Rethinking Eco-Justice Within A Biophilic Framework: A Rejoinder, Donald J. Burgess 2017 Western Washington University

Rethinking Eco-Justice Within A Biophilic Framework: A Rejoinder, Donald J. Burgess

Donald Burgess

I commend Professor Bowers for alerting us to the important role that current ecological crisis plays in the social justice issues centered on class, race and gender. Bowers’ persuasive reframing of social justice issues in terms of eco-justice left me wondering if part of the problem lies in our human species’ aloof disregard of nature. Many of us spend far too little time hearing, seeing and building relationships with the birds, plants and animals that share our immediate environment. Mueller’s rejoinder to Bowers’ rethinking of social justice helped me visualize a naturalist’s keen attention to the natural world ...

A Student-Created, Open Access, Living Textbook, Sualyneth Galarza, Sarah L. Perry, Shelly Peyton

Shelly Peyton

Textbooks are expensive, updated infrequently, and rarely used effectively by students. We discuss here a way for students to create the textbook for the course, helping them feel ownership over the course material. This Wiki-based, student-created textbook is online free for use, widely accessible by all, and editable during the course of and as topics evolve. This type of textbook format is particularly well suited to upper-level electives on topics that are rapidly emerging. We have nucleated a student created textbook here, fully online and open access, for two upper elective courses in chemical engineering. Wikis offer an easy-to-learn platform ...

The theoretical framework used was Latina critical race theory, feminist theory, and counter storytelling. Identified themes were strong supportive mother, fervent faith, humble beginnings, mentors, intelligent, and challenges not obstacles.

The 1771 chart was drawn by Miguel Costanso, royal engineer for the Kingdom of New Spain, who accompanied the 1769 expedition led by Captain Gaspar de Portola to establish a settlement at Monterey Bay previously discovered by Sebastián Vizcaino in 1603. The chart depicts the Pacific Ocean, the entire eastern and western coast of the California peninsula, the Sea of Cortez, and the coasts of North America, from the isthmus that connects this peninsula with the mainland to the River of the Kings (R de los Reyes), and from the Colorado River to the Cape of Corrientes.

Inferential Style, School Teachers, And Depressive Symptoms In College Students., Caroline M. Pittard, Patrick Pössel, Timothy Lau 2017 University of Louisville

Inferential Style, School Teachers, And Depressive Symptoms In College Students., Caroline M. Pittard, Patrick Pössel, Timothy Lau

Patrick Pössel

Depressive symptoms affect around half of students at some point during college. According to the hopelessness theory of depression, making negative inferences about stressful events is a vulnerability for developing depression. Negative and socio-emotional teaching behavior can be stressors that are associated with depression in school students. First-time college freshmen completed the Cognitive Style Questionnaire (CSQ), Teaching Behavior Questionnaire (TBQ), and Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D). While completing the TBQ, participants reported on a teacher from prior education to college. Multiple regression analysis found significant effects of the independent variables (four teaching behavior types, inferential style, and interactions ...

Social Justice Through Citizenship Education: A Collective Responsibility, Sara Winstead Fry, Jason O'Brien 2017 Boise State University

Social Justice Through Citizenship Education: A Collective Responsibility, Sara Winstead Fry, Jason O'Brien

Sara Winstead Fry

Existing research suggests that preservice elementary teachers tend to believe “good” citizens are people who follow laws and help others rather than people who embrace a more active model of citizenship that includes working to improve society. The authors propose that this trend results from a self-perpetuating cycle of passive citizenship that develops in part due to state curriculum standards and school experiences which focus on transmitting knowledge rather than preparing students to be active agents of change. The article presents the results of action research conducted in a teacher preparation course; the research was designed to investigate the impact ...

Assessment Of Student Learning Using Augmented Reality Grand Canyon Field Trips For Mobile Smart Devices, Natalie Bursztyn, Andy Walker, Brett Shelton, Joel Pederson

Brett E. Shelton

In searching for ways to improve undergraduate success in introductory geoscience courses, the importance of experiential learning in engaging students has become clear—and in geoscience, that is encapsulated best by field trips. However, as general education class sizes increase, so do the cost, liability, and difficulty of running a field trip. A solution for economically and conveniently bringing kinesthetic field experiences to a broader audience lies in the integration of technology through mobile-device games, apps, and augmented reality (AR) field trips. We report here an examination of learning gains at five colleges after intervention with augmented reality field trips ...

The Advent Of University-Level Packaging Scholarship: The Time, The Place And The People, Diana Twede, Laura Bix 2017 Michigan State University

The Advent Of University-Level Packaging Scholarship: The Time, The Place And The People, Diana Twede, Laura Bix

Journal of Applied Packaging Research

In 1952, Michigan State College (MSC), now Michigan State University (MSU), was the first university in the world to offer a Bachelor of Science degree in Packaging. Other universities had previously offered related courses like canning (as part of a food science degree) or military packaging (in wartime), but MSU was the first to propose packaging as its own academic field of scholarship.

Other universities followed, sharing faculty and curriculum models developed at MSU. As a result, graduates’ careers in packaging now have a higher professional status, and universities play a key role in developing our international community of packaging ...

Online Education Is Faulty And Needs Reform, Aldemaro Romero Jr. 2017 CUNY Bernard M Baruch College

Online Education Is Faulty And Needs Reform, Aldemaro Romero Jr.

Publications and Research

Online courses have become very popular – and very controversial – for many reasons. In the fall of 2014 there were 5.8 million students taking online courses, with 2.85 million taking all of their courses online. Originally being offered by for-profit institutions, now a number of public colleges and universities are offering them under a number of premises, such as making higher education more accessible, the belief that offering on-line courses is cheaper than in person and that they provide an easier way to learn.

Yet, it has been the common wisdom that students consistently perform worse in an online ...
