Building The Capacity Of Teachers For Supporting 21st-Century Learning, Jenny Gore, Michelle Ware, Sui-Linn White, Lee-Anne Collins, Lloyd Bowen, Carole Hansen

2009 - 2019 ACER Research Conferences

Quality Teaching Rounds (QTR) was first conceptualised by Julie Bowe and Jenny Gore in 2007. It involves teachers working in professional learning communities (PLCs) to reflect on their classroom practice through the lens of the quality teaching model. This teacher-led process builds capacity for quality teaching with novice and experienced teachers alike. Following a set of protocols and adhering to essential features of the approach, one PLC member teaches a lesson, observed by all others. The lesson is coded individually and then collaboratively analysed, using the shared language of the model. This poster presentation graphically highlights evidence from several research ...

Developing A Hands-On Food Science Curriculum With Bilingual, Elementary-Aged, Hispanic Heritage Students, Jaime Leia Ragos

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

In the United States alone there are over 48 million cases of foodborne illness, with most of these cases deriving from food cooked in the home (Young 2016). Many themes have been assessed such as confidence, knowledge, habits, taste in food preferences, and societal/social influences (Young 2016). However, when food safety curricula are targeted toward younger populations, including young adults and children, attitudes and behavior change (Mullan 2018 and Young 2016). As there is a lack in home economics education in today’s current curriculum, students and their families may not know food safety behaviors (Finch 2005; Young 2016 ...


Creation And Implementation Of A Flipped Jigsaw Activity To Stimulate Interest In Biochemistry Among Medical Students, Charlene Williams, Susan Perlis, John Gaughan, Sangita Phadtare May 2019

Creation And Implementation Of A Flipped Jigsaw Activity To Stimulate Interest In Biochemistry Among Medical Students, Charlene Williams, Susan Perlis, John Gaughan, Sangita Phadtare

Stratford Campus Research Day

Learner-centered pedagogical methods that are based on clinical application of basic science concepts through active learning and problem solving are shown to be effective for improving knowledge retention. As the clinical relevance of biochemistry is not always apparent to health-profession students, effective teaching of medical biochemistry should highlight the implications of biochemical concepts in pathology, minimize memorization, and make the concepts memorable for long-term retention.

Here, we report the creation and successful implementation of a flipped jigsaw activity that was developed to stimulate interest in learning biochemistry among medical students. The activity combined the elements of a flipped classroom for ...

A Critical Conceptual Dialogue On E. G. White's Admonition: "Not Mere Reflectors", Jay Brand, Randy J. Siebold Mar 2019

A Critical Conceptual Dialogue On E. G. White's Admonition: "Not Mere Reflectors", Jay Brand, Randy J. Siebold

Andrews University Teaching and Learning Conference

White's challenge, that 'Youth should be … thinkers, and not mere reflectors of other men's thoughts' can be misinterpreted. Often, individuals criticize education’s focus on scholarly sources instead of personal creativity. However, to avoid reflecting other men’s thoughts, students must be aware of what those men – and women – have said. In fact, in my understanding, it is impossible to contribute original, fresh ideas and insights WITHOUT awareness of what others have already said. To think originally, one must be familiar with previous ideas; otherwise, s/he will be in danger of merely reflecting the ideas of others ...


Combating The Minimum Mindset: Changing Schools From The Inside, Juliette Dayen Mar 2019

Combating The Minimum Mindset: Changing Schools From The Inside, Juliette Dayen

Andrews University Teaching and Learning Conference

Facilitating change in learning organizations must be approached from a multitude of perspectives. Students are often ignored and uninvolved in improvement efforts. As key participants in schooling practices, students should be involved in change processes. Students can take an active role in developing skills and knowledge to help them thrive in learning environments. This presentation focuses on how students can be supported to develop a growth mindset through a model that could work in multiple learning contexts.

