How Do People Belong In The Pacific? Introduction To This Issue, Camellia B. Webb-Gannon, Jioji Ravulo

Faculty of Social Sciences - Papers

In early 2016, the two editors of this issue met together to discuss our common research interests. At that time, one of us (Jioji Ravulo) was a Senior Lecturer in the School of Social Sciences and Psychology at Western Sydney University (WSU), and the other of us (Camellia Webb-Gannon) was a Research Fellow in the School of Humanities and Communication Arts at the same institution. Camellia, whose research focuses on decolonisation in Melanesia, had recently returned from the 2016 Australian Association for Pacific Studies (AAPS) conference in Cairns at which she had hoped she would meet other researchers of the ...

1.0.A Daily Outline, Chris F. Bauer

Day 01

WELCOME to WINDOWS on the INQUIRY CLASSROOM!

You have landed on a piece of a National Science Foundation Project (DUE 1245730) directed by Professor Chris Bauer, Chemistry Department, University of New Hampshire. This is one part of a completely documented inquiry-based university science course called “Fire & Ice” which explores the nature of heat and temperature. There are multiple video perspectives and commentary from instructors and students, and documents of all course materials (agenda, instructions, student work). It’s too complicated to explain here. Take a look at the user orientation document at this link.

Partners provided each other with meaningful feedback on their syllabi and also exchanged lesson plans. In addition, test analysis skills were revised and we discussed common concerns related to grading. A rubric or scoring guide was also used to grade an essay test question in literature or geography.

We used what we have learned about smart teaching to provide advice to the instructor in a YouTube video, and then identified causes of and solutions for common disruptive behaviors. We ended the series with a "Thought Museum" activity and an assessment of the Teaching Academy.

Week Two Introduction, Judith Longfield

Teaching Academy

After discussing how preconceptions and misconceptions interfere with students' learning, we will learn steps for planning a lesson. We will also discuss ways to uncover students' ideas using classroom assessment techniques, or CATs, and create concepts maps of Chapter 2.

Week Three Introduction, Judith Longfield

Teaching Academy

After revisiting CATs and lesson planning, we will learn about additional teaching idea sources. We will then discuss motivation, illustrate a Chapter 3 concept, and learn ways to salt students' food before applying these ideas to our own lessons and assignments which are not currently motivating.


Week Four Introduction, Judith Longfield Apr 2015

Week Four Introduction, Judith Longfield

Teaching Academy

After reviewing Chapter 4 with a jigsaw activity, we will revisit lesson planning by using a rubric to evaluate two different plans. We also learned how to use low tech "clickers" and discuss the students' inertia including ways to overcome it using simulations and other teaching strategies. If there is time, we will talk about Just in Time Teaching (JiTT), a technique to get students to read.


Week Five Introduction, Judith Longfield Apr 2015

Week Five Introduction, Judith Longfield

Teaching Academy

After investigating hazardous classroom materials, we will learn about diverse students and how to teach them. We will also write learning biographies for different students and used them to consider a variety of teaching-learning issues, including college student development. In addition, we will shared our CAT implementation reports and discuss the impact of classroom climate on student learning.

Lesson Planning Introduction, Judith Longfield

Teaching Academy

You have been added to this online workshop because you were unable to participate in the face-to-face version. Due to the manner in which this session is being delivered, you will be unable to actively participant with others. However, every attempt to "capture" the essential elements of the face-to-face version has been made. During this online session you will "dissect" a sample lesson in order to identify its parts, and learn a process you can use to plan lessons. You will also have the option to submit your lesson plan for review.

Faculty of Social Sciences - Papers

Much of the focus of discussion on the Anthropocene has centred upon anthropogenic global warming and climate change and the urgency of political and social responses to this problem. However, we argue that there is an equally important challenge in thinking about our relationships with non-human animals.

Changing Times In School Law - Introduction, Jeanne L. Surface, David Stader, Anthony Armenta

Educational Leadership Faculty Publications

As 2012 came to a close, the re-election of President Obama assures the continuation of state waivers to No Child Left Behind (NCLB), the use of student growth modeling to make teacher and administrator employment decisions, and more accountability measures for PK-12 public schools and public and private institutions of higher education. The inexplicable school shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, once again opened the political discussion about school safety. The reauthorization of Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEIA) looms on the horizon. The U.S. Supreme Court has once again ventured into the divisive ...

Public Administration Faculty Publications

Technology can be defined as “the social, material, or cloud/cyberspace tools used to manipulate human behavior to achieve a specified objective.” In the classroom, teachers use a variety of technologies to elicit desired student response or output and ultimately to achieve a level of learning appropriate for particular students. For example, decisions to use a chalk/white board versus PowerPoint during a lecture are often made based on the nature of engagement desired with the students. Arranging seats or desks in a classroom in a lecture format, an open circle, or an open square generates different types of engagement ...


Editors' Introduction: Human Geography, Derek Gregory, Noel Castree Jan 2012

Editors' Introduction: Human Geography, Derek Gregory, Noel Castree

Faculty of Social Sciences - Papers

When we were invited by Sage to identify published work in human geography that represents what is best and most distinctive about the field it seemed an impossible task (it still does) because there is such a rich volume of material to draw from. We decided to focus on Englishlanguage and to a lesser extent other European contributions, although we are acutely aware of the irony, even the imperialism, of limiting a field like human geography to knowledges rooted in only a fraction of the world. We discuss below the dangers of delimiting Geography as a European or Euro-American science ...

Other Educational Resources - OCW

Instructional technology is a systematic way of designing, developing, implementing, and evaluating the processes of learning and teaching with specific objectives based on research in human learning and communication. It employs a combination of human and nonhuman resources to bring about more effective instruction. Instructional technology includes aspects of instructional design, product development, interactive learning technologies, multimedia, distance education, and library and information literacy. Each aspect of the field has unique contributions to make to the teaching-learning process.


Heg77-84 How A Bill Becomes Laws In Nebraska, Janet Wilson Jan 1977

Heg77-84 How A Bill Becomes Laws In Nebraska, Janet Wilson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide looks at the steps necessary for a bill to become a law in Nebraska.

The legislative process sometimes seems to be clothed in an aura of mystery. An understanding of the organization of the governing body and the steps involved in the introduction and passage of a bill should help remove some of the mystery.

A bill is an idea for a new law, or an idea to abolish or change an existing law.

Several hundred bills, ideas about many things, enter the legislative process in Nebraska each time the legislature meets.
