Creating The Capable Public: A Call For Liberal Arts Education In Public Schools, Olivia R. Keithley 2016 Ursinus College

Creating The Capable Public: A Call For Liberal Arts Education In Public Schools, Olivia R. Keithley

Education Honors Papers

I argue that liberal arts education is critically important to the creation of a capable public in a democratic society. I draw on David Labaree and Henry Giroux to assert that education is a public good and must serve the purpose of promoting democratic equality. By promoting democratic equality, public education is capable of creating publicly minded citizens. Publicly minded citizens of a democracy must also be free-thinking. Liberal arts education has at its core the aim of creating individuals who are able to think freely and autonomously. In a democratic society where freethinking citizens are necessary in order to ...


Education, Emily C. Hannum, Yu Xie 2016 University of Pennsylvania

Education, Emily C. Hannum, Yu Xie

Emily C. Hannum

This manuscript offers an overview of key research in the social sciences regarding links between poverty and education. We begin by discussing conceptual definitions of poverty and education and the ways these concepts have been operationalized in the literature. We then review literatures related to two broad themes: how poverty shapes educational outcomes, and how education affects chances of living in poverty. Within each theme, wherever possible, we consider research at the national, sub-national, and household or individual level.


Towards A Lifelong Learning Society Through Reading Promotion: Opportunities And Challenges For Libraries And Community Learning Centres In Viet Nam, Zakir Hossain 2016 EUROPEAN International School Ho Chi Minh City

Towards A Lifelong Learning Society Through Reading Promotion: Opportunities And Challenges For Libraries And Community Learning Centres In Viet Nam, Zakir Hossain

Zakir Hossain

The government of Viet Nam has made a commitment to build a Lifelong Learning Society by 2020. A range of related initiatives have been launched, including the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Centre for Lifelong Learning (SEAMEO CELLL) and “Book Day” – a day aimed at encouraging reading and raising awareness of its importance for the development of knowledge and skills. Viet Nam also aims to implement lifelong learning (LLL) activities in libraries, museums, cultural centres and clubs. The government of Viet Nam currently operates more than 11,900 Community Learning Centres (CLCs) and is in the process of both ...


Preparing Educators For A Diverse World: Understanding Sexual Prejudice Among Pre-Service Teachers, Joelyn K. Foy Ph.D., Sheryl Hodge Ph.D. 2016 Arkansas State University Newport

Preparing Educators For A Diverse World: Understanding Sexual Prejudice Among Pre-Service Teachers, Joelyn K. Foy Ph.D., Sheryl Hodge Ph.D.

Prairie Journal of Educational Research

An important role of schooling in the U.S. is to prepare students for engagement in the diverse world. This means that education personnel must be aware of, acknowledge, and respect all dimensions of diversity, including gender and sexual diversity. Relatedly is the teacher's role in managing a safe and inclusive classroom climate for all students. Since school bullies frequently target gender and sexually diverse (GSD) students, K-12 teachers are required to manage their classroom culture so that bullying behavior toward all students, including GSD students, is stopped. GSD students who are bullied frequently miss school, earn lower grades ...


Beyond Navel Gazing: The Evidence Base For Employing Reflective And Metacognitive Practices In Our Teaching, Sarah Leupen 2016 University of Maryland

Beyond Navel Gazing: The Evidence Base For Employing Reflective And Metacognitive Practices In Our Teaching, Sarah Leupen

SoTL Commons Conference

Most of us work hard to build our students’ discipline-specific skills, content knowledge, and even that elusive goal, critical thinking. Rarely, though, do we train our students in how to reflect on their learning practices and current level of understanding, or how to change their practices to deepen understanding. Lacking such skills, they often exhibit shocking (to us!) failures to make connections among what they have learned, improve ineffective study behaviors, or see what they’re learning in a broader context. The research in cognitive science now demonstrates the importance and value of metacognition and reflection in formal learning, and ...


Why Do They Stay? A Phenomenological Study On The Lived Experiences Of Teachers Who Persist In Urban K-12 Christian Education, Marie Teodori 2016 Liberty University

Why Do They Stay? A Phenomenological Study On The Lived Experiences Of Teachers Who Persist In Urban K-12 Christian Education, Marie Teodori

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

The purpose of this transcendental phenomenological study was to describe the lived experiences of teachers who persist in urban K-12 Christian education at five Association of Christian Schools International schools located in the United States. The central research question was: What are the lived experiences of teachers who persist in urban K-12 Christian education? Sub-questions explored the source of motivation, role of intrinsic goals, and contextual/environmental supports for teachers who persist in this setting. Methodology utilized a transcendental phenomenological design, purposeful participant sampling, data collection primarily through in-depth interviews and focus groups, and data analysis using Moustakas’ (1994) recommended ...


