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.

Redefining Technology In Development Work: A Need For Learning Outcomes In Ict Projects, Jayson W. Richardson, Gregory Sales

FIRE: Forum for International Research in Education

Redefining Technology in Development Work:

A Need for Learning Outcomes in ICT Projects

Jayson W. Richardson

Gregory C. Sales

Technology has redefined, and will likely continue to redefine, educational processes and procedures around the world. In many development efforts, however, the focus is on the hardware, software, or professional development. Rare is the international development project focused on teaching and learning. In this special issue of the Forum for International Research in Education (FIRE), we propose a reframing of ICT by shifting the paradigm to focus on Instructional quality, Curriculum development, and Teaching pedagogy. Thinking of ICTs ...

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.

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.

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

Jeanne L Surface

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 ...

Social And Technological Innovation In Teaching Public Affairs: Introduction To The Symposium, Thomas A. Bryer, Angela M. Eikenberry Oct 2013

Social And Technological Innovation In Teaching Public Affairs: Introduction To The Symposium, Thomas A. Bryer, Angela M. Eikenberry

Angela M Eikenberry

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 ...


Editor’S Note: I Think; Therefore, I Don’T—Tackling The Enormity Of Intellectual Inadvertency, Mohammad H. Tamdgidi Sep 2013

Editor’S Note: I Think; Therefore, I Don’T—Tackling The Enormity Of Intellectual Inadvertency, Mohammad H. Tamdgidi

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

This is the journal editor’s note to the Fall 2013 issue of Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge, entitled "Conversations with Enrique Dussel on Anti-Cartesian Decoloniality and Pluriversal Transmodernity." In his invitation for a South-South philosophical dialogue as a prelude to a broader global philosophical conversation to advance anti-Cartesian decoloniality and pluriversal transmodernity, Dussel aptly forewarns those from the South embarking on such a conversation to become aware of and avoid what he calls "inadvertent Eurocentricity." This cautious, self-critical reflexivity not only is indicative of the depth of the project being advanced by Dussel and how he ...

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 ...

The Potential Benefits Of Taking Introduction To Art For Non-Art Major College Students, Chia-Ying Hsieh May 2007

The Potential Benefits Of Taking Introduction To Art For Non-Art Major College Students, Chia-Ying Hsieh

Theses & Dissertations

This research was conducted to discern the potential benefits for non-art majors taking a general art course based on the perspectives of both discipline-based art education (DBAE) and visual culture and art education (VCAE). The research also attempted to ascertain the impact of DBAE and VCAE on the students. DBAE considers art an indispensable part of general education and supports a broad educational mission that promotes building minds and cultivating problem solving, VCAE stresses “meaning making” and active learning. This study demonstrated how the goals or objectives of art education promoted by both DBAE and VCAE are beneficial and crucial ...
