Ethics And School, Arthur Lang Nov 2006

Ethics And School, Arthur Lang

Arthur Lang

My philosophy of education maintains that a liberal education in mathematics, science, history, and literature cultivates reason and knowledge, developing the ability for a student to make practical choices and most importantly, the moral sensibilities of the student. The ethics of the school is essential.

Expeditionary Blended Learning: New Opportunities And Lessons From The United Kingdom, Ian R. Mcandrew, Indra R. Sinka, Michael S. Wills Nov 2006

Expeditionary Blended Learning: New Opportunities And Lessons From The United Kingdom, Ian R. Mcandrew, Indra R. Sinka, Michael S. Wills

Ian R. McAndrew

Recent experiences in live course delivery at ERAU's UK campus, combined with dramatic
changes in the operational deployment tempo of US military forces assigned at these bases,
creates both challenges and opportunities. Exploiting experiences with blended learning at The
Open University, traditional learning at the University of Hertfordshire and other UK universities,
and teaching concepts in use within the UK's military staff colleges leads to the proposed
"Expeditionary" model for blended learning within the ERAU European Region. This model can
deliver enhanced student involvement and increased enrollments, provided suitable changes in
ERAU's underlying business model can be ...

Learning To Lead: The College Experiences Of Women University Presidents, Susan R. Madsen Nov 2006

Learning To Lead: The College Experiences Of Women University Presidents, Susan R. Madsen

Susan R. Madsen

Although developing leadership is an important topic in the higher education today, the percentage of women found in high leadership positions remains quite low. In fact, little has been published about how high-level women leaders actually developed. This workshop will present the results of two qualitative research studies exploring how 10 women university presidents and 10 women governors became effective leaders, with a particular focus on influential events, individuals, activities, and opportunities during their undergraduate and graduate educational experiences.

Construction Trades Academy At Lakewood High School, Arthur Lang Nov 2006

Construction Trades Academy At Lakewood High School, Arthur Lang

Arthur Lang

Small Schools are schools within schools, autonomous of their district and the larger school building principal in which they reside. They are distinct from one another, focused and committed to equity. They are made up of an interdisciplinary team of teachers that share a few hundred or less students in common for instruction. Giving students an opportunity to engage in the construction industry in their home-town will integrate real-world skills into their study of mathematics and connect their lives to their schools and community, making achievment and graduation more meaningful.

Characterizing Students’ Thinking: Algebraic Inequalities And Equations, Kien H. Lim Nov 2006

Characterizing Students’ Thinking: Algebraic Inequalities And Equations, Kien H. Lim

Kien H Lim

This paper presents the findings of a study that explores the viability of using students’ act of anticipating as a means to characterize the way students think while solving problems in algebra. Two types of anticipating acts were identified: predicting a result and foreseeing an action. These acts were characterized using Harel’s framework, which involves the concepts of mental act, way of understanding, and way of thinking. Categories for characterizing acts of predicting and foreseeing were identified and developed based on thirteen 11th graders’ responses to problems involving algebraic inequalities and equations. The quality of students’ acts of predicting ...

Opportunity In A Democratic Society: Race And Economic Status In Higher Education, Patricia Pelfrey, Richard Atkinson Oct 2006

Opportunity In A Democratic Society: Race And Economic Status In Higher Education, Patricia Pelfrey, Richard Atkinson

Richard Atkinson

In July 1995, the University of California\'s Board of Regents voted to ban consideration of race and ethnicity in admissions and employment—a ban that was extended to all state agencies when the voters of California approved Proposition 209 in November 1996. This paper discusses the national controversy over affirmative action and analyzes the experience of the University of California as a case study in how an elite public university responded to the end of nearly three decades of affirmative action. It concludes that profound social and demographic change in American society since the 1960s, especially the growth of ...


The National Review Of School Music Education : What Is The Present State Of Music Education In Schools?, Sharon Lierse Oct 2006

The National Review Of School Music Education : What Is The Present State Of Music Education In Schools?, Sharon Lierse

Dr. Sharon Lierse

In November, 2005 a landmark government report entitled the National Review of School Music Education was released. The report found that there was a great variability in the quality of music education in schools. It was acknowledged that although there are some excellent music programs in schools, there is 'cycles of neglect and inequity' and greater support is required for teachers and the subject itself. The report acknowledged the influence of recent curriculum developments in Australia including integrating the arts into one subject. The paper discusses issues arising from the report and how it has impacted music in Australian schools ...

