The Limitations Of Being A Good Antiracist, Pauli Badenhorst, Jenna Min Shim Nov 2021

The Limitations Of Being A Good Antiracist, Pauli Badenhorst, Jenna Min Shim

Teaching and Learning Faculty Publications and Presentations

In this paper, we take up our shared antiracist identity aspirations as teacher educators and investigate how complex racialized emotions generated in interracial encounters trouble the idealized object of a good antiracist identity. Utilizing redirected antiracist psychoanalytic method to parse stories created through collective memory work, persistent emotional defenses that diminish an ability to dismantle oppressive racist structures, both internal and external, are uncovered and theorized. Later, contrary to some transmissive curricular and pedagogical texts and discourses that prioritize resolve, the contours of a relational antiracist curriculum and pedagogy that welcomes and integrates ambivalent, ambiguous emotional dilemmas present and inevitable …


High School Students’ Reasons For Disliking Mathematics: The Intersection Between Teacher’S Role And Student’S Emotions, Belief And Self-Efficacy, Jair J. Aguilar Oct 2021

High School Students’ Reasons For Disliking Mathematics: The Intersection Between Teacher’S Role And Student’S Emotions, Belief And Self-Efficacy, Jair J. Aguilar

Teaching and Learning Faculty Publications and Presentations

The study presented here depicts the reasons for high school students to have a negative attitude toward mathematics. The students were asked to rate mathematics in comparison to other subjects like history, physics, or computer science. In addition, they were asked about their attitude, beliefs, and motivations toward mathematics. To this end a convergent parallel mixed-method approach was implemented using a questionnaire that combines open-ended, closed-ended (e.g., forced ranking scale, or multiple and single responses), and liker-scale items. One of the main reasons for student’s reluctancy toward mathematics is their lack of understanding and self-perception of low content knowledge, which …

Understanding Student Learning Pathways In Traditional Online History Courses: Utilizing Process Mining Analysis On Clickstream Data, Matt Crosslin, Kimberly Breuer, Nikola Milikic, Justin T. Dellinger

Teaching and Learning Faculty Publications and Presentations

Purpose

This study explores ongoing research into self-mapped learning pathways that students utilize to move through a course when given two modalities to choose from: one that is instructor-led and one that is student-directed.

Design/methodology/approach

Process mining analysis was utilized to examine and cluster clickstream data from an online college-level History course designed with dual modality choices. This paper examines some of the results from different approaches to clustering the available data.

Findings

By examining how often students interacted with others, whether they were more internal or external facing with their pathway choices, and whether or not they completed a …

Modeling Through Model-Eliciting Activities: An Analysis Of Models, Elements, And Strategies In High School. The Cases Of Students With Different Level Of Achievement, Jair J. Aguilar Apr 2021

Modeling Through Model-Eliciting Activities: An Analysis Of Models, Elements, And Strategies In High School. The Cases Of Students With Different Level Of Achievement, Jair J. Aguilar

Teaching and Learning Faculty Publications and Presentations

A mathematical client-driven task known as Model-Eliciting Activities was implemented with students of different levels of achievement (i.e., low, average, and high) at the high-school level. The study strived to prove that Model-Eliciting Activities can be solved by students at any achievement level and be used as an assessment tool. Students collaborated in teams of three to develop solutions that met the client’s needs. The model-solutions were compared and contrasted among several dimensions and achievement levels, considering the quality of the final product-solution based on the Quality Assessment Guide, the intermedia product composed of the type of models created, the …


Developing Cultural Competence In An Occupational Therapy Program In A Border Institution In South Texas, Criselda Garcia, Roel Garcia Jan 2021

Developing Cultural Competence In An Occupational Therapy Program In A Border Institution In South Texas, Criselda Garcia, Roel Garcia

Teaching and Learning Faculty Publications and Presentations

While strong consensus exists for preparing culturally competent occupational therapists as the national minority population grows, scholarship in this area continues to evolve. Conversations and explorations of best practices and perspectives add the practical component related to this phenomenon. Perspectives will be shared for leveraging culture to promote respect within communities from asset-based ideologies from the vantage point of a Latino clinician in a predominately Latino underserved community. The authors provide a brief review of the related literature, unpack the definitions of cultural competence, and discuss the pedagogical approach used by an occupational therapist educator. Framing the conversation from an …


Year Two: Effect Of Procrastination On Academic Performance Of Undergraduate Online Students, Irma S. Jones, Dianna Blankenship Jan 2021

Year Two: Effect Of Procrastination On Academic Performance Of Undergraduate Online Students, Irma S. Jones, Dianna Blankenship

Teaching and Learning Faculty Publications and Presentations

Procrastination presents problems not only for undergraduate students, but also for undergraduate faculty, and the effects of student procrastination on academic performance is a joint concern. This two-year follow up study seeks to better understand the relationship between academic performance and the actual time of submission of assignments relative to the deadline imposed on those submissions. The authors investigated the effect of academic assignment submission time and the academic grades earned before, on, and after the assignment submission deadline. These results continue to suggest that the earlier assignments are submitted, the higher the grades tend to be. Therefore, online faculty …


Learning To Teach In Mixed-Reality Simulated Virtual Environments At A Hispanic Serving Institution (Hsi), Veronica Lopez-Estrada, Carmen Pena, Denise Love Jan 2021

Learning To Teach In Mixed-Reality Simulated Virtual Environments At A Hispanic Serving Institution (Hsi), Veronica Lopez-Estrada, Carmen Pena, Denise Love

Teaching and Learning Faculty Publications and Presentations

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, faculty at a Hispanic serving institution shifted from face-to-face to totally online teaching. The authors describe two assignments for teacher candidates that required them to design and deliver lessons that focused on practicing two high-leverage practices utilizing Mursion, a mixed-reality simulation (MRS) software and platform. MRS sessions were delivered through Zoom video conferencing and were delivered asynchronously. Benefits, challenges, and limitations of using MRS in conjunction with Zoom in online courses were identified and discussed. Detailed logistics for planning, preparing, and executing MRS effectively were provided. The authors describe implications for remote learning …


Reconciling The Past: Language Validation In A First-Year Experience Course At A Border, Jose Saldivar Jan 2021

Reconciling The Past: Language Validation In A First-Year Experience Course At A Border, Jose Saldivar

Teaching and Learning Faculty Publications and Presentations

The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) has made part of its mission to become a bilingual, bicultural, and biliterate public institution. Established in 2015 on two legacy institutions, The University of Texas-Pan American and The University of Texas Brownsville, it must reconcile a past that was not always welcoming of its students’ bilingualism. This article examines one instructor’s experience taking one of the university’s signature first-year experience courses and creating a class that is welcoming and supportive of the students’ bilingualism while also reconciling his own educational experiences with language.
