Breaking The Silence: Examining Personal Preparedness Of Supporting Students Living With Hiv/Aids, Christopher Purcell 2010 University of Vermont

Breaking The Silence: Examining Personal Preparedness Of Supporting Students Living With Hiv/Aids, Christopher Purcell

The Vermont Connection

Often, when an article is written, it implies a certain level of expertise on the part of the author. I do not know if one can ever be an expert on supporting friends, family members, and students living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. This article is not a declaration of finite practices of being an ally to these individuals. Rather, it draws from personal reflection, public health research, and student affairs theory to make sense of a personal journey where HIV/AIDS has touched nearly every aspect of my life: family, friends, colleagues, and students. This article asks the ...

Dispelling The Meritocracy Myth: Lessons For Higher Education And Student Affairs Educators, Lorriz Anne Alvarado 2010 University of Vermont

Dispelling The Meritocracy Myth: Lessons For Higher Education And Student Affairs Educators, Lorriz Anne Alvarado

The Vermont Connection

“Just work hard and you will succeed.” This phrase and others like it represent the belief in meritocracy, which is repeated and perpetuated in our society by role models, friends, government, media, and ourselves. The myth of meritocracy is a part of the utopian belief in the American Dream, which continues to be an active narrative in Americans’ lives that many do not realize is simply a dream and not based on reality. As educators, how do we confront the meritocracy narrative and better understand how it affects our work and our impact on students? This article updates professionals on ...


Modern Colonialism In African Education: The Wave Of Foreign Investment In Sub-Saharan Africa, Amarildo Barbosa 2010 University of Vermont

Modern Colonialism In African Education: The Wave Of Foreign Investment In Sub-Saharan Africa, Amarildo Barbosa

The Vermont Connection

Many African scholars feel that there is a need for a re-focusing of goals and purpose among universities in Sub-Saharan Africa. Because of the low retention rate of graduates, who continue to emigrate and work outside of Africa, scholars often view African higher education as a loss of investment. A current educational objective in Sub-Saharan Africa is creating a new generation of African universities that are focused on community development projects and programs aimed at aiding problems related to civil works. With significant financial assistance from foreign investors, however, African universities must be wary of the control external parties will ...


The Role Of Critical Race Theory In Higher Education, Payne Hiraldo 2010 University of Vermont

The Role Of Critical Race Theory In Higher Education, Payne Hiraldo

The Vermont Connection

Despite the substantial impact race has in generating inequities in society and educational institutions, race continues to be untheorized (Ladson-Billings & Tate, 1995). Critical race theory (CRT) is an analytical framework that stems from the field of critical legal studies that addresses the racial inequities in society. This article provides an analysis of CRT in the context of diversity and inclusivity in higher education. In addition, this article also draws from the work and research done by critical race theorists who support the use of CRT in education reform and research.


Tradition Today: How Student Affairs Professionals Can Strengthen And Preserve Campus Traditions, Matthew J. Van Jura 2010 University of Vermont

Tradition Today: How Student Affairs Professionals Can Strengthen And Preserve Campus Traditions, Matthew J. Van Jura

The Vermont Connection

On November 18, 1999, 12 people were killed and 27 injured when the tower of logs they had erected collapsed, crushing the victims underneath. This tragedy took place on the campus of Texas A&M University, where students had been preparing for “Bonfire,” an annual tradition nearly 90 years old. As a result of tragedies like this, some critics oppose campus traditions. Yet, traditions have long played an instrumental role on college campuses through their ability to build community, connect students with the heritage of their alma mater, and develop institutional pride. The question facing many administrators today is what ...


Do Role-Playing Simulations Generate Measurable And Meaningful Outcomes? A Simulation’S Effect On Exam Scores And Teaching Evaluations, Chad Raymond 2010 Salve Regina University

Do Role-Playing Simulations Generate Measurable And Meaningful Outcomes? A Simulation’S Effect On Exam Scores And Teaching Evaluations, Chad Raymond

Faculty and Staff - Articles & Papers

Role-playing simulations are frequently claimed to be effective pedagogical tools in the teaching of international relations; however, there is a surprising lack of empirical evidence on their classroom utility. The assessment of simulations remains mostly anecdotal, and some recent research has found little to no statistically significant improvements in quantitative measures of academic performance among students who participated in them (e.g,, Krain and Lantis 2006; Powner and Allendoerfer 2008). Scant research has been conducted on how role-playing simulations might affect students’ perceptions of the instructor’s teaching. This paper investigates whether a simulation had statistically significant effect on students ...

Universal Instructional Design: Tools For Creating An Inclusive Educational Experience, Stacey Banfield-Hardaway 2010 University of Vermont

Universal Instructional Design: Tools For Creating An Inclusive Educational Experience, Stacey Banfield-Hardaway

The Vermont Connection

The number of students with disabilities on college campuses in the United States is growing. To address the needs of these students, all campus community members must evaluate the degree to which the campus environment and social climate are welcoming to students with disabilities. The barriers students with disabilities face can be seen in the classroom, academic and administrative buildings, and in relationships among campus community members. Universal instructional design is an approach to address the needs of students with disabilities and deconstruct prejudice against them.

Technology And Mother-Tongue Literacy In Southern India: Impact Studies Among Young Children And Out-Of-School Youth, Daniel A. Wagner, C. J. Daswani, Romilla Karnati 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Technology And Mother-Tongue Literacy In Southern India: Impact Studies Among Young Children And Out-Of-School Youth, Daniel A. Wagner, C. J. Daswani, Romilla Karnati

Journal Articles (Literacy.org)

The present research began with one main question: How can new technologies be effective for poor and illiterate children and youth in developing countries? We addressed this question through a research-based implementation project in India that included the development of local language multimedia software for literacy; a built-in, user-friendly interface; and the use of existing computer infrastructure. Two studies were undertaken in Andhra Pradesh state. One included a sample of youth and young adults who had never gone to school (or dropped out early) in peri-urban Hyderabad, and the other was composed of young second- and third-grade school children in ...
