Pedestrian Pedagogy Of Place: Nurturing An Ecological Consciousness Through Slow Explorations Of The Public Realm, Kevin M. Pozzi Oct 2018

Pedestrian Pedagogy Of Place: Nurturing An Ecological Consciousness Through Slow Explorations Of The Public Realm, Kevin M. Pozzi

Leadership for Sustainability Education Comprehensive Papers

As increasing institutional paralysis and polarization demonstrate, citizens are not engaged or motivated by ecological challenges because they struggle to identify with our catastrophic relationship to nature in this urban, anthropocentric, and climactically-fraught modern era. Rather than focus solely on natural areas as a pathway to ecological consciousness and action, educators can inspire citizens through a “Pedestrian Pedagogy of Place” that brings wonder and enchantment into our urban public realm. Using the principles of sustainability education and place-based education as a framework, this pedagogy recognizes the sidewalk and pedestrian experience as a shared classroom through sensory, awareness-based learning modalities.

Hedonic Analysis Of Psu Faculty Salaries, Tim O'Brien, Matt Ransom, Ellery Reed, Tim Schindler, Kay Woodford, James G. Strathman

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

The complex issue of faculty compensation has vital importance within the academic labor market. Salaries reflect institutional, interpersonal, organizational and labor market forces. Designing productive and equitable faculty salary structures is one of the most contentious challenges that American higher education institutions face (Bowen, 1986).

Increasingly, salary scales have been more responsive to market conditions, which has widened the salary disparities among academic disciplines within the university labor market. Upward pressure on the salary scales in some disciplines has been countered by a downward pull in others (Scott and Bereman, 1992). As a consequence, analyzing academic salary structure can generate ...
