Critical Transitions In Faculty Learning: Helping Faculty Become Learning-Centered Teachers, Judith Longfield Nov 2014

Critical Transitions In Faculty Learning: Helping Faculty Become Learning-Centered Teachers, Judith Longfield

Judith Longfield

New methodologies of teaching and learning are changing the landscape of higher education. However, faculty are often unaware of the research and continue to rely heavily on lecture. During this interactive session, participants will learn how an extended series, known as the Teaching Academy, transformed instructors’ ideas about effective teaching and their classroom practices. In addition to learning about the impact of the Academy, participants will also consider ways to overcome barriers and implement this type of in-depth faculty development, which did not require additional funding, on their campuses.


Using Perceptual Maps For Career And College Counseling, Oscar T. Mcknight, Kerri Carmichael, Gregory Pollock Nov 2014

Using Perceptual Maps For Career And College Counseling, Oscar T. Mcknight, Kerri Carmichael, Gregory Pollock

Oscar T McKnight Ph.D.

Perceptual mapping is a modeling technique used in business to visually display relationships and perceptions of customers. In business, perceptual maps are often called product positioning maps. Conceptually, perceptual maps foster a better and deeper understanding of products and services in terms of public perception or actual outcomes. In short, marketers attempt to position products, product line, and brand or company type relative to their competition or competency. For counselors, this process facilitates open and honest discussion relative to personal expectations and goals. This presentation reviews how to interpret and use a Perceptual Map given a multiple variable (axis) system ...

This presentation explores the history and evolution of an Arbitron assessment model (Nielsen Audio) when applied in higher education, specifically Student Affairs. Highlighted are the differences between traditional models of Student Affairs assessments and a modified Arbitron assessment. This new Student Affairs assessment model allows an institutional researcher to study student feedback minute to minute, day to day, week to week basis, etc. Discussed are the strengths and weaknesses of a Nielsen Audio model when applied to Student Affairs.

Graduate Work 101 2.0: An Online Tutorial To Meet The Information Needs Of Graduate Students At Umass Boston, Mary T. Moser, Christina Gattone

Mary T. Moser

Healey Library is faced with the same problems that plague many of us at UMass Boston: How do we offer innovative, student-centered services with limited funding, staffing, and resources? Additionally, as UMass Boston grows into its mission as a research-extensive university, we find ourselves facing a new set of challenges in supporting growing populations of graduate students and their research projects. One consistent theme that emerges through conversations with faculty and administration is that graduate students seem underprepared to tackle information seeking and research management in today’s digital landscape. Many students have been out of school for long enough ...

Considering The Educational Benefits Of A Cubesat Program, Jeremy Straub, Samudra Haque, Christopher K. Dinelli

Jeremy Straub

This presentation will provide an overview of work performed at the University of North Dakota with regards to the characterization of educational benefits from small spacecraft development efforts. We report on efforts to characterize benefits that ensued from participation for personal extracurricular enrichment, as part of a formal class (on project management), as part of multiple senior design projects, for independent study credit and for satisfying class project requirements. This assessment has been performed using a standard questionnaire for student research participation as well as custom questionnaires related to program focus areas. We have also analyzed student course performance, where ...

Web-Based Student Peer Review: A Research Summary, Edward F. Gehringer Mar 2014

Web-Based Student Peer Review: A Research Summary, Edward F. Gehringer

Edward F Gehringer

Interest in Web-based peer-review systems dates back nearly 20 years. Systems were built to let students give feedback to other students, mainly to help them improve their writing. But students are not necessarily effective peer reviewers. Left to their own devices, they will submit cursory reviews, which are not very helpful to their peers. Techniques have been developed to improve the quality of reviews. Calibration is one such technique. Students are asked to assess samples of writing that have previously been assessed by experts. Students must submit an evaluation “close enough” to the experts’ before they are allowed to review ...

Powerpoint Slides For Big Data, Big Libraries, Big Problems?: The 2014 Libtech Anti-Talk?, Nathan A. Rinne Mr.

Nathan A Rinne Mr.

The desire to create automatons is a familiar theme in human history, and during the age of the Enlightenment mechanical automatons became not only an “emblem of the cosmos”, but a symbol of man’s confidence that he would unlock nature’s greatest mysteries and fully harness her power. And yet only a century later, automatons had begun to represent human repression and servitude, a theme later picked up by writers of science fiction. Man’s confidence undeterred, the endgame of the modern scientific and technological mindset, or MSTM, seems to be increasingly coming into view with the rise of ...

Modifying Gluten Free Food For Arabic Celiac Patients, Suad Fahad Alfuraih Feb 2014

Modifying Gluten Free Food For Arabic Celiac Patients, Suad Fahad Alfuraih

Dr. Suad Fahad AlFuraih

Coping with Celiac Disease is so hard especially at the being months after been diagnosed. However, patients and families will easily get used to the challenge and live normally. As scientists, clinicians, moms, dads, nutritionists, teachers, dieticians, we often speak objectively, as in, this is the best thing for the whole world to do, yet we know that everyone is so very different--different in genetics, in environment, in habits--and we must look at the individual to determine what is truly best. According to a study will be shown in APPENDIX 1, done by Prof. Aljebreen and other Saudi colleagues at ...


Mobile Modeling: Using And Creating Ipad And Ipod Apps To Shape Students With Disabilities, Carolyn Wicks, Amanda J. Rockinson-Szapkiw, Justin M. Tucker Feb 2014

Mobile Modeling: Using And Creating Ipad And Ipod Apps To Shape Students With Disabilities, Carolyn Wicks, Amanda J. Rockinson-Szapkiw, Justin M. Tucker

Carolyn J. Wicks

Modeling is a technique that is often used to teach new skills to students with disabilities. Modeling is effective for teaching communication, social, and functional living skills to students with emotional, behavioral, and cognitive disorders (Werts, Caldwell, & Wolery, 1996). Video modeling and audio prompts can be as effective as live modeling (Murzynski & Bourret, 2007; Rehfeldt, Dahman, Young, Cherry, & Davis, 2003). In fact, some researchers have suggested that video modeling results in more rapid acquisition of skills than live modeling and may even be more generalizable across environments (Charlop & Milstein ,1989). With the introduction of mobile devises, students can be provided with pictorial instructions , audio prompts, and video modeling at any time in any place. Research is beginning to demonstrate that the use of mobile devices for these purposes is effective (Furniss et al., 2011; Hammond, Whatley, Ayres, & Gast , 2010). Developers of iPad and ipod touch applications have developed a variety of tools with pictorial instructions , audio prompts, and video modeling for teaching students with disabilities. Apps like Story Kit, Puppet Pals, Strip Design, Model Me Kids, and Popplet are some of the many applications . Several of these applications have been effectively used in ...


Technology And Supervision: Implementing An Online 360 Evaluation, Oscar T. Mcknight, Gregory Pollock Jan 2014

Technology And Supervision: Implementing An Online 360 Evaluation, Oscar T. Mcknight, Gregory Pollock

Oscar T McKnight Ph.D.

Program introduces and discusses the process and implementation of an online 360-Degree evaluation for counseling interns. This evaluation process employs feedback from the counseling intern’s immediate work circle: for example, the supervisor; clients; staff; and referral sources. In addition, the counseling intern evaluates their own services. Learning outcomes include, but not limited to knowledge of how to construct a 360-Degree evaluation; how to interpret the data; how to present outcomes to the counseling intern; and the pros/cons of such an evaluation. Program introduces a special discussion on how to turn qualitative information into testable quantitative data.
