Undergraduate Finance Capstone In A Liberal Arts Setting: An Active Learning Approach, Steven Welch 2011 College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University

Undergraduate Finance Capstone In A Liberal Arts Setting: An Active Learning Approach, Steven Welch

Accounting and Finance Faculty Publications

In a liberal arts setting, there are no “schools” or “colleges” in which to neatly group a capstone experience. We have developed a course meant to address a capstone experience, while being true to a focus within our particular major. In this paper, an effort to create a course designed as a capstone experience specific to the finance discipline using an active learning strategy is reviewed. The primary method of instruction is with case studies. However, only the first part of the course is taught using the traditional case teaching method. Most of the rest of the course is taught ...

Raising The Kindergarten Entry Age, Misty Newcomb, Gary W. Ritter 2011 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Raising The Kindergarten Entry Age, Misty Newcomb, Gary W. Ritter

Policy Briefs

In recent years, the standards in Arkansas for entry into kindergarten underwent changes that can be difficult to understand. Across the nation, states have increased the minimum age of entry into public schools, and Arkansas is no exception. Recently, a policymaker in our state asked the OEP to look into the research surrounding the question of raising the kindergarten entry age. This policy brief discusses the new requirements as well as the impact of these requirements on families and children in the short and long term by looking at recent changes in Arkansas law and studies concerning the effect of ...

The Effect Of Choice On The Behavior Of Off Task High School Students In An Alternative School Setting, Laura Campbell 2011 Rowan University

The Effect Of Choice On The Behavior Of Off Task High School Students In An Alternative School Setting, Laura Campbell

Theses and Dissertations

This study was done to examine the effect of choice on off task behaviors in high school students attending an alternative school. The participants were from various backgrounds, ability levels, and presence of disabilities. The students were observed performing three target behaviors; specifically talking off topic, being out of a seat needlessly, and being out of the classroom. This was initiated during a baseline observation period, and again over a five day period after being introduced to the choice process. The alternative activities from which they chose were lesson extensions, educational puzzles or reading material, or classroom jobs. This was ...


I Can U Can: Six Strategies For Building Teachers’ Ict Confidence And Capability Through Metacognitive Discussion And Reflection: Experiences From Technology Together, Renata Phelps, Anne Graham, Sharon Brennan, Carolyn Carrigan 2011 Southern Cross University

I Can U Can: Six Strategies For Building Teachers’ Ict Confidence And Capability Through Metacognitive Discussion And Reflection: Experiences From Technology Together, Renata Phelps, Anne Graham, Sharon Brennan, Carolyn Carrigan

Dr Renata Phelps

When people are prompted to think about their values, beliefs and their past experiences they will often start to recognise factors that impact on their learning and this recognition can bring key insights into how they can help themselves to change. It can assist them to realise the strengths and limitations of various learning strategies and change their perspectives and behaviours. Computer learners can also be prompted to see that becoming a proficient computer using teacher is more about their attitudes and learning strategies than it is about having some ‘magic’ personal quality or set of skills. Technology Together, the ...


Technology Together: Supporting Whole-Schools To Become Capable Learning Communities, Renata Phelps, Anne Graham, Elizabeth Watts, Anne O'Brien 2011 Southern Cross University

Technology Together: Supporting Whole-Schools To Become Capable Learning Communities, Renata Phelps, Anne Graham, Elizabeth Watts, Anne O'Brien

Dr Renata Phelps

While many teachers are integrating information and communication technology (ICT) in their teaching practice, there are still a significant number of teachers who are hesitant, reluctant or resistant to using technology, either personally and/or in their teaching. Many teachers remain daunted by the rapid rate of technological change, and the inability to feel as though they ‘know enough’. While most approaches to teacher professional development concentrate on skill development of individual teachers, this paper describes an approach that focuses instead on the values, attitudes, beliefs, confidence and learning strategies of teachers, and on building a culture within a school ...
