Teen Dating Violence, Janessa Rivera

Violence Against Women conference

Teen Dating Violence (TDV) is a topic rapidly increasing in the lives of our youth, however it is not discussed in the schools or in the community.

This presentation raises awareness of the term “dating violence” and highlights the impact of TDV in the Latino community in an interactive format that includes open discussion of cultural norms and appropriation in the Latino community, which can enable TDV.

Infusing Undergraduate Scholarship Into Teacher Education, Tunde Szecsi, Hasan Aydin Oct 2018

Infusing Undergraduate Scholarship Into Teacher Education, Tunde Szecsi, Hasan Aydin

Florida Statewide Symposium: Best Practices in Undergraduate Research

Students majoring in education are underrepresented in undergraduate scholarship. To enable teacher candidates to develop and demonstrate their skills in scholarly activities and products, we implemented a well-orchestrated infusion of problem-solving, critical thinking, oral and written communication, collaboration into courses.

In this presentation, we will describe this systematic course-based infusion of scholarly endeavors with examples from courses. In addition, during the past three years, annually we assessed teacher candidates’ scholarly products for critical thinking, informational literacy and writing. Here we will share what we learned from the data, and how we used it to strengthen undergraduate scholarship for future teachers.

Fly This Sim! Basic Aircrew Training Device (Batd) Impact On Student Progression And Retention, Jordan Stephens

Undergraduate Research Symposium - Prescott

The researchers’ goal was to design a project implemented in Fall 2018 which studies the effect of using a Helicopter Basic Aircrew Training Device (BATD) on helicopter flight student progression and retention. Measuring the efficacy of the BATD will allow ERAU to determine the need for purchase of additional BATDs in the future. The design included the methodology and preparation of all of the materials required to undertake the Fall project. This included a student focus group design, student survey design, student progress tracker, BATD utilization tracker, data analysis plan, design and testing of the practical skills to be practiced ...


Study Abroad For Transformational Learning Opportunities To Build Cultural Intelligence, Nicholas Tran Oct 2018

Study Abroad For Transformational Learning Opportunities To Build Cultural Intelligence, Nicholas Tran

Undergraduate Research Symposium - Prescott

Recent research points to questions on the value for students studying abroad while in college. Our conceptual paper links the transformative learning theory to the three dimensions of cultural intelligence to highlight the value of study abroad to provide life-changing learning opportunities. Through disorienting dilemmas and a process of cultivating critical reflection, study abroad students will generate new meaning schemes, or “habits of the mind” to view the world. In addition to critical reflection, the role of emotions plays a critical role in the development of self-awareness. These transformational learning experiences interconnect with the three-dimensional model of cultural intelligence through ...

A Voice In The Wilderness, Jeffrey Marzluft

OER From Vision to Action

“A Voice in the Wilderness”

Whether you live on an actual island or just feel like it, starting and driving an OER program on your campus can feel like a lonely business. When Jeffrey Marzluft started at University of Hawaii - Maui College, most faculty had never heard of OER, let alone utilized them in their classes. Employing a variety of tools including the library’s positive brand, resources from local consortia & the open community, some grit, and a little good old-fashioned librarian knowhow - he raised adoption levels across campus bringing measured savings to students and initiating a cultural shift by ...

Infographics And Visual Literacy: Teaching Evaluative Criteria To Increase Critical Thinking, Dana S. Thompson Jun 2018

Infographics And Visual Literacy: Teaching Evaluative Criteria To Increase Critical Thinking, Dana S. Thompson

Dana Statton Thompson

Infographics, as one type of visual information, are becoming more and more prevalent online, especially on social media sites. Because of the prolific nature of these sites, and the fact that 86% of 18-29 year olds use at least one social media site (Pew Research Center, 2017), it’s important to know how well college students understand infographics. Exploring the findings of a pre- and post-questionnaire given to two journalism classes found that students do not independently evaluate infographics. However, by utilizing best practices when creating an infographic assignment, it is possible to teach students how to think critically about ...

How Early Learning Interventions Respond To Diverse International Contexts: A Scoping Review, Jen Jackson, Kashfee Ahmed, Toby Carslake

Jen Jackson

As the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) generate increasing interest in quality early childhood interventions, a challenge remains in identifying which programs achieve outcomes for children in diverse international contexts. This paper focuses on programs to support children's learning: one of the three components of holistic child development identified in the SDGs. The paper presents findings from a scoping review of recent research on interventions to support children's learning in economically developing countries. Building on Rao, Sun, Chen and Ip's 2017 systematic review of the effectiveness of such interventions, it explores in greater detail what can be ...

Opening Up: Why Are We Not Using More Open Educational Resources (Oer’S)?, Daniel A. Sabol

CSIS Technical Reports

Open Educational Resources (OER) have the ability to alleviate student drop out rate, make faculty course design easier, allow faculty to contribute and participate in the OER undertaking that is swiftly spreading through our nation. In addition we are able to save our students $2,000 - $3,000 dollars over the course of their education. This work looks at findings from a survey which was sent out to list serves and direct email to faculty. The survey posed questions to try to determine why faculty were having a difficult time accepting and using OER’s in their own classroom. It ...

Be Careful What You Wish For: Unintended Consequences Of Attaining Purpose, Amber Settle

Amber Settle

Since 2014 a linked-courses learning community has been offered for first-year students in selected majors in the School of Computing (SoC). The students selected for the community are from underrepresented populations in computing, and one of the purposes of the community is to build a sense of belonging among participants as this is connected to retention. In Fall 2017, unlike in previous cohorts, students in the community used social media to connect to each other very early in the quarter, producing a strong sense of community among students. The Fall 2017 programming course associated with the community also had an ...
