Finding Leadership For The Internationalization Of U.S. Higher Education, Michael Smithee 2011 Syracuse University (retired)

Finding Leadership For The Internationalization Of U.S. Higher Education, Michael Smithee

Michael B. Smithee

The internationalization of U.S. higher education has depended on leadership from a variety of sources in different strengths and purposes over time. The leadership shifted from President Lyndon Johnson's sponsorship of legislation, as part of a trilogy of legislation known as the Great Society, to a collaborative and at times competitive leadership marked by a struggle to establish international education as legitimate focus for higher education institutions. Leadership came in the form of advocates for international education who were drawn from the stakeholders. These advocates included practitioners, researchers, professional organizations, and alliances. Leader-advocates also contended with philosophical changes ...


Technological Issues For Computer-Based Assessment, Beno Csapó, John Ainley, Randy Bennett, Thibaud Latour, Nancy Law 2011 ACER

Technological Issues For Computer-Based Assessment, Beno Csapó, John Ainley, Randy Bennett, Thibaud Latour, Nancy Law

Dr John Ainley

This chapter reviews the contribution of new information-communication technologies to the advancement of educational assessment. Improvements can be described in terms of precision in detecting the actual values of the observed variables, efficiency in collecting and processing information, and speed and frequency of feedback given to the participants and stakeholders. The chapter reviews previous research and development in two ways, describing the main tendencies in four continents (Asia, Australia, Europe and the US) as well as summarising research on how technology advances assessment in certain crucial dimensions (assessment of established constructs, extension of assessment domains, assessment of new constructs and ...

Cases On Higher Education Spaces: Innovation, Collaboration And Technology, Russell Carpenter 2011 Eastern Kentucky University

Cases On Higher Education Spaces: Innovation, Collaboration And Technology, Russell Carpenter

Russell Carpenter

University Business magazine, in its recent “Collaboration Station” issue published in May, 2011, documented the recent flurry of reinvented spaces and new construction that caters to students and university populations. In it, they recall the uninviting environments of yesterday and look toward the future of designing higher education learning spaces. Higher education spaces are undergoing radical transformation in an attempt to respond to the needs of 21st-century learners and a renewed interest in collaboration that spans beyond the walls of departments, colleges, and libraries. Meanwhile, libraries, media labs, and other central higher education initiatives are reinventing their spaces through remodeled ...

Creating Polyphony With Exploratory Web Documentation In Singapore, Sirene Lim, Chee Lum 2011 UniSIM College, SIM University

Creating Polyphony With Exploratory Web Documentation In Singapore, Sirene Lim, Chee Lum

Sirene Lim

We introduce and reflect on "Images of Teaching", an ongoing web documentation research project on preschool teaching in Singapore. This paper discusses the project's purpose, methodological process, and our learning points as researchers who aim to contribute towards inquiry-based professional learning. The website offers a window into some Singaporean ways of working with young children in preschool settings; it contains video examples of authentic classroom teaching, contextualised with teacher reflections, artefacts, and interview transcripts. Based on two years of reflection and research meetings, we discuss four key learning points: a) utilising the affordances of web technology to create heteroglossia ...


Measurement Error Adjustment Using The Simex Method: An Application To Student Growth Percentiles, Yi Shang 2011 John Carroll University

Measurement Error Adjustment Using The Simex Method: An Application To Student Growth Percentiles, Yi Shang

Yi Shang

Growth models are used extensively in the context of educational accountability to evaluate student-, class-, and school-level growth. However, when error-prone test scores are used as independent variables or right-hand-side controls, the estimation of such growth models can be substantially biased. This article introduces a simulation-extrapolation (SIMEX) method that corrects measurement error induced bias. The SIMEX method is applied to quantile regression, which is the basis of Student Growth Percentile, a descriptive growth model adopted in a number of states to diagnose and project student growth. A simulation study is conducted to demonstrate the performance of the SIMEX method in ...

Disruptive Cartography In Academic Development, Beverley Hamilton, Phil Graniero 2011 University of Windsor

Disruptive Cartography In Academic Development, Beverley Hamilton, Phil Graniero

Beverley Hamilton

Drawing on cartography, urban design and visual data modelling, we consider how people navigate, or fail to navigate, the mental, physical and social spaces of knowledge communities. Cartographically inspired critical thinking offers opportunities to re-examine the assumptions and formal maps of post-secondary institutions, visualizing complexities such as knowledge circulation and ownership, and knowledge seekers’ regulated or unregulated traffic. We explore the contrast between the formal view given by typical institutional maps, and the uncovered view shown by maps of collective student activity generated by our prototype visualization tools. We suggest that a critical stance and consultative approaches to institutional mapping ...

A Citation Analysis Of The International Journal Of Self-Directed Learning: 2004-2011, Julia Kirk, Connie Shih, Becky Smeltzer, Lila Holt, Ralph Brockett 2011 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

A Citation Analysis Of The International Journal Of Self-Directed Learning: 2004-2011, Julia Kirk, Connie Shih, Becky Smeltzer, Lila Holt, Ralph Brockett

Becky C. Smeltzer

This citation analysis examined the IJSDL to determine which publications and authors have influenced the thinking of contributors to this relatively new periodical. Data analysis and queries were based on previous studies but were expanded on the basis of identified trends found in the study. Findings include most frequently cited authors, publications, major works and their dates, and magnitude of citations. Implications of the findings are addressed and charts and tables to further illustrate the findings are also included. It is evident from the study that a few major works and authors dominate the field of self-directed learning and are ...

In Pursuit Of A New Perspective In The Education Of Children Of The Refugees: Advocacy For The “Family”, Zeynep Isik-Ercan 2011 Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne

In Pursuit Of A New Perspective In The Education Of Children Of The Refugees: Advocacy For The “Family”, Zeynep Isik-Ercan

Zeynep Isik-Ercan

This paper describes a qualitative inquiry into the experiences of Burmese refugee families with elementary schools in the U.S. and proposes a new perspective for serving the educational needs of refugee children. Data included in-depth interviews with 25 Burmese families in a midsize Midwestern city. Findings from the preliminary analysis demonstrated that due to their own limited school experiences, the parents did not know how they could advocate for their children’s schooling and use academic opportunities. While the parents appreciated and encouraged their children’s school learning, they lacked the resources to support their children in negotiating academic ...
