An Analysis Of Dance In Cuba: Flamenco, Sierra Ausbror

Cuba is an island defined by its mixture of people, long inhabited by indigenous people, colonized by white Europeans and built by African slaves. Each of these people had their own culture, history, and music, which has maintained and fused over the centuries.

What Do We Know About In-Service Police Training? Results Of A Failed Systematic Review, Laura Huey 2018 University of Western Ontario

What Do We Know About In-Service Police Training? Results Of A Failed Systematic Review, Laura Huey

Sociology Publications

To learn more about what the social scientific research literature can tell us about ‘what works’ in the field of in-service police training, the author attempted to conduct a systematic review of the recent published research on this topic (2000-2015). After initially narrowing the search results to 21 studies, the review had to be abandoned because there was an insufficient number of studies on any one topic or training technique. The author reflects on what this failed review means from the standpoint of the possible economic and social costs of potentially ineffective and inefficient in-service training.

Illustrating A Technical Manual: Copyright And Fair Use In A Real World Professional Context, Karyn Hinkle

Library Faculty and Staff Publications

This lesson was developed for students preparing to enter professional practice who were assigned to write and/or illustrate a technical howto manual on a topic of their choice (how to put on ski boots, draw blood, use a fitness tracking app, etc.). The teaching librarian conducts a class session on finding and creating images to illustrate the manuals and teaches differences between using copyrighted and non-copyrighted images.

Librarians can teach this ...

Whose Job Is It? Strategies Of A Team-Based Institutional Repository, Alicia Marrese

Lavery Library Faculty/Staff Publications

St. John Fisher College’s Lavery Library has a growing institutional repository, but no full-time position dedicated to it. In the five years since the repository’s creation, Lavery Library has employed a library-wide team effort to support the repository’s development. This poster depicts some of the successful strategies this small academic library has employed while collectively endeavoring to archive new content, including vital collaborations between library departments and other faculty and staff on campus.

Purposeful Explorers: Adolescents Finding Their Purposes In A Catholic High School, Brandy P. Quinn 2018 Texas Christian University

Purposeful Explorers: Adolescents Finding Their Purposes In A Catholic High School, Brandy P. Quinn

Journal of Catholic Education

Contemporary research about purpose suggests that adolescents benefit in multiple ways when they develop purpose, and at the same time, that many adolescents are not purposeful. Adolescents in Catholic high schools may receive a unique set of contextual supports that help them develop a sense of purpose and understand what that purpose is. This study was designed to understand the content and organization of purpose for young adolescents during their first year in a Catholic high school. The sample included 153 ninth grade students from a Catholic high school in the United States (M age at T1 = 14.02 years ...


Disintegrating Worldviews And The Future Of Catholic Education: Addressing The Deep Roots Of Catholic Disaffiliation, Patrick R. Manning 2018 Seton Hall University

Disintegrating Worldviews And The Future Of Catholic Education: Addressing The Deep Roots Of Catholic Disaffiliation, Patrick R. Manning

Journal of Catholic Education

Catholic schools in this country continue to struggle with declining enrollment just as the wider American Church continues to struggle with rampant disaffiliation. While some Catholic educators have generated creative solutions to keep their schools afloat, the long-term viability of U.S. Catholic education will require understanding the deep roots of current disaffiliation trends in the gradual fading of the Christian worldview from Westerners’ imaginations. This article addresses this issue by interpreting sociological data about the faith lives of Catholics and Americans in general through the lens of contemporary research on secularization. Working from these interpretive insights, the author suggests ...
