Technical Standards Literacy In Management Education, Heather A. Howard, Margaret Phillips Jul 2019

Technical Standards Literacy In Management Education, Heather A. Howard, Margaret Phillips

Midwest Business Librarian Summit (MBLS)

Industry standards have a significant impact on business as a means to eliminate waste, reduce costs, market products (e.g., for quality, safety, interoperability) and lessen liability (Thompson, 2011). Consequently, an understanding of and ability to use standards, agreed upon practices among interested or vested parties, is a critical workplace competency for those engaged in business and industry. To have a workforce competent in the use of standards, higher education curricula must be developed to integrate standards education at appropriate points within the curriculum. Despite the importance of standards, they are not universally integrated into the college and university curricula ...

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 ...

Motivating Formative Assessment Engagement For Flipped Instruction Content, Kurt Schmitz Jan 2019

Motivating Formative Assessment Engagement For Flipped Instruction Content, Kurt Schmitz

SoTL Commons Conference

Hybrid and Blended instructional approaches are increasingly being applied to University level curriculum. These techniques shift a significant burden for engaging course content to the students as an outside-the-classroom activity. This study of contrasting hybrid classrooms (two medium size and two large size) investigates the efficacy of completion scores in an open gradebook to motivate student engagement with formative assessments. Definitions are provided for hybrid instruction, and formative assessment to establish clear measures for data collection in this field experiment. A between-groups ANOVA analysis is presented with conclusions and recommendations.


Teacher Voices Activity .Pptx, Lynell Hodge Dec 2018

Teacher Voices Activity .Pptx, Lynell Hodge

Lynell Hodge, EdD

Educators are amongst a population at risk for exposure to secondary trauma because they have contact with young adults who may have or currently experiencing hardships such as mental health issues, relationship abuse, or financial insecurity. However, despite the vulnerability of educators to secondary trauma, little research has focused on this population or preventative techniques that might mitigate the effects of secondary trauma to educators. A faculty cohort was selected to identify levels of exposure and coping strategies used to navigate classroom and one and one interactions with students. In this presentation participants the results from this semester long faculty ...

Should We Think About The Scale When We Weigh The Pig?, Kathy E. Clarke, Gretchen A. Hazard Oct 2017

Should We Think About The Scale When We Weigh The Pig?, Kathy E. Clarke, Gretchen A. Hazard

Libraries

To make a heavier pig, then it makes perfect sense to weigh it – twice – prior to feeding him and afterwards. But what if we more interested in the overall health of the pig, or, if our big is rounder post-food, or if our pig can make pig-fattening food choices? To answer those questions, assessors would need to consider a highly-attuned instrument or one that measures something different than the information a scale provides. In this presentation, we hope to engage participants to consider the how of assessment and in particular consider how we assess influences what we find out.

Using A Strategy Project To Promote Self-Regulated Learning, Hillary H. Steiner Mar 2017

Using A Strategy Project To Promote Self-Regulated Learning, Hillary H. Steiner

SoTL Commons Conference

Success in college requires the development of self-regulated learning strategies that move beyond high school skills, but teaching these strategies can be challenging. In this presentation, participants will learn about an instructional method that requires students to practice self-regulated learning strategies--active reading, management of study time and achievement goals, proactive interaction with faculty, metacognitive reflection, and more—within the context of a student-selected course. The presenter will share data from two years of research on the assignment’s efficacy and engage participants in discussion about the potential applications of self-regulated learning in their own classrooms.


Preparing Students To Leave The Academic Nest: Using Creative Inquiry To Develop Fledglings, Nikki Panter, Jennifer Meadows Mar 2017

Preparing Students To Leave The Academic Nest: Using Creative Inquiry To Develop Fledglings, Nikki Panter, Jennifer Meadows

SoTL Commons Conference

In a required communication course for all biology majors at Tennessee Technological University, the focus has traditionally been on professional development and career readiness. On the surface, the previous course structure prepared students to enter the job market. However, on closer review, many students struggled with independent thinking and speaking. Following course redesign using inquiry-guided learning models and student surveys, alternative assignments based on students’ abilities and goals were introduced. Using interdisciplinary teams to competitively debate an open-ended question, students received opportunities to improve leadership, teamwork, and communication skills, i.e., to fledge from the academic nest to the job ...


Blending Pedagogical Approaches In Public Health Education: The A.D.O.P.T. Model, Mckinley Thomas, Sara S. Plaspohl Mar 2017

Blending Pedagogical Approaches In Public Health Education: The A.D.O.P.T. Model, Mckinley Thomas, Sara S. Plaspohl

SoTL Commons Conference

The success of a public health workforce hinges upon the efficacy of educational experiences offered within higher education. To enhance learning the authors developed a multimodal pedagogical approach designed to support public health education: A.D.O.P.T. The model is supported by five modalities offered during each session: Activity, Discussion, Objectives, Presentation, and Transition. We believe this model will enhance the learning environment in public health, yielding informed, analytical, and well-prepared students equipped to address the needs of a diverse population.


