Influencing Metacognition Through Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning: Lessons Learned From A Faculty Learning Community, Sara Ahten, Rob Anson, Ingrid Brudenell, James Goodman, Eric Orton, Kathy Reavy 2009 Boise State University

Influencing Metacognition Through Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning: Lessons Learned From A Faculty Learning Community, Sara Ahten, Rob Anson, Ingrid Brudenell, James Goodman, Eric Orton, Kathy Reavy

James A. Goodman

Over an academic year, five faculty and one staff member from diverse disciplines at Boise State University formed a faculty learning community (FLC). Meeting in-person twice a month, the community members worked to complete scholarly group and individual learning projects. Metacognition emerged as a theme and goal for collaborative computer-supported learning activities. They developed a model that fostered metacognition within the FLC as well as in student-focused learning projects. Overall, the projects illustrate the model and how faculty can influence metacognition though computer-supported collabora- tive learning. Specific applications and suggestions to promote learning are included.

Exploring Effective Support Practices For Doctoral Students' Degree Completion, Edlyn 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 ...

Webfolio - "Real Life'" Scenarios In An Online Learning Environment, Reesa Sorin

Reesa Sorin

While scenarios have often been used in face-to-face Education lectures and tutorials to get learners to apply theory to hypothetical classroom situations, using scenarios virtually, in a subject delivered entirely online, presents new and exciting challenges to pre-service teacher educators. "Webfolio" is a Webquest program created to present professional development topics to a community of online Early Childhood pre-service teachers. It includes scenarios about current and relevant professional development issues, support material to inform the scenarios. and problems to solve around each issue.


Civil Procedure For All States: A Context And Practice Casebook, Benjamin Madison, III 2009 Regent University School of Law

Civil Procedure For All States: A Context And Practice Casebook, Benjamin Madison, Iii

Benjamin V Madison, III

The casebook forms part of the "Context and Practice" casebook series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz and Gerald Hess. The casebooks integrate the method of teachin advocated by the Carnegie Insitute's EDUCATING LAWYERS (2007) and the Clinical Legal Education Association's BEST PRACTICES FOR LEGAL EDUCATION (2007). Thus, the casebooks include not only traditional case material in which students learn legal doctrine (in this case, federal and state pretrial practice and procedure), but also exercise in each chapter for the professor to employ experiential and skills learning, and exercises in each chapter in which students engage in questions of ...

A Commonly Carried Allele Of The Obesity-Related Fto Gene Is Associated With Reduced Brain Volume In The Healthy Elderly, Ivo Dinov 2009 University of Michigan - Ann Arbor

A Commonly Carried Allele Of The Obesity-Related Fto Gene Is Associated With Reduced Brain Volume In The Healthy Elderly, Ivo Dinov

Ivo D Dinov

A recently identified variant within the fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) gene is carried by 46% of Western Europeans and is associated with an ~1.2 kg higher weight, on average, in adults and an ~1 cm greater waist circumference. With >1 billion overweight and 300 million obese persons worldwide, it is crucial to understand the implications of carrying this very common allele for the health of our aging population. FTO is highly expressed in the brain and elevated body mass index (BMI) is associated with brain atrophy, but it is unknown how the obesity-associated risk allele affects human brain ...

Function Of Life Meaning And Marital Communication Among Iranian Spouses In Universiti Putra Malaysia, Siti Hassan

Siti Aishah Hassan Ph.D.

Previous researches have demonstrated that meaning of life has an essential role in human’s life. It is believed that meaning of life is an important issue in matrimony. However, there is a gap in literature to explain any relationship between meaning of life and marital communication. Purpose in Life Test (PIL), logo therapy, and Marital Communication of ENRICH were administered to fifty seven married spouses. The findings indicated the reliability of the employed instruments. In addition, the results highlighted a significant relationship between marital communication and meaning of life.

As An Educator And Educational Researcher, How Do I Improve What I Am Doing And Contribute To Educational Theories That Carry Hope For The Future Of Humanity?, Jack Whitehead

Jack Whitehead

What I want to share in this contribution to education inquiry are some insights from my educational research programme between 1973-2010 about the kind of educational theories that can explain the educational influence of an individual in their own learning, in the learning of others and in the learning of the social formations in which we live and work. These insights are focused on: i) The desire of educators to account to themselves and others for living as fully as possible the ontological values they use to give meaning and purpose to their lives in their vocation of education. ii ...


Can Social Goals Enrich Our Understanding Of Students' Motivational Goals?, Ronnel King, Dennis McInerney, David Watkins 2009 The University of Hong Kong

Can Social Goals Enrich Our Understanding Of Students' Motivational Goals?, Ronnel King, Dennis Mcinerney, David Watkins

Ronnel B King

Achievement goal theory has emerged as a dominant paradigm for understanding student motivation. However, its focus on mastery and performance goals as central constructs has led to a neglect of the role of social goals in motivating students. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different kinds of social goals (social affiliation and social concern goals) on various types of educational outcomes. Results indicate that even after controlling for the effects of the oft-examined mastery and performance goals, social goals were still able to predict additional variance in the outcomes of interest. Social concern goals ...
