Exploring Entrepreneurial Intention And Subjective Beliefs: A Comparative Analysis Of General Education Schools And Commercial Schools, Julia Riess, Bettina Fuhrmann, Gerhard Geissler Apr 2024

Exploring Entrepreneurial Intention And Subjective Beliefs: A Comparative Analysis Of General Education Schools And Commercial Schools, Julia Riess, Bettina Fuhrmann, Gerhard Geissler

International Journal for Business Education

This study examines the entrepreneurial intentions of Austrian secondary school students, specifically comparing students from commercial schools with those from general education schools. We analyzed 2,329 data sets and found that subjective beliefs, primarily behavioral and control beliefs, significantly influence entrepreneurial intentions. In addition, demographic factors such as gender, language, acquaintance with entrepreneurs, and school type play a significant role in explaining the variance in entrepreneurial intentions.

Our detailed analysis shows that students from commercial schools have stronger entrepreneurial intentions and subjective beliefs. Particularly notable are the differences in behavioral beliefs, where students from commercial schools find all aspects of …


Leading Horses To Water During A Pandemic: Assuring Communication Learning For "Quants", Thomas Hall Mar 2024

Leading Horses To Water During A Pandemic: Assuring Communication Learning For "Quants", Thomas Hall

International Journal for Business Education

Students who are attracted to quantitative disciplines of study can be reluctant to devote much attention to the important task of communicating, and previous research (Hostager, 2018) has identified statistically significant differences in learning approaches by major among undergraduate business students. This paper presents results of learning assurance for writing skills (direct measures) even when the content of the course relates to the highly quantitative topics of data analytics and finance. The approach combines various pedagogical methods in an undergraduate, writing-intensive setting: traditional testing but in an iterative framework, “flipped classroom” intensive work using spreadsheet software, repeated submission of brief …


Finding The Humanity In Policy Work: A Teacher Educators’ Response To The 2023 Amle Policy Agenda, Kristina N. Falbe Mar 2024

Finding The Humanity In Policy Work: A Teacher Educators’ Response To The 2023 Amle Policy Agenda, Kristina N. Falbe

Faculty Publications - College of Education

[In the absence of an abstract, the conclusion is presented.] When I first opened the document containing the policy priorities, I was struck by the way that AMLE centered the voices of young adolescent students. By including direct quotes from 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, AMLE positioned the priorities as being about middle school students and not just problem solving to answer calls about teacher retention, class sizes, or other structural issues that need to be addressed. I believe that policy must be in pursuit of improving and meeting the needs of these young peoples’ lives. I am hopeful that …


History And Education Of The Sacred: Black Girls And Curricular Violence In Literacy Learning, Jennifer N. Brooks, Gholdy E. Muhammad Feb 2024

History And Education Of The Sacred: Black Girls And Curricular Violence In Literacy Learning, Jennifer N. Brooks, Gholdy E. Muhammad

Faculty Publications - College of Education

Black girls and their literacies are genius. Yet, education, as we know it, does not consistently offer spaces for Black girls to be loved and honored. This form of neglect extends to literacy classrooms. As displayed in the news and research, Black girls experience abuse within the confines of educational walls. Educational violence against Black girls is a byproduct of dehumanization and devaluation, and it stems from history. The underlying stereotypical conditioning centered around the dehumanized, oversexualized, unladylike, Black girl may rationalize why educators overlook them when creating literacy curricula. When classroom teachers rely on these biases, the need for …

Contrasting Tick Species Behaviors: A Course-Based Undergraduate Research Experience (Cure), Sara Benham, Shovan Dutta, Rohan Maddamsetti, Clayton Wright, Alena Anderson, David T. Gauthier, Holly D. Gaff Jan 2024

Contrasting Tick Species Behaviors: A Course-Based Undergraduate Research Experience (Cure), Sara Benham, Shovan Dutta, Rohan Maddamsetti, Clayton Wright, Alena Anderson, David T. Gauthier, Holly D. Gaff

