Dancing For Parkinson’S: A Gateway For Connectedness To Peers And Social Assurance, P. Izbicki, Elizabeth L. Stegemoller, J. Compton, J. Thompson

Kinesiology Publications

The first-year student experience in college is a crucial time for personal and professional development, especially for students entering science, technology, education, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Unfortunately, it is also the time when students most commonly leave STEM, largely due to disconnection from faculty and peers. The Freshman Research Initiative (FRI) is a program that introduces first-year undergraduates to research in a variety of fields. The program has shown positive outcomes for student success and retention in STEM fields. However, it has not been demonstrated whether this program can increase social connectedness and assurance, potentially contributing to students’ longer-term retention ...

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

Effective facilitation of active learning is key to enhancing student engagement in engineering classrooms. Instructors need opportunities for frequent observation, feedback, and reflection on the use of their active learning strategies, yet there are no validated automated approaches available. We address this need by designing a feedback dashboard, TEACHActive, that leverages classroom analytics from an automated sensing observation system. The TEACHActive dashboard provides feedback on the in-class implementation of various active learning strategies in engineering classrooms. In this poster, we present the initial phases of a human-centered dashboard design process. The human-centered design (HCD) approach includes techniques such as, creating ...

What Best Animal Science Teachers Do, B. D. Whitaker, W. R. Lamberson, M. F. Smith, B. S. Walters, Curtis R. Youngs

Animal Science Publications

Great teachers have the extraordinary ability to inspire and motivate even those students who resist learning. The top educators are knowledgeable not only about the content of the course they are teaching but also of the information, literature, and practice of instructional delivery to their audience. Many exemplary educators have been profiled and studied; however, there is a paucity of information pertaining to how the top animal science teachers teach. The objective of this study was to identify and describe characteristics of award-winning animal science teachers. The inclusion criterion for selecting faculty was being bestowed an excellence in teaching award ...

The extreme academic and social disruption caused by COVID-19 in the spring and summer of 2020 led to the loss of many student internships. We report here our creation of a novel internship for students majoring in the biological sciences. Student interns worked together to systematically categorize multiple episodes of This Week in Microbiology (TWiM). They annotated episodes by labeling relevant ASM fundamental curricular guidelines and the microbiology techniques described in several podcast episodes. Interns worked together, which advanced their written and oral communication skills while improving their scientific thinking skills. Faculty then enhanced each annotation by adding short figure-reading ...

Electrical and Computer Engineering Conference Papers, Posters and Presentations

Problem Statement: Attendance is an important part of Team Based Learning, and instructors must take time during each class to go through roll call. This time adds up and by the end of the semester, can equal to multiple lectures worth of time. Although a handful of attendance tools exist, none of these tools are adapted to team-based classes, and none of them record the attendance without any interaction from the instructor or student side.

A comparative study to show the effectiveness of Team-Based Learning (TBL) and Mixed Active-Traditional (MATL) learning for an introductory programming course at Iowa State University is discussed in this paper. The introductory programming C course was offered to 46 students using TBL and 50 students using MATL, led by two different instructors who use the same course schedule and textbook. The students on both courses received the same number of lectures/labs during the semester. To be able to assess the two methodologies, the instructors deliver the same course contents. Still, they differ with the course delivery method. MATL utilizes ...


Disrupting Ableism: Strengths-Based Representations Of Disability In Children’S Picture Books, H. Emily Hayden, Angela M.T. Prince Dec 2020

Disrupting Ableism: Strengths-Based Representations Of Disability In Children’S Picture Books, H. Emily Hayden, Angela M.T. Prince

Education Publications

Children’s literature is a powerful influence on the social construction of perceptions and narratives, and it is critically important that all children see themselves represented in the books in their classrooms. However, strength-based views of characters with a disability are rare in children’s picture books, meaning that children with a disability may not see themselves reflected in the books on their classroom shelves. Even worse, books may reinforce limiting, ableist stereotypes and myths about people with disabilities and their lives. Representing characters with disabilities in strength-based ways in children’s literature, where “the person’s own abilities and ...


Problem On The Plains: College Earnings Premiums In Small Metropolitan Areas, John V. Winters Dec 2020

Problem On The Plains: College Earnings Premiums In Small Metropolitan Areas, John V. Winters

Economics Working Papers

I use the American Community Survey to examine how college earnings premiums differ across small metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) in the U.S. I document that the West North Central Division (Plains Region) has especially low average college earnings premiums. Controlling for observable MSA characteristics via regression explains some of the difference between the Plains and other regions, but large and important differences remain. The low return to education for small MSAs in the Plains suggests that they will face special challenges building and retaining human capital in the near future. These areas may especially struggle to attract college-educated in-migrants.

