Educating For Complexity In Nursing Practice: A Baccalaureate Curriculum Innovation, Patricia Rosenau, Lorraine Watson, Leianne Vye-Rogers, Martie Dobbs

Quality Advancement in Nursing Education - Avancées en formation infirmière

This expository article describes an overview of salient changes made to a baccalaureate curriculum to meet the ever changing demands of health care, professional nursing practice, and post-secondary education. The innovations were embedded in the tenets of complexity science, mandates of our professional practice, the contextual relevance of the curriculum and the scholarship of integrative learning. The curriculum is present and future oriented, evidence-based and relevant. The curricular structure shifts content and pedagogy from the traditional stance. The planned and integrative semester course design is greater than the sum of its parts; course content is carefully chosen to illustrate the ...


You Kind Of Have To Prove It: Gender Microaggressions Within The Lived Experiences Of Women In Engineering, Crystal Rose Diaz-Espinoza Dec 2015

You Kind Of Have To Prove It: Gender Microaggressions Within The Lived Experiences Of Women In Engineering, Crystal Rose Diaz-Espinoza

Doctoral Dissertations

This intrinsic case study explored the lived experiences of women within three engineering majors at a mid-sized institution in the Mid-Atlantic using gender microaggressions (Nadal, 2010; Sue, 2007) as a theoretical lens. Data included individual interviews with 28 participants as well as document review from Web pages and observations from physical spaces within the campus engineering building. Data analysis resulted in seven themes in congruence with Sue’s (2007) taxonomy of gender microaggressions and further established the three levels of gender microaggressions distinguished by Nadal (2010). Findings also revealed that barriers within engineering were less visible or outwardly sexist, and ...


Exploring The Differences Between Pre-Service Teachers' Analyses Of Various Informal Reading Inventory Results In The Elementary Grades, Tara A. Miller Dec 2015

Exploring The Differences Between Pre-Service Teachers' Analyses Of Various Informal Reading Inventory Results In The Elementary Grades, Tara A. Miller

HIM 1990-2015

Reading is a fundamental skill in our modern society; being able to read with comprehension and fluency is an important skill in all core academic subjects. Reading teachers are charged with the task to analyze student data in order to drive their instructional decisions. Informal Reading Inventories (IRIs) are one type of an informal reading assessment that teachers can use in the classroom to learn about student reading behaviors and drive instruction. Informal Reading Inventories assess fluency and comprehension. Research suggests that fluency and comprehension have a reciprocal relationship; meaning, if you improve one skill, you improve the other skill ...


Influential Factors In Undergraduate Nursing Research Analysis, Anunay Bhattacharya, Marian Tabi Nov 2015

Influential Factors In Undergraduate Nursing Research Analysis, Anunay Bhattacharya, Marian Tabi

Anunay Bhattacharya

Undergraduate college students often tend to view research courses with negative attitudes. These negative attitudes have well documented in numerous studies. Prior research studies have documented that negative attitudes toward a course have been found to serve as barriers to learning.  In addition, these negative attitudes influence the amount of effort one is willing to invest in learning a subject.  Studies have shown that research experience in undergraduate education is associated with graduate education and future career in research. Nursing students in many undergraduate baccalaureate degree programs are often required to take a course in research to understand and utilize ...


An Exploration Of The Reasons And Purposes Of Non-Japanese Undergraduate Students For Taking A Beginners’ Japanese Language Course, Asuka H. Mashav Oct 2015

An Exploration Of The Reasons And Purposes Of Non-Japanese Undergraduate Students For Taking A Beginners’ Japanese Language Course, Asuka H. Mashav

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This study took place at Florida International University (FIU), a large public research university in Miami, Florida and one of largest Hispanic serving institutions in the United States. The purpose of this study was to explore the motivations of non-Japanese undergraduate students for taking a beginners’ Japanese language course. In-depth one-hour semi-structured interviews were conducted with 12 participants before the fall semester of 2014 (Phase I) and 10 after the semester (Phase II). Two major themes emerged from the inductive analysis of the data: attraction to Japanese culture and utility of using the Japanese language. Sub-themes for attraction to Japanese ...

