Exploration Of Implementation Variables Impacting Trauma Informed Practices In Schools: A Narrative Review, Rachel A. Parker, David Hodgson, Lisa Wood, Karen Martin May 2022

Exploration Of Implementation Variables Impacting Trauma Informed Practices In Schools: A Narrative Review, Rachel A. Parker, David Hodgson, Lisa Wood, Karen Martin

International Journal of School Social Work

Current literature suggests that by using trauma- informed practices (TIP) in our schools and classrooms, positive short and long-term outcomes can be achieved for both children and their communities. However, there is little research identifying what helps or hinders the implementation of trauma-informed practice in schools or the development of a practitioner’s trauma-informed pedagogy. As part of this narrative review, 25 trauma- informed practice implementation variables were identified from 34 peer-reviewed works of current (2015-2020) literature using a process of thematic analysis. This review utilised an ecological model as an overlay to present these variables in a useable format ...

Identifying Respondent Group Representation In Extension Capacity Assessments: A Meta-Synthesis Of The Literature And A Primary Study, Kevan W. Lamm, Alyssa Powell, Alexa Lamm, Kristin E. Davis May 2022

Identifying Respondent Group Representation In Extension Capacity Assessments: A Meta-Synthesis Of The Literature And A Primary Study, Kevan W. Lamm, Alyssa Powell, Alexa Lamm, Kristin E. Davis

Journal of International Agricultural and Extension Education

A key factor in determining the future of agricultural extension efforts is ensuring that the voices of those who need to be heard are represented at all stages of the decision-making process. As agricultural extension becomes increasingly globalized, it is critical that the diversity of voices represented within capacity assessments likewise increases. Using two distinct approaches, the present study attempts to address a current gap within the extension literature specifically related to extension assessment respondent groups. First, 97 extension related assessment manuscripts were identified during a literature review and analyzed for respondent group. The results indicated most studies included only ...

The Exploration Of Undergraduate Attitudes And Knowledge About International Agricultural Issues And Us Agricultural Policy, Caitlin Bletscher, Megan Gould, Shuyang Qu May 2022

The Exploration Of Undergraduate Attitudes And Knowledge About International Agricultural Issues And Us Agricultural Policy, Caitlin Bletscher, Megan Gould, Shuyang Qu

Journal of International Agricultural and Extension Education

In today’s globalized world, educators and employers generally agree on the necessity for undergraduate agricultural [ag] students to develop a sound understanding of global ag issues and policy. Because of this, many U.S. universities have promoted internationalizing curriculum and increased international study abroad experiences. However, few studies have examined the impact of international experiences on students’ knowledge and attitudes about international ag issues and policies. This study bridges this gap by identifying the relationship between student knowledge and attitude toward international ag issues and U.S. ag policy, and how international experience and demographic variables play a role ...


Building Global Leaders Through Field Research And Extension Experiences In Belize, Tom Gill, Adam S. Willcox May 2022

Building Global Leaders Through Field Research And Extension Experiences In Belize, Tom Gill, Adam S. Willcox

Journal of International Agricultural and Extension Education

One of the most complex agricultural and natural resources challenges of our time is reconciling sustainable global food security and biodiversity conservation. Providing undergraduate students effective, learning experiences to develop technical and cultural competency prepares them to address this challenge and become global leaders in their disciplines. A three-year experiential research and extension project brought together 14 students and 10 faculty mentors to investigate smallholder farmers practicing conservation-compatible adjacent to the Vaca Forest Reserve in Belize. We used an agroecological approach to foster systems-level thinking and develop transdisciplinary skills of undergraduate students. Students completed applied individual research projects that explored ...


Small Farm Resource Centers As Informal Extension Hubs In Underserved Areas: Case Studies From Southeast Asia, Abram Bicksler, Patrick Trail, Ricky M. Bates, Richard R. Burnette, Boonsong Thansrithong May 2022

Small Farm Resource Centers As Informal Extension Hubs In Underserved Areas: Case Studies From Southeast Asia, Abram Bicksler, Patrick Trail, Ricky M. Bates, Richard R. Burnette, Boonsong Thansrithong

Journal of International Agricultural and Extension Education

A Small Farm Resource Center (SFRC) is an informal in-situ extension model used for testing promising agricultural and rural livelihoods options on a physical central site, with some measure of extension methodology. There is a need to evaluate SFRCs as research-extension models operating outside of formal government extension and advisory services. Seven SFRCs located in Southeast Asia were studied to classify extension methodologies adopted by those centers, evaluate extension efficacy, and to provide recommendations for amplifying their services. On average in 2013, SFRCs were 21.1 years old, covered 24.2 ha, cost 242,000 USD to establish and had ...

The Impact Covid-19 Is Having On Freedom Of Speech And Expression On Campuses: From Issues To Solutions, Renee Marine

38th Academic Chairpersons Conference Proceedings

At a time of complete uncertainty, one thing remains consistent, the right the American people to freedom of speech and expression. What comes into question, is the cost of expressing that freedom. As stated in the First Amendment (1789):

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for the redress of grievances. (p. 1)

Right now, while millions of people are fighting for their lives, hundreds of thousands ...

Best Practices For Faculty Searches, Jeff Buller

38th Academic Chairpersons Conference Proceedings

Hiring the right faculty members is one of the most important decisions a department chair can make. But most chairs merely conduct searches the way people at their institutions always have.

Shared Governance And It's Role In Higher Education, Robert E. Cipriano Dr. Apr 2022

Shared Governance And It's Role In Higher Education, Robert E. Cipriano Dr.

38th Academic Chairpersons Conference Proceedings

For approximately the past seventy-five years, shared governance has been the overriding principle that guides decision-making in American Colleges and universities. The core notion of shared governance is that both faculty and administrators have important roles to play in setting university policy. Recently, has shared governance merely become a catchphrase that has radically different meanings to different people? This interactive workshop will provide attendees with the tools to fully understand the roles and responsibilities that both faculty and administrators must play to foster a shared governance on their campus.

Best Practices In Faculty Evaluation, Jeff Buller

38th Academic Chairpersons Conference Proceedings

Evaluating faculty members is one of a department chairs least favorite and yet most important tasks. Faculty evaluations can be time-consuming, anxiety-producing (for Bothe the chair and the faculty member), and extremely limited in their impact. But they don't have to be. There are practices that chairs can adopt to make the entire faculty evaluation process, if not easy, at least easier and more effective.

Curriculum mapping will reveal program strengths and weaknesses before beginning the assessment process, avoiding costly mistakes in the assessment process. The mapping process will assist in determining which outcomes are assessed, when the outcome is assessed, and in which course ...