Spora: A Journal of Biomathematics

Tick-borne diseases are on the rise throughout the world, and there is a need to better understand tick behavior in order to identify potential new interventions. Ticks have a complex life history and can survive months off-host. There is a lack of large-scale data on off-host tick behavior, which leaves a gap in understanding of tick biology outside of tick-host interactions. Introducing undergraduate students to authentic research early in their studies can help prepare them for independent inquiry in upper-level classes. To address the student needs and fill gaps in tick research, students in introductory biology courses recorded observations of …


Reading Alphabetic And Nonalphabetic Writing Systems: A Case Study Of Bilingual Teachers' Reading Processes Through Eye Movement Miscue Analysis, Yang Wang, Ismahan Arslan-Ari, Ling Hao, Kyungjin Hwang Jan 2024

Reading Alphabetic And Nonalphabetic Writing Systems: A Case Study Of Bilingual Teachers' Reading Processes Through Eye Movement Miscue Analysis, Yang Wang, Ismahan Arslan-Ari, Ling Hao, Kyungjin Hwang

Faculty Publications - College of Education

This case study investigates the reading processes of two bilingual teachers who speak English as a second language and use different first languages—Mandarin Chinese and Korean. The two participants read researcher-selected digital texts in English and in their respective first language, retold the texts, and answered comprehension questions about the texts. Their reading aloud and eye movements were recorded for miscue and eye movement analysis. Using Eye Movement Miscue Analysis, the findings showcase the distinctive characteristics of their first-language and second-language reading processes. The cross-linguistic comparison between bilingual reading processes further shows the bilingual participants' similarities and differences in terms …


Carceral Care In Kentucky: The Case Of A School Safety Plan, Kaitlyn Selman, Hannah Carson Baggett, Lakendrick Richardson Jan 2024

Carceral Care In Kentucky: The Case Of A School Safety Plan, Kaitlyn Selman, Hannah Carson Baggett, Lakendrick Richardson

Faculty Publications - College of Education

In this case study, we analyze commentary made in school board meetings by both board members and community members over a period of five years in Jefferson County Public Schools, Kentucky, as a school safety reform around school policing took shape. We review meeting minutes, public commentary, and policy documents to illustrate how carceral ideas shaped stakeholders’ views about safety, security, and what should happen in schools regarding police and students. We conclude with abolitionist perspectives about repair and investment in communities.


"I’Ll Wait Zero Seconds": Faculty Perspectives On Serials Access, Sharing, And Immediacy, Rachel Elizabeth Scott, Anne Shelley, Chad E. Buckley, Cassie Thayer-Styes, Julie A. Murphy Jan 2024

Faculty and Staff Publications – Milner Library

This study explores how faculty across disciplines access and share scholarly serial content and what expectations they have for immediacy. The authors conducted twenty-five in-depth, semi-structured interviews with faculty of various ranks representing all Illinois State University (ISU) colleges. The findings, presented in the words of participants and triangulated with data from local sources, suggest that faculty use a variety of context-specific mechanisms to access and share serial literature. Participants discuss how they use library services such as databases, subscriptions, interlibrary loan, and document delivery, coupled with academic social networks, disciplinary repositories, author websites, and other publicly available sources to …


The Unintended Consequences Of Integrating Trauma-Informed Teaching Into Teacher Education, Kyle Miller, Karen Flint-Stipp Jan 2024

The Unintended Consequences Of Integrating Trauma-Informed Teaching Into Teacher Education, Kyle Miller, Karen Flint-Stipp

Faculty Publications - College of Education

In response to the growing need for trauma-informed teaching, more teacher education programs are incorporating trauma-informed content to prepare preservice teachers for their future classrooms. For this study, we examined student coursework and clinical experiences related to student trauma and trauma-informed teaching with a group of preservice teachers (N = 25). A thematic analysis of written reflections and interviews revealed deficit-based ideologies connected to student trauma with minimal attention directed at student strengths and resilience. Preservice teachers viewed student trauma in relation to behavioral issues, as circumstances that teachers have to deal with, and as a result of family and …


Seeking The Masculine With The Feminine: P-6 Pre-Service Teachers’ Views On Teaching About The 2020 Us Presidential Election, Tom Lucey, Xiaoying Zhao Jan 2024

Seeking The Masculine With The Feminine: P-6 Pre-Service Teachers’ Views On Teaching About The 2020 Us Presidential Election, Tom Lucey, Xiaoying Zhao

Faculty Publications - College of Education

As democracies have deteriorated worldwide, understanding preservice teachers’ perceptions regarding teaching about the 2020 US presidential election helps teacher educators better guide them to make informed and intentional pedagogical decisions for democratic education. Through a survey study, we found that early childhood and elementary preservice social studies teachers did not express a strong degree of comfort teaching about the presidential election and were most comfortable teaching about matters of literacy and of political agreement.


