The Victorian Deaf Education Institute (VDEI), Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) commissioned the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) to undertake a project to design, conduct and analyse the learning needs of teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing. The focus of the study was to identify any gap between teachers’ existing skills and knowledge and the skills that are needed to optimise student learning outcomes.

Integrating Instructional Technology Into A Teacher Education Program: A Three Tiered Approach, Elizabeth Truesdell, Rebecca Birch Jan 2015

Integrating Instructional Technology Into A Teacher Education Program: A Three Tiered Approach, Elizabeth Truesdell, Rebecca Birch

Elizabeth Truesdell

This project description examines how a teacher education program integrated new instructional technology through the creation of a Technology Facilitator position in the department. The project proceeded through a three-tiered system of learning "literacy" to establish a knowledge base amongst faculty members, "augmenting" required courses to model the use of instructional technology, and finally the "transformation" of the credential program where the activity of learning can only be accomplished through leveraging technology. As a professional program housed in a liberal arts institution, this project combines aspects of the essential learning outcomes of the 21st century with the professional skills required ...

Effectiveness Of Understanding Relations Between Community, Home, And School For Future Educators, Claudia Peralta, Sonia Galaviz Dec 2013

Effectiveness Of Understanding Relations Between Community, Home, And School For Future Educators, Claudia Peralta, Sonia Galaviz

Claudia Peralta

As educators committed to preparing teachers to teach effectively across differences and in ways that actively resist perpetuating injustices, we have found that designing opportunities that take teachers into the children’s community is the best way to learn about the cultural wealth existing in homes and to understand the importance of including parents in the education of their children. College students from a graduate program at a public institution were asked to engage in community, neighborhood and home visits to reflect on their understanding of the relationship among community, home, and schools. As a result of these interactions, the ...


Mothering And Literacies, Amanda Richey, Linda Evans Dec 2013

Mothering And Literacies, Amanda Richey, Linda Evans

Linda S. Evans

This collection explores the connections between mothering/motherhood and literacy as it is broadly defined. Literacy, in this case, encompasses reading/writing literacy as well as multimodal, new or digital, and contested multiliteracies that are socioculturally situated and contextually defined. Mothers are often the object of cultural and popular discourses on family literacy, as well as targets in international campaigns to increase literacy learning. There has been little scholarly attention paid to how mothers in diverse sociocultural contexts do literacy, or how literacies have been mediated or challenged by mothers and motherhood. By critically examining the connections between mothers and ...


From Agile Methods To Lean Practices: Trends In Software Development, Cécile Péraire Dec 2013

From Agile Methods To Lean Practices: Trends In Software Development, Cécile Péraire

Cécile Péraire

Since the ratification of the Agile Manifesto in 2001, agile methods such as Scrum and XP have become mainstream and proved their ability to shorten the software development lifecycle, raise quality and reduce costs. Hence the question: Is agile a "silver bullet" that can conquer the inherent complexity of software development? Based on current trends in the software industry, the answer to this question is "not quite". Given the vast spectrum of software development endeavors, one size does not fit all. Each organization or project team is unique and needs to identify a software development strategy that suits its own ...

Invited Panel Presentation On Theoretical Perspectives On Research In Higher And Professional Education: Making Sense Of Academic Language And Learning (All), Alisa Percy

Alisa Percy, PhD

Theoretical perspectives on research in higher and professional education
Invited Panel for Higher & Professional Education SIG, 2013 AARE Conference, Adelaide
Alisa Percy (University of Wollongong); Steven Hodge (Deakin University) and Jessica Gerrard (The University of Melbourne)
Much of the literature in higher and professional education remains under-theorised. The AARE Higher and Professional Education SIG is committed to enhancing the theoretical profile of research in the post-compulsory education sector and in AARE generally. In addition, a number of key educational theorists in the AARE community will soon be retiring and it is vital to create spaces for early career researchers to ...

Connecting To “Get Things Done”: A Grounded Theory Study Of Bias Response Teams, Lucy Lepeau, Demetri Morgan, Hilary Zimmerman, J.T. Snipes, Beth Marcotte Nov 2013

Connecting To “Get Things Done”: A Grounded Theory Study Of Bias Response Teams, Lucy Lepeau, Demetri Morgan, Hilary Zimmerman, J.T. Snipes, Beth Marcotte

Demetri L. Morgan

As college campuses become increasingly diverse (Anderson, 2003), institutions have been pushed to create safe and educationally supportive environments for an array of students (Harper, Patton, Wooden, 2009; Bauman, Bustillos, Bensimon, Brown, Bartee, 2005). Little is known about how institutions have come to respond to the, at times hostile, interactions between students, staff, and organizations on college campuses. One way institutions have responded is with the creation of bias response teams which bring together campus professionals and faculty from different departments to address reported incidents as a result of these interactions. This grounded theory study aims to investigate the process ...

Faculty Learning Communities (Flcs): A Flc On Mindfulness Discusses Their Experiences, Roben Torosyan, Minae Savas, Kristine Keay, Lydia Burak, Christine Brown

Roben Torosyan Ph.D.

An FLC is a small group of colleagues who meet over one or two semesters, typically every two weeks for 1.5 to 2 hours. The group focuses on one area of study, sets its own goals and often disseminates its results at the end. This presentation will demonstrate what an FLC can do for you, how to form an FLC and how to sustain it. The presenters formed an FLC at BSU focusing on “mindfulness.” They will briefly share the benefits gained professionally and personally by being members of an FLC as well as researched uses of mindfulness in ...

Two Approaches To Teaching Young Children Science Concepts/Vocabulary And Scientific Problem-Solving Skills, Soo-Young Hong Nov 2013

Two Approaches To Teaching Young Children Science Concepts/Vocabulary And Scientific Problem-Solving Skills, Soo-Young Hong

Soo-Young Hong

This study examined the effectiveness of two different approaches to teaching designed to facilitate children’s learning about science concepts/vocabulary related to objects’ floating and sinking and scientific problem-solving skills: responsive teaching (RT) and the combination of responsive teaching and explicit instruction (RT+EI). Participants included 104 children (51 boys) aged 4 to 5 years. Small groups of children were randomly assigned to one of the two intervention groups (RT, RT+EI) or to a control group. Responsive teaching (RT) reflects a common approach to teaching young children, and the combination approach (RT+EI) includes Explicit Instruction as well ...
