Enriching Higher Education Training Through Values And Social Engagement, Gus Gregorutti Dec 2014

Enriching Higher Education Training Through Values And Social Engagement, Gus Gregorutti

Gus Gregorutti

The present study starts describing the relevance of university mission statements and how they have been interacting with the social demands throughout the history of higher education. This way, the recent development of a knowledge economy has strongly impacted universities that look for ways to produce and commercialize ideas (second and third missions). The increasing accreditation agencies and regional and international rankings have helped to reinforce these processes. This trend has created a situation where isomorphic mechanisms are pressing universities to align themselves with models that do not always fit a wide spectrum of them. In addition, this chapter underlines ...


Transdisciplinary Educational Design: Creating A Structured Space For Critical Reflection On E-Learning Assessment Practices, Meg O'Reilly, Allan Ellis Feb 2013

Transdisciplinary Educational Design: Creating A Structured Space For Critical Reflection On E-Learning Assessment Practices, Meg O'Reilly, Allan Ellis

Dr Meg O'Reilly

Many academic staff are experiencing the multiple challenges and pressures of increased teaching loads, e-learning design and developments, ongoing research including the scholarship of teaching, as well as fiscal accountability. No wonder most lecturers have little time or energy left for the long-valued processes of critical reflection. This paper describes an educational design initiative of three cycles involving academic staff from a range of disciplines who came together with reference librarians and technical support staff in a series of meetings to reflect in a structured action learning process on their practices of designing assessment for e-learning. Creating a structured space ...


Creating Time For Research At Marshall University, Deanna Mader, Chong W. Kim Sep 2012

Creating Time For Research At Marshall University, Deanna Mader, Chong W. Kim

Deanna R. D. Mader

Creating time for research is important, yet difficult. Creating large blocks of dedicated research time is nearly impossible. It is critical, therefore, that the institution encourages all levels to work in a coordinated effort to assist faculty in accessing those precious minutes and smaller blocks of time. At the departmental level the Management and Marketing Division conducts a Research and Teaching (R&T) Forum six to eight times per academic year. The forum allows the division’s 28 faculty members to brainstorm, find areas of similar interests, combine research efforts, and present a “test run” before submission to a journal ...

Case Studies Of Online Assessment, Meg O'Reilly, Sue Bennett, Michael J. Keppell Oct 2010

Case Studies Of Online Assessment, Meg O'Reilly, Sue Bennett, Michael J. Keppell

Dr Meg O'Reilly

This paper outlines the progress to date of a project to compile, analyse and share examples of innovative online assessment activities using; online testing; teamwork and collaboration; simulations and role plays, and dialogue with experts and across cultures. The aim of this research is to provide teaching academics and educational developers with examples of assessment strategies that have been successfully applied in higher education, and to derive a number of key principles about online assessment that will be useful for future research. The project involves case studies from two Australian universities, which have been used to develop an initial set ...

Research Distribution Matters: The Boise State University Strategy, Marilyn K. Moody

Boise State University is developing a “research distribution strategy” in order to provide greater access to Boise State University research for students, researchers, Idaho citizens and the general public. This presentation describes the major elements of that strategy. Key elements of the strategy include --Campuswide Research Distribution Policy and Strategy --Institutional Repository+ (Boise State University ScholarWorks (scholarworks.boisestate.edu) using the Digital Commons/SelectedWorks platform) --Faculty Education --Campus Wide Initiative --Open Access Electronic Theses and Dissertations


Faculty Influence On Fraternal Residential Learning Communities, Charles G. Eberly, Andrew F. Wall, Brian Warren May 2007

Faculty Influence On Fraternal Residential Learning Communities, Charles G. Eberly, Andrew F. Wall, Brian Warren

Charles G. Eberly

This paper described a survey of fraternity members' satisfaction with their experiences in a Residential Learning Community within Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. RLCs include a faculty member who has an office within the chapter facility, who teaches a course for credit within the chapter, and who supervises educational programming within the chapter. Chapters who attain RLC status must apply for re-accreditation as an RLC on a periodic basis.


Elements Of Credible Research, Charles G. Eberly Aug 2005

Elements Of Credible Research, Charles G. Eberly

Charles G. Eberly

This paper is developed from a speech I gave before the 100th anniversary convention of the National Panhellenic Association. The organization was concerned about the questionable ethics of articles published about the college fraternity and sorority at that time.


Lessons Learned From A Study Of Fraternity Advising, Charles G. Eberly Feb 1999

Lessons Learned From A Study Of Fraternity Advising, Charles G. Eberly

Charles G. Eberly

This paper presented lessons I learned from a study of fraternity advising. It summarized the major themes I found in a qualitative study of seven successful fraternity advisors who worked with seven successful fraternity chapters on seven difference campuses. The work was focused on finding a model of excellence with which to generate guidelines for advising college fraternities at the chaper level.


Fraters In Facultate: Models Of Excellence In Fraternity Advising, Charles G. Eberly Mar 1997

Fraters In Facultate: Models Of Excellence In Fraternity Advising, Charles G. Eberly

Charles G. Eberly

This paper is the first of a number I planned to carry out on models of excellent in fraternity chapter advising. I am still working on the qualitative data I collected a decade and a half later. The thesis is that if one focused on models of excellence in fraternity operations to learn the manner in which successful leaders and organizations achieve their objectives, much greater progress would be made than focusing on the reduction of negative issues and problems such as alcohol abuse, sexual abuse, and hazing.

This paper is a report on a survey of sexually aggressive experiences as self-reported by a large sample of undergraduate students attending Eastern Illinois University. The results of the paper were later used to reduce the incidence of sexual violence at the institution.


Residence Hall Program And Perception Of University Environment, Charles G. Eberly, Eugene J. Cech Jan 1968

Residence Hall Program And Perception Of University Environment, Charles G. Eberly, Eugene J. Cech

Charles G. Eberly

I have always maintained that at-risk students were often blamed for their lack of success, rather than supported to overcome their prior educational challenges. As a second year residence hall director I had the privilege of working in a building with two distant wings. With the support of my mentor, Dr. Eugene J. Cech, Director of Testing, we developed a residence life program designed to assist summer lower-quarter high school graduates to be successful in college. The quality of residence life does make a difference. The journal, College Student Survey, no longer appears to be published.