Champagne Wishes And A Domestic Beer Budget: Assessing And Supporting Serials Access At A Carnegie R2, Chad E. Buckley, Julie Murphy, Rachel E. Scott, Cassie Thayer-Styes, Anne Shelley Jan 2024

Faculty and Staff Publications – Milner Library

As library budgets are cut or remain flat, librarians asked to do more with less are considering diverse data to investigate how best to invest limited funds. The data available to librarians are extensive but they may also be contradictory. In this presentation, we contextualize findings from interviews conducted with Illinois State University faculty with institutional and collections data. Using the words of faculty members across disciplines, we highlight some of the tensions around discovery and access to scholarly literature, perceptions of urgency, and engagement with open access. The interview results--triangulated with institutional usage and cost data—suggest a variety of …


Paraprofessionals’ Implementation Of Constant Time Delay Procedures With Elementary Students With High-Intensity Behavioral Support Needs, Allison M. Kroesch, Sarah Southall, Nancy Welsh-Young, Katherine N. Peeples Jan 2024

Paraprofessionals’ Implementation Of Constant Time Delay Procedures With Elementary Students With High-Intensity Behavioral Support Needs, Allison M. Kroesch, Sarah Southall, Nancy Welsh-Young, Katherine N. Peeples

Faculty Publications - College of Education

Paraprofessionals play a significant role in the education system. However, they often need more training on specific instructional strategies to use with the students they work with. In this study, we trained two paraprofessionals working in a self-contained elementary classroom for students with high-intensity behavioral support needs. Each paraprofessional used constant time delay to support students’ learning to read grade-level sight and science words. Paraprofessionals also gathered maintenance and generalization sessions using individualized social stories created by the classroom teacher. Not only did the four student participants meet mastery of their personalized word sets but paraprofessionals also implemented all phases …


Evading Race: A Critical Race Analysis Of Vocational/Career And Technical Education Policy, Chaddrick D. James-Gallaway, Arcasia D. James-Gallaway, Marci Rockey, Rahsaan A. Dawson Jan 2024

Evading Race: A Critical Race Analysis Of Vocational/Career And Technical Education Policy, Chaddrick D. James-Gallaway, Arcasia D. James-Gallaway, Marci Rockey, Rahsaan A. Dawson

Faculty Publications - College of Education

Using critical race theory (CRT) as both our theory and analytical framework, we interrogated vocational, career, and technical education (VCTE) policy as a racial instrument. We applied key CRT themes to examine both primary sources; including historical and contemporary VCTE Acts (e.g., Perkins I-V) and Congressional reports; and secondary sources, including academic analyses of VCTE, its history, and related legislation. Findings demonstrate that VCTE policy upholds race-neutrality, which we argue is problematic because without being designated a special population, racially oppressed students stand to miss out on important funding opportunities that could dramatically alter and improve their lives.

Cultivating A Collectivist Community On A College Campus For Latinx Students, Jordan A. Arellanes, Michael Hendricks, Chang Su-Russell Jan 2024

Cultivating A Collectivist Community On A College Campus For Latinx Students, Jordan A. Arellanes, Michael Hendricks, Chang Su-Russell

Faculty Publications – Politics and Government

Do inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA) courses geared toward Latinx students help create a collectivist community on a college campus? We argue that courses incorporating IDEA initiatives into their curriculum and focusing on Latinx individuals provide students the face, place, and space to create the cultural wealth required for educational success. The academic intervention described in this study focused on supporting the Latinx community and advancing our university’s IDEA values. This qualitative project describes the results of forty-seven participants in ten focus groups within undergraduate courses during the Fall 2019-Spring 2021 semesters. Based on a deductive-inductive hybrid thematic analysis, …