The Creation And Assessment Of A Social Integration Predictive Model For A Large Suburban Community College, Bob Bade 2016 Liberty University

The Creation And Assessment Of A Social Integration Predictive Model For A Large Suburban Community College, Bob Bade

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

The purpose of this predictive correlation study was to create and assess a model of programs and activities to predict student social integration at a large suburban community college. This study’s model was based upon Tinto’s student integration theory (1975, 1987, 1993) and employed hierarchical multiple regression to analyze the data. The data for this study was archival Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) self-report data from students at a large suburban community college in Florida. Predictor variables included participation in extended orientation programs and student success courses, participation with classmates inside and out of class on ...

The Predictive Relationship Between Specific Teacher Characteristics And The Perceived Sense Of Teacher Self-Efficacy Of Non-Native English Speaking Teachers Of English As A Foreign Language In Rural Thailand, Cheri Crook

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

The goal of this quantitative, predictive correlational study is to investigate an often overlooked area of research, teacher self-efficacy among nonnative English-speaking teachers (NNESTs) who teach English as a Foreign Language (EFL). This study examines the relationship between specific teacher characteristics and perceived teacher self-efficacy among NNESTs of EFL in rural Thailand. The convenience sample in this study includes first through twelfth grade public sector NNESTs of EFL in Nan, Thailand, and represents the larger population of Northern Thai NNESTs of EFL. Data were collected from the sample via a combined Thai-language version of the paper-based Teachers’ Sense of Efficacy ...


Using Social Media To Build Your Sotl Research And Profile: The “What” “Why” And “How”, Josephine M. Csete Dr 2016 The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

Using Social Media To Build Your Sotl Research And Profile: The “What” “Why” And “How”, Josephine M. Csete Dr

SoTL Commons Conference

Technology has caused huge changes in how academic work is accessed and measured. The advent of social media has also changed the way academic works are found and discussed.

This session will present a range of popular social media tools and foster discussion on how various tools may be useful for SoTL, as well as for wider research purposes. Throughout the session participants will first be exposed to a number of multi-functional tools and then, through discussion, be encouraged to consider which of these might be most applicable to their own practices and interests. In addition, alternative metrics (which often ...


Measuring College Learning, Lendol Calder 2016 Augustana College

Measuring College Learning, Lendol Calder

SoTL Commons Conference

What are college students learning? Informed by SoTL, instructors can use a variety of assessment techniques to answer this question. But as questions about learning move into governance and policy circles, challenges of scale, expense, and public intelligibility make academic leaders chiefly open to the idea of standardized assessment. While faculty tend to view standardized assessment tools with distaste, college professors will not turn back the tide of demands for accountability armed only with brooms. A better response to the coming of standardized assessment would view the design of such tools as an intellectual problem to be tackled with the ...


Empathy In Experiential Learning: Universal Design Problem Solving, Lilia Gomez-Lanier Dr. 2016 University of Georgia

Empathy In Experiential Learning: Universal Design Problem Solving, Lilia Gomez-Lanier Dr.

SoTL Commons Conference

Interior designers as designers of the built environment are tasked with improving the overall lives of their clients, specifically safety, health and welfare of clients. Certain design projects may feature older or disabled individuals, but the focus in those situations tends to be on special needs rather than lifestyles and aspirations. Using the concept of universal design problem solving this qualitative research study explores the role that empathy may have on the experiential learning of interior design students in a residential design studio. Specifically, empathy's role on the knowledge, action and reflection components of experiential learning. Research participants as ...


Giving Voice To Sotl, Trent W. Maurer 2016 Georgia Southern University

Giving Voice To Sotl, Trent W. Maurer

SoTL Commons Conference

SoTL scholars know well the value of SoTL–to student learning, to faculty teaching, to institutions specifically, and to higher education generally. However, outside the small circle of SoTL scholars, it seems that attitudes toward SoTL range from obliviousness to hostility. As educators, it would seem to be an easy task to “educate” others about SoTL, yet these efforts have met with limited success for decades. For SoTL to survive, we must move beyond attempts to educate others about its value; we must advocate for SoTL, vigorously and unapologetically. We must give voice to SoTL, to tell its story and ...
