The Influence Of Career-Technical Student Organizations On Non-Traditional And Traditional Community College Students, Suzanne Lee Johnson Dec 2008

The Influence Of Career-Technical Student Organizations On Non-Traditional And Traditional Community College Students, Suzanne Lee Johnson

Dissertations

Student organizations have been contributing to adult education for years. The need to recruit non-traditional students and retain them is very important to the financial support of the career and technical program. If a career-technical student organization (CTSO) can encourage retention and completion of traditional and non-traditional students in a field of study, the state might realize the need to increase the funding provided to the advisers/instructors of the CTSO and the financial support of the CTSO. This study investigated what motivates a student to become an active member in a CTSO and to what extent the CTSO contributed ...

College Governance Greater Than Before: Modernization & Simplification Through Web 2.0 Technologies, Jeffrey R. Bickford Jun 2008

College Governance Greater Than Before: Modernization & Simplification Through Web 2.0 Technologies, Jeffrey R. Bickford

CCLA Capstone Projects

There were several tools available to governance members that didn’t quite match the needs. The College has a successful portal environment, but the groups featured within the portal were cumbersome to navigate. Email was heavily used and was beginning to grow into a problem due to the volume of messages. Tracking revisions of documents in email is also problematic. A college network shared drive was available but often people forgot to check for new documents which led to updates being emailed. The shared drive was also difficult to connect to from off campus. It was time for a new ...

Findings indicate an uneven playing field for women on their way to a presidency.


Differences By Degrees: Providing Services To Adult Students Based On Degree Level Pursued, Kathy L. Rix Jun 2008

Differences By Degrees: Providing Services To Adult Students Based On Degree Level Pursued, Kathy L. Rix

Dissertations

This study examined the perception of adult students pursuing different degree levels (bachelor, master, doctoral) to determine if there are differences in their needs for support services. A two-part, mixed methods design was used, consisting of an online survey and follow-up interviews with a small subset (13) of the survey respondents.

A survey instrument was developed with 44 dependent variables covering services, as determined from the literature, that could be most important to adult students. The online survey was distributed to 2,029 adult students at a Midwestern, doctoral, research intensive university. Criteria for selection as part of the population ...

Celebration Of The Committee On Beautiful Ideas, Judith Summerfield Apr 2008

Celebration Of The Committee On Beautiful Ideas, Judith Summerfield

Touchstone

I take this project seriously, this COBI. It is, for me, the most unconventional, sound, and forceful project at CUNY. The project is unconventional: it flies in the face of prevailing winds that make us to attend to depersonalized gerunds and reified nouns: teaching, learning assessment; to outcomes, summations, totals that signal failures, deficiencies; to inabilities that signal impossibilities. Failure rates, killer courses, remediation, that can level the faint at heart.

Reflections Of Women Leading Community Colleges, Pamela L. Eddy Apr 2008

Reflections Of Women Leading Community Colleges, Pamela L. Eddy

School of Education Articles

As the “people’s college,” community colleges have a reputation of being more welcoming of women — as students, faculty, and administrators (Townsend & Twombly, 2006). However, the current percentage of women leading community colleges, which is hovering at 29% (American Council on Education, 2007), begs the question of why parity is not witnessed at the helm of these colleges, especially when 57% of community college students are women (NCES, 2004). The present phenomenological study investigates the positions six women presidents hold, critical incidents that have impacted their career decisions, the role of mentoring, and how these leaders are encouraging others that ...

Reflections On Experiences Of Learning With Malcolm Shepherd Knowles, John A. Henschke Edd Jan 2008

Reflections On Experiences Of Learning With Malcolm Shepherd Knowles, John A. Henschke Edd

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

Malcolm S. Knowles stands as a giant catalyst at the juncture - past, present, and future - of andragogy (the art and science of helping adults learn) within the field of Adult Education and Human Resource Development. For more than 50 years until his death in 1997, Malcolm devoted his personal and professional life to exemplifying the theory and practice of andragogy: as a speaker to audiences of 10,000 or less; as a university professor with a multiplicity of adult learners (his students); as a consultant to numerous institutions and corporations in countries around the world; as a writer of 19 ...


A Global Perspective On Andragogy: An Update, John A. Henschke Edd Jan 2008

A Global Perspective On Andragogy: An Update, John A. Henschke Edd

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

Andragogy has received mixed reviews in the past. Some have analyzed in from a positive perspective. Some have analyzed it from a negative perspective, and some have ignored it altogether. Most of the discussions have limited their observations to how Malcolm S. Knowles addressed andragogy. There has been an inadequate investigation of the foundation and background of andragogy from a world perspective. This research presents 240 major works published in English from national and international sources on andragogy that may help provide a clear and understandable international foundation for the linkage between the research, theory, and practice of andragogy. Six ...


Comparing The American And European Perspectives On The International Concept Of Andragogy And The Implications For The Development Of Adult Education Theory And Practice, John A. Henschke Edd Jan 2008

Comparing The American And European Perspectives On The International Concept Of Andragogy And The Implications For The Development Of Adult Education Theory And Practice, John A. Henschke Edd

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

In this research paper we present a thorough picture of both the American and European perspectives on andragogy. We believe this to be much needed in the ongoing development of what many erroneously consider a static concept.


In The Middle: Career Pathways Of Midlevel Community College Leaders, Regina L. Garza Mitchell, Pamela L. Eddy Jan 2008

In The Middle: Career Pathways Of Midlevel Community College Leaders, Regina L. Garza Mitchell, Pamela L. Eddy

Articles

The leadership crisis in community colleges has led to speculation on who will lead these colleges in the future and how best to prepare leaders for these positions. Traditionally, little research occurred regarding midlevel administrators despite the fact that the majority of presidents come from within the ranks. The findings from this research show that midlevel administrators have little desire to move into top-level positions. Colleges need to consider how to make leadership more attractive and begin developing leaders for future openings.