A Student Perspective On The Causes Of The Commercialization Of Higher Education And The Movement Of Professors Away From Undergraduate Teaching Towards Research And The Effect Those Two Movements Have On Undergraduate Learning And Education, Jacob Richman Aug 2015

A Student Perspective On The Causes Of The Commercialization Of Higher Education And The Movement Of Professors Away From Undergraduate Teaching Towards Research And The Effect Those Two Movements Have On Undergraduate Learning And Education, Jacob Richman

Visions for the Liberal Arts

There has been a continuous movement of faculty at institutions of higher education away from a focus on teaching undergraduate students towards individual and specialized research and graduate teaching. This paper will attempt to explore some of the apparent driving factors for this movement as well the impact that it has on undergraduate learning. These factors include, but are not limited to, professorial desires to spend more time on research and therefore less time on teaching, particularly undergraduate teaching; the pressure to use research as a way to obtain funding and income separate from the institution whom the professors are ...

Moral Development Of Undergraduate Business Students: Online Vs. Residential Programs, Kevin L. Rawls Jul 2015

Moral Development Of Undergraduate Business Students: Online Vs. Residential Programs, Kevin L. Rawls

Kevin L. Rawls

Research related to moral reasoning and development has been increasing over the past decade as a result of the business-related scandals of the early 2000’s. Education has been shown to have a strong correlation to the moral development of individuals. Additionally, the rise in online learning has brought a new dynamic to the cognitive moral development of future business leaders. The problem addressed in this study is how an online program impacts the moral reasoning development of undergraduate business students. This study issued the DIT survey to senior-level undergraduate students declared as business majors from a face-to-face and online ...

Administration Of Team-Based Senior Capstone Course: Lessons Learned And Future Challenges, Gretchen A. Mosher

Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Presentations

Senior capstone courses provide an important mechanism for students to integrate and apply technical knowledge and skills they have acquired in previous coursework. Additionally, students are required to master a variety of professional skills, including teamwork, unstructured task completion, and project management to facilitate successful completion of a capstone course. Faculty also play an important role in the success of capstone courses. Sourcing and grading projects are common challenges for instructors. This paper will outline the challenges and best practices learned in the development and implementation of a senior-level capstone course in agricultural engineering technology, based on qualitative data gathered ...

Overlooked And Overshadowed: Exploring The Multiple Dimensions Of Identity In Traditionally-Aged Undergraduate Student-Parents, Paula A. Caldwell Apr 2015

Overlooked And Overshadowed: Exploring The Multiple Dimensions Of Identity In Traditionally-Aged Undergraduate Student-Parents, Paula A. Caldwell

Educational Administration: Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research

Student-parents are a rapidly growing student population, consisting of more than 20% of undergraduate college students today (National Center for Education Statistics, 2012). Research about student-parents has historically focused on graduate students and adult learners, yet these studies overlook traditionally-aged undergraduate student-parents who constitute over one-quarter of the student-parent population. Traditional four-year institutions continue to dismiss the needs and experiences of student-parents as these colleges are primarily designed to serve traditional undergraduate students with no major external responsibilities. As such, the traditionally-aged undergraduate student-parent population is left underserved and unsupported in their pursuit of education. This study contributes to the ...


Design, Implementation, And Evaluation Of An Online Systemic Human Anatomy Course With Laboratory, Stefanie M. Attardi Apr 2015

Design, Implementation, And Evaluation Of An Online Systemic Human Anatomy Course With Laboratory, Stefanie M. Attardi

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Systemic Human Anatomy is a full credit, upper year undergraduate course with a prosection laboratory demonstration at Western University Canada. To meet enrolment demands beyond the physical space of the laboratory facility, a fully online section was developed to run concurrently with the traditional face-to-face (F2F) course in 2012-13. Lectures for F2F students were broadcast in live and archived format to online students using Blackboard Collaborate virtual classroom. Online laboratories were delivered in the virtual classroom by teaching assistants (TAs) with three dimensional (3D) anatomical models (Netter’s 3D Interactive Anatomy).

Student performance outcomes and student and instructor perceptions of ...


Increase Credit Allotment In Nur 344 Health Assessment, The College At Brockport, College Senate Apr 2015

Increase Credit Allotment In Nur 344 Health Assessment, The College At Brockport, College Senate

College Senate Resolutions

The nursing program currently has two credits allotted to Health Assessment (NUR 344 Health Assessment, 1 credit; and NUR 345 Health Assessment Clinical, 1 credit). The nursing department is requesting a one credit increase to NUR 344 (the didactic portion of the requirement). (1) Increasing the credit allotment will allow to add the needed class time to teach the content required in this course. The content has increased in amount with the changing health care environment. (2) Students will be better prepared to enter their hospital clinical experiences and will not spend precious clinical time trying to learn health assessment ...