Assessing Astronomy Students’ Views About The Nature Of Science, Jennifer Blue Mar 2017

Assessing Astronomy Students’ Views About The Nature Of Science, Jennifer Blue

SoTL Commons Conference

For this project, I analyze papers and essays from students in a general education course, Observational Foundations of Astronomy. Students were asked to construct arguments about whether ancient astronomers, who in many cases were also astrologers and priests, were scientists. I will present the results, with student definitions and examples. This should have implications for how we talk about science with our students across the curriculum.


Practice. Practice. Practice. Do Homework Management Systems Work?, Kathy K. Archer, Mark Olson Mar 2017

Practice. Practice. Practice. Do Homework Management Systems Work?, Kathy K. Archer, Mark Olson

SoTL Commons Conference

Do online homework management systems improve student learning? Do they work as well for adult learners in an online course? This natural experiment divided a sample of 2500 online students in an entry level university economics course into three treatment groups to look at the relationship between homework support and quiz scores. Group A got no homework support. Group B got simple Microsoft Excel templates. Group C got an online homework management system. Join us for this interactive session where we’ll discuss our findings and collect your ideas on how these findings might translate into practice.


Vicarious Trauma The Unseen Burden.Pptx, Lynell Hodge Dec 2016

Vicarious Trauma The Unseen Burden.Pptx, Lynell Hodge

Lynell Hodge, EdD

What is vicarious trauma?  Vicarious trauma is a response to the continued exposure to secondary traumatic content (Figely, 2002). The difference between burnout or compassion fatigue is they can be addressed with time off or rest; however, vicarious trauma needs to be handled through coping skills and stress management.  If not addressed, vicarious trauma can have adverse impacts to a person’s cognition, self-perception, and empathetic engagement (McCann & Pearlman, 1990). Additionally, vicarious negatively impacts job satisfaction. The results of the study found for every increase in vicarious trauma, there was a decrease in job satisfaction. Vicarious trauma thus provides a ...

In this session, participants will gain a deeper understanding of how to use Bloom’s Taxonomy to write learning objectives that create formative and measurable outcomes, when working with a qualified Subject Matter Expert. Participants will learn the “do’s” and “don’ts” of writing assessments, types of assessment questions to use, and how to format those questions to meet the course’s learning objectives.


Cutting Time, Not Corners: Rapid Prototyping In Instructional Design, Joelle Pitts Aug 2016

Cutting Time, Not Corners: Rapid Prototyping In Instructional Design, Joelle Pitts

SIDLIT Conference

Trends in digital teaching and learning combined with the learning preferences of college students result in an ever-increasing need for digital learning objects and experiences. Time, budget, and environmental restraints compound instructional design challenges, resulting in too many projects spread over too few staff members. Rapid Prototyping (RP) is an iterative design process originating from the software engineering sector. Adapted to instructional design, RP allows academics to facilitate the design, development, and assessment of multiple learning objects to maximize resources, while catching problems early in the development stage. Discussion will center on how RP can overcome common instructional design problems ...


Retention Effects Of An Experiential Pedagogical Approach, Kelsea E. Adams May 2016

Retention Effects Of An Experiential Pedagogical Approach, Kelsea E. Adams

Senior Honors Projects

The quality and nature of delivery of education, especially at the K12 level is a major focus of the education reform movement. As an aspiring teacher, I am interested in developing a personal understanding of the efficacy of different modes of delivery. A large body of studies has examined the differences between experiential learning versus traditional classroom learning as well as effects on student retention. Traditional classroom learning involves literary texts, PowerPoint presentations and teacher-centered learning. In contrast, experiential learning is a hands-on, real world experience that provides students with an environment to expand their critical thinking skills and apply ...

The program was designed to be fifteen minutes in length, allowing for more sessions over the course of 3 hours with one session a week alternating between topics. Upon survey evaluation of the 60 participants, they reported satisfaction with the overall program and validated the worth of EmblemHealth’s Fitness Center. The survey also showed that 10 out of 10 participants recognized sitting disease as a primary health concern after the ...


Scholarship Policies And Attitudes At Council For Christian Colleges And Universities (Cccu), Craighton Hippenhammer Apr 2016

Scholarship Policies And Attitudes At Council For Christian Colleges And Universities (Cccu), Craighton Hippenhammer

Scholar Week 2016 - present

Ernest Boyer's research in the early 1990's has had a large impact since on how many schools of higher education define and conduct scholarship. Some research universities have broadened their requirements beyond publish or perish and universities who emphasize teaching over publishing have reported activities to broaden theirsl. This research project surveys the scholarship policies and attitudes of schools within the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU), contrasting the views of library directors and academic deans. Supported by a grant from CARLI (Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois).


Measuring College Learning, Lendol Calder Mar 2016

Measuring College Learning, Lendol Calder

SoTL Commons Conference

What are college students learning? Informed by SoTL, instructors can use a variety of assessment techniques to answer this question. But as questions about learning move into governance and policy circles, challenges of scale, expense, and public intelligibility make academic leaders chiefly open to the idea of standardized assessment. While faculty tend to view standardized assessment tools with distaste, college professors will not turn back the tide of demands for accountability armed only with brooms. A better response to the coming of standardized assessment would view the design of such tools as an intellectual problem to be tackled with the ...
