Occupational Therapy | Graduate Capstone Presentations

Access to current, evidence-based health information for older adults (OAs) is an important step to the promotion of health and wellness for all age groups, including OAs. Since the Internet is easily accessible and is being used more frequently by OAs, an effective way to convey relevant up-to-date health is through a website devoted to the dissemination of health promotion information tailored for OAs, including tips for integrating healthy habits into their lifestyle. Dominican University of California’s (DUC) Healthy Aging website contains relevant and evidence-based research, including activities and local community based programs that promote healthy aging on the ...

A Collaborative Approach To School-Based Occupational Therapy Sensorimotor Programs, Emily Garnica, Brooke Czuleger, Jessica Phung, Maciej Rzepka

Occupational Therapy | Graduate Capstone Presentations

In the past decade, the prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Intellectual Disabilities (ID) has increased. Sensory processing is an area of need for individuals with ASD and ID that requires specialized intervention services. In best practices, these services are delivered by an interdisciplinary team, often consisting of an occupational therapist, speech language pathologist, board certified behavior analyst, and special education teacher. There has been limited research examining interdisciplinary collaboration between professionals on the team. The purpose of this study was to empirically examine the interdisciplinary team practices at a special education center. This research employed interview methods and ...

What Are The Best Universities In The Nation, And Why?, Taylor Finn Dec 2016

What Are The Best Universities In The Nation, And Why?, Taylor Finn

Honors Projects and Posters

This project is an economists approach to ranking universities in the United States. The goal of this research was twofold. First, I aimed to assign a market based quality measure to 950 universities. This was accomplished by using NACE data from 2013 to calculate a weighted average of salaries for each university. This is what graduates should receive on average after graduation. We then used PayScale data from 2013 to find out what graduates from each university actually made. The difference between what they should receive and actually receive equals the quality value. Second, I analyzed how specific university attributes ...

Eyes On The Prize: Delivering Archival Content With Synchronized Transcripts In Hydra, Irene Taylor, Shannon Davis

Central Plains Network for Digital Asset Management

Regarded as the definitive work on the Civil Rights Movement, the documentary series, Eyes on the Prize, has been seen by millions since its PBS debut in 1987. However, what remains unseen is the nearly 85 hours of interview outtakes that provide further insight into the series’ original stories of struggle, resistance, and perseverance. Through the Eyes on the Prize Digitization and Reassembly project, funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, Washington University Libraries has made the complete, never-before-seen interviews and TEI XML encoded, synchronized transcripts freely accessible through its newly developed Hydra digital repository.

The Importance Of Hand Washing On Regional Campus, Katelynn R. Dowdy Nov 2016

The Importance Of Hand Washing On Regional Campus, Katelynn R. Dowdy

Scholars Week

Hand washing is when you wet your hands under warm water, add soap and rub hands together for 20 seconds or longer, rinse, dry with paper towel, and finally turn off running water with that paper towel you just dried your hands off with. Hand washing is something that helps prevent the spread of germs that lead to illness. This is a health problem that could anywhere and everywhere in the community, but I specifically looked into the Paducah-Murray regional campus.

Photovoice is a process where members of a community take pictures that give some insight on what they believe ...


Photovoice Of Obesity On Murray State University's Campus, Karley Wray, Melissa Godby Nov 2016

Photovoice Of Obesity On Murray State University's Campus, Karley Wray, Melissa Godby

Scholars Week

The issue we decided to discuss on campus using Photovoice was obesity. Obesity is becoming a very big topic that we all need to start focusing on. Obesity is defined as having a BMI at or above 30. This is becoming more common with our cultural change. We are becoming more fast food eaters and are not exercising as much as we should. It is even getting worse on college campuses. We all knew of what was called the freshmen 15, but now it is becoming a four year 15. It is becoming more common for college students to become ...

Let There Be Light: Does Light Influence Transition Behavior?, Shelbie L. Crowe Ms. Nov 2016

Let There Be Light: Does Light Influence Transition Behavior?, Shelbie L. Crowe Ms.

Posters-at-the-Capitol

Let there be light: Does light influence transition behavior?

Typical classroom transitions include changing textbooks, rotating between learning centers, and leaving the classroom. Instructional time may be lost during transitions. When students move between structured activities, their unstructured, transition time often becomes an opportunity for misbehavior. Students frequently become distracted, begin talking, or wander around the classroom. Handling transitions is an aspect of classroom management that is often difficult for preservice teachers and new teachers. When trying to teach rules and procedures, there is a struggle to find balance between establishing rules and procedures and the need to move through ...

Technology Use In Secondary Chemistry And Physics Classrooms In Kentucky, Justin M. Elswick

Posters-at-the-Capitol

As the presence of technology grows, so does its importance and usefulness to chemistry and physics education. This study focused on how technology is being used in secondary chemistry and physics classrooms across Kentucky and its perceived classroom effects. Using SurveyMonkey, 74 secondary chemistry and physics teaches in 34 Kentucky school districts were asked about the kinds of technology they used in their classrooms and in what way(s) they used technology. The survey response was 23% (N=17). Survey results indicated that teachers used videos, various apps and websites, cell phones, tablets, lab aids, and SMARTboards in their classrooms ...


Motor Development And Skill Acquisition In Elementary Aged Students, Joanna M. Guerrant Ms. Nov 2016

Motor Development And Skill Acquisition In Elementary Aged Students, Joanna M. Guerrant Ms.

Posters-at-the-Capitol

Mastering physical movement occurs through motor learning and experience. Motor development is needed for successful acquisition of sport and other physical skills. A lack of motor skills has been associated with decreased physical activity later in life, which has been linked to a variety of hypokinetic diseases. This study examined motor learning and skill acquisition in elementary age children. Twenty 2nd-5th grade students were recruited through the local school system. Subjects did not have any injuries that would preclude them from performing three basic skills (modified squat, tree, and arm and leg raises). IRB approval, parental consent ...

The Impact Of Student Outfit Choice On Class Participation, Emily Law, Cynthia Istook Nov 2016

The Impact Of Student Outfit Choice On Class Participation, Emily Law, Cynthia Istook

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

The psychology of clothing has been much researched, yet remains a very complex subject. Studies have shown that clothing can influence people's perceptions of others, even regarding expectations related to intelligence and academic achievement. This pilot study was performed to uncover the ways in which a student might be impacted by the clothing they chose to wear to class every day. The results of this study were consistent with the hypothesis that students' classroom participation would be impacted by their outfit choice. Students were more engaged in class when wearing more professional clothing than when attired in casual or ...
