Flexible Learning - E- Primer Series   http://www.flinz.ac.nz/course/view.php?id=20  Site Reviews(0)
E-primer series 'E-learning’. What a concept! It’s a serious activity in education -- rich in ideas and promise. But for many faculty e-learning consists of learning how a learning management system works, generating some online discussion, and just getting on with it. For other faculty it’s threatening, a vast unknown. This E-Primer series aims to make the unknown known, to place e-learning in a context of learning theory, institutional development, and instructional design. It examines the role of faculty, good practice in hybrid course design, and the dynamics of online discussion -- and places all of these in a coherent context, drawing from refereed sources and 7 years of dedicated experience. The series of E-Primers includes: 1. E-learning in context An introduction to e-learning and the international experience; definitions of terms; a theory for e-learning; technologies; benefits. (PDF, 478KB) 2. E-education and faculty Education theory and e-learning; the changing role of faculty; workload issues; quality. (PDF, 277KB) 3. Designing for e-learning Instructional design; learning objects; constructing a hybrid course. (PDF, 521KB)

Secrets of Successful Facilitators   http://www.thiagi.com/article-secrets.html  Site Reviews(0)
We spent the past 10 years in some futile field research. We interviewed and observed several facilitators and the groups they facilitated in an attempt to identify the secrets of effective facilitation. These facilitators were selected on the basis of high ratings by their peers and participants for a positive process and productive results. Initial data from our observations and interviews were disappointing and confusing. We did not find consistent, common behaviors among these effective facilitators. Further, even the same facilitator appeared to use different behaviors with different groups, even when conducting the same small-group activity. The same facilitator sometimes used different behaviors with the same group within the same activity at different times. As we collected and classified more data and reflected on the patterns, we realized the real secret of effective facilitators was buried within the apparent inconsistency. We re-examined the data and came up with these five conclusions: * Effective facilitators are flexible. They modify their small-group activities before and during use. * Effective facilitators are adaptive. They modify their small-group activities along six critical tensions. * Effective facilitators are proactive. Before using a small-group activity, they modify it on the basis of the characteristics of the participants and the purpose of the activity. * Effective facilitators are responsive. They make modifications during the small-group activity to keep the different tensions within acceptable ranges. * Effective facilitators are resilient. They accept whatever happens during the small-group activity as valuable data and smoothly continue with the activity.

Flanders Interaction Analysis Technique The teaching-learning situations in the class-room involve interaction between the teacher and the students. The success of a teacher may be judged through the degree of effectiveness of his teaching which may be objectively assessed through his class-room behavior or interaction. Thus a systematic or objective analysis of the teacher’s classroom interaction may provide a reliable assessment of what goes on inside the class-room in terms of teaching and learning.

NativeNations   http://www.kstrom.net/isk/tribes/tribes.htm  Site Reviews(0)
Native Nations in the U.S. and Canada are recognized (often only after considerable struggles and litigation) as indigenous nations with a measure of sovereignty. It is therefore necessary to distinguish between national websites prepared by or with acknowledgement of and responsibility to, these nations, and unofficial sites about history, culture or current events for a particular tribe. That distinction seems especially important on an educational "metasite" such as this one, whose users range from people totally naive about all of Native history to people deeply involved in actually making that history now.

Female Community College Presidents -Effective Leadership Patterns and Behaviors   http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/tandf/ucjc/2005/00000029/00000004/art00004  Site Reviews(0)
Abstract: Drawing from the theory of transformational leadership and community-college literature, the purpose of this study was to determine the leadership patterns and behaviors of female chief executive officers (CEOs) in the community-college system in rural, suburban, urban, and inner-city settings. This study further investigated whether there was a significant relationship between the leadership patterns and behaviors of female chief executive officers and other factors such as the race/ethnicity of the CEO, the educational level of the CEO, the experience of the CEO, and enrollment. Specifically, the participants included female community-college presidents whose colleges were members of the American Association of Community Colleges. The participants were asked to rate 30 items on a 10-point scale on the 5 patterns of actions identified by the Leadership Practices Inventory by Kouzes and Posner, 2003. Participants were also asked to fill out a questionnaire, which was developed by the researcher. Descriptive and analytical statistics were used to analyze the data in this study. With a response rate of 72%, 126 of 175 CEOs responded. There were no significant differences found between rural, suburban, urban, and inner-city presidents and the 5 leadership patterns. The results indicated female community-college presidents differed in their leadership patterns according to race/ethnicity, experience, and education. Findings also indicated there were significant differences between leadership patterns and the percentage of fulltime students enrolled.

A Family Affair: The Impact of Paying for College or University   http://www.millenniumscholarships.ca/en/research/family_e.pdf  Site Reviews(0)
Over the past decade, major shifts have taken place in the funding of Canadian post-secondary education, with implications for the financing of student participation. More of the costs of postsecondary education (PSE) are now being borne by students, while governments have reduced their direct post-secondary funding on a per-student basis. The evidence suggests that many families may be unprepared for the costs they will face in helping their children pursue a postsecondary education. The big gap in our knowledge concerns the strategies families are using to manage the costs of PSE. The issue of the impact of PSE costs on families is a broad one. It concerns students and their choices, parents and their strategies, and the interactions between the two. How are young people being affected? Are they choosing programs based on affordability rather than preference? Are they attending college rather than university, living at home rather than moving out, or postponing PSE? What are the trends in, and levels of, total family debt related to PSE? How do rising family costs affect patterns of post-secondary participation?

Focusing New Teachers on Individual and Low Performing Students: The Centrality of Formative Assessm   http://www.tcrecord.org/Content.asp?ContentID=11554  Site Reviews(0)
Mentoring novice teachers often features buddy support, technical advice, and classroom management tips to meet teacher-centered concerns of survival. Such mentoring aligns with conventional models of teacher development that describe the novice concerned with self-image, materials and procedures, and management, and only after the initial years, able to focus on individual student learning. Drawing on the wisdom of practice of 37 experienced teacher induction leaders and case studies of mentor/new teacher pairs, this study found that mentors can interrupt that tendency among new teachers, focusing them on the learning of individual students, especially those underperforming. For this work, mentors tap knowledge of student and teacher learners, pedagogy for classrooms and for tutoring teachers, and especially multi-layered knowledge and abilities in several domains of assessment. These include assessment of students, alignment of curriculum with standards, and formative assessment of the new teacher. Skillful use of this knowledge can bring individual student learning into focus and help new teachers generate methods for shaping instruction to meet students' varied learning needs. These results challenge developmental models of teaching and conservative mentoring practices, calling for articulation of a knowledge base and relevant mentor development to focus new teachers early on individual student learning.
