Tempered Experience: The Educational Foundation Of Democratic Ideology, Nicholas J. Schwarm 2017 St. John Fisher College

Tempered Experience: The Educational Foundation Of Democratic Ideology, Nicholas J. Schwarm

The Review: A Journal of Undergraduate Student Research

Democracy is a political ideology, one that requires a person to believe in that ideology for it to exist. The contemporary political landscape is dominated by democracies, and for this reason we need to understand how to build and sustain them. There needs to be a well-educated populace of citizens, who are able to engage in democratic actions, and aid the community. What they need is tempered experience, experience that is understood though the knowledge that a citizen already has.


A Progressive Approach To The Education Of Teachers: Some Principles From Bank Street College Of Education, Nancy Nager, Edna Shapiro 2017 Bank Streeet College of Education

A Progressive Approach To The Education Of Teachers: Some Principles From Bank Street College Of Education, Nancy Nager, Edna Shapiro

Occasional Paper Series

In this paper we present Bank Street’s approach as represented in a set of five inter-related principles. We begin by briefly describing the origins and rationale of teacher education at Bank Street. From this description we generate principles that emerge from Bank Street’s history and practice, linking each principle to classroom images of teaching and learning. Enactment of these principles can and must vary in response to changing circumstances, needs, and mandates. In our view, this necessary variation highlights the guiding function of an explicit set of principles to govern and ensure the consonance, validity, and legitimacy of ...


An Evaluation Of The Relationships Between Collegiate Aviation Safety Management System Initiative,Self-Efficacy,Transformational Safety Leadership And Safety Behavior Mediated By Safety Motivation, Daniel Kwasi Adjekum 2017 University of North Dakota

An Evaluation Of The Relationships Between Collegiate Aviation Safety Management System Initiative,Self-Efficacy,Transformational Safety Leadership And Safety Behavior Mediated By Safety Motivation, Daniel Kwasi Adjekum

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

The study conceptualized Safety Management System (SMS) initiative, self-efficacy, and transformational safety leadership as constructs that relates to safety behavior (measured by safety compliance and safety participation) when mediated by safety motivation using a quantitative approach. Structural equation modeling techniques was used to derive a final measurement model that fit the empirical data and was used to test the study hypotheses. Utilizing a sample of 282 collegiate flight students and instructors from a large public university in the US, a 46-item survey was used to measure respondent’s perceptions on the study variables. The results indicate that perceptions of SMS ...


Social Justice Driven Stem Learning (Stemj): A Curricular Framework For Teaching Stem In A Social Justice Driven, Urban, College Access Program., Paul E. Madden, Catherine Wong, Anne C. Vera Cruz, Chad Olle, Mike Barnett 2017 Boston College

Social Justice Driven Stem Learning (Stemj): A Curricular Framework For Teaching Stem In A Social Justice Driven, Urban, College Access Program., Paul E. Madden, Catherine Wong, Anne C. Vera Cruz, Chad Olle, Mike Barnett

Catalyst: A Social Justice Forum

This article presents the curricular framework for a social justice driven STEM curriculum (i.e., STEMJ) within an out-of-school time program for Boston Public high school students (i.e., College Bound) at Boston College. Starting with a discussion of the authors’ ideological positionality within critical social justice discourses, the authors share how Bronfenbrenner’s (1994) General Ecological Model provides a conceptual framework for operationalizing social justice inquiry with and through STEM. Positioning this curriculum within the College Bound program’s overall design gives readers a sense of how the program’s College and Career, Identity and Society, and ...


"A Narrower Than Necessary Focus": Jason Ellis And Benjamin Kearl On Special Education History: A Multilogue Response To Benjamin Kelsey Kearl And Jason Ellis, Donald Warren 2017 Indiana University - Bloomington

"A Narrower Than Necessary Focus": Jason Ellis And Benjamin Kearl On Special Education History: A Multilogue Response To Benjamin Kelsey Kearl And Jason Ellis, Donald Warren

Education's Histories

Donald Warren reads Benjamin Kearl's examination of special education history as an advance on the reconceptualization project,not a distraction from the historiographical work Ellis recommends.


Institutionalizing An “Ethic Of Care” Into The Teaching Of Ethics For Pre-Service Teachers, Michelle Hawks, Thashika Pillay 2017 University of Alberta

Institutionalizing An “Ethic Of Care” Into The Teaching Of Ethics For Pre-Service Teachers, Michelle Hawks, Thashika Pillay

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

This paper calls for the acknowledgement and institutionalization of an ethic of care into the education of decision-making processes for pre-service teachers. The impetus for this paper came from the author's experiences with teaching a mandatory ethics and law course for pre-service teachers. Over the course of their teaching and as expounded upon in this paper, the authors illustrate how the course goals, aims, objectives and readings ignore discussions on gender in the teaching profession. Using a critical feminist policy analysis, the authors analyse the ethical perspectives taught in the required textbooks. Findings suggest that the absence of the ...