Online Versus Traditional End-Of-Life Care Education In Nursing: An Integrative Literature Review, Emily Wolff Mar 2019

Online Versus Traditional End-Of-Life Care Education In Nursing: An Integrative Literature Review, Emily Wolff

Grace Peterson Nursing Research Colloquium

Abstract

Background: Professional nurses spend more time with patients who are dying than any other health care professional. However, studies show that nurses feel unprepared, or unequipped, to provide adequate end-of-life (EOL) care to these patients, which has directed many organizations to dedicate resources to the development of effective EOL care education programs. The most effective and efficient method for EOL care education delivery is yet to be determined.

Objectives: The purpose of this integrative literature review is to examine the existing research regarding the efficacies of online and traditional EOL care education methods for professional nurses because the reported ...

Multimodal Adventures In Teaching: Individualized Learning, Relationship-Building, And Nurturing A Sense Of Belonging Through Fsd’S Student Life And Writing Centre Videos, Jenna L. Goddard 8197389, Alicia Ashcroft Feb 2019

Multimodal Adventures In Teaching: Individualized Learning, Relationship-Building, And Nurturing A Sense Of Belonging Through Fsd’S Student Life And Writing Centre Videos, Jenna L. Goddard 8197389, Alicia Ashcroft

Teaching Practices Colloquium

The results of the recent Canadian University Survey Consortium (CUSC) survey indicate that, compared to equivalent institutions, TRU students lack a feeling of connection to the campus; thus, growing and nurturing a sense of belonging within our increasingly diverse student body is vital. How does one create or facilitate connection or belonging to places and spaces of learning? Teaching and learning do not always take place in the traditional way within a classroom; in fact, sometimes the best “learning” takes place in unique and unanticipated ways. TRU’s Writer & Storyteller Alicia Ashcroft uses Faculty of Student Development’s Student Life ...

During the 2018-2019 academic year, faculty piloted a problem-based learning (PBL) design in the Introduction to Strategic Studies course to explore how executive-level students: (1) translate knowledge of strategy into performance and (2) how engagement in PBL influenced students’ sense of belonging in the seminar environment using Walton and Cohen’s (2007) Sense of Belonging instrument.


When Homework Management Systems Work Best: The Role Of Tenacity, Kathy K. Archer Jan 2019

When Homework Management Systems Work Best: The Role Of Tenacity, Kathy K. Archer

SoTL Commons Conference

The literature is clear: Homework management systems enhance student learning under some circumstances. What circumstances? Does the topic matter? Does student tenacity matter? This study of 917 online students measured subject matter effect by increase in exam scores for various topics. It measured student tenacity by how many students took advantage of all three homework attempts available to them. The results show the subject matter effect increased as the course went along, with the greatest effect on later exams. This correlated with steadily increasing student tenacity, as more students took advantage of all three homework attempts with each successive module.

Retrieval-Based Learning: A Powerful Way To Improve Learning And Memory, Jeffrey D. Karpicke Jan 2019

Retrieval-Based Learning: A Powerful Way To Improve Learning And Memory, Jeffrey D. Karpicke

SoTL Commons Conference

Recent advances in the cognitive science of learning have important implications for strategies that all learners can use. For example, cognitive research has identified one strategy that promotes complex learning called retrieval practice: Practicing actively reconstructing one’s knowledge while studying has potent effects on long-term learning. Yet when people monitor and regulate their own learning, they often choose to engage in inferior strategies like repetitive reading, and the ultimate consequence is poor learning. This talk provides an overview of our research program on retrieval-based learning. In recent work, we have extended retrieval practice to meaningful learning of complex educational ...

Adult Learners In Higher Education: An Examination Of Academic Experiences, Jyotsna (Josi) M. Kalavar, Ruth Ann Herstek, Charles Ronald Brua

SoTL Commons Conference

Adult learners are a unique student population at high-risk for academic underachievement and dropping out. An online survey was designed to assess preferred pedagogical techniques of as well as to understand perceived barriers that may influence quality of academic learning. Results show a strong preference for classroom discussion, lecture based presentations, and internship opportunities as preferred pedagogical approaches. The lack of flexibility in course offerings, balancing work/life demands, and chronological age were identified as barriers by these students. By better understanding this group, we can be more proactive in our efforts to maximize retention and foster an engaged learning ...
