Ch. 05 - Transforming Music Education Re-Visited: The Significance Of Internationalization And Mentoring, Alexandra Kertz-Welzel Jan 2020

Ch. 05 - Transforming Music Education Re-Visited: The Significance Of Internationalization And Mentoring, Alexandra Kertz-Welzel

The Road Goes Ever On: Estelle Jorgensen's Legacy in Music Education

This chapter returns to Jorgensen’s 2003 publication Transforming Music Education. Kertz-Welzel revisits significant aspects of transformation in music education which Jorgensen suggests, and which are still important today. The author also emphasizes additional dimensions that are critical in the 21st century, such as internationalization and mentoring. Through the formation of the International Society for the Philosophy of Music Education, philosophy of music education was significantly transformed. Internationalization in a respective field is always connected to the engagement of individual researchers who shape it and attract others to become part of it. Therefore, mentoring young scholars is an important ...


African American Women’S Perceptions About Double Jeopardy And Mentoring In The Federal Government, Fatimah Pierce Jan 2020

African American Women’S Perceptions About Double Jeopardy And Mentoring In The Federal Government, Fatimah Pierce

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Research shows that women’s leadership development can be fostered through gender-based mentoring. However, even when involved in gender-based mentoring relationships, African American women face additional challenges due to the intersectionality of their race and gender, often known as “double jeopardy.” The purpose of this phenomenological study was to explore how this intersectionality shapes African American women leaders’ perceptions about their gender-based mentoring experiences from the perspectives of both mentors and protégés. The theoretical framework for this study was Black feminist thought. One research question and two subquestions addressed the role of intersectionality, the benefits and challenges of gender-based mentoring ...


Mentorship Of The Female Worship Leader, Tammy L. Jarboe Dec 2019

Mentorship Of The Female Worship Leader, Tammy L. Jarboe

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

In recent years, some evangelical churches have seen a rise in the number of females involved in worship ministry leadership. Despite the female worship leader’s significant call to ministry, many challenges still exist in fulfilling God’s call on her life. Some of these challenges include clarity of call, difficulties in a male-saturated work environment, and perceived lack of opportunities for ministry. Additionally, some female worship leaders feel marginalized by the reluctance of churches to ordain them to the ministries in which they already serve. Although this paper will not address the question of whether women should or should ...


A Phenomenological Exploration Of Women’S Attitudes Towards Women Mentoring Other Women In The Church, Natasha Amy Pettigrew Dec 2019

A Phenomenological Exploration Of Women’S Attitudes Towards Women Mentoring Other Women In The Church, Natasha Amy Pettigrew

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

This qualitative phenomenological study explores the attitudes and views of women towards mentoring other women in the church for discipleship purposes. Although there are many benefits to women entering into a mentoring relationship for discipleship purposes, including spiritual growth, increase in the practice of spiritual disciplines, staying grounded in the Christian faith, and experiencing deeper intimacy with Christ, there is still a significant percentage of women who are not doing so. The researcher surveyed 37 Christian women between the ages of 18 and 65 to explore their attitudes and views towards women mentoring one another in the church for discipleship ...


Sharpening Iron: Developing A Mentoring Program To Train New Lay Pastors, Seth A. Normington Aug 2019

Sharpening Iron: Developing A Mentoring Program To Train New Lay Pastors, Seth A. Normington

Doctor of Ministry Projects

Congregations in the Presbyterian Church (USA) look to their pastor for spiritual, organizational, and missional leadership, but many congregations in villages and rural areas are having difficulty recruiting, affording, and retaining ordained clergy to fill pastoral leadership roles. The Presbytery of Northwest Coast located in parts of Washington and Alaska seeks to fill the need for pastoral leadership in these congregations by training and supporting lay pastors.

The purpose of this doctoral project is to develop a systematic mentoring network for the training of new lay pastors using clergy as mentors. This project will establish the vision and core values ...


Mentoring And Coaching As A Strategy For Empowering Millennials, Ken Bringas Aug 2019

Mentoring And Coaching As A Strategy For Empowering Millennials, Ken Bringas

Doctor of Ministry Projects

The purpose of this project is to engage young Christian leaders in a process of leadership development through mentoring and coaching in order to cultivate leaders for future generations at New Life. New Life has preserved and raised three generations of disciples that have faithfully served in the church. Yet the church has struggled to adequately address the leadership crisis that looms. This is particularly evident with the millennial generation represented at New Life, those born approximately between 1981 and 1996. This age group is an integral part of the church, but it is slowly diminishing in number and influence ...


Critical Mentorship For Black Girls: An Autoethnography Of Perseverance, Commitment, And Empowerment, Krystal Huff Apr 2019

Critical Mentorship For Black Girls: An Autoethnography Of Perseverance, Commitment, And Empowerment, Krystal Huff

LMU/LLS Theses and Dissertations

Working class Black girls experience multilayered oppression informed by their triadic social identity that sits at the intersection of race, gender, and class in their lives and more specifically in their schooling experiences (Collins, 1986, 1989; Onyeka-Crawford, Patrick, & Chaudry, 2017). A variety of mentoring practices have been adopted among educators throughout the public-school system to remedy the impact of poor educational opportunities for Black girls. In contrast to the use of traditional mentorship practices that solely focus on the individual, critical mentorship seeks to engage and support the cultural, political, and economic contexts that positively shape the experiences and aspirations ...

