The Development Of Photography Training For Recreation And Wellness Marketing, Erica Pax Dec 2014

The Development Of Photography Training For Recreation And Wellness Marketing, Erica Pax

Master of Education in Instructional Design and Technology Plan II Graduate Projects

The Department of Recreation and Wellness marketing office previously did not have a standardized photographic workflow to ensure all marketing student employee photographers consistently capture, edit, name, and store digital image files. As a result, the digital photo library contained digital image files of varying quality that were organized inconsistently. These inconsistencies made it difficult for designers to quickly and efficiently locate adequate image files for use in the creation of promotional items. In addition, a reduction in administrative staff and an increase in workload necessitated that new student employees learn new processes through self-instruction.

The researcher created a photography ...

Presenting Data Effectively: Communicating Your Findings For Maximum Impact, Nancy K. Franz Dec 2014

Presenting Data Effectively: Communicating Your Findings For Maximum Impact, Nancy K. Franz

Extension and Outreach Research and Scholarship

As program evaluators we aspire to conduct sterling evaluations. However, the value of these evaluations quickly declines if we fail to effectively communicate findings in meaningful ways to stakeholders. In my work presenting data to a wide variety of audiences from elected officials to university leaders, coworkers, academics, and partner organizations, I have put effort into being concise, accurate, and clear in my communications. I have been less intentional about designing the graphics and other elements of data presentation in ways that align with how our brains operate and how we best retain information. So I was very curious about ...

Transmedial Documentation For Non-Visual Image Access, Melody J. Mccotter Nov 2014

Transmedial Documentation For Non-Visual Image Access, Melody J. Mccotter

Proceedings from the Document Academy

In my doctoral studies on information accessibility for the individual who is blind or visually impaired, I’ve been exploring the ways we can make image documents more accessible. This requires using an alternative sensory modality, and translating the document into a different format. The questions that arise when we consider this process are many, but among them are:

  • Is it the same document once we’ve converted it to an audio narrative about the work, or a 3D topographic map of an artwork, or a musical interpretation?
  • If it is not the same document, how truthful can the “trans-medial ...


Using Visual Mind Mapping To Design Academic Courses: Transitioning From Text-Based Planning Documents To Course Design Maps, Rob L. Wood Nov 2014

Using Visual Mind Mapping To Design Academic Courses: Transitioning From Text-Based Planning Documents To Course Design Maps, Rob L. Wood

Learning Showcase 2014

The adage “A picture is worth a thousand words” (circa 1921) represents the concept that images can convey complex ideas and information more efficiently, and more effectively, than linear text alone. By contrast, much of the practice of instructional design remains bound to its “textual roots” from the 1940s. Today, most instructional design products, such as planning documents, remain text-based. The author’s instructional design practice remained textually-based for over 20 years, until his research into, and subsequent adoption of, mind mapping, a visual method of organizing complex thoughts and developing ideas. The principles of mind mapping are quite old ...

Many stakeholders in the educational sector have voiced and advocated in the use of OER as a panacea to the skyrocketing costs of instructional and learning materials including textbooks, software, videos, and research articles among others. However, little effort in terms of research has been devoted to exploring and understanding the cost, benefits, and impact of OER on learning and/or education,. More specifically, a framework that can answer critical questions about the OER and its impact on learning is needed. It is against this background that this poster session will articulate the need for more robust research on the ...


Choosing Appropriate Technologies To Engage Millennial Students, Yi Yang, Dennis Priebe Nov 2014

Choosing Appropriate Technologies To Engage Millennial Students, Yi Yang, Dennis Priebe

Learning Showcase 2014

Millennial students are those who were born between years 1982 - 2003 and thus started to enter college after year 2000. Howe and Stress (2000) contend that millennial students have different attitudes and behaviors than the previous generations, such as baby boomers and Generation X. They are also referred to as Generation Y, Nexters, Digital Natives, and Generation Me. Millennial students are (1) conventionally motivated and respectful; (2) structured rule followers; (3) protected and sheltered; (4) cooperative and team-oriented; (5) confident and optimistic about their futures; (6) talented achievers (Strange, 2004). To meet their learning styles and needs, we need to ...

Statistical Strategies: Meeting The Needs Of Struggling Math Students Through Self-Guided Interactive Media, Nimet Alpay, Adam Reid, Caitlin Uttley, Carolyn Levally

Learning Showcase 2014

The goal of every introductory statistics course is to produce statistically literate students with an ability to make informed decisions and to think critically. This is a challenging task. In fact, the introductory statistics course at Franklin University, Math215, has had disproportionately low success rates for several years. To address these concerns, considerable revisions were made to the curriculum, addressing the challenges of students and faculty. Perhaps the most significant among those changes was the addition of a series of standalone, interactive multimedia pieces to supplement the textbook and other course materials. The development of these 28 multimedia pieces took ...


Learner Interest, Reading Comprehension And Achievement In Web-Based Learning, Maryellen Tancred Nov 2014

Learner Interest, Reading Comprehension And Achievement In Web-Based Learning, Maryellen Tancred

Learning Showcase 2014

The web-based learning environment provides access to education for those who are unable to be physically present in a classroom. In situations where comprehensive learner analysis is cost prohibitive, fiscally prudent guidelines for learner analysis that include learner interest and the cultural attribute of language may be feasible alternatives to omitting learner analysis altogether as an online instructional design consideration. Community colleges routinely collect student data during the college admission process, such as the COMPASS reading score, which may be useful in predicting student success in web-based courses.

Therefore, learner characteristics such as the COMPASS reading score, learner interest in ...

Technology-Enhanced Work Examples: Techniques For Using Mobile Devices To Enhance Learning Through Teaching, Collaboration, And Sharing, Julie A. Wuebker

Learning Showcase 2014

Many principles and concepts are best explained and demonstrated through worked examples. Worked examples can take many forms from fill-in-the-blank to fully written-out from scratch. Research shows that students and faculty alike find great value in spontaneous written examples on a whiteboard or chalkboard. This spontaneity allows instructors to quickly adjust to the learners needs. In this showcase, you will see how to use technology to transfer this concept of the classroom-based spontaneous worked example to online and hybrid class environments.

A Novel Approach To Using Personal Response Systems And Diagrams To Foster Student Engagement In Large Lecture: Case Study Of Instruction For Model-Based Reasoning In Biology, Johanna M. Fitzgerald

Doctoral Dissertations

At UMass Amherst a method of personal response system (clickers) use in large lecture biology called Guided Application of Model-based Reasoning (GAMBR) has been designed to give students experiences in reasoning like expert biologists: In large lecture biology many instructors appear to use clickers mainly as a quizzing and attendance tool. Less well documented and examined are uses of clickers to facilitate cognitive engagement in learning scientific models and skills. In GAMBR, clicker questions ask students to apply and perturb biological models; this is designed to engage them in model-based reasoning. In an attempt to understand such a course, an ...
