This paper reports on the role of technology in state-of-the-art pronunciation research and instruction, and makes concrete suggestions for future developments. The point of departure for this contribution is that the goal of second language (L2) pronunciation research and teaching should be enhanced comprehensibility and intelligibility as opposed to native-likeness. Three main areas are covered here. We begin with a presentation of advanced uses of pronunciation technology in research with a special focus on the expertise required to carry out even small-scale investigations. Next, we discuss the nature of data in pronunciation research, pointing to ways in which future work ...

The Use Of A “Cpr Posture” For Hemorrhage Control, Nathan Phillip Charlton, Robert Solberg, Nici Singletary, Craig Goolsby, Justin Rizer, William Woods

International Journal of First Aid Education

Bleeding from traumatic injury is a major source of morbidity and mortality, however, little data is available to aid guidelines and curriculum developers in best practice of applying direct pressure when treating or teaching how to stop life-threatening hemorrhage.

Hypothesis: This study investigated the use of two-handed pressure with bent arms versus two-handed pressure with straight arms to apply direct pressure to a hemorrhage model.

Methods: Participants, recruited as a convenience sample, were randomized and instructed to use either two hands overlapping using arm strength only, or two hands overlapping with arms straight in a “CPR-like” position to apply force ...


Developing Software Engineers: Investigating The Influence Of A Computer Science Capstone On Professional Identity Formation, Richard John Parker 2019 University of Colorado at Boulder

Developing Software Engineers: Investigating The Influence Of A Computer Science Capstone On Professional Identity Formation, Richard John Parker

Computer Science Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Professional identity, or the connection between individuals and their professional community of practice, begins forming as early as deciding a major for university studies. Development is supported or hindered by situated practices and experiences throughout undergraduate studies and across the transition from university to the workplace. To explore how the academic setting supports or hinders professional identity formation, I expand situated learning theory with stages of concern to directly model identity-related progression of concerns across situated planes of development.

My dissertation research focuses on the Computer Science (CS) capstone experience. The CS capstone course is composed of teams of four ...


Exploring Influences And Using Intentionality To Develop Work-Based Learning Opportunities: A Faculty Perspective, Lauren McCrary 2019 University of Kentucky

Exploring Influences And Using Intentionality To Develop Work-Based Learning Opportunities: A Faculty Perspective, Lauren Mccrary

Theses and Dissertations--Educational Policy Studies and Evaluation

Understanding the practical implications related to experiential learning is complex. It is important to first view experiential learning as an umbrella term under which work-based learning (WBL) is housed. To further particularize, there are different avenues for students to pursue work-based learning opportunities (WBLOs), with internships and cooperative education being two. Although these are not new learning environments, understanding and clearly defining them (to both internal and external bodies) is increasingly necessary. In Kentucky, WBLOs are part of the political discourse on postsecondary education. The Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) and local economic development agencies have incorporated strengthening and growing ...


Exploring The Impact Of Work-Based Learning Opportunities From The Student Perspective: The Development Of Career Pathways, Workforce Expectations, And The Transmission Of Cultural Capital, Robert Boone 2019 University of Kentucky

Exploring The Impact Of Work-Based Learning Opportunities From The Student Perspective: The Development Of Career Pathways, Workforce Expectations, And The Transmission Of Cultural Capital, Robert Boone

Theses and Dissertations--Educational Policy Studies and Evaluation

Understanding the practical implications of work-based learning opportunities (WBLOs) is complex. Although WBLOs are not new learning environments, understanding and clearly defining them is increasingly necessary. In Kentucky, WBLOs are part of the political discourse in post-secondary education. The Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) and local/regional economic and workforce development agencies have incorporated strengthening and growing WBLOs into their strategic plans.

By interviewing students that have completed WBLOs at three colleges in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), this study intended to explore student perspectives of WBLOs by asking the following research questions: 1) What role do ...

Developing A Guide For Training An Iowa Ffa Conduct Of Meetings Team, Cassi Montandon

Creative Components

The purpose of this creative component was to create a handbook for agriculture students and teachers to reference while preparing for the Iowa FFA Conduct of Meetings Leadership CDE Contest at the sub district and district Levels. Many agricultural educators are tasked with training multiple teams and individual students for sub district and district contest, most of these teachers are young, and have recently graduated from college. Often these teachers are not given materials to train teams or individuals. The handbook I created is to serve as a reference guide which provides examples of scripts and oral questions. The handbook ...

An Assessment Of The Methods Used To Teach Content Skill Sets Required For The Introduction To Agriculture, Food, And Natural Resource Course, Lee I. Wright 2019 West Virginia University

An Assessment Of The Methods Used To Teach Content Skill Sets Required For The Introduction To Agriculture, Food, And Natural Resource Course, Lee I. Wright

Graduate Theses, Dissertations, and Problem Reports

Numerous studies have shown that students learn best when theory is applied to hands-on experiences. Traditionally, vocational agriculture, which evolved into agricultural education, has incorporated hands-on learning. For example, students typically raise livestock and crops as part of supervised agricultural experiences; learn to use chain saws, tractors, hay rakes, balers and other equipment found on farms; and basic metal working skills. They also sample soil and water to test for mineral levels and types of pollution that might affect agricultural practices. The purpose of this study, which incorporates a survey of agricultural education teachers in West Virginia, is to determine ...


Technical Job Placement Success Of Coding Bootcamps, Savi Joshi 2019 University of Pennsylvania

Technical Job Placement Success Of Coding Bootcamps, Savi Joshi

Joseph Wharton Scholars

Studies have addressed the inconsistencies and uncertainty of coding bootcamps despite the recent sensationalization of bootcamps as an opportunity to close the wage gaps. While high variability based on intensity, duration, and delivery exist, many of these bootcamps advertise high job placement rates and guarantee technical competency upon graduation. This study evaluates technical job placement rates for recent coding bootcamp graduates using public LinkedIn profiles, accounting for any technical experience prior to the bootcamp such as a technical undergraduate degree or previous employment. Through regression analysis and propensity-score matching, the study finds that while prior technical experience is the strongest ...


Gaining Access To The Language Of Science: A Research Partnership For Disciplined, Discursive Ways To Select And Assess Vocabulary Knowledge, Emily Hayden, Anupma Singh, Michelle Eades-Baird 2019 Iowa State University

Gaining Access To The Language Of Science: A Research Partnership For Disciplined, Discursive Ways To Select And Assess Vocabulary Knowledge, Emily Hayden, Anupma Singh, Michelle Eades-Baird

Education Publications

To equalize access to science learning across genders and demographic groups, access to the disciplinary language of science is one place to start. The language of science is highly challenging and specialized, and difficulties acquiring this language contribute to disparities in science achievement across diverse student groups. This study used a pre/post design to analyze effectiveness of a brief classroom science vocabulary assessment designed to assess receptive and productive vocabulary knowledge across multiple sections of one seventh-grade science teacher’s class. Vocabulary was selected and analysis conducted by an interdisciplinary research partnership, including the science teacher, a literacy specialist ...