Minister As Mentor: A Biblical Model For The Preparation Of A Mentoring Ministry At First Baptist Church In Reidsville, North Carolina, Thomas Leroy Barksdale Ii

Divinity Projects

A preparation model was developed to equip mentors to effectively engage, encourage, and guide community youth. Members of the Christian faith have a responsibility to reach out and impact positively the next generations of leaders. Potential mentors were led through developmental sessions to prepare for the mentor relationships. Surveys, journal entries, pre-posttests, and questionnaires measured the effectiveness of the developmental weekly sessions and engagement.

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Abstract:

In any given field of life, no one succeeds in abstraction. In the library as a workplace, there must always be an interaction between individuals with one having more experience than the other on some aspects of the job in other to impact such knowledge and experiences on the other with the intention to build the individuals career, satisfaction and overall development of the organisation through mentoring. This guidance and directing process is known as mentoring which can be either formal or informal. This study focuses on aspects and outcome of mentoring female professional (academic) librarians in some selected ...


Understanding The Needs Of Fraternity, Sorority, And Cooperative Learning Students, Rachel Bremer, Harry Denny Oct 2018

Understanding The Needs Of Fraternity, Sorority, And Cooperative Learning Students, Rachel Bremer, Harry Denny

Purdue Writing Lab/Purdue OWL Presentations

This presentation draws inspiration from the Meaningful Writing Project and other studies of writing center usage. Instead of exploring who is coming in for tutorials, we study where students are getting support outside of writing centers. We confirm earlier research that Purdue students seek out writing help from parents and friends, and we hope to begin programming that empowers bother groups to act as better writing mentors.


Making A Difference In Learning Through Arts-Rich Pedagogy, Robyn Ewing Am Aug 2018

Making A Difference In Learning Through Arts-Rich Pedagogy, Robyn Ewing Am

2009 - 2019 ACER Research Conferences

There is unequivocal evidence that arts-rich pedagogies enhance student social and emotional wellbeing and, consequently, academic learning outcomes across the curriculum. Yet many primary teachers report they lack the expertise and/or confidence to embed quality arts processes and experiences in what is increasingly described as an overcrowded curriculum. This presentation reviews the research findings about the impact and sustainability of School Drama, an initiative developed through a partnership between the Sydney Theatre Company and The University of Sydney. An innovative co-mentoring teacher professional learning program and drama-based intervention, the program aims to develop primary teachers’ professional knowledge of and ...


“Ever Since I Left The City”: An Auto-Ethnographic Action Research Project On Interpreting In A K-12 Setting, Halle Hamilton Aug 2018

“Ever Since I Left The City”: An Auto-Ethnographic Action Research Project On Interpreting In A K-12 Setting, Halle Hamilton

Master's of Arts in Interpreting Studies (MAIS) Action Research

This paper discusses the auto-ethnographic action research project that I conducted with the goal of improving my work as an interpreter and therefore reducing the “readiness to work gap” in my own professional practice. This action research project contained two different approaches with the goal of leading to self-improvement in my interpreting ability. The first approach involved working with a mentor to create goals that work toward the improvement of specific aspects of my interpreting process. This was typically done by selecting a sources text that would lend itself to practice working towards a specific interpreting goal. With limited mentoring ...

The Role Of Mentoring In The Careers Of Female Airline Transport Pilots, Paul E. Cline Feb 2018

The Role Of Mentoring In The Careers Of Female Airline Transport Pilots, Paul E. Cline

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Women have been a part of aviation since its inception, yet they have been traditionally underrepresented in the ranks of commercial pilots. This study explored what role mentoring played in the lives and careers of female Airline Transport Pilots (ATP).

It was determined that there was no statistically significant difference in self-reported perceptions of success between female ATP who had been mentored and those who had not. Of the female ATP who had been mentored, those who reported an informal mentoring relationship rated their relationship higher than those who reported a formal mentoring relationship when it came to career oriented ...


An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis Of The Lived Experiences And Mentoring Relationships Of Black Women Student Affairs Administrators, Tiffany Shawna Wiggins Oct 2017

An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis Of The Lived Experiences And Mentoring Relationships Of Black Women Student Affairs Administrators, Tiffany Shawna Wiggins

Educational Foundations & Leadership Theses & Dissertations

Contemporary literature regarding the experiences of Black women in higher education administration is scarce, and that which does exist, often focuses on those who serve in teaching faculty roles, and/or fails to provide a holistic perspective on the lives of those who makeup this group. Utilizing an interpretative phenomenological analysis approach, this qualitative investigation explored the lives of Black women college administrators from their perspective. Grounded in the theoretical framework of Patricia Hill Collins’s Black Feminist Thought, this study aimed to uncover the lived experiences of Black women student affairs administrators as they relate to their professional demands ...

