Structural Regression (S-R) Analysis was used to examine the effect of the goal dimensions on psychological distress at Time 1 (April ...

Are We “Reading The World”? A Review Of Multicultural Literature On Globalization, Melissa L. Gibson 2010 Marquette University

Are We “Reading The World”? A Review Of Multicultural Literature On Globalization, Melissa L. Gibson

College of Education Faculty Research and Publications

Given its commitment to “reading” the social context, how is multicultural education accounting for the shifting context of our globalized world? A conceptual review of multicultural journals reveals limited engagement. However, a more sustained analysis could fuel re-articulations and contestations of the purpose of education in the 21st century.


The Growing Need For A Unified Biopsychosocial Approach In Mental Health Care, Timothy Melchert 2010 Marquette University

The Growing Need For A Unified Biopsychosocial Approach In Mental Health Care, Timothy Melchert

College of Education Faculty Research and Publications

Psychology has been remarkably successful as a scientific discipline and field of clinical practice. Despite its remarkable growth, however, the field has also experienced substantial conflict and controversy. There has been great diversity in the approaches counselors and psychologists have used to understand development, psychopathology, and the goals and processes of psychotherapy. This has led to large numbers of conflicts and controversies that have distracted the field from its primary purposes. A biopsychosocial approach has the potential to bring the field together around a unified science-based framework for understanding mental health practice that will avoid these conflicts.

Dissertations

Problem. England and Australia are the frontrunners in the establishment of media literacy education in schools, providing performance and content standards, norm-referenced tests, and pre-service university training for a specialty in media education. Canada is also in the advanced stage in the development of a media literacy curriculum. The United States, although a major producer of media, lags behind these countries in preparing its teachers and students to understand the media. Although national education standards and the curricular frameworks of all 50 states now contain one or more elements calling for some form of media literacy education, only a handful ...

Academy Students' And Pre-Service Teachers' Perceptions Of The Use Of Electronic Technology In Their Personal Life And School Experiences In A Selected Union Conference, Alan R. Williams

Dissertations

Problem. The influx of N-Gen students into the classroom of teachers of earlier generations has created a digital generation gap. This gap has serious consequences for schools. For example, only half of the public school teachers who had computers or the Internet available in their schools use them for classroom instruction. However, today’s students are very technology savvy, feel strongly about the positive value of technology and rely upon technology as an essential and preferred component of every aspect of their lives. It appears that the slow speed at which technology is changing the classroom is providing challenges to ...

Lifecode: An Examination Of The Shape, The Nature, And The Usage Of The Oikoscode, A Replicative Nonformal Learning Pattern Of Ethical Education For Leadership And Community Groups, Thom Wolf

Dissertations

The problem investigated in this study is how the oikoscode (Haustafeln), a pattern of ethical education replicated by earliest Christianity, can be developed into a theoretical model. The oikoscode is the lifestyle pattern, the lifecode of attitudinal framing and behavioral conduct that guided earliest Christianity, the generation of the first 25 years after the resurrection of Jesus.

Method

For this study in theory construction, Lynham‘s five-phased (conceptual development, operationalization, application, confirmation or disconfirmation, and continuous refinement and development) theory-building recursive system was used, delimited to only two of the five phases, conceptual development and operationalization. Data regarding the ...

Relación De Las Variables Del Clima Organizacional Y La Satisfacción Laboral En La Clínica Good Hope, Lima, Perú, En Al Año 2009, Freddy Robles Lirio

Dissertations

Problem

This study explores the relationship between leader practices, peer collaboration, acknowledgment towards the leader, employee development, work environment, and identification with the company’s objectives with employee satisfaction at the Good Hope Clinic, during 2009.

Methodology

An adaptation of Merck, Sharp, & Dohme’s questionnaire was used to measure organizational climate. The instrument measures six dimensions of organizational climate: leader practices, peer collaboration, acknowledgment towards the leader, employee development, work environment, and identification with the company’s objectives. Employee satisfaction was measured with a short scale. The population consisted of 467 employees from the Good Hope Clinic. The employees were gathered to participate in the survey, and those dates coincided with employee monthly meetings in their respective areas. Employees who were on vacation, medical leave, or in a work assignment did not participate. The total number of participants was 377, or 80.7% of the population.

Results

The results show that from the six variables (leader practices, peer collaboration, acknowledgment towards the leader, employee development, work environment, and identification with the company’s objectives) of the original model, only three beta coefficients are significant predictors (employee development with a/? = 0.129 [t - 2.206, p = 0.028]; work environment with a/? = 0.267 [t - 4.375,p = 0.00] and identification with the company’s objectives with a/? = 0.220 [t = 3.746.p - 0.00]) in regard to employee satisfaction among those who work at the Good Hope Clinic. The model that includes the six variables of the organizational climate explains 35% of the ...