On Nationalism, Pluralism, And Educators Actively Questioning Our Identities, Shoshana Gottesman 2017 Heartbeat / The YMCA Jerusalem Youth Chorus

On Nationalism, Pluralism, And Educators Actively Questioning Our Identities, Shoshana Gottesman

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

This practitioner reflection focuses on the challenges and possibilities of encounter dialogue-music education organizations in Israel/Palestine using musicking (Small, 1995) and dialogical programming to examine, question, and reflect upon the purpose and role of Israeli and Palestinian national days, markers which build individual and collective identity in irreconcilable dissonance with each other. By entering this vulnerable space, we as educators are not exempt from the internal and critical search for understanding of self and community while educational planning and teaching. By exploring “the heart of the educational mission” (Palmer, 2010, p.50) at its foundations of “how do we ...

I Like It, But Is It Good? Identifying Quality Writing, Peggy J. Lindsey, Jinrong Li 2017 Georgia Southern University

I Like It, But Is It Good? Identifying Quality Writing, Peggy J. Lindsey, Jinrong Li

SoTL Commons Conference

Even when faculty clarify evaluation criteria through the use of rubrics, students often interpret and apply the criteria differently from faculty (Li and Lindsey, 2015). This can be particularly true for writing assignments. This presentation explores a new methodology for improving student understanding of quality writing across disciplines and genres. It describes initial findings of a mixed-method research study designed to test the efficacy of key word rubrics – rubrics that consist solely of essential descriptive terms rather than detailed criteria. The presenters will share preliminary data on the effectiveness of this methodology and its potential for application across disciplines.


Investigating Students’ Engagement In Process Writing: A Mixed Method Approach, Xiaomei Song, Chen Chen Dr. 2017 Georgia Southern University

Investigating Students’ Engagement In Process Writing: A Mixed Method Approach, Xiaomei Song, Chen Chen Dr.

SoTL Commons Conference

Since the 1980s, writing pedagogy has expanded from solely teaching students to concentrate on their written products to writing processes. Writing has been perceived as a recursive process during which writers have the opportunity to plan, draft, revise, and edit their work. Using a mixed method triangulation design, this study examined students’ use of various components of process writing and its impact on students’ writing and learning across the academic term. The study provides important implications by identifying students’ strengths and weaknesses in writing process, documenting the changes of their engagement in process writing, and providing directions for future teaching.


Pinning Down Constructive Alignment Of Conceptual Inventiveness In Visual Arts, Jonathan K. Fisher, Diana Gregory Dr. 2017 Kennesaw State University

Pinning Down Constructive Alignment Of Conceptual Inventiveness In Visual Arts, Jonathan K. Fisher, Diana Gregory Dr.

SoTL Commons Conference

Biggs & Tang (2007) posit a well-aligned curriculum helps students to construct learning more effectively and independently. During the Self-Study process for reaccreditation, university faculty focused on intended learning outcomes (ILO) in the Bachelor of Fine Art (BFA) and Bachelor of Science in Art Education (BS Art Ed) degrees in visual art. This presentation presents a SoTL application as faculty developed horizontal and vertical “constructive alignment” (Angelo, 2013) for six foundations courses leading to portfolio review. A specific example is ART 2990: Concepts, Creativity and Studio Practice, designed as a result of external feedback indicating student work lacked conceptual inventiveness.


Using A Strategy Project To Promote Self-Regulated Learning, Hillary H. Steiner 2017 Kennesaw State University

Using A Strategy Project To Promote Self-Regulated Learning, Hillary H. Steiner

SoTL Commons Conference

Success in college requires the development of self-regulated learning strategies that move beyond high school skills, but teaching these strategies can be challenging. In this presentation, participants will learn about an instructional method that requires students to practice self-regulated learning strategies--active reading, management of study time and achievement goals, proactive interaction with faculty, metacognitive reflection, and more—within the context of a student-selected course. The presenter will share data from two years of research on the assignment’s efficacy and engage participants in discussion about the potential applications of self-regulated learning in their own classrooms.


A Grounded Theory Approach To Introductory Literature Program Assessment, Angela Zito 2017 University of Wisconsin-Madison

A Grounded Theory Approach To Introductory Literature Program Assessment, Angela Zito

SoTL Commons Conference

College and university instructors across disciplines are well aware of the pedagogical challenges particular to introductory-level courses. What might be less frequently discussed, though, and yet more complex and increasingly pressing, are the ramifications of these complex pedagogical questions in the design and implementation of program assessment. This research in progress takes a grounded theory approach to assessment of introductory literature courses (ILCs) at a large public university with the view of designing program assessment (to be implemented 2017-18) that accounts for the learning goals and teaching practices of ILCs alongside those more firmly rooted in the English major.


Should Projects Be More Creative By Being On A Team?, lilia gomez-lanier Dr. 2017 University of Georgia

Should Projects Be More Creative By Being On A Team?, Lilia Gomez-Lanier Dr.

SoTL Commons Conference

Today's workplace dominance of creative collaborative environments highlights the importance of understanding whether students in project based learning environments are more likely to gain in creative flexibility when working in student teams compared to when working alone. Furthermore, does a specific team size enhance creativity by encouraging students to generate a wider variety of ideas? Other than creativity, are life skills such as communication, time management, and critical analysis, enhanced by working in student teams compared to working alone? This research explores creativity in student teams versus students working alone in interior design, fashion merchandising and environmental tourism.
