Causal Effects Of Single-Sex Schools On College Entrance Exams And College Attendance: Random Assignment In Seoul High Schools, Hyunjoon Park, Jere R. Behrman, Jaesung Choi 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Causal Effects Of Single-Sex Schools On College Entrance Exams And College Attendance: Random Assignment In Seoul High Schools, Hyunjoon Park, Jere R. Behrman, Jaesung Choi

Hyunjoon Park

Despite the voluminous literature on the potentials of single-sex schools, there is no consensus on the effects of single-sex schools because of student selection of school types. We exploit a unique feature of schooling in Seoul, the random assignment of students into single-sex versus coeducational high schools, to assess causal effects of single-sex schools on college entrance exam scores and college attendance. Our validation of the random assignment shows comparable socioeconomic backgrounds and prior academic achievement of students attending single-sex schools and coeducational schools, which increases the credibility of our causal estimates of single-sex school effects. Attending all-boys schools or ...


Book Review: Diary Of A French Girl: Surviving Intercultural Encounters, Shelley Kinash 2010 Bond University

Book Review: Diary Of A French Girl: Surviving Intercultural Encounters, Shelley Kinash

Shelley Kinash

Extract: What if we were privy to the innermost thoughts and feelings of one of our international students? What if we could read what she wrote home to her Mum and Dad and her best friend? What if we could read what she dared not even tell them, revealed only in her diary? What would she say about living in Australia? What would she say about the people she met? What would she say about the university and about our teaching? Now we can, and it is very revealing.

Building A Private School In China: A Case Study Of An Ordinary Private School In Jiangsu Province, Molin Zhong 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Building A Private School In China: A Case Study Of An Ordinary Private School In Jiangsu Province, Molin Zhong

Social Impact Research Experience (SIRE)

This research paper is a case study of an ordinary private school in China. It specifically looks at what sorts of strategies the school in question used in order to compete in a confusing and nebulous sector of the Chinese economy. Through the effective management of external relationships with financiers, the local government, and the educational community as well as the internal relationships with the management structure, employees, and students, the school has achieved a measure of success. By success, the researcher means that the school has been able to survive in a difficult economic environment and maintain growth prospects ...


Pushing Library Information To First-Year Students: An Exploratory Study Of Faculty/Library Collaboration, Julia Gross, Eva Dobozy 2010 Edith Cowan University

Pushing Library Information To First-Year Students: An Exploratory Study Of Faculty/Library Collaboration, Julia Gross, Eva Dobozy

ECU Publications Pre. 2011

The authors contend that better information literacy and library skills development practice is needed for students entering university. This paper presents a case study of how a teacher education (TE) lecturer and a faculty librarian collaborated in an Australian university to provide information literacy practice. A mutual interest in technology-enhanced learning and teaching through podcasting media was the catalyst for the collaboration. A semester-long trial was conducted in which library pod/vodcasts were provided to first-year teacher education students. This paper explores this student learning and proposes a prototype for further media-related collaboration between academic and library staff.

E-Partnerships: Library Information Acquisition In The Comfort Of Students’ Digital Homes, Julia Gross, Eva Dobozy 2010 Edith Cowan University

E-Partnerships: Library Information Acquisition In The Comfort Of Students’ Digital Homes, Julia Gross, Eva Dobozy

ECU Publications Pre. 2011

This paper presents a case study of how a university lecturer and a faculty librarian built upon their shared concerns about first-year students’ lack of information literacy. It describes in some detail their underlying beliefs, which led to this experimental intervention design and the strategic e-partnership. Embedded library podcasts were used to push library information to students. The potential and actual impact of this e-partnership on personalised support for a diverse student body is explored and an argument is presented for e-partnerships among university staff in an effort to better assist first-year higher education students.


Virtual Arts: Visual Arts Education In The Virtual World Of Second Life, Lisa Jacka, Allan Ellis 2010 Southern Cross University

Virtual Arts: Visual Arts Education In The Virtual World Of Second Life, Lisa Jacka, Allan Ellis

Dr Lisa Jacka

Virtual worlds are emerging as the new frontier in the use of ICTs for the engagement of students in primary, secondary and tertiary education. In 2010 the use of the virtual world, Second Life, was trialled as a pedagogical tool in the training of Visual Art Education students studying at Southern Cross University. The students, physically located at three regional campuses, spent time in-world discussing concepts, visiting art sites, creating 2D and 3D art work and designing an exhibition space. This case study makes a comparison between traditional and mixed mode delivery and recommendations are proposed in relation to strategies ...

The Surprise Element: How Allaying Parents' Misconceptions Improves A Teacher's Communicative Process, Rashmi Kumar 2010 University of Pennsylvania

The Surprise Element: How Allaying Parents' Misconceptions Improves A Teacher's Communicative Process, Rashmi Kumar

VPUL Works

Challenged by parents' misconceptions about the role of cooperative learning activities in developing their gifted children, a teacher began to mentor the parents. The act of mentoring those parents resulted in the teacher's longer-term professional development: specifically, creating a process of seeking structured feedback from parents and following up through iterative cycles of reflection, appraisal, and revision.

Many teachers can identify a critical learning juncture that has had a notable influence on their learning and professional growth. Often, teachers locate such epiphanies within everyday teaching practices, advanced studies, or opportunities for professional development (Clarke and Hollingsworth 1994, 2002). The ...
