Seeing The Global Physical Context Of Wholeness, Hamid Rafizadeh Jan 2020

Seeing The Global Physical Context Of Wholeness, Hamid Rafizadeh

Learning and Teaching Forum

Kennedy Union 311

The pursuit of the whole person through models like 3H (head, heart, hands) my miss a critical physical aspect within which the wholeness develops and exists. One such aspect originates at the earth’s two versions. Humankind has a good understanding of one version and little if any of the second. Such lack of knowledge would adversely affect the development and maintenance of human wholeness. This proposal considers a workshop at the 2020 Learning and Teaching Forum to address this knowledge deficiency in University of Dayton’s community through participative knowledge processing and systems thinking.

Learning and Teaching Forum

Kennedy Union 211

Majors level Human Anatomy has long been taught as a gatekeeping class for medical schools of graduate schools, and has been highly professionalized due to this. It has also been constructed historically in a very hierarchical paradigm that has multiple oppressions supporting both the study of anatomy and the anatomy classroom. Besides these social issues around anatomy, there are the pedagogical issues of treating this material as something to just memorize and not understand that can cause problems for a student of anatomy. Disrupting these processes can be a very powerful force for anti-racism, anti-sexism, and hopefully ...


The Power Of Collaboration: Cross-Boundary Contributions To Students’ Holistic Success, Dorothy Mensah-Aggrey Jan 2020

The Power Of Collaboration: Cross-Boundary Contributions To Students’ Holistic Success, Dorothy Mensah-Aggrey

Learning and Teaching Forum

Kennedy Union 311

Cross boundary and collaborative education have existed in the past. The University of Dayton’s attempt to reignite these concepts of education is in line with its Catholic Marianist identity. Education can be achieved in silos or collaboration of various entities on campus, both face-to-face and in current times, online as well. This presentation will offer ways in which the Institute for Pastoral Initiatives has in the past achieved collaboration with other departments on campus, and how this can be done across the board for maximum student development.

Barriers To Quality Early Mathematics Teaching And Learning, Bilge Cerezci Nov 2019

Barriers To Quality Early Mathematics Teaching And Learning, Bilge Cerezci

Journal of Vincentian Social Action

Growing evidence demonstrates that early mathematics teaching and learning experiences, among all educational resources, are especially important contributors to students’ learning and later achievement in mathematics and other areas, particularly in low-SES students who are at risk of falling behind in mathematics achievement. As early mathematics education has assumed heightened importance, quality of early mathematics teaching and learning experiences has attracted national attention, and the pressure to perform in mathematics has trickled down to preschoolers and kindergarteners. How can nations make sure their citizens are equipped with the necessary math skills and knowledge in order to be competent and productive ...


Buying A Better World: Students As Conscious Consumers, Sean Murray Nov 2019

Buying A Better World: Students As Conscious Consumers, Sean Murray

Journal of Vincentian Social Action

Conscious consumer movements have given people opportunities to “vote with their dollars” – that is, buy from companies with values matching their own, and forgo products from businesses with questionable policies and practices. After providing brief context about consumerism and conscious consumption, I focus on a Conscious Consumer Project that I teach in my First Year Writing courses at St. John’s University. Excerpts of student writing emphasizing labor issues, as well as student reflections on the project, are shared as I discuss possibilities for revising and improving the assignment. The possibilities discussed include increasing opportunities for students to do academic ...

Questionable Behavior In The Writing Lab, David Bates Nov 2019

Questionable Behavior In The Writing Lab, David Bates

Writing Center Analysis Paper

In the setting of a writing center tutoring world where calibrated questioning is typically a core strategy of connecting with, evaluating, and ultimately counseling student writers, my work is an attempt to discover by examination and evaluation the effectiveness of questioning tools and techniques used by writing tutors and teachers. My purpose is to offer potential refinements to common questioning methods so as to help tutors better facilitate student writers in generating their own solutions to writing quandaries, as opposed to being led to preconceived tutor-generated solutions. The content of this paper is based upon my observations of tutoring sessions ...


