Openness To A Paradigm Shift In Medical Education Assessment – A Case Study, Elina Tor Apr 2019

Openness To A Paradigm Shift In Medical Education Assessment – A Case Study, Elina Tor

Elina Tor

Background – In 2017 the School of Medicine Fremantle (SoMF) began moving towards a paradigm shift to optimise the learning and decision functions of assessments.
Methods – Consistent with best practice of first doing, then watching and thinking, a multi-year (2017 – 2020) action research project has been in place alongside the staged roll-out of programmatic assessment for learning (PA) framework in the SoMF since 2017. The aim of the action research is to authentically construct theories of action to account for ongoing reflection on experience.  The focus of this presentation is to use the SoMF context to further understanding of the nature ...


Online Versus Traditional End-Of-Life Care Education In Nursing: An Integrative Literature Review, Emily Wolff Mar 2019

Online Versus Traditional End-Of-Life Care Education In Nursing: An Integrative Literature Review, Emily Wolff

Grace Peterson Nursing Research Colloquium

Abstract

Background: Professional nurses spend more time with patients who are dying than any other health care professional. However, studies show that nurses feel unprepared, or unequipped, to provide adequate end-of-life (EOL) care to these patients, which has directed many organizations to dedicate resources to the development of effective EOL care education programs. The most effective and efficient method for EOL care education delivery is yet to be determined.

Objectives: The purpose of this integrative literature review is to examine the existing research regarding the efficacies of online and traditional EOL care education methods for professional nurses because the reported ...


Photo-Voice As A Reflexive Method, Nan Stevens Feb 2019

Photo-Voice As A Reflexive Method, Nan Stevens

Teaching Practices Colloquium

Photo-voice is rapidly becoming a popular and accepted research method in the social sciences (Holm, 2008). Developed by Wang and Burris (1994), Photo-voice is a participatory method through which research participants identify and represent their lived experiences and contexts through the use of photo imagery. Reavey and Johnson (2013) claim that visual methods “hand over agency to the participants (p. 302). Participants are provided cameras or electronic devices to document images that resonate for them (consciously or unconsciously). Participants then share verbal associations about the photos in order to communicate feelings, ideas, and information about personal and community relationships, issues ...


The Core Of Social Network Modeling: Industrial Engineering., Shannon C. Roberts, Chaitra Gopalappa, Nazanin Nazanin Jan 2019

The Core Of Social Network Modeling: Industrial Engineering., Shannon C. Roberts, Chaitra Gopalappa, Nazanin Nazanin

Science and Engineering Saturday Seminars

Networks are abound in our everyday lives, from disaster response networks to cellular networks to social networks. In this workshop, we will introduce the different types of networks and how Industrial Engineering is used to model these networks. Next, we will describe current social network modeling research done at UMass. Finally, we will delve into hands-on activities that include social network analysis, such as the clustering of people into groups, and modeling of the spread of ideas in a social network, such as how tweets spread on Twitter.

Sensory Integration In Saint Lucian Schools: A Case Study, Megan Lively Spt, Ashley Danielsen Spt, Leigha Schimmoeller Spt

Student Scholar Showcase

In January 2018, the Lynchburg College Doctor of Physical Therapy program sent a group of ten first- and second-year students to St. Lucia to provide therapy services to children in need across the island in five different special education schools. The group has been able to work hand-in-hand with the Ministry of Education in St. Lucia for the past three years in order to make a positive impact on the special education students and teachers. As the group did their evaluations this year, we noticed a trend that most of the students we worked presented with sensory integration dysfunctions and ...

Overall Wellness Of First Generation College Student-Athletes, Shane Warehime Mar 2018

Overall Wellness Of First Generation College Student-Athletes, Shane Warehime

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

The present study examined the overall wellness of first-generation student-athletes (FGSA) in comparison to non-first generation student-athletes (non-FGSA),first-generation college students (FGCS), and non-first generation college students (non-FGCS). Overall wellness was assessed using the Five-Factor WellnessInventory. Non-FGSA scored significantly higher than non-FGCS in overall wellness and life satisfaction. Non-FGSA and FGSA scored significantly higher than non-FGCS and FGCS in the physical self subscale (i.e., diet, exercise). In sum, athletics may play an important role in the wellness of student-athletes, which could be enough to mitigate any challenges that first-generation college students face.

A Comparative Analysis Of The Mexican Vs. Mexican-American Diet And Rates Of Obesity Through Two Case Studies, Nick White May 2017

A Comparative Analysis Of The Mexican Vs. Mexican-American Diet And Rates Of Obesity Through Two Case Studies, Nick White

Undergraduate Research Day

In this research paper I analyze and compare the diet of the inhabitants of a rural village in Yucatan, Mexico with the diet of Mexican-Americans living in Laramie, WY in order to discern the reasons behind the increasing trends in obesity among these particular populations. This project is based on data collected through interviews with volunteer participants from among the target audiences. Data on nutrition and obesity among Yucatecan populations was previously collected during the summer study abroad course, “Maya Art & Culture”, taught by Dr. Mary Katherine Scott (2014). This data is compared with new data collected in Laramie, WY ...


Components Of A Proper Warm-Up For Active Adolescents, Caitlin Marcus May 2017

Components Of A Proper Warm-Up For Active Adolescents, Caitlin Marcus

Undergraduate Research Day

Through a previous project my goal was to research and understand cultural identity. Through that project I found I wanted to help as many people as I can and it became a goal to research the adolescent age group. The purpose of this project was to review existing literature and come to a conclusion about proper warm-up components and techniques in adolescent sports and physical activity that help lower the chance of injuries.

Bilingualism And The American Family, Caitlin M. Nickerson May 2017

Bilingualism And The American Family, Caitlin M. Nickerson

Senior Honors Projects

Bilingualism is the ability to speak more than one language fluently. People of all ages may aspire to learn a second or third language in order to fulfill both personal goals and communicate with a variety of people in different contexts. Irrespective of one’s walk of life or socioeconomic status, being bilingual is a valuable skill. Although English is the language of power in the United States, there are hundreds of other languages spoken in this country.

There are a number of different ways in which children can become bilingual. For example, they may enter the school system speaking ...

Family Paradigm Assessment Scale (F-Pas) Test-Retest Reliability, Madison L. Deutsch Ms. May 2015

Family Paradigm Assessment Scale (F-Pas) Test-Retest Reliability, Madison L. Deutsch Ms.

Undergraduate Research Day

Family-centered evidence-based practice (EBP) suggests tools for clinicians to better assist families in, research-driven solutions for decision making or and interventions. The Family Paradigm Assessment Scale (F-PAS)is one of the tools that can help a clinician understand how a family interacts in the world and operates on a day-to-day basis. Through additional research, increased reliability may be achieved by improving the F-PAS. Hence, a clinician may be able to provide more comprehensive services that for clients, which will improve the quality of intervention.

Family paradigm (Constantine, 1986; David R. Imig, 2005; Kantor & Lehr, 1975) describes four viewpoints (closed, random ...