Are You Being Rhetorical? An Open Corpus Of Machine Annotated Rhetorical Moves, Simon Knight, Sophie Abel, Antonette Shibani, Yoong Kuan Goh, Rianne Conijn, Andrew Gibson, Sowmya Vajjala, Elena Cotos, Ágnes Sándor, Simon Buckingham Shum

English Publications

Writing analytics has emerged as a sub-field of learning analytics, with applications including the provision of formative feedback to students in developing their writing capacities. Rhetorical markers in writing have become a key feature in this feedback, with a number of tools being developed across research and teaching contexts. However, there is no shared corpus of texts annotated by these tools, nor is it clear how the tool annotations compare. Thus, resources are scarce for comparing tools for both tool development and pedagogic purposes. In this paper, we conduct such a comparison and introduce a sample corpus of texts representative ...

Iowa State University Articles and Manuscripts

Extension is positioned to develop and implement high-quality, high-impact internship experiences for college students in local communities. The creation of the Rising Star Internship program arose from interest in providing experiential work opportunities for Iowa State University students coupled with the organizational goals of promoting awareness of Cooperative Extension and increasing interest in employability within Extension. The program provides a paid county-level summer internship with several unique elements. Evidence collected from student participants suggests that it is a mutually beneficial endeavor for Extension, students, and communities. Extension systems may desire to replicate these efforts if they share similar ambitions.


Focus On Friendship Or Fights For Civil Rights? Teaching The Difficult History Of Japanese American Incarceration Through The Bracelet, Noreen Naseem Rodriguez Nov 2020

Focus On Friendship Or Fights For Civil Rights? Teaching The Difficult History Of Japanese American Incarceration Through The Bracelet, Noreen Naseem Rodriguez

Education Publications

In regard to the imprisonment of 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, euphemisms abound. The most popular of these is the term “internment” in reference to the events initiated by the War Relocation Authority as a result of Executive Order 9066. However, as Daniels (2005) and other Asian Americanists have noted, internment is a legal process designed for prisoners of war and civilian enemy nationals. As two-thirds of those who were imprisoned as a result of EO 9066 were U.S. citizens, these individuals by definition do not fall under the legal designation of ...


Disciplinary Literacy And The 4es: Rigorous And Substantive Responses To Interdisciplinary Standards, H. Emily Hayden, Michelle Eades-Baird Nov 2020

Disciplinary Literacy And The 4es: Rigorous And Substantive Responses To Interdisciplinary Standards, H. Emily Hayden, Michelle Eades-Baird

Education Publications

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) have described discipline-specific literacy skills needed to successfully engage with science concepts, and science assessments ask students to use language in many and varied forms to mediate their science thought and actions and prove mastery of content. Yet many science teachers have not been prepared with skills that help them recognize the ways literacy is integral to the discipline of science, much less integrate it. This research explored the experiences of three classroom science teachers as they worked to enact overlapping English Language Arts and science standards ...


Teacher Beliefs About Sustainable Agriculture: A Self-Made Measurement Scale, Mathew Muma, Robert Martin, Mack C. Shelley Ii Oct 2020

Teacher Beliefs About Sustainable Agriculture: A Self-Made Measurement Scale, Mathew Muma, Robert Martin, Mack C. Shelley Ii

Political Science Publications

The study’s purpose was to analyze the validity of the construct of a self-made Alternative-Conventional Agricultural Paradigm scale using the teacher population teaching high school agriculture in the North Central Region of the USA. A random sample of 844 teachers was drawn. Teachers were self-administered questionnaires with 5-point Likert-type scales. Instrument inter-item consistency and item coherence were determined. The relatively high coefficient alpha (.82), mean item total correlation (.40), and unrotated first factors with modest number of items loading on the factor means that the scale has mainly one underlying construct. The teacher population holds consistent views and attitudes ...


Revisiting The Intelligibility And Nativeness Principles, John Levis Oct 2020

Revisiting The Intelligibility And Nativeness Principles, John Levis

English Publications

Levis (2005) named two conflicting approaches to pronunciation teaching, the Nativeness Principle and the Intelligibility Principle. This paper revisits those two principles to argue for the superiority of the Intelligibility Principle in regard to where pronunciation fits within the wider field of language teaching, in how it effectively addresses teaching goals, in how it best addresses all contexts of L2 pronunciation learning, and in how it recognizes the reality of social consequences of pronunciation differences. In contrast, the Nativeness Principle, despite its long pedigree and many defenders, falls short by advocating native pronunciation for L2 learners, which is both unlikely ...


