Faculty And Student Perceptions Of Academic Cheating And The Influence Of Achievement Motivation With Online And Face-To-Face Learning Environments, Sherée Christine Royer Dec 2013

Faculty And Student Perceptions Of Academic Cheating And The Influence Of Achievement Motivation With Online And Face-To-Face Learning Environments, Sherée Christine Royer

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

There are many components contributing to academically dishonest behaviors and with improvements in technology, methods for cheating have expanded to web-based classrooms. This study focuses on academically dishonest behaviors in online and face-to-face (F2F) course formats in an attempt to better understand the impact of cheating in these two learning environments. Additional factors in this study include the relationship between student and faculty achievement orientation and classroom context through the use of vignettes. Participants were students and faculty from a large Southwestern University and faculty members from a local smaller college in the same area. Respondents completed inventories using a ...

Exploring Community Colleges In The Stem Education Landscape : Development Of Stem College Major Choice Model, Colleen Evans Oct 2013

Exploring Community Colleges In The Stem Education Landscape : Development Of Stem College Major Choice Model, Colleen Evans

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Community colleges are becoming increasingly relevant as an entrance point into postsecondary education for potential science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors. These institutions are also an important education pathway for women and racial/ethnic minorities who are currently underrepresented in the STEM workforce. The purpose of this study is to understand how student demographics, high school, and college experiences influence the entrance of community college students to the STEM college majors. Data from the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS: 2002) were used for the study. Students included in the study began their postsecondary education at community colleges. Descriptive ...

From Vision To Implementation: Keli’S First Year, Mary Devin

Educational Considerations

Great ideas alone won’t produce large-scale change. Careful attention to the implementation phase of the change process is essential. The Kansas Educational Leadership Institute (KELI) moved from planning to implementation on March 30, 2011 when planners approved the proposal for what was to become a statewide systematic support system for the recruitment, development, and retention of quality leaders in schools and school districts in Kansas and possibly beyond.

Theory Into Practice: A Cry From The Field For Innovative Leadership Development, Debbie K. Mercer, Scott Myers

Educational Considerations

Leaders make the difference. This is uniquely evidenced in school districts where a single superintendent impacts the lives of so many children, teachers, staff, and community members every day. With so much responsibility, the need to mentor the ongoing professional learning and development of this key leader is critical.


The Journey To Teaching Online: A Case Study Of Faculty Preparation And Experiences In Online Teaching, Angel Chi Aug 2013

The Journey To Teaching Online: A Case Study Of Faculty Preparation And Experiences In Online Teaching, Angel Chi

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

When Bill Gates published his book "The Road Ahead" (1995), he summarized the transformative implications of the personal computing revolution and described a future profoundly changed by the arrival of a global information super highway. Almost twenty years later, the tsunami of online programs and the MOOCs (massive online open courses) is impacting the structural integrity of postsecondary institutions and changing the competitive landscape of higher learning at an unprecedented pace. When Allen and Seaman (2013) asked the question of whether faculty acceptance of online education increased in their Sloan Consortium annual report, only 30.2% of chief academic officers ...


Active Learning In The Library: Stewarding Funds And Cutting Cables, Ryan Ingersoll Jun 2013

Active Learning In The Library: Stewarding Funds And Cutting Cables, Ryan Ingersoll

SPU Works

I share about my experience converting a traditional computer lab in the library to an active learning space. During summer 2012, the Seattle Pacific University Library staff proposed, planned, and implemented the conversion of a traditional lab space with 22 desktop computers into an active learning classroom. We equipped the room with mobile furniture, a wireless interactive, short-throw projector with digital pens, a new MacBook Pro checkout system, and put a fresh coat of paint on the walls. Partnering with librarians, Facilities, and Instructional Technology Services, the project came together just before the new academic school year.

Mentorship: Competitive Advantage In A Global Marketplace, Doreen Sams, Robin Lewis, Rosalie Richards, Rebecca Mcmullen, Larry Bacnik, Jennifer Hammack, Catlin Powell

SoTL Commons Conference

Greater access to college education, owed in part to technology and globalization, has the potential to prepare students to thrive in the competitive job market. Competition for careers in the U.S. requiring highly educated, innovative employees is increasing. Hence, undergraduate education offerings must change to prepare U.S. students for both a competitive workforce requiring advanced research and analytical skills and as a stepping-stone towards successfully completing post-baccalaureate degrees. Several universities recognize the critical need for undergraduates to engage in research where they participate in real world experiences that cultivate the academic and professional aptitudes required for the global ...


Inter-Institutional Collaboration: The Anti-Mooc?, Anne Marchant, Karen Warren, Veronica Pejril Mar 2013

Inter-Institutional Collaboration: The Anti-Mooc?, Anne Marchant, Karen Warren, Veronica Pejril

SoTL Commons Conference

Inter-institutional collaborations are starting to occur with greater frequency. Collaboration allows institutions to leverage resources to best advantage and produces the opportunity for creativity and innovation. As examples: colleges may offer foreign language classes jointly to enroll enough students to be cost effective; universities may partner with non-profits to create rich experiential learning environments. While large-scale, distance education (�MOOCs�) have very useful applications, the authors propose that higher education should be harnessing technology in to develop effective, engaging, and often interdisciplinary learning communities through collaboration in which the lines between research and learning can be blurred. As participants in a ...

How Is Teacher Self-Efficacy And Attitude Toward Technology Affected By Extended Intrusive Training?, Gregg Miles

Instructional Technology Education Specialist Research Papers

The purpose of this study was to examine the effect that intrusive training has on teacher attitude and self-efficacy toward technology. Intrusive training was defined as making proactive steps on the part of the Instructional Technology Specialist to introduce teachers to new ideas, information and instruction through emails, social media, small groups and individual training sessions. A four and a half week intrusive training process was implemented with the treatment group and the results were compared to a control group. No statistical difference was found in the attitude and self-efficacy of the treatment group compared to the control group. Several ...
