The Role Of Pete In Developing Joy-Oriented Physical Educators, Bonnie Tjeerdsma Blankenship, Suzan F. Ayers 2010 Western Michigan University

The Role Of Pete In Developing Joy-Oriented Physical Educators, Bonnie Tjeerdsma Blankenship, Suzan F. Ayers

Human Performance and Health Education Faculty Research

The current focus on utilitarian outcomes (e.g., fitness, health, skill development) in physical education has not been effective in producing life-long movers and makes physical activity a duty to be performed. An alternative to a utilitarian focus is to have a joy-oriented focus in which physical activity is promoted because it is joyful, pleasurable, and personally meaningful. In this paper, we present factors that inhibit a joy-oriented focus in physical education and reasons physical education teacher education (PETE) programs have thus far failed to produce joy-oriented physical education teachers. We then present a new approach to PETE—the foundational ...

The Kodaly Method In The Twenty First Century, Sharon Lierse 2010 SelectedWorks

The Kodaly Method In The Twenty First Century, Sharon Lierse

Dr. Sharon Lierse

Music methodologies provide educators with a defined curriculum which transpires students to a level of musical proficiency. They are often designed for young children and can be adapted to different cultures. The Kod_a_ly Method was developed in Hungary during the 1940s and is based on the premise that children should acquire music skills from an early age. It was first used in Hungarian schools and subsequently has been used in training institutions around the world. Since the implementation of the Kod_a_ly Method there have been many social, economic and political developments which have impacted arts and education. A group of ...

A Dynamic Information Generation Approach For He: Ig3 Characteristics, Jeffrey Barker, K. Sabry 2010 Bond University

A Dynamic Information Generation Approach For He: Ig3 Characteristics, Jeffrey Barker, K. Sabry

Jeffrey Barker

This paper proposes the integration of Information Generation 3 (IG3) principles to education systems to advance curriculum and instruction from traditional static designs to build dynamic learning communities and courses in higher education. Dynamic information should stimulate and support methodological flexibility for converging learner-centred and knowledge-centred education environments. This convergence is achieved through a complex mix of connected digital devices and pedagogical methods proven effective by any number of learning theories. Flexibility and diversity are important principles in the IG3 approach to permit the application of multiple scalable digital communication tools, teaching methods and decision-making to advance this new direction ...


Ten Good Reasons For Using A Translation Memory, Uwe Muegge 2010 Monterey Institute of International Studies

Ten Good Reasons For Using A Translation Memory, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

More than 20 years after the first commercial translation memory products became available, surveys indicate that while the vast majority of those surveyed do use a translation memory system, less than 30 percent of translators use this type of tool for every translation project or on a daily basis. Studies of translation memory usage among even the most technically advanced users show that the benefits of using a translation memory - beyond reusing existing translation - are still not well understood.

Imagining A Better World: Service-Learning As Benefit To Teacher Education, Virginia M. Jagla, Antonina Lukenchuk, Todd A. Price Dr. 2010 National Louis University

Imagining A Better World: Service-Learning As Benefit To Teacher Education, Virginia M. Jagla, Antonina Lukenchuk, Todd A. Price Dr.

Faculty Publications

This study intends to broaden the conception of service-learning and to expand on its models, epistemological positions, and exemplars. Our intentions are to develop a substantive analysis of service-learning in its current theoretical development and to diversify service-learning pedagogical repertoire for teacher education candidates in graduate education programs. As university faculty, who embed service-learning components in various education courses, we are concerned with the manner in which higher education institutions manage their practices—primarily according to narrowly conceived technical and prescriptive models, thereby restricting multiple ways of knowing, teaching and learning. We demonstrate how service-learning can develop new forms of ...


Racial Differences In The Formation Of Postsecondary Educational Expectations: A Structural Model, Samuel D. Museus, Ph.D., Shaun R. Harper, Ph.D., Andrew H. Nichols, Ph.D. 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Racial Differences In The Formation Of Postsecondary Educational Expectations: A Structural Model, Samuel D. Museus, Ph.D., Shaun R. Harper, Ph.D., Andrew H. Nichols, Ph.D.

Shaun R. Harper, Ph.D.

Educational attainment is associated with a plethora of positive economic and social implications for individuals, institutions, and the broader society. One factor that has been identified as an important predictor of students’ educational attainment is their educational expectations. Thus, understanding how educational expectations are shaped is important to comprehending how success can be fostered among students from diverse racial backgrounds. This quantitative study was aimed at understanding the process by which students from various racial backgrounds cultivate and reformulate their educational expectations during the high school years. Three research questions were explored in this study: (1) How do various academic ...


Teaching With Emotion: Enriching The Educational Experience Of First-Year Law Students, Grant H. Morris 2010 Univerisity of San Diego School of Law

Teaching With Emotion: Enriching The Educational Experience Of First-Year Law Students, Grant H. Morris

Grant H Morris

Through the case method and Socratic dialogue, first year law students are taught to develop critical legal analytic skills–to “think like a lawyer.” Those skills, however, are primarily, if not entirely, intellectual. This article discusses the need to address emotional issues in educating law students. Unlike other articles, my article does not merely urge professors to raise such issues in their classes and discuss them analytically. Rather, I want students to actually experience emotion in the classroom setting as they discuss various fact situations and the legal principles involved in the resolution of disputes involving those facts. Law students ...

What's Love Got To Do With It? Could It Lead Us To The "Great Colleagues" Triangle?, Jamie Comstock 2010 Butler University

What's Love Got To Do With It? Could It Lead Us To The "Great Colleagues" Triangle?, Jamie Comstock

Jayne Marie Comstock

I used this presentation to close a two day Provost Advisory Council (PAC) off-campus retreat and to inspire strong collegial relationships among this important work group, which I chair. As part of the retreat activities, each PAC member delivered an “Expert Moment” presentation that was to highlight their discipline-related expertise in a way that would be relevant to the group. Generally, my discipline scholarship focused on predicaments in personal and professional relationships. So, in keeping with my recent focus on collegiality on campus, I drew upon literature about close personal relationships to set up an active discussion about what I ...