Superbosses provides leaders of christian churches access to a discipleship model that is proven to work. the author emphasizes the personal development of each person within the organization. As people realize their true potential, are inspired, trained, equipped, and set free to accomplish their god given purpose in life, they will grow and pursue excellence with a passion rarely seen."

Las Historias De Latinos En Oregón: Canby, Oregón An Oral History Project Collaboration Between A Librarian And An Archivist, Natalia M. Fernandez

OLA Quarterly

In the spring of 2015, I began the oral history project Latinos en Oregón to document the stories of Oregon’s Latino/a communities. As the curator and archivist of the Oregon Multicultural Archives (OMA) at the Oregon State University (OSU) Special Collections and Archives Research Center, my job is to assist in preserving the histories and sharing the stories that document Oregon’s African American, Asian American, Latino/a, and Native American communities (Oregon Multicultural Archives, 2005). There are gaps in the historical record as it pertains to people of color in Oregon, and the OMA seeks to address ...


Impacting Rural Hispanic Communities By Reaching Out, Connecting And Providing Services At Different Levels, Patty Lara May 2017

Impacting Rural Hispanic Communities By Reaching Out, Connecting And Providing Services At Different Levels, Patty Lara

OLA Quarterly

In my role as an outreach specialist, I have created community events, partnered with various organizations, and participated in nontraditional programs in order to attract the vast Hispanic populations in the area to the various Hood River County libraries.

Hood River County is a rural community, and an estimated 31 percent of the population is Hispanic. The great thing about this community is that it has invested its efforts in honoring and accepting the Hispanic culture and bringing the community together as a whole. There is a little town named Odell, about eight miles south of Hood River, where I ...

Change Is The Only Constant: Serving The Latinx Community With Help From Reforma Oregon, Gabriela Martínez Mercier May 2017

Change Is The Only Constant: Serving The Latinx Community With Help From Reforma Oregon, Gabriela Martínez Mercier

OLA Quarterly

Part of the reason “change is the only constant” is cliché is because it holds true in many different contexts. Libraries are not what they were one hundred years ago. One could argue they are not even what they were fifty years ago. Societies evolve, populations fluctuate, and norms shift. As librarians, we are called to meet the needs of our patrons, though who or what falls under the umbrella term of “patrons” often depends on the library’s mission statement.

For the last few decades, the Latinx community has been seen as flourishing. Even with the recent decline in ...

Libros For Oregon: Collections Connect Communities A New Lsta Grant To Help More Oregon Libraries Take Advantage Of The Guadalajara Book Fair, Deborah Gitlitz

OLA Quarterly

Acquiring good books in Spanish for our libraries is a perennial challenge. In the fall of 2015, a discussion arose on some Oregon library listservs about the challenge of connecting our patrons with culturally-appropriate, high-quality Spanish books. Author Gitlitz gathered a team to put together an LSTA grant proposal for a project called “Libros for Oregon,” with a goal of increasing access to high-quality Spanish language books for the users of Oregon libraries, particularly smaller, rural libraries.

The project has three parts: (1) form an Oregon library book-buying cooperative (with new participants each year) to purchase materials for members at ...


Collection Diversity Has No Borders: A Librarian’S Experience At Fil, Cilelij And Filij, Patricia Morán May 2017

Collection Diversity Has No Borders: A Librarian’S Experience At Fil, Cilelij And Filij, Patricia Morán

OLA Quarterly

Many public libraries in communities where Spanish is a language preferred by a significant percentage of the population have dedicated Spanish language collections and bilingual/ bicultural staff that provides library services and programs. In Oregon, the Latino population is growing faster than the national average, and nearly half of Oregon Latinos are bilingual (Oregon Community Foundation, 2016). In alignment with best practices, and upholding the core values of our profession, libraries dedicate funds and shelving space to Spanish language materials to serve the informational, educational, and recreational needs of Spanish-speaking communities. Libraries that are dedicated to developing and maintaining rich ...

The Critical Role Of Mentoring For Pastoral Formation, Kenley Hall

Journal of Applied Christian Leadership

Denominational leaders view the M.Div. as the gold standard in preparing young men and women for ministry. however, academic training alone does not prepare someone for ministry. It must be paired with mentoring, defined as the intentional relationship between an experienced pastoral mentor and a young pastoral mentee for the purpose of pastoral formation. this paper explores the mentoring relationships between Barnabas and Paul, and Paul and timothy as instructive examples of the importance, process and impact of mentoring for pastoral formation. It concludes that Barnabas and Paul played a crucial role in the pastoral formation of their mentees.

Raising The Curtain: Investigating The Practicum Experiences Of Pre-Service Drama Teachers, Christina C. Gray, Peter R. Wright, Robin Pascoe

Australian Journal of Teacher Education

The practicum is internationally recognised as a valuable component of teacher education.