The Case For An Australian Certificate Of Education, Geoff N. Masters Oct 2006

The Case For An Australian Certificate Of Education, Geoff N. Masters

Prof Geoff Masters AO

The Commonwealth Department of Education, Science and Training on May 2005 commissioned the Australian Council for Educational Research to investigate and report on models and implementation arrangements for an Australian Certificate of Education. There are ten different certificates currently available across the six states and two territories of Australia that provide a senior secondary school qualification. The first recommendation made by the Review is for national agreement on what should be taught in each school system. The second recommendation is for students across Australia to be assessed against the same standards. This requires the development of natural so-called ‘achievement standards ...

The Paperless Accounting Classroom: The Perceptions And Experiences Of Students In A Newly Designed Course, Steve Teeter, Susan R. Madsen, Jason Hughes, Brent Eager Oct 2006

The Paperless Accounting Classroom: The Perceptions And Experiences Of Students In A Newly Designed Course, Steve Teeter, Susan R. Madsen, Jason Hughes, Brent Eager

Susan R. Madsen

Although financial accounting practices in business have capitalized on the use of technology, this technology has not been fully integrated in higher education for accounting students. While traditional accounting courses laboriously involve rote transcription of debits and credits, educational technology in accounting courses may prove inherently beneficial. Faculty members designed and offered a paperless accounting course that utilized a variety of technologies. This study explored student perceptions regarding the satisfaction and effectiveness of three of these technologies: 1) the Classroom Performance System (CPS) response pad (clicker) from eInstruction.com, 2) PC Tablet (teacher use); and 3) WebCT. This study analyzes ...

Literacy In The First Three Years Of School : A Longitudinal Investigation, Marion Meiers, Siek Toon Khoo Sep 2006

Literacy In The First Three Years Of School : A Longitudinal Investigation, Marion Meiers, Siek Toon Khoo

Marion Meiers

The ACER Longitudinal Literacy and Numeracy Study (LLANS) was designed to follow the growth in literacy and numeracy of a single cohort of students across the years of primary school. A sample of 1000 students in 100 schools formed the cohort for the study, which commenced in 1999. A linked set of literacy assessment tasks focused on key aspects of literacy was developed for the LLANS. Assessment data collected across the years of primary school provided information needed to construct a long LLANS literacy scale covering the full range of proficiency. The scale was used to measure change and track ...


Modelling Mathematics Problem Solving Item Responses Using A Multidimensional Irt Model, Margaret Wu, Ray Adams Sep 2006

Modelling Mathematics Problem Solving Item Responses Using A Multidimensional Irt Model, Margaret Wu, Ray Adams

Prof Ray Adams

This research examined students' responses to mathematics problem- solving tasks and applied a general multidimensional IRT model at the response category level. In doing so, cognitive processes were identified and modelled through item response modelling to extract more information than would be provided using conventional practices in scoring items. More specifically, the study consisted of two parts. The first part involved the development of a mathematics problem-solving framework that was theoretically grounded, drawing upon research in mathematics education and cognitive psychology. The framework was then used as the basis for item development. The second part of the research involved the ...

La Estructura Del Sistema De Educación Superior Como Factor De Acceso Y Equidad, Jesús F. Galaz-Fontes, Juan J. Sevilla-García Sep 2006

La Estructura Del Sistema De Educación Superior Como Factor De Acceso Y Equidad, Jesús F. Galaz-Fontes, Juan J. Sevilla-García

Jesús Francisco Galaz Fontes

Este trabajo señala que los retos de aumentar la cobertura y equidad de la educación superior deben ser vistos a nivel sistémico y no como la cruzada particular de una o unas cuantas instituciones. Se enfatiza, asimismo, la necesidad de promover la diversidad institucional como una estrategia para aumentar la cobertura y equidad del sistema de educación superior. Por último, se subraya la necesidad de fortalecer el financiamiento de las instituciones de educación superior mediante un esquema que acepte que contar con una educación superior diferenciada y de calidad demanda no escatimar recursos financieros dentro del contexto de las posibilidades ...


Humanizing And Establishing Presence In An Online Course: The Role Of Introductory Videos In Distance Learning, Paula Jones, Maryann Kolloff Sep 2006

Humanizing And Establishing Presence In An Online Course: The Role Of Introductory Videos In Distance Learning, Paula Jones, Maryann Kolloff

Paula Jones

Some faculty may find it difficult, if not impossible, to provide a similar classroom experience online as is provided typically in a face to face class. Faculty members can find it even more difficult to establish an instructional relationship with students in an online course as they do in a face-to-face course. Online learning is known to be more solitary and students report that they feel somewhat disconnected from the class when they take a course online. The challenge in designing online courses is for faculty members to establish their teaching presence by humanizing the online classroom experience for their ...
