for maintaining a normal cellular phenotype, including the control of growth and proliferation. Loss of either cell–cell adhesion or communication is common in cancers, while restoration of function is associated with tumor suppression. Protein kinase C (PKC) isozymes regulate a broad spectrum of cellular functions including growth and proliferation, and their overexpression has been correlated with carcinogenesis. Consequently, PKC inhibitors are currently undergoing clinical trials as an anti-cancer agents although the precise cellular alterations induced by PKC inhibitors remain to be elucidated. In the current study, the effects ...


Assessment Of The Foreign Non-Government Organizations' Role In Sudan, Professor Issam Mohamed 2009 Department of Economics. Al Neelain University, Khartoum, Sudan

Assessment Of The Foreign Non-Government Organizations' Role In Sudan, Professor Issam Mohamed

Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed

The study presented reviews activities of NGOs in Sudan. That was a disputable issue that resulted in a mass expulsion of many in 2009. However¸ there were precedents of such expulsions in previous and following years. The paper discusses humanitarian work in Sudan, positive and negative sides. Reasons are that part of the hypothetical framework here is that their activities in the country are indispensible. The country still faces many humanitarian suffering in most of its regions and international aid is direly required. Thus, it is essential to rectify their modus operandi to be consistent with the culture of the ...

Another Strategy Toward Retention: Using Counseling Techniques To Help Black Faculty Succeed In The Academy, Robert Palmer, PhD, Sharon Holmes,PhD 2009 Howard University

Another Strategy Toward Retention: Using Counseling Techniques To Help Black Faculty Succeed In The Academy, Robert Palmer, Phd, Sharon Holmes,Phd

Robert T. Palmer, PhD

Retaining African American faculty at predominantly white institutions (PWIs) remains an issue of focus and concern. While researchers have investigated the institutional climate, mentorship, and social capital and their relationship with fostering a supportive campus environment for African American faculty, a dearth of research has used the counseling literature to discuss coping strategies that African American faculty can use to enhance their experiences and increase their success. The purpose of this essay is to focus on the relationship between cognitive interpretation and emotional and behavioral outcomes through rationale emotive behavioral therapy (REBT), the positive self-talk of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT ...


End User Training: What We Know, Need To Know, saurabh gupta, Robert Bostrom, Mark Huber 2009 University of North Florida

End User Training: What We Know, Need To Know, Saurabh Gupta, Robert Bostrom, Mark Huber

Saurabh Gupta

End-User Training (EUT) has enjoyed a rich tradition of research in Information Systems. However, with the growing pace of change in technology and the dynamic nature of business, organizations are spending an increasing amount of money on end-user training. Training methods are also changing with little research to support new approaches. Thus, extensive research is required in the future. To be credible, end-user training research should preserve and build upon the significant literature that exists, both in IS and Education. This paper provides a review of EUT literature focusing on training methods. It summarizes research findings, while pointing out key ...


Better To Be Frustrated Than Bored: The Incidence, Persistence, And Impact Of Learners' Cognitive-Affective States During Interactions With Three Different Computer-Based Learning Environments, Ryan Baker, Ma.Mercedes Rodrigo, Sidney D'Mello, Arthur Graesser 2009 Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Better To Be Frustrated Than Bored: The Incidence, Persistence, And Impact Of Learners' Cognitive-Affective States During Interactions With Three Different Computer-Based Learning Environments, Ryan Baker, Ma.Mercedes Rodrigo, Sidney D'Mello, Arthur Graesser

Ryan S.J.d. Baker

We study the incidence (rate of occurrence), persistence (rate of reoccurrence immediately after occurrence), and impact (effect on behavior) of students’ cognitive-affective states during their use of three different computer-based learning environments. Students’ cognitive-affective states are studied using different populations (Philippines, USA), different methods (quantitative field observation, self-report), and different types of learning environments (dialogue tutor, problemsolving game, and problem-solving based Intelligent Tutoring System). By varying the studies along these multiple factors, we can have greater confidence that findings which generalize across studies are robust. The incidence, persistence, and impact of boredom, frustration, confusion, engaged concentration, delight, and surprise were ...


Direito, Utopia E Insularidade, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2009 Universidade do Porto

Direito, Utopia E Insularidade, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Não é por acaso que tantas utopias literárias se localizam ficcionalmente em ilhas. Não é por acaso que as utopias são uma espécie de descrição constitucional sem as amarras dos artigos de um código de direito político. Não é por acaso que as ilhas, parecendo uma prisão, rodeada de mar por todos os lados, são afinal sonhos de onde se pode sair, voando. Não só em sonhos oníricos, mas em sonhos que se podem tornar realidade. Este artigo desenvolve as ligações entre os aspectos literários, políticos e jurídicos das utopias na sua dimensão insular.

Underpinnings Of Competency-Based Education, Jim Schilling, J. Randall Koettering

Jim Schilling PhD,LAT,ATC,CSCS

While behavioral science research at the turn of the 20th century laid the groundwork for the CBE approach, the process used to establish its construct in education stemmed from scientific management methodology used in industry. A history of various educational paradigms, including social efficiency, essentialism, and vocationalism, contributed to the birth and eventual use of the CBE approach in professional programs


The Use Of Tablet And Related Technologies In Mathematics Teaching, Linda Galligan, Christine McDonald, Birgit Loch, Janet Taylor 2009 University of Southern Queensland

The Use Of Tablet And Related Technologies In Mathematics Teaching, Linda Galligan, Christine Mcdonald, Birgit Loch, Janet Taylor

Janet A Taylor

According to Standards of Excellence in Teaching Mathematics in Australian Schools, excellent teachers of mathematics need to create “an environment that maximises students’ learning opportunities”; so that they can encourage self-directed learning, “model mathematical thinking and reasoning”, and provide “purposeful and timely feedback” (Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers (AAMT), 2008, Sec 3). In the last ten years new technologies have provided teachers of both school and university mathematics with more opportunities to approach such excellence. The Tablet PC and associated technologies together provide one such opportunity.

Adolescent Literature As A Complement To The Classics: Addressing Critical Issues In Today’S Classrooms, Joan Kaywell 2009 University of South Florida

Adolescent Literature As A Complement To The Classics: Addressing Critical Issues In Today’S Classrooms, Joan Kaywell

Joan F. Kaywell Ph.D

Adolescent Literature as a Complement to the Classics Addressing: Critical Issues in Today’s Classrooms was written because of the outstanding response received from teachers who have used Adolescent Literature as a Complement to the Classics, Volumes One (1993), Two (1995), Three (1997), and/or Four (2000) in their classrooms. Additionally, since many young adult (YA) books go out of print almost as quickly as they come into print, it was time to update the recommended books and incorporate additional strategies that involve the use of media and technology. Consistent with the series, this text is based on two assumptions ...
