Exploring Agency For Equity In Teacher And Leadership Education Programs: A Self-Study Approach, Joanna Alcruz Ph.D., Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Mubina Schroeder Aug 2019

Exploring Agency For Equity In Teacher And Leadership Education Programs: A Self-Study Approach, Joanna Alcruz Ph.D., Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Mubina Schroeder

Andrea Honigsfeld

In a social-justice-centered graduate education program, three faculty researchers studied and synthesized their personal ideas of social justice and their impact on students. Utilizing ideas from Rios'(2018) conscious engagement framework for teacher agency, data was collected on notions of identity as teachers of social justice as well as student perceptions on the development of their individual and collective agency as a result of being in their classrooms. Preliminary results indicate that personal cross-cultural, interfaith, and cross-linguistic experiences of the faculty had great impact on the evolutionary progress of both individual student agency and collective classroom movement.

Negotiating Cross-Cultural, Interfaith, And Cross-Linguistic Identities Of Teacher Education In Professional And Personal Spaces, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Mubina Schroeder, Joanna Alcruz Ph.D.

Joanna Alcruz

Three partnering researchers investigates the differences and similarities of how they have developed complex identities as teacher educators representing different backgrounds how they learned to navigate their public and private spaces defined by cross-cultural, interfaith, and cross-linguistic experiences, and how they negotiated the intersectionalities of their multi-dimensional public and private selves. Building on Jones and McEwen’s (2000) conceptual model of multiple dimensions of identity and utilizing a collaborative approach to self-study methodology, they found that boundaries are blurred between personal/professional spaces of identity. As teacher educators we both model and instill compassion and commitment to diversity in future ...

Darren Morton

Introduction: There is a need for efficacious lifestyle interventions that promote the mental health and emotional wellness of both healthy and clinical cohorts. Evidence regarding the usefulness of adding human support (i.e. guidance) to improve the outcomes of web- and mobile app-based psychological interventions for clinical populations is mixed,1-3 however little is known about healthy cohorts.

Methods: 458 self-selected participants registered to join a 10-week, web- and mobile app-based, multimodal lifestyle intervention.

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 ...


Using Institutional Repositories To Promote Scholarly Development And Undergraduate Research, Mary George, Kayla Siddell Mar 2019

Using Institutional Repositories To Promote Scholarly Development And Undergraduate Research, Mary George, Kayla Siddell

Mary George

Employers have long been discouraged by the number of undergraduate students graduating without being adequately prepared to achieve their professional goals such as a career or graduate school.  Hands-on experiences along with research and scholarship opportunities contribute to scholarly development and can increase an undergraduate student’s career options and will better prepare them for graduate school. Many students struggle with scholarly development, viewing their work as homework rather than scholarship and often do not view themselves as scholars. Providing preservation and access of undergraduate work in an institutional repositories can help to alleviate these problem by archiving and promoting ...


Scorm Modules For Il Instruction And Assessment, Eric A. Kowalik Mar 2019

Scorm Modules For Il Instruction And Assessment, Eric A. Kowalik

Eric A. Kowalik

Rapid e-learning programs such as Articulate Storyline make it possible to develop highly interactive sharable content object reference model (SCORM) packages without advanced programming knowledge. These SCORM packages can be loaded into most learning management systems (LMS) and allow librarians to better gauge students' information literacy competency and create flipped instruction opportunities to allow for better use of valuable in-class time. Learn about the development, implementation, and evaluation of these SCORM packages, then join us in helping to improve them by downloading the open source packages from the project GitHub site - http://marquetterml.github.io/information-literacy-modules/.

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 ...


Academic Libraries And Autism Spectrum Disorder (Asd): How Do We Help?, Gerard Shea, Sebastian Derry Dec 2018

Academic Libraries And Autism Spectrum Disorder (Asd): How Do We Help?, Gerard Shea, Sebastian Derry

Gerard Shea

Current research indicates 1 in 59 children in the United States has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). As a result of the increased prevalence of ASD, a larger number of higher functioning ASD students are now participating in higher education. This potentially disruptive trend could impact academic libraries. The service values of librarianship require creating inclusive and accessible environments for college students with ASD. We will examine how the American with Disabilities Act concerns academic libraries regarding providing access and services to students with ASD. Attendees will learn how outreach initiatives by academic libraries can help ASD students succeed in college.
