Connecting To Get Things Done: A Conceptual Model Of The Process Used To Respond To Bias Incidents, Lucy A. Lepeau, Demetri L. Morgan, Hilary B. Zimmerman, J.T. Snipes, Beth A. Marcotte

Demetri L. Morgan, Ph.D.

In this study, we interviewed victims of bias incidents and members of a bias response team to investigate the process the team used to respond to incidents. Incidents included acts of sexism, homophobia, and racism on a large, predominantly White research university in the Midwest. Data were analyzed using a 4-stage coding process. The emergent model focused on the way the bias response team members connected to students, other team members, and colleagues from across campus to respond to the bias incidents. Important tensions that team members navigate also became evident and are depicted in the model. Findings from this ...

Using Mendeley To Support Collaborative Learning In The Classroom, Tehmina Khwaja, Pamela L. Eddy Dec 2014

Using Mendeley To Support Collaborative Learning In The Classroom, Tehmina Khwaja, Pamela L. Eddy

Pamela L. Eddy

The purpose of this study was to explore the use of Mendeley, a free online reference management and academic networking software, as a collaborative tool in the college classroom.  Students in two iterations of a graduate class used Mendeley to collaborate on a policy research project over the course of a semester.  The project involved collaborative critique of an article, finding and annotating additional relevant literature, synthesizing all group articles, and creating individual policy briefs.  We investigated how students used the software, tracking individual contributions and reviewing final student projects.  We used survey data to gauge student experience with Mendeley ...


Lean In Or Opt Out? Career Pathways Of Academic Women, Pamela Eddy, Kelly Ward Dec 2014

Lean In Or Opt Out? Career Pathways Of Academic Women, Pamela Eddy, Kelly Ward

Pamela L. Eddy


Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In has prompted a range of conversations on campus—among women students who are becoming exposed to notions of discrimination, women faculty who are raising issues of equity in work roles and promotion, and women administrators who are trying to reconcile Sandberg’s advice to lean in with the fact that few women lead college campuses. The premise of Lean In is that greater will power and fortitude can enable women to surmount barriers that have prevented them from ascending to top-level positions. In this article, we examine how Sandberg’s call for women’s ...

Retrenchment In Higher Education: Public Perceptions And Marketing Implications, Oscar T. Mcknight, Ronald Paugh, Jamie Waltz, Jordan Mcknight Dec 2014

Retrenchment In Higher Education: Public Perceptions And Marketing Implications, Oscar T. Mcknight, Ronald Paugh, Jamie Waltz, Jordan Mcknight

Oscar T McKnight Ph.D.

Many institutions in higher education are actively engaged in the retrenchment process in order to achieve financial stability. This research examined public perceptions of retrenchment by conducting a series of modified Delphi groups. Results suggest a public awareness and belief that retrenchment will not impact academic or experiential quality. Presented is REDUCE - a retrenchment strategy for university administrators and marketing professionals.


Design In Tourism Education: A Design Anthropology Perspective, Kurt W. Seemann Dec 2014

Design In Tourism Education: A Design Anthropology Perspective, Kurt W. Seemann

Kurt W Seemann

When humans travel they are interacting with a range of digital, spatial, service flow systems and product experiences. These interactions can be perceived as positive or negative. They are usually socially contextualised by expectations, or the delight of being able to share the moment. This chapter develops a conceptual frame for how we may include design in the professional education of tourism graduate’s so they may enhance the human valued experience that people have with the made-world around them. A curriculum in tourism design has a wide pallet to research, develop and teach that may go beyond the traveller ...


Culture In Design, Technology, And Environment: Reflecting On Field Experiences, Kurt W. Seemann Dec 2014

Culture In Design, Technology, And Environment: Reflecting On Field Experiences, Kurt W. Seemann

Kurt W Seemann

Culture is a fuzzy kind of idea. We all point to it when we see it among others, but when asked to place a universal boundary around it to define it as framing much of what we do ourselves, we run into trouble. When we design and develop made worlds with, and for, other cultures, or when we think how we engage in the worlds made by others, the opportunity manifests itself to see how culture can be embedded not only in the choices made to create the artifacts, systems, or symbols but significantly in the socio-cultural and even natural ...