Self-Discovery, Self-Sufficiency: Assuming The Role Of A Listener While Tutoring, Adrian Thomson Nov 2019

Self-Discovery, Self-Sufficiency: Assuming The Role Of A Listener While Tutoring, Adrian Thomson

Writing Center Analysis Paper

My discovery of the method of student self-discovery in tutor sessions established itself early on in my path of wearing the ‘two different hats’ of tutor and lecturer. By forming a spiel that represents my own personality within established Writing Center philosophy, I attempt to allow the student to control the session and discover improvements of their paper on their own. I do so by taking the role of a listener, which may lend itself as well to my teaching endeavors.


Hats: Being A Tutor, Teacher, Student, And Mother Learning When To Wear What Hat, Holly Vasic Nov 2019

Hats: Being A Tutor, Teacher, Student, And Mother Learning When To Wear What Hat, Holly Vasic

Writing Center Analysis Paper

“Chapter One” of The Bedford Guide for Writing Tutors (Ryan & Zimmerelli, 2016) breaks down the ways in which tutors may interact with students with the metaphor of hats and “the many hats tutors wear” (Ryan & Zimmerelli, 2016). This paper explores the way in which these hats have been worn in the USU Writing Center, in my experience, as well as how they translate into other roles I play.


Forget Power Dynamics: Why You Should Be Bbfs With Your Students And Professors, Maygan Barker Nov 2019

Forget Power Dynamics: Why You Should Be Bbfs With Your Students And Professors, Maygan Barker

Writing Center Analysis Paper

This paper is half personal narrative and half reflection on the nature of power dynamics in the classroom and writing center. The paper examines the nature and nuances of the word “relationship,” how we interact with the concept of relationships and power, and the ways we limit our joys through limiting the types of relationships we engage in. From there it discusses how to challenge those power dynamics in the classroom and writing center, and the benefits of doing so.


The Wall Of Silence: Disrupting Kairotic Spaces, Victoria Jaye Nov 2019

The Wall Of Silence: Disrupting Kairotic Spaces, Victoria Jaye

Writing Center Analysis Paper

Every class has a balance of kairotic space where teachers have power and students accept that power within the confining space of the classroom. Power defines our world as well as our relationships to one another; without power there is no control which can be key to governing a classroom. Disruption of this power dynamic can open dialogue between teachers and students that might not have existed otherwise because students feel confined to the strictures binding their power creating a wall of silence. Using brainstorming and reflecting as well as peer tutoring, I experimented with breaking down the wall of ...


Learners’ Perspectives On The Use And Support Of Student Created Video Assignments At James Madison University, Annette Bruff Liskey Nov 2019

Learners’ Perspectives On The Use And Support Of Student Created Video Assignments At James Madison University, Annette Bruff Liskey

Showcase of Graduate Research and Creative Activities

This research is an exploratory analysis of the use of student created video assignments at JMU, a pedagogical strategy that is increasingly common but not widely researched. The study collected quantitative data via an online survey of JMU students with the objective of examining the use, design, and outcomes of student created video assignments at James Madison University. Survey topics included the requirements of the assignment, the course that included the assignment, resources available and/or used to complete the assignment, students’ perceptions of the learning outcomes, as well as non-identifying information about each respondent’s demographics and academic experience ...


Cohesive Integration Of E-Learning In Nursing Leadership Reality, Amanda Savage, Jessica Jose, Amy Herrington Nov 2019

Cohesive Integration Of E-Learning In Nursing Leadership Reality, Amanda Savage, Jessica Jose, Amy Herrington

Nursing Collection

There is a constant challenge to develop and implement courses in a manner that leads to direct translation of principles and skills to the workplace. As health care is an everchanging field, nursing faculty are faced with a constant state of flux that leads to research, review and re-creation of course materials. Most students in graduate nursing programs are nontraditional students. These students need to apply their newly learned skills in order to remain motivated and see the immediate value from course work. Problem-based learning is a way to meet the needs of nursing students. Creating unique opportunities through the ...

