Advisor/Mentor Role In Guiding Future Primary Care Physicians, Stacey J. Kadish, Gina M. Gentile, Laura A. Sefton, Mary L. Zanetti, Michele P. Pugnaire

Mary L. Zanetti

One component of UMMS’s mission is to provide affordable, high-quality medical education to state residents and to increase the number of PCPs practicing in underserved areas of the state. This study responds to our growing need to recruit future PCPs by investigating differences in relationships with advisors/mentors between those students who pursue a primary care residency and those who do not. Presented at the AAMC (Association of American Colleges) Annual Meeting, RIME (Research in Medical Education) Program, November 2009.

Re-Imagining Specialized Stem Academies: Igniting And Nurturing ‘Decidedly Different Minds,’ By Design, Stephanie Pace Marshall

Publications & Research

This article offers a personal vision and conceptual design for reimagining specialized science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) academies designed to nurture decidedly different STEM minds and ignite a new generation of global STEM talent, innovation, and entrepreneurial leadership. This design enables students to engage actively in the authentic work, modes of inquiry, and practices that distinguish four STEM learning cultures, environments, and communities: (a) Inquiry and Research Laboratory and Interdisciplinary Learning Center—develops disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and inquiry-based thinking; (b) Innovation Incubator and Design Studio—ignites innovative and design-based thinking; (c) Global Leadership and Social Entrepreneurship Institute—nurtures change leadership ...

Representing Multi-Parent Organizational Structures For Use In High Performance Computing Resource Scheduling Algorithms, Lloyd T. Brown 2010 Brigham Young University - Provo

Representing Multi-Parent Organizational Structures For Use In High Performance Computing Resource Scheduling Algorithms, Lloyd T. Brown

All Theses and Dissertations

Historically, organizational structures of many universities and corporations have followed a strictly tree-based, hierarchical model. These organizations are defined with no more than one parent organization, and typically resource requirements for the organization could be derived from the parent organization. In recent years, however, many institutions have created interdisciplinary research groups which incorporate multiple fields of research across multiple campus organizations. For example, at Brigham Young University, there exists a biophysics research group, a child organization of both the Department of Biology and the Department of Physics, making it unclear how to define its resource requirements in the context of ...

A comprehensive approach to climate change education is necessary to address numerous environmental issues. Such an all-encompassing ecological pedagogy is multifaceted providing an overview of the science behind major global environmental issues within the context of the physical environment of Earth including global climate change, resource extraction, water and air quality, urbanization, geohazards, and pollution. The main goal of the curricula is to engage students in rigorous analyses of data that can be compared with global trends. This research discusses the development of an upper-level college course on Climate Change created as part of an interdisciplinary Honors Seminar Series. The ...

Causal Effects Of Single-Sex Schools On College Entrance Exams And College Attendance: Random Assignment In Seoul High Schools, Hyunjoon Park, Jere R. Behrman, Jaesung Choi 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Causal Effects Of Single-Sex Schools On College Entrance Exams And College Attendance: Random Assignment In Seoul High Schools, Hyunjoon Park, Jere R. Behrman, Jaesung Choi

Hyunjoon Park

Despite the voluminous literature on the potentials of single-sex schools, there is no consensus on the effects of single-sex schools because of student selection of school types. We exploit a unique feature of schooling in Seoul, the random assignment of students into single-sex versus coeducational high schools, to assess causal effects of single-sex schools on college entrance exam scores and college attendance. Our validation of the random assignment shows comparable socioeconomic backgrounds and prior academic achievement of students attending single-sex schools and coeducational schools, which increases the credibility of our causal estimates of single-sex school effects. Attending all-boys schools or ...

Book Review: Diary Of A French Girl: Surviving Intercultural Encounters, Shelley Kinash 2010 Bond University

Book Review: Diary Of A French Girl: Surviving Intercultural Encounters, Shelley Kinash

Professor Shelley Kinash

Extract:
What if we were privy to the innermost thoughts and feelings of one of our international students? What if we could read what she wrote home to her Mum and Dad and her best friend? What if we could read what she dared not even tell them, revealed only in her diary? What would she say about living in Australia? What would she say about the people she met? What would she say about the university and about our teaching?
Now we can, and it is very revealing.

Building A Private School In China: A Case Study Of An Ordinary Private School In Jiangsu Province, Molin Zhong 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Building A Private School In China: A Case Study Of An Ordinary Private School In Jiangsu Province, Molin Zhong

Social Impact Research Experience (SIRE)

This research paper is a case study of an ordinary private school in China. It specifically looks at what sorts of strategies the school in question used in order to compete in a confusing and nebulous sector of the Chinese economy. Through the effective management of external relationships with financiers, the local government, and the educational community as well as the internal relationships with the management structure, employees, and students, the school has achieved a measure of success. By success, the researcher means that the school has been able to survive in a difficult economic environment and maintain growth prospects ...


Pushing Library Information To First-Year Students: An Exploratory Study Of Faculty/Library Collaboration, Julia Gross, Eva Dobozy 2010 Edith Cowan University

Pushing Library Information To First-Year Students: An Exploratory Study Of Faculty/Library Collaboration, Julia Gross, Eva Dobozy

ECU Publications Pre. 2011

The authors contend that better information literacy and library skills development practice is needed for students entering university. This paper presents a case study of how a teacher education (TE) lecturer and a faculty librarian collaborated in an Australian university to provide information literacy practice. A mutual interest in technology-enhanced learning and teaching through podcasting media was the catalyst for the collaboration. A semester-long trial was conducted in which library pod/vodcasts were provided to first-year teacher education students. This paper explores this student learning and proposes a prototype for further media-related collaboration between academic and library staff.