Designing For Cultural Groups And Humanization: Two Ideas From Design Anthropology, Kurt W. Seemann Dec 2014

Designing For Cultural Groups And Humanization: Two Ideas From Design Anthropology, Kurt W. Seemann

Kurt W Seemann

Understanding, using and teaching the link between culture, ecology, and design and technology education can offer a rich and effective strategy for fostering whole student development. This chapter will appeal to educators interested in exploring what a more advanced perspective of design and technology can offer to their students as well as to their own professional enrichment. Where an educational interest lies in how to effectively embrace culture and ecology in design education, the broad field of anthropology presents the most authentic discipline of choice, especially through its sub-discipline of design anthropology. From a hands-on perspective, design anthropologists have been ...


Nurturing Dispositions In Teacher Education Candidates: Challenges Of Identifying And Assessing Dispositions, Samuel J. Smith, Harvey L. Klamm Dec 2014

Nurturing Dispositions In Teacher Education Candidates: Challenges Of Identifying And Assessing Dispositions, Samuel J. Smith, Harvey L. Klamm

Samuel James Smith

Teacher preparation programs identify knowledge, skills, and dispositions as desired outcomes in preparing candidates to impact student learning. Of the three outcomes, dispositions are by far the most subjective and challenging to identify and assess. This paper outlines the process by which Liberty University developed its dispositional model, known by the acronym SCRIP: social responsibility, commitment, reflective practice, integrity, and professionalism. It details how the dispositions, which are based on the Fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5, are assessed, and analyzes the results of candidate development in each of the five areas. Implications for Christian schools are presented.


Common School Movement, Samuel J. Smith Dec 2014

Common School Movement, Samuel J. Smith

Samuel James Smith

“Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.” This quote by Horace Mann has challenged many to take on a cause and to see it through. Horace Mann’s cause was the common school movement. Many claim that, were it not for Mann’s skillful politicking and persuasive arguments, there would be no free public schooling in the United States today. Movements, however,—though often led by an individual—rarely occur simply because an individual person wished them to be so, and this was also true with the common school movement. Although there is no denying ...


Philosophy Of Ancient Athens, Samuel J. Smith Dec 2014

Philosophy Of Ancient Athens, Samuel J. Smith

Samuel James Smith

“Know Thyself! The unexamined Life is not worth Living.” Whether you agree or not with Socrates’ claim that “the unexamined life is not worth living,” you cannot refute that Socrates, this ancient Athenian who lived four centuries before Christ, made a huge impact on the fields of philosophy and of education. Known primarily for his teaching method, Socrates was accused of riling up the youth of his time. When someone challenges others to think differently than the traditional ways that have been passed down, it sometimes upsets the apple cart, the power structure, the political system. And that’s exactly ...

Advocating For Mother Earth In The Undergraduate Classroom: Uniting Twenty-First Century Technologies, Local Resources, Art, And Activism To Explore Our Place In Nature, Christina Triezenberg, Ilse Schweitzer Vandonkelaar Mar 2014

Advocating For Mother Earth In The Undergraduate Classroom: Uniting Twenty-First Century Technologies, Local Resources, Art, And Activism To Explore Our Place In Nature, Christina Triezenberg, Ilse Schweitzer Vandonkelaar

Ilse A Schweitzer VanDonkelaar

Despite the growing evidence of humanity’s impact on the natural world and the urgent need to shape citizens who understand the impact that their choices and actions have on their local and global environments, colleges and universities throughout the United States have been slow to add environmental education as a core component of their undergraduate curricula. Harnessing our shared interest in environment issues and the humanities, we designed and taught an experimental course in environmental literature for the honors program at Western Michigan University that we hope will become a template of what is possible in postsecondary environmental education ...
