It Works For Me, Too! More Shared Tips For Effective Teaching, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe Nov 2011

It Works For Me, Too! More Shared Tips For Effective Teaching, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

In the four years since our first book on teaching, we have noticed both on our campus and around the country a new emphasis on the instructor as teacher (vs. scholar). We have read books on the subject, attended the prestigious Lilly Conference, helped establish a Teaching & Learning Center on our campus (Hal served as its first director), and written for new journals focusing on pedagogy. It Works For Me, Too! is our contribution to the Renaissance in College Pedagogy, our attempt to fuel this brightening interest in effective teaching. Like its predecessor, this book is a compilation of tips from workers in the collegiate trenches, but this time our contributors (some volunteers, some drafted) reflect the national interest in this subject and come from all around the country. We begin with a few theoretical approaches, but the major focus of IWFMT (not exactly a memorable acronym) is that average day in the classroom and what momentary magic some instructor has injected into the mix to make the experience much more than average. Sometimes the advice is general, but usually it’s specific. While the advisor may be in a different discipline than you, we have every confidence that you will be able to use this information in your area. After all, most of us weren’t born good teachers ®¢ we made ourselves that. During an observation last fall, Charlie watched as an instructor had her students reproduce exactly what Keats described on that famed Grecian urn. He went immediately into his Am Lit I class and had his students draw up the floor plan for the turret in which Lady Rowena is suddenly transformed into the lost love Ligeia. Only when his class could actually picture that pentagonal structure could they begin to see what magic might have transpired that fateful night. The best tips aren’t only shared; they are borrowed, reshaped, and adapted to one’s own philosophy, and, as John D. MacDonald once said about good writing making more good readers, that reworking makes us all much better teachers. So, read and adapt. Show Less

Simple: A Proposal For A Synchronous Internet Music Performance Learning Environment, Fredrick Miller Dec 2002

Simple: A Proposal For A Synchronous Internet Music Performance Learning Environment, Fredrick Miller

Fred Miller

This paper proposes an Internet based e-learning environment for building ensemble playing proficiency for musicians. With the growing availability of broadband connections, the Internet offers new opportunities for musicians to play together synchronously from disparate locations. An e-learning environment for ensemble music performance would facilitate and simplify the creation of ensemble performance skills by offering a number of services for musicians. It would emphasize the learning of tacit musical knowledge particularly important to improvisational music performances. The heart of this e-learning initiative is the use of a proposed new tool set to enable real-time synchronous rehearsals among musicians at different ...

The Images Of God Of Middle School Adolescents, Veronica Rose Duffy Nov 2002

The Images Of God Of Middle School Adolescents, Veronica Rose Duffy

Theses

The aim of this thesis is to identify the images of God of middle secondary school adolescents (14-17 years) and the influences shaping these images. It intends to compare and contrast the images of God of the participants, with those of Catholic theology; to explore the extent to which the findings about adolescents' images of God contained in this study, support or challenge those of a range of literature in the field of adolescent spirituality; to report on some of the formative factors that shape middle adolescents' images of God; and to propose implications for religious education arising from the ...


The Changing Role Of Ellen White In Seventh-Day Adventism With Reference To Sociocultural Standards At Avondale College, Michael L. Chamberlain Nov 2002

The Changing Role Of Ellen White In Seventh-Day Adventism With Reference To Sociocultural Standards At Avondale College, Michael L. Chamberlain

Theses Non-Avondale

The core tenet of this thesis is that sociocultural standards at Avondale College have changed dramatically since the Ellen White period, to the extent that a general paradigm shift may have evidenced, although her writings appear to remain the official standard for the Church at senior administration level up til 2001. The administration has steadfastly maintained through the Church creed of Twenty-seven fundamentals - last updated in 1980 - that Ellen White is a prophetess of God. She is the authoritative and inspired commentator on scripture and in effect has been used as the arbiter for decisions on Church doctrine and sociocultural ...
