Teaching Observations And Faculty Development To Integrate Teaching Practice And Assessment Of Student Learning Outcomes, Sharon Mcguire, Vicki Stieha Feb 2105

Teaching Observations And Faculty Development To Integrate Teaching Practice And Assessment Of Student Learning Outcomes, Sharon Mcguire, Vicki Stieha

Vicki Stieha

This study explored the relationship between the implementation of evidence-based instructional practices (EBIPs) and student learning outcomes. Reformed Teaching Observation Protocol (RTOP) results, instructor interviews, and learning assessment data from over 50 STEM general education faculty members initially showed a disconnection between the integration of EBIPs, assessment, and outcomes. These results informed faculty development programming which successfully supported faculty to integrate their teaching practice, student learning outcomes and assessment. Participants will review study results, experience faculty development activities, including use of the RTOP and the creation of assessment activities, and consider how these approaches might be used at their home ...

Video Games In Education, Matthew C. Heins

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

The purpose of this paper is to review relevant literature that explored the impact of video games within the field of education. Through a review of studies on video games in education, between 2000 and 2015, I aim to discuss that video games do have educational value in multiple content areas k-12, and educators have effectively implemented video games consistently through the same approaches. In addition, I discuss that there are existing limitations within schools due to educators and a lack of adequate technology available to support the implementation of video games into education. My analysis of the current literature ...

The Impact Of Teacher-Lead Professional Development Programs On The Self-Efficacy Of Veteran Teachers, Seth Powers, Theodore Kaniuka, Brian Phillips, Beverlyn Cain Dec 2016

The Impact Of Teacher-Lead Professional Development Programs On The Self-Efficacy Of Veteran Teachers, Seth Powers, Theodore Kaniuka, Brian Phillips, Beverlyn Cain

Journal of Research Initiatives

This study examined the impact of a teacher-lead professional development program based on the Instructional Talk-Through (ITT) model, created to address the unique needs of high-performing veteran teachers. Focusing on the professional development of veteran teachers is not a regular occurrence in schools and it is our opinion that these teachers possess a wealth of knowledge that heretofore has not been utilized to improve their overall skill set. The program was designed to capitalize on peer coaching, professional learning communities, classroom observation, and experiential knowledge while incorporating the unique strengths and abilities of these teachers in a collaborative environment.

Students displayed an increase in vocabulary retention and participation. Because of the students’ increase in retention and participation during whole group instruction, we will continue to use close reading passages in our classrooms.

The Question Of Digital Game Based Learning: An Investigation Into The Potential Promises And Perils Of Education's Golden Goose, Molly E. O'Riley Dec 2016

The Question Of Digital Game Based Learning: An Investigation Into The Potential Promises And Perils Of Education's Golden Goose, Molly E. O'Riley

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

This paper seeks to explore the recent research around digital game based learning (DGBL) and the K-12 classroom. Through an analytical review of the literature, this paper explores relationships between extant professional literature and empirical research, as well as examining common themes found through the exploration. There seems to be a dearth between the anecdotal literature advocating the use of DGBL in the classroom and empirical research to support its actual effect. This study looks at four different research articles written between 2010 and 2015 in order to find out if there is empirical evidence that supports the use of ...


The Political, Economic And Societal Challenges Encountered By Public School Systems In Developing Countries, Priyadarshani Joshi Nov 2016

The Political, Economic And Societal Challenges Encountered By Public School Systems In Developing Countries, Priyadarshani Joshi

Priyadarshani Joshi

The paper analyzes the challenges and supports that mediate public schools’ ability to initiate reforms and productively respond to competition from private schools. An understanding of impediments can help policymakers better target their attention to the key bottlenecks and the most disadvantaged populations. I conduct a two-step mixed methods analysis. I first conduct qualitative analysis of interview data and descriptive statistics of principal perceptions to describe the barriers to reform that generally affect public schools more frequently than private schools. Then, I analyze whether the barriers (and supports) to reform can be systematically linked to the extent of privatization by ...
