The Case For Excellence In Diversity: Lessons From An Assessment Of An Early Career Faculty Program, Mary Deane Sorcinelli, Dorothe J. Bach

Mary Deane Sorcinelli

Many colleges and universities have come to understand the added educational value of having a more diverse faculty, and some have created specific programs to enhance recruitment, development, and retention of underrepresented faculty. How do these programs help underrepresented faculty start a successful career? How can they help a diverse faculty build thriving, long-term careers in academia? This chapter addresses these questions by sharing the findings and lessons learned from an internal and external assessment of the Excellence in Diversity Fellows Program at the University of Virginia.

Copying Right And Copying Wrong With Web 2.0 Tools In The Teacher Education And Communications Classrooms, Ewa Mcgrail, J. Patrick Mcgrail

Middle and Secondary Education Faculty Publications

Understanding the tenets of copyright in general, and in particular, in online communication and publishing with Web 2.0 tools, has become an important part of literacy in today’s Information Age, as well as a cornerstone of free speech and responsible citizenship for the future. Young content creators must be educated about copyright law, their own rights as content creators, and their responsibilities as producers and publishers of content derived from the intellectual property of others. As educators, we want to prepare them for responsible and ethical participation in new forms of creative expression in the Information Age. The ...

Overwrought Copyright: Why Copyright Law From The Analog Age Does Not Work In The Digital Age’S Society And Classroom, Ewa McGrail, J. Patrick McGrail 2010 Georgia State University

Overwrought Copyright: Why Copyright Law From The Analog Age Does Not Work In The Digital Age’S Society And Classroom, Ewa Mcgrail, J. Patrick Mcgrail

Middle and Secondary Education Faculty Publications

In this article, the authors argue that copyright law, conceived of in an “analog” age, yet made stricter in our present Digital Age, actively stifles creativity among today’s student creators, both by its bias toward content owners and its legal vagueness. They also illustrate that copyright law is too stringent in protecting intellectual content, because physical and virtual objects are not the same thing. They conclude with a call to revise copyright for new media content that meets the needs of both content creators and pre-existing media content owners, and that, most importantly, benefits the education of the creative ...

How Farmers Learn: Implications For Agricultural Educations, Nancy K. Franz, Fred Piercy, Joseph Donaldson, Robert Richard

Education Publications

In this participatory action research, guided by a steering committee of farmers and agricultural educators, we examined how farmers learn and identified implications for agricultural educators. Since most educators teach the way they prefer to learn, this research could shape agricultural educators’ practice with farmers. Focus group interviews and surveys with 115 farmers and agricultural educators helped us understand how and why farmers learn and the role of agricultural educators, especially Extension educators, in farmer learning. Farmers articulated a learning process that relies mostly on first-hand experiences motivated by saving time and money, learning about cutting edge research, and engaging ...

All USU Press Publications

An important new resource for WPA preparation courses. In Going Public, Rose and Weiser moderate a discussion of the role of the writing program vis-a-vis the engagement movement, the service learning movement, and the current interest in public discourse/civic rhetoric among scholars of rhetoric and composition. While there have been a number of publications describing service-learning and community leadership programs, most of these focus on curricular elements and address administrative issues primarily from a curricular perspective. The emphasis of Going Public is on the ways that engagement-focused programs change conceptions of WPA identity. Writing programs are typically situated at ...
