Christian Academic Motherhood In Secular Higher Education: The Experiences Of One Evangelical Christian, Christy M. Craft, Jo Maseberg-Tomlinson 2015 Kansas State University

Christian Academic Motherhood In Secular Higher Education: The Experiences Of One Evangelical Christian, Christy M. Craft, Jo Maseberg-Tomlinson

Christy Moran Craft

Although some scholars have highlighted the challenges faced by academic mothers in secular higher education and others have investigated those of Christian academic mothers in Christian higher education, none have looked at the experiences of Christian academic mothers in secular higher education. This autoethnographic study was conducted to analyze and to interpret one evangelical Christian’s experiences as a new academic mother at a secular university. The results of this study suggest that religious academic mothers working in secular higher education might benefit from drawing on religious-based strategies for dealing with the unique challenges that they face in their pursuit ...

The Personal Is Political: Fostering A Culture Of Student Political Engagement, Demetri L. Morgan, Cecilia M. Orphan

Demetri L. Morgan

The mission statements of many institutions describe commitments to larger democratic purposes, including fostering student political engagement. Hundreds of campuses have sought to reclaim this mission over the past two decades. However, at issue is whether higher education is truly committed to this ideal moving forward; and if so, how to best to realize the ideal. Presenters will help attendees consider the ways to help foster a culture of student political engagement, based on findings from the study, A Crucible Moment: College Learning and Democracy (2012).

Preventive Counseling Without Borders: Using Mobile Devices For Teaching, Training, And Wellness Promotion, Maxine L. Rawlins, Elizabeth Hughes

Counselor Education Faculty Publications

Despite documented benefits regarding the utilization of technology in counseling, it has been underutilized by school, mental health, and student affairs counselors. Even less information has been available regarding the professional use of mobile devices by counselors in this area. This interactive presentation examines the utilization of iPads in Preventive Counseling for instruction, training, social marketing, and wellness promotion. This practice-focused workshop reflects the presenters’ yearlong exploration of the iPad and selected apps for use in teaching, training, and wellness promotion. The workshop revisits the evidence-based Indivisible Self Wellness Model (Myers and Sweeney, 2004) and uses it as the conceptual ...

Challenges Experienced By One Academic Mother Transitioning From Maternity Leave Back To Academia, Christy M. Craft, Jo Maseberg-Tomlinson 2015 Kansas State University

Challenges Experienced By One Academic Mother Transitioning From Maternity Leave Back To Academia, Christy M. Craft, Jo Maseberg-Tomlinson

Christy Moran Craft

While many scholars have written about the experience of academic motherhood in higher education, with their research revealing a number of challenges faced by academic mothers, none have presented an in-depth view of the transition of returning to work after maternity leave. For this reason, the authors used a narrative inquiry approach to analyze and interpret the first author’s thoughts, feelings, and experiences as she transitioned from maternity leave to full-time academic work as a tenured, associate professor of education at a research university. During that transition, she faced challenges related to the prioritization and fulfillment of her academic ...

A Grounded Theory Study Explaining How Female Doctoral Candidates Negotiate Their Identities As Mothers And Scholars And Persist Unto Degree Completion, Amanda J. Rockinson-Szapkiw, Lucinda S. Spaulding

Lucinda S. Spaulding

The purpose of this grounded theory study was to generate a model that explains how female doctoral candidates manage and negotiate the tensions relating to their roles and identities as females, mothers, and academics within the social structure of academia. Data was collected via a questionnaire, life map, and semi-structured interview from 11 doctoral candidates enrolled in a nationally accredited Doctor of Education (EdD) program in the southeastern United States. The theoretical model produced from this study depicts the development and relationship among EdD students’ identities as females, professionals, and academics and how the roles and responsibilities related to these ...


A Conversation On The Need For Women To Successfully Manage Their Multiple Identity Dimensions In Order To Persist In The Doctoral Process, Lucinda S. Spaulding, Amanda J. Rockinson-Szapkiw, Maria T. Spaulding 2015 Liberty University

A Conversation On The Need For Women To Successfully Manage Their Multiple Identity Dimensions In Order To Persist In The Doctoral Process, Lucinda S. Spaulding, Amanda J. Rockinson-Szapkiw, Maria T. Spaulding

Lucinda S. Spaulding

This conversation focuses on challenges specific to female doctoral students given their multiple dimensions of identity (e.g., wife, mother, daughter, professional, emerging scholar) and the tensions they experience as they intersect these dimensions across the varied stages of the doctoral journey. This discussion is prompted by research indicating many women fail to successfully negotiate these tensions and consequently choose not to begin or cease to persist in a doctoral program. In this session we discuss (a) tensions women face in the doctoral process, (b) a theoretical foundation for female identity, and (c) strategies for successfully intersecting multiple identity dimensions ...

Counseling Emerging Adults In Transition: Practical Applications Of Attachment And Social Support Research, Joel A. Lane 2015 Portland State University

Counseling Emerging Adults In Transition: Practical Applications Of Attachment And Social Support Research, Joel A. Lane

Counselor Education Faculty Publications and Presentations

Today’s emerging adults (i.e., individuals between the ages of 18 and 29 in industrialized nations) navigate multiple significant life transitions (e.g., entering career life), and do so in a rapidly changing society. While these transitions pose psychological difficulties, a growing body of research has identified attachment and social support as two notably salient protective factors in emerging adulthood. The purpose of the present paper is to inform counseling work with emerging adult clients, particularly those in the midst of one or more transitions. This purpose is important given that the concept of emerging adulthood represents a relatively ...

The Impact Of Social Capital On The Access, Adjustment, And Success Of Southeast Asian American College Students., Robert T. Palmer, Phd, Dina C. Maramba, Phd

Robert T. Palmer, PhD

Given that Southeast Asian American (SEAA) students are severely underrepresented in higher education and less likely to persistence to graduation compared to other ethnic groups in the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, this study explored critical factors to their college success. Indeed, several themes emerged from this national sample of 34 participants from five public, four year colleges and universities. In this present article, we discuss one of the salient themes—the role of social capital as facilitators of college access and success. This article concludes with implications for research and practice.


Office Hours As Teachable Moments: Structuring Student-Instructor Interactions Outside The Classroom, Michelle D. Majeed 2014 University of Toronto

Office Hours As Teachable Moments: Structuring Student-Instructor Interactions Outside The Classroom, Michelle D. Majeed

Teaching Innovation Projects

Students and instructors often approach office hours with an equal lack of enthusiasm. For students, office hours can be inaccessible due to scheduling conflicts or feelings of intimidation when approaching their instructor. For instructors, many report that students do not show up and when they do the visits are brief and linked to assessments. Despite this ambivalence, this workshop argues that office hours are an untapped and significant pedagogical tool to support student-faculty interactions and improve student outcomes.

Substantial research highlights the benefits of student-faculty interaction outside the classroom. In the literature, office hours are the predominant form of communication ...
