A Universal Design For Robotics Education, Mustafa Şahin Bülbül

Txoj Kev Ntshiab: Hmong American Undergraduates’ Perceptions Of Intellectual Phoniness And Psychosociocultural Persistence Decisions, Jenjee T. Sengkhammee, Pa Her, Alberta M. Gloria, Mariko M. Lin, Betty Jo Thao, Desiree Cabinte, Linda Aroonsavath

Journal of Southeast Asian American Education and Advancement

Examining the educational experiences of 103 Hmong American undergraduates, gender and class standing differences emerged using a psychosociocultural approach. Females reported increased perceptions of family and friend support and greater cultural congruity in the university environment than males. Lower-division students indicated greater perceptions of social support from family, greater cultural congruity, and lower self-esteem than upper-division students. Feelings of phoniness emerged as the most significant negative predictor of academic persistence decisions. Implications, limitations, and future research are discussed.

“Science Is Not My Thing”: Exploring Deaf Non-Science Majors’ Science Identities, Cara L. Gormally, Amber Marchut 2017 Gallaudet University

“Science Is Not My Thing”: Exploring Deaf Non-Science Majors’ Science Identities, Cara L. Gormally, Amber Marchut

Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities

Students who are deaf and hard-of-hearing are underrepresented in science majors, yet we know little about why. Students from other underrepresented groups in science—women and people of color—tend to highly value altruistic or communal career goals, while perceiving science as uncommunal. Research suggests that holding stereotypical conceptions about scientists and perceptions of science as uncommunal may strongly hinder recruitment into science majors. This study sought to explore the science identities of students who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing signers. The study focused on non-science majors in bilingual (American Sign Language and written English) biology laboratory courses. This study ...

“My Voice Is Definitely Strongest In Online Communities”: Students Using Social Media For Queer And Disability Identity-Making, Ryan A. Miller

Ryan A. Miller, Ph.D.

A qualitative study explored the social media activities of 25 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students with disabilities at a research-intensive university. Using a framework of identity-making that accounts for students’ reflections, narrations, and actions, this paper details students’ experiences exploring queer/disability identities through social networking sites, smartphone applications, and blogs. Students described going online to find validation, become involved, and manage identities contextually. However, students also described experiencing marginalization online and feeling isolated, suggesting implications for higher education, including the need to critically evaluate students’ online engagement.

Eliminating Social Homelessness: Providing A Home To Grow, Kevin Duquette, Patrick Akos, Rydell Harrison

Middle Grades Review

Middle school students who belong to marginalized identity groups often experience alienation and isolation. These feelings are compounded for multi-marginalized students who experience social homelessness–a term Harrison (2015) uses to describe students who appear to be accepted in one or more social categories but, because of his or her competing identities, is unable to fully participate in the life of the social group without hiding a part of his or her identity. In addition to this internalized struggle, emerging research indicates that socially homeless students are at an increased risk for bullying and academic failure. Inspired by the need ...

Flipping The Counseling Classroom To Enhance Application-Based Learning Activities, Clare Merlin 2016 University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Flipping The Counseling Classroom To Enhance Application-Based Learning Activities, Clare Merlin

The Journal of Counselor Preparation and Supervision

Flipped learning is an instructional approach that employs asynchronous video lectures as homework and active, group-based activities in the classroom (Bishop, 2013). During the past decade, this teaching approach has increased in popularity among K-12 teachers and higher education instructors. Though one model of flipped learning is traditionally described in the literature, several models exist and are detailed in this article. Flipped learning is particularly beneficial to counselor education as it can help increase available class time for practicing counseling skills, engaging in application-based activities, and participating in class discussions. Four specific CACREP core curricular areas are addressed: Helping Relationships ...
