  2. Collaborative Learning Computer-Mediated Collaborative Learning: An Empirical Evaluation

    Maryam Alavi
    National commissions and scholarly reports on the status of contemporary higher education have frequently been critical of the college, experience; the emphasis on transmitting fixed bodies of in-formation and a failure to develop problem solv-ing and critical thinking skills have been cited as serious weaknesses in higher education systems. Colleges and universities have additional reasons to redevelop central pedagogies for students. In-dividuals need to learn at higher rates of effec-tiveness and efficiency than ever before because of rapidly growing bodies of relevant information and the escalation of knowledge and skill re-quirements for most jobs. Recent developments in computer hardware, software,...

  3. If Not Us, Than Who? Performing Pedagogies of Hope in Post-Katrina America

    The Norman; K. Denzin; Michael D. Giardina; Laura A. Hess
    This article engages with and challenges the dominant mediated pedago-gies circulating in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Interweaving firsthand accounts of the rescue/recovery effort in Louisiana with a critical interroga-tion of the cultural/political response to the devastation, the text crisscrosses ages, genders, religious, and political affiliations; agreement and disagree-ment; and racial and class-based logics while painting a disturbing—yet paradoxically hopeful—picture of (post-)Katrina America.

  4. Creative Alternatives for Service Learning: A Project-Based Approach

    Roselyn M. Grizzaffi
    This document discusses how service learning has developed over the past century in its practices from involvement in volunteerism to active civic engagement. It is so beneficial to both learners and the community that many educators and government leaders believe it should be a required component in the educational career of all students. The findings from a study about Service Learning and Problem-Based Learning concluded that student and teacher motivation substantially increased when combining Problem Based Learning (PBL) with Service Learning in the Communication classroom. Reciprocity of motivations exists between the teacher and her/his students. Students ' communication skills improve,...

  5. Pre-service Teachers ’ Conceptions of Education for Sustainability

    Neus (snowy Evans; Hilary Whitehouse; Ruth Hickey; Neus (snowy Evans; Hilary Whitehouse; Ruth Hickey
    Abstract: Environmental education researchers argue that pre-service teachers have a limited understanding of education for sustainability. The research described in this article applies a phenomenographic approach to investigating variations in how a representative cohort of 30 pre-service teachers, at various stages of completing an education degree at a small regional Australian university, understands the concept of education for sustainability. The results distinguish four related but distinctive categories of descriptions: (1) education that is continuous; (2) education about ecological systems and environmental systems; (3) education that is active, hands-on, local and relevant; and (4) education for the future. This paper discusses...

Special emphasis is placed on K-8 students ’ learning of these concepts as well as the readiness of teachers to successfully guide students ’ learning. Kennedy, Tipps, and Johnson (2004) refer to elementary school geometry as spanning the basics of four geometrical systems: topological, Euclidean, coordinate, and transformational. In order for preservice teachers to be prepared to help their students learn geometry with understanding and proficiency, they must first have in-depth opportunities to engage with these ideas themselves, and develop connections between them, as well as gain skills in appropriate...

  7. AUGUST 2000JOURNAL OF MARKETING EDUCATION Relating Pedagogical Preference of Marketing Seniors and Alumni to Attitude toward the Major

    Richard Davis; Shekhar Misra; Stuart Van Auken
    Learning styles of marketing students have changed over the years. Changes have also occurred in emphases placed by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business, uni-versities, schools, and departments on meeting student learn-ing needs. This study measures the pedagogical preferences of marketing seniors and alumni and relates them to a global attitude toward the marketing major. This approach may be used in any marketing program as a potential attitudinal enhancement mechanism, since key pedagogies can be identi-fied. In turn, the motivation and learning potential of pedagogies can be evaluated. Results indicate an association between in-class activities and overall attitude...

    Daniel S. Dotson; Karen R. Diaz
    The Ohio State University Libraries offers an introduction to library research to students in survey courses that introduce them to the university. Through an online assignment called Make the Leap, students expand their skills in finding web sites, books, and journal articles via the use of a web search engine, the library catalog, and a research database. In 2006, the assignment was retooled to target engineering students using topics and tools relevant to engineering and computer science students. This article details the pedagogies and strategies of both versions of the assignment and shows evidence for student and instructor preference toward...

  11. Emergent frameworks of research teaching and learning in a cohort-based doctoral programme

    Michael Samuel
    This article argues that alternate models of doctoral research teaching and learning pedagogy could address the challenge of under-productivity of doctoral graduands in the South African higher education system. Present literature tends not to focus on the models of research teaching and learning as a form of pedagogy. The article presents a case study of a doctoral cohort model programme where attention to both quantity and quality of doctoral “production ” are engaged in the curriculum design and methodological approaches employed. In this alternate to the traditional “master-apprenticeship”, epistemologies that the programme creates are influenced by its pedagogical methodologies. This...

  12. Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round Public Discourse, National Identity and the War:

    A. L. Mccready; Neoliberal Militarization
    The yellow ribbons that have become so ubiquitous in Canada as the emblem of the national “Support Our Troops ” campaign are highly charged semiotic tools in a battle for control of public discourse, marking the growing militarization of Canadian society in an age of empire. I read the Yellow Ribbon here as neoliberal cultural pedagogy, an everyday means by which individuals learn and teach specific cultural values and tropes, both explicitly and implicitly. As a symbol and a commodity, and perhaps more importantly as an everyday social and cultural practice, the Yellow Ribbon offers a glimpse into the dense...

  13. Pedagogy in Cyberspace: The Dynamics of Online Discourse

    Revue De; L’éducation À Distance; Cindy Xin; Andrew Feenberg
    This article elaborates a model for understanding pedagogy in online educational forums. The model identifies four key components. Intellectual engagement de-scribes the foreground cognitive processes of collaborative learning. Communica-tion processes operating in the background accumulate an ever richer store of shared understandings that enable the forward movement of the conversation. The collaborative process requires a moderator to coordinate communication and learning in a group. The moderator in online education is usually a teacher who shares knowledge in the process of leading discussion. Finally, a successful discus-sion generates intrinsic motivations to participate, which keep the discussion going. This framework is designed...

  14. Chapter 5 Global Ill-Literacies: Hip Hop Cultures, Youth Identities, and the Politics of Literacy

    H. Samy Alim
    Duncan-Andrade, 2004). By reviewing a broad but focused range of literature in education, literacy studies, Hip Hop studies, sociolinguistics, and linguistic anthro-pology, I focus my attention on research that examines the ways that engagement with Hip Hop cultural practices mediates a variety of social, cultural, linguistic, and educational processes that impact youth. In doing so, I work toward the develop-ment of a theoretical framework of ill-literacies by integrating, critiquing, and advancing the insights of this new body of work, which I refer to throughout as ill-literacy studies. After a brief introduction of the concept of ill-literacies, I review several studies...

  18. Credit courses on university teaching for graduate students in Canadian universities. The Canadian Journal of Higher Education

    Serge Piccinin; Michelle Picard
    The results of a national survey of credit courses on university teaching and learning for graduate students in Canadian universities are reported. Six uni-versities offer these semester length credit courses. All of these courses are available to all graduate students, but limited resources severely restrict the numbers who can actually take the courses. Half of the credit courses are spon-sored by faculties of graduate studies. A range of benefits of these courses and suggested factors to consider in initiating similar courses are noted. Résumé Cette étude traite des résultats d'un sondage national sur les cours crédités de pédagogie universitaire qui...
