The Effects Of Music Listening On Affect, Self-Efficacy, Mental Exertion, And Task Performance Of Online Learners, Hayoung A. Lim, Eun-Jun Bang

Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning for Christians in Higher Education

Online education is becoming more common in higher education, and the number of students taking online courses is projected to increase dramatically. Despite the popularity of online education, there is scarce research on the psychological well-being for those online learners as they work toward their academic goals. To address this gap, the current study examined the effects of music listening on online learners’ mood, perceived self-efficacy, mental exertion, and task performance (N = 42). This study specifically focused on an online college education setting and examined the role of music listening and affect within this emotionally-dynamic context. Data analysis utilizing repeated ...

The Number Of Credit Hours Required For Bachelor’S Degrees At Christian Colleges And Universities, Andrew Sid Lang, Enrique F. Valderrama, Clare Ruth Holt

Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning for Christians in Higher Education

Trends in the minimum number of credit hours required to complete a bachelor’s degree have been studied at four-year public institutions and appear to have been moving steadily towards a 120-hour standard for the majority of programs. The existence of such trends at Christian institutions have not previously been investigated nor has credit hour data been collected and made publicly available. If Christian institutions are not moving towards 120 hours, as state schools are, it could signal an emerging dichotomy in higher education requirements. This paper presents both the data and the trends in the minimum number of credit ...

A New Library Career, Susan J. Casstevens Dr. May 2018

A New Library Career, Susan J. Casstevens Dr.

The Christian Librarian

After working as a public and school library director for two decades, the challenge of reference and research work in an academic library is exciting and daunting for a mid-career librarian. She quickly realizes that constantly comparing fondly remembered library experiences with new professional challenges must transition into embracing what lays ahead and learning new skills. To successfully serve an academic library patron population, the variety of knowledge and information expertise is different and expanded, but the time-honored aptitude of treating library visitors well and carefully ascertaining their information needs remains the same.

Framing Failure In The Legal Classroom: Techniques For Encouraging Growth And Resilience, Kaci Bishop Apr 2018

Framing Failure In The Legal Classroom: Techniques For Encouraging Growth And Resilience, Kaci Bishop

Arkansas Law Review

In law school, a fear of failure can paralyze students and hinder their learning. Students may not try a new skill or a new argument or even give an answer in class if they are unsure or uncertain that they will get it right—or are afraid they will get it wrong. In part, this resistance to and fear of failure is exacerbated by legal education’s institutional focus on outcomes: grades, class rank, and high-paying jobs. This focus often causes students to be increasingly extrinsically motivated and encourages a “fixed mindset,” which contributes deleteriously to the mental health and ...
