A Cooperative Approach To The N-Solution Problem, Sean Murray Apr 2012

A Cooperative Approach To The N-Solution Problem, Sean Murray

Chemistry and Physics Undergraduate Theses

Collaboration is an ever-present element in scientific research today. Even within laboratories and research teams, colleagues need to analyze, interpret, and disseminate research outcomes individually. Despite this need, the interdependence of scientists is seldom emphasized. We have added collaborative skill to the learning outcomes of a qualitative analysis laboratory exercise. Student collaboration, interdependence and enjoyment were measured using an anonymous survey and showed a marked increase over the control group in all areas. Presented here is the design with results from the lab protocol testing phase.


Using The Personalized System Of Instruction (Psi) Model And The Forensic Laboratory To Modify And Improve The Basic Speech Course, Manda Hicks Apr 1997

Using The Personalized System Of Instruction (Psi) Model And The Forensic Laboratory To Modify And Improve The Basic Speech Course, Manda Hicks

Communication Studies Undergraduate Theses

The purpose of this paper is to develop a blueprint for modifying and improving the teaching of basic speech at the college level by applying methodologies used in college forensics coaching. Forensics coaching is too broad to serve as a model. Instead, one specific approach to Forensics coaching will serve as the paradigm for this research: the Personalized System of Instruction (PSI) model in the Forensic laboratory. Although both speech communication and competitive college forensics programs have existed side by side for decades, surprisingly little effort has been made to incorporate the successful forensics coaching strategies into the college speech ...

The Case For Developing And Implementing Proactive Crisis Management Planning At Carroll College, Kurt Foeller

Communication Studies Undergraduate Theses

It is early in the morning at a men's dormitory on a college campus. The residents are in a quiet slumber after a typical weeknight of fun. Suddenly, the calm is shattered by two shotgun blasts and the sound of someone running down the hall for the nearest exit. Two freshmen lay bleeding on the floor. Someone calls 911, campus security, and then the college administrators. Everyone wants answers. Hundreds of students wait anxiously near the scene.

The media will soon arrive and probably won't leave until the troubling questions are answered: Who did it? Who is dead ...

Compliance-Gaining Strategies: Resistance In The College Classroom, Mark Meister

Communication Studies Undergraduate Theses

The focus of this project is the study of compliance-gaining communication strategies used by college instructors within the classroom environment. In order to effectively illustrate the relevance of compliance-gaining strategies in human communication, a discussion of behavior alteration techniques used by both experienced, and individuals preparing to become teachers will be presented. Since the students are the target variables, which most of the effect is directed, a discussion and analysis of both destructive and constructive student resistance strategies is also included in the discussion.

Bishop John Patrick Carroll And Carroll College, William Ogle

History Undergraduate Theses

Perhaps the Diocese of Helena will never again be led by such a brilliant educator and builder as John Patrick Carroll. This man through his enormous personal drive changed the diocese from a struggling mission in the West to one of the best organized and equipped in the United States.

D., the second Bishop of Helena, was born at Dubuque, Iowa, February 22, 1864. He was the son of Martin and Catherine O'Farrell ...
