Reducing Dependence On Big Brother: Higher Education Looks For Innovative Funding Opportunities, Ralph E. McKinney Jr., Lawrence P. Shao, Patrick A. Tissington 2010 Marshall University

Reducing Dependence On Big Brother: Higher Education Looks For Innovative Funding Opportunities, Ralph E. Mckinney Jr., Lawrence P. Shao, Patrick A. Tissington

Management Faculty Research

This paper presents innovative programs that business schools can utilize to reduce dependence on public funds. A review of the literature shows the theoretical and empirical foundation of higher education funding dilemmas. While higher education is moving towards a global ambition, scarcity hinders governments to fully support programs long-term; thus, cost-sharing and cost-shifting measures must occur for higher education to support current programs. In this study, we examine two universities (one U.S. and one UK.) and provide practical summaries of programs that have provided additional funds. We show that diversity of funding sources is essential for survival of higher ...


Implementing And Evaluating A 'Next Generation Learning Space': A Pilot Study, Gail Wilson, Marcus Randall 2010 Southern Cross University

Implementing And Evaluating A 'Next Generation Learning Space': A Pilot Study, Gail Wilson, Marcus Randall

Centre for Teaching and Learning

A dramatic, pedagogical shift has occurred in recent years in educational environments in higher education, supported largely by the use of ubiquitous technologies. Increasingly, emphasis is being placed on the design of new learning spaces, often referred to as “Next Generation Learning Spaces” and their impact on pedagogy. The idea of “classroom” now incorporates the use of both physical and virtual space. This change has meant a greater focus on the design and use of flexible learning spaces, more use of blended learning approaches and more personalised, individualised learning opportunities for students. While many such classrooms have been built and ...

Teaching Science Using Guided Inquiry As The Central Theme: A Professional Development Model For High School Science Teachers., Anil Banerjee

Faculty Bibliography

The author describes a professional development model for high school science teachers based on the framework of inquiry and science standards. The ‘Learn-TeachAssess Inquiry’ model focuses on guided inquiry labs as the central theme and builds on these labs to reinforce science concepts and abilities to understand and engage in inquiry in accordance with national/ state science standards. A professional development model for high school science teachers based on the framework of inquiry and National Science Education Standards has been developed and field tested for three years. This model requires intensive involvement of teachers and project personnel in workshops, material ...


Mathematical Notation: Help Or Hindrance?, Geoff D. Tennant Dr 2010 Institute of Educational Development, East Africa

Mathematical Notation: Help Or Hindrance?, Geoff D. Tennant Dr

Institute for Educational Development, East Africa

This article puts forward a range of reasons for using mathematical notation, emphasizing the need to allow children learning it time and space to come to terms with it. Examples are given in furthering the argument that the time to introduce notation is after the concept is already fully understood.

Two hundred and eleven UAE general and special education teachers participated in this study. Results re-vealed that participants have a moderate level of awareness of testing modifications when assessing students ...

Conflict Interpretation: A Comparison Of Canadian And Italian Aggressive And Non-Aggressive Youth, Andrea Smorti, Enrica Ciucci, Anne Mckeough Mckeough, Jennifer Malcolm, Dawn Bremner

Exceptionality Education International

The impact of persistent aggression on youths’ social and psychological well being is well documented. What is less well understood is the shaping effect of cultural differences on how such conflict is experienced and responded to. In this study, we asked youth to write a story about a conflict they experienced and describe their associated feelings. Participants included Canadian and Italian girls and boys from grades 4 and 7 who were rated by their teachers as either aggressive or non-aggressive. Results indicated that although there were no significant main effects for behavioural group or country in the description of the ...

The Occurrence Of Chestnut Lamprey (Lchthyomyzon Castaneus; Pisces: Petromyzontidae) In The Chariton River In South-Central Iowa, Mark K. Flammang, John R. Olson 2010 Iowa Department of Natural Resources

The Occurrence Of Chestnut Lamprey (Lchthyomyzon Castaneus; Pisces: Petromyzontidae) In The Chariton River In South-Central Iowa, Mark K. Flammang, John R. Olson

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

In the mid-1990s, Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) Fisheries Bureau biologists began receiving reports from anglers of a parasitic lamprey attached to fish taken immediately downstream from Rathbun Lake on the Chariton River in south-central Iowa; these reports have continued to present. In 2002, the IDNR received and identified a chestnut lamprey (Ichthyomyzon castaneus Girard) from an angler who removed the lamprey from a common carp (Cyprinus carpio Linnaeus) he captured. This record was the first for a lamprey from the Chariton River drainage in Iowa. Five additional specimens of chestnut lamprey have been collected and identified since this ...


Mammal Capture Success Of Scent Stations And Remote Cameras In Prairie And Forest Habitat, Marc N. McKinney, Aaron M. Haines 2010 Upper Iowa University

Mammal Capture Success Of Scent Stations And Remote Cameras In Prairie And Forest Habitat, Marc N. Mckinney, Aaron M. Haines

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Two common noninvasive (i.e., no stress to the animal) methods used to survey mammals include track stations (i.e., track captures of mammals) and remote camera-traps (i.e., photo-captures of mammals). Our objectives were to compare capture effectiveness of both track stations and remote cameras in both forested and prairie habitats. This project was conducted on 4 study sires (2 forested sires and 2 prairie sites) located in Fayette County, Iowa. Each study site had 6 trapping stations 2:: 100 m apart. We monitored traps for a total of 216 trap nights and we recorded a total of 368 ...

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

This capsule on the International History and Philosophy of Andragogy is mainly limited (with a few exceptions) to a chronological history and the accompanying philosophy of andragogy, in line with when the English language documents were published and personal descriptions of events were written down. Some of these documents, however, presents aspect of the events and ideas which recount the years and contexts prior to the time in which they appeared in published form. To date, more than 330 documents have been discovered, but space limitation in this chapter allowed the inclusion of only a fraction of that number. Each ...