Employment Opportunities And High School Completion During The Covid-19 Recession, Kunwon Ahn, Jun Yeong Lee, John V. Winters Oct 2020

Employment Opportunities And High School Completion During The Covid-19 Recession, Kunwon Ahn, Jun Yeong Lee, John V. Winters

Economics Working Papers

COVID-19 created major disruptions for young people including health concerns, school closures, reduced social opportunities, and a wilting economy. We examine the effect of COVID-19 on high school completion in the United States. We find that high school completion rates increased considerably in 2020 compared to previous years. We investigate various mechanisms and find that worse employment conditions were the driving force. The lower opportunity costs of schooling because of the pandemic recession encouraged more young people to complete high school. The pandemic created extensive problems in education, but fortunately it did not reduce overall high school completion rates.


Coronavirus Y El Futuro De La Educación De Lenguas Extranjeras A Nivel Universitario, Cristina Pardo-Ballester Oct 2020

Coronavirus Y El Futuro De La Educación De Lenguas Extranjeras A Nivel Universitario, Cristina Pardo-Ballester

World Languages and Cultures Publications

A principios de los años noventa empezaron a culminar proyectos de tele-colaboración en los que muchos educadores de lengua contactaban a otros que se encontraban ubicados en otro lugar con el fin de que sus estudiantes colaborasen juntos. El punto geográfico no fue un obstáculo para el aprendizaje de una segunda lengua (L2). Por ejemplo, estudiantes de español como lengua extranjera o L2 en una universidad estadounidense colaboraban con otros que aprendían inglés, pero estaban ubicados en Chile o cualquier otro país de habla hispana. Estos intercambios virtuales se lograban mediante las simples herramientas del chat o correo electrónico y ...


Life Expectancy At Birth And Lifetime Education And Earnings, Mohammad Mainul Hoque, Elizabeth M. King, Claudio E. Montenegro, Peter F. Orazem Sep 2020

Life Expectancy At Birth And Lifetime Education And Earnings, Mohammad Mainul Hoque, Elizabeth M. King, Claudio E. Montenegro, Peter F. Orazem

Economics Working Papers

Exploiting cross–birth cohort and cross-country variation from a pool of 188 household surveys from 111 countries, this paper measures how life expectancy at birth affects lifetime education and earnings. On average, individuals add one year of schooling for every 8.3 years of increased life expectancy at birth. Lifetime earnings increase by 1.7 percent per year of added life expectancy at birth. The estimates imply that rising life expectancy at birth explains 75 percent of the increase in average years of schooling worldwide for birth cohorts between 1922 and 1987 and 38 percent of the increase in average ...


The Pursuit Of Equal Educational Opportunity: A Historical Analysis Of The South Texas/Border Initiative, Vincent D. Carales, Erin Doran Aug 2020

The Pursuit Of Equal Educational Opportunity: A Historical Analysis Of The South Texas/Border Initiative, Vincent D. Carales, Erin Doran

Education Publications

The purpose of this historical study was to investigate how individuals articulated the call for the South Texas/Border Initiative, a legislative mandate that funneled unprecedented amounts of funding to underserved universities along the Texas-Mexico border region between 1987 and 2003. Utilizing archival sources, we conducted an analysis of the intentional shifts in funding critical to equity and access in higher education. The events surrounding the South Texas/Border Initiative are unique in that they represent purposeful Latina/o community and state-wide activism that challenged higher education funding inequities.

The COVID-19 pandemic prompted a creative adjustment for one programmatic offering at the Graduate Communication Center (GCC) at Iowa State University. The GCC, an academic communication support center created in 2015 to meet the emerging communication needs of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars at this large R1 university, shifted its entire functioning to an online format during the Spring 2020 semester.


How Hispanic Should Hispanic-Serving Institutions Be?, Erin Doran Aug 2020

How Hispanic Should Hispanic-Serving Institutions Be?, Erin Doran

Education Publications

The Board of Regents appointed President Thomas to the helm of Nuestra University, a large and urban Hispanic-Serving University. In the first years of his presidency, Nuestra achieved important milestone in its quest to better serve and graduate students from underrepresented populations. However, Thomas’s hiring and presidency has faced critical questions, especially when Thomas’s new strategic plan and plans for community involvement appeared to ignore the demographics both on and off-campus. This case study focuses on the potential implications for Minority-Serving Institutions when their administration does not match the demographics of their major stakeholders (i.e., students, faculty ...