High, Cry, Hesitant: A Lesson In Effective Teaching, Macy Marin Keith Nov 2019

High, Cry, Hesitant: A Lesson In Effective Teaching, Macy Marin Keith

Writing Center Analysis Paper

There are no rules or perfect structures when it comes to teaching, tutoring, or learning. To be concerned with them will inevitably create a wall between the student and the teacher. That wall eliminates the possibility of open communication which leads to effective discussions—a back and forth—that results in true learning. Sometimes we need to kick the rules, the guides, and the formulas out the window and instead, remember what it is to be a student first.


Of Writing, Teaching, And Tutoring: Banishing The Presence Of The Inner Critic In The Writing Center, Andrew Romriell Nov 2019

Of Writing, Teaching, And Tutoring: Banishing The Presence Of The Inner Critic In The Writing Center, Andrew Romriell

Writing Center Analysis Paper

The inner critic is the internal voice inside all of us that impedes us with negative messages about ourselves and our own capabilities (Elliot 111). In this essay, I illustrate the impact an inner critic can have in Writing Centers for both students and tutors alike and structure strategies to silence that critic. Three specific strategies are provided: (1) to name the inner critic in order to grant control over it, (2) to practice freewriting and understanding poor first drafts, and (3) to assist the student in understanding the allowance for imperfection within writing. By implementing these strategies alongside awareness ...

Well, How Do You Feel About That Semicolon? Striking A Balance Between Instruction And Discovery As A Tutor And Teacher, Mark Smeltzer

Writing Center Analysis Paper

The paper explores the relationship between experiences with teaching and tutoring in the English Department at Utah State University. It examines observations of a first-year graduate instructor; it also draws conclusions on how to navigate the different environments of the USU Writing Center and the 1010 classroom, incorporating strategies and lessons from both


From Statia To School, Frances Avery Nov 2019

From Statia To School, Frances Avery

Writing Center Analysis Paper

This paper discusses how marginalized voices in the writing center and in the classroom can be heard. The atmosphere differences in the classroom and in the writing center contribute a great deal to the differences in communication that occur there. This paper does not define the term marginalization; basically, it refers to the exclusion that occurs because someone or a group of people are different than the people or group of people who are spear-heading the conversation. The paper begins with a personal story of marginalization and then moves into how marginalization takes places in academia. At the end of ...


Learning On Equal Grounds, Andrea Diamond Nov 2019

Learning On Equal Grounds, Andrea Diamond

Writing Center Analysis Paper

Utah State University welcomes students to its beautiful campus where they can achieve their potential in an environment where everyone is welcome and each is promised that their voice will be heard and valued. The “Diversity Statement” facilitates this by encouraging discourse in a “free and respectful exchange of ideas.” Certainly, the opportunity to collaborate with students, scholars, and instructors in such an environment would help each gain command of the English language and improve their writing skills. As a graduate student, graduate instructor, and Writing Center tutor, I looked forward to this opportunity from many angles. Navigating my campus ...


Successful Tutoring Sessions, Successful Student Conferences, Elsa C. Torgersen Nov 2019

Successful Tutoring Sessions, Successful Student Conferences, Elsa C. Torgersen

Writing Center Analysis Paper

Many students come into their writing center appointments and student-teacher conferences with largely negative “writing baggage.” These students often have the expectation that these sessions will be what they were like in high school—the teacher marks what they have done wrong and though there may be positive things said, the students often remember the negative. So how can tutors and teachers create a new environment to help students feel comfortable with their writing while still teaching? This paper explores two potential solutions: beginning sessions and determining a session’s agenda. Through treating students like they matter and letting them ...


Audience Awareness In The Writing Center: Guiding Introductory Writing Students With More Directive Comments, Samantha Clem Nov 2019

Audience Awareness In The Writing Center: Guiding Introductory Writing Students With More Directive Comments, Samantha Clem

Writing Center Analysis Paper

Looking at the demographics of the students utilizing the writing center (WC) at a university in the US mountain west, the author questions whether the commenting styles in which WC tutors are trained accurately address the needs of the user population. Data on what courses WC visitors are enrolled in shows that the majority of WC user are introductory English students, with 70% of users being enrolled in one of the two required introductory level English courses (ENGL 1010 or ENGL 2010). Tutor training focuses on facilitative commenting styles, tactics that may not be effective for this given population of ...
