Power Of Near-Peers: Conceptualizing And Testing A Near-Peer Mentoring Model In Raising Youths' Self-Efficacy In Computer Programming, Chongning Sun

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Self-efficacy is seen as a barrier for youth, females in particular, to enter computer science (CS). In this study, I presented a near-peer mentoring model that focused on changing the mentee’s self-efficacy in CS. The present study had three objectives: (a) to design a near-peer mentoring model (i.e., a conceptual model) around the sources of information that influence self-efficacy, (b) to develop a mentor training model based on the conceptual model, and (c) to test the effectiveness of the training model in increasing mentees’ self-efficacy in the context of a summer App programming camp. The present study adopted ...


The Efficiency Of Using Three-Dimensional Models To Teach Lifting And Rigging Concepts To Learners Of Varying Spatial Ability, Matthew Atherton 2021 California State University, San Bernardino

The Efficiency Of Using Three-Dimensional Models To Teach Lifting And Rigging Concepts To Learners Of Varying Spatial Ability, Matthew Atherton

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

In the literature on instructional media and its effects on learning, there is debate regarding whether a particular choice of media is essential for any given learning task. However, most studies that show conflicting results have not accounted for a differentiating learner characteristic known as spatial ability and its impact on the learner’s cognitive load when visualization is required. In this study, the interaction between instructional media and the learner’s spatial ability (specifically, their spatial visualization ability) was examined when the learner was required to work out a rigging problem in one of three ways: by manipulating a ...

Designing The Teachactive Feedback Dashboard: A Human Centered Approach, Dana AlZoubi, Jameel Kelley, Evrim Baran, Stephen B. Gilbert, Shan Jiang, Aliye Karabulut 2021 Iowa State University

Designing The Teachactive Feedback Dashboard: A Human Centered Approach, Dana Alzoubi, Jameel Kelley, Evrim Baran, Stephen B. Gilbert, Shan Jiang, Aliye Karabulut

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

Effective facilitation of active learning is key to enhancing student engagement in engineering classrooms. Instructors need opportunities for frequent observation, feedback, and reflection on the use of their active learning strategies, yet there are no validated automated approaches available. We address this need by designing a feedback dashboard, TEACHActive, that leverages classroom analytics from an automated sensing observation system. The TEACHActive dashboard provides feedback on the in-class implementation of various active learning strategies in engineering classrooms. In this poster, we present the initial phases of a human-centered dashboard design process. The human-centered design (HCD) approach includes techniques such as, creating ...


Catholics & Cultures: A Panoramic View In Search Of Greater Understanding, Stephanie M. Wong 2021 College of the Holy Cross

Catholics & Cultures: A Panoramic View In Search Of Greater Understanding, Stephanie M. Wong

Journal of Global Catholicism

While internet-based technologies can open up greater awareness of the world or create self-perpetuating echo-chambers, the Catholics & Cultures project aspires to do the former. Aiming to ‘widen the lens’ on the variety of Catholic communities and practices, the site delivers on this goal by introducing viewers to a vast array of articles, pictures and videos from around the world. The organization of the site by country and by certain key features of lived Catholicism offers some interpretive guidance. However, the project could be strengthened as a pedagogical resource if it were more extensively thematized and hosted reflections on potential heuristic ...

Creating Crafty Quiz Questions Through Moodle Modulation, James W. Sudhoff BSc, DVM 2021 James Sudhoff

Creating Crafty Quiz Questions Through Moodle Modulation, James W. Sudhoff Bsc, Dvm

Teaching Practices Colloquium

When designing our Moodle shells, instructors have enormous freedom to customize their content delivery so that it appeals to students and encourages engagement in the subject. One of the challenges of the virtual platform is a balance; creating formative assessments that accurately represent a student’s understanding of the material while not placing a huge time burden on the instructor to either create or assess. Plain text questions (e.g. standard multiple choice) can be effective but become monotonous and limit the scope of what can be asked. By incorporating customized pictures to your Moodle quiz content, you can generate ...

Higher Education – Just How High Is It?, Matthew Barclay 2021 Franklin University

Higher Education – Just How High Is It?, Matthew Barclay

The International Institute for Innovative Instruction Blog

Some people argue that the nature and purpose of education is to gain a broad range of knowledge. Unfortunately, higher education programs and courses are often afflicted with the myopia of knowledge, or even just brief encounters with it, above everything else. I don’t think knowledge alone represents the true heights of “higher education.”


Evaluation: The Bright, Illuminating Principle Of Teaching And Learning, Matthew Barclay 2021 Franklin University

Evaluation: The Bright, Illuminating Principle Of Teaching And Learning, Matthew Barclay

The International Institute for Innovative Instruction Blog

A few years ago, the planet Pluto was downgraded to “dwarf planet” status. Pluto is a small body made up of rock and ice, located billions of miles from the sun (Nasa, 2012). In other words, it’s a cold and rocky place, of little significance, far from the center of the system. This sounds like a description of evaluation in the realm of teaching and learning—at least a description of how evaluation is often treated.