Impact On Teacher Beliefs About Emergent Bilinguals’ Mathematical Learning, Ji Yeong I, Christa D. Jackson, Ricardo Martinez Aug 2020

Impact On Teacher Beliefs About Emergent Bilinguals’ Mathematical Learning, Ji Yeong I, Christa D. Jackson, Ricardo Martinez

Education Publications

We investigated how an online course designed for teachers to learn how to teach mathematics for emergent bilinguals influenced teachers’ beliefs toward emergent bilinguals, especially in terms of culturally responsive mathematics teaching. Using qualitative pre- and post-surveys and the modified culturally responsive mathematics teaching framework, we examined 27 teachers’ responses within five domains: cognitive demand, mathematical discourse, power and participation, academic language support, and funds of knowledge. The results showed both preservice and inservice teachers began to shift their beliefs from deficit to asset-based views.

Extension Demonstration: Grameen Microfinance Methods And Capital Access For Low-Income Female Entrepreneurs, Mark A. Edelman

Economics Working Papers

A nonprofit community development financial institution and Extension collaborated to conduct a demonstration project to evaluate efficacy of Grameen peer-group microfinance methodology in addressing barriers faced by lowincome women entrepreneurs in a small metro area. Program performance metrics achieved by 284 low-income, culturally diverse, primarily women entrepreneurs over five years included: a loan repayment rate of 99+ percent, increased average client income, savings accumulation at a local bank, and increased opportunities to improve average credit scores. Client surveys indicated peer-group methods, program structure, incentives for individual behaviors and group responsibilities provided opportunity to develop confidence, leadership skills, and teamwork.


Second Language Comprehensibility As A Dynamic Construct, Pavel Trofimovich, Charles L. Nagle, Mary G. O'Brien, Sara Kennedy, Kym Taylor Reid, Lauren Strachan Jul 2020

Second Language Comprehensibility As A Dynamic Construct, Pavel Trofimovich, Charles L. Nagle, Mary G. O'Brien, Sara Kennedy, Kym Taylor Reid, Lauren Strachan

World Languages and Cultures Publications

This study examined longitudinal changes in second language (L2) interlocutors’ mutual comprehensibility ratings (perceived ease of understanding speech), targeting comprehensibility as a dynamic, time-varying, inter action-centered construct. In a repeated-measures, within-participants design, 20 pairs of L2 English university students from different language backgrounds engaged in three collaborative and interactive tasks over 17 minutes, rating their partner’s comprehensibility at 2–3 minute intervals using 100-millimeter scales (seven ratings per interlocutor). Mutual comprehensibility ratings followed a U-shaped function over time, with comprehensibility (initially perceived to be high) being affected by task complexity but then reaching high levels by the end of ...


Expanding The Scope Of L2 Intelligibility Research, Charles Nagle, Amanda Huensch Jul 2020

Expanding The Scope Of L2 Intelligibility Research, Charles Nagle, Amanda Huensch

World Languages and Cultures Publications

This study investigated relationships among intelligibility, comprehensibility, and accentedness in the speech of L2 learners of Spanish who completed a prompted response speaking task. Thirty native Spanish listeners from Spain were recruited through Amazon Mechanical Turk to transcribe and rate extracted utterances, which were also coded for grammatical and phonemic errors, and speaking rate. Descriptively, although most utterances were intelligible, their comprehensibility and accentedness varied substantially. Mixed-effects modeling showed that comprehensibility was significantly associated with intelligibility whereas accentedness was not. Additionally, phonemic and grammatical errors were significant predictors of intelligibility and comprehensibility, but only phonemic errors were significantly related to ...


Whose Data? Which Rights? Whose Power? A Policy Discourse Analysis Of Student Privacy Policy Documents, Michael Brown, Carrie Klein Jun 2020

Whose Data? Which Rights? Whose Power? A Policy Discourse Analysis Of Student Privacy Policy Documents, Michael Brown, Carrie Klein

Education Publications

The proliferation of information technology tools in higher education has resulted in an explosion of data about students and their contexts. Yet, current policies governing these data are limited in their usefulness for informing students, instructors, and administrators of their rights and responsibilities related to data use because they are based on antiquated conceptions of data and data systems. To understand how data privacy policies conceptualize and represent data, privacy, student agency, and institutional power, we conducted a policy discourse analysis of 151 university policy statements related to student information privacy and the responsible use of student data from 78 ...
