Learning by Sarnoff A Mednick( Book )

15 editions published between 1964 and 1973 in English and held by 1,303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The facts of learning are among the basic facts of behavior. For this reason learning principles have been applied in a variety of fields. In education, teaching machines are a direct product of operant conditioning principles; the teaching machine is likely to be an opening wedge in an application of learning principles to the field of education. In industrial and defense applications, principles of the learning of motor skills are crucial in the design of man-machine systems. This list only begins to scratch the surface of the topic, and this book addresses the salient basic facts gathered to date concerning the learning process

The phenomenology of everyday life by Howard R Pollio( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Phenomenology of Everyday Life presents results deriving from a rigorous qualitative approach to the psychological study of everyday human activities and experiences. This approach is grounded in the philosophical traditions of existentialism and phenomenology and employs dialogue as its major method of inquiry. The reasons for these choices are not arbitrary; all derive from the view that a proper study of human events must be framed in terms of a philosophy explicitly developed to encompass human activities. In addition, such events can properly be investigated only on the basis of a method sensitive enough to articulate the nuances of human experience and reflection. The purpose of the present work is not to replace scientific observation with humanistic analysis but to provide an additional perspective on significant human questions. The Phenomenology of Everyday Life should be of interest to anyone concerned with obtaining a clear and comprehensive description of someone else's experience. This includes students and professionals concerned with clinical or social psychology, sociology, anthropology, social work, philosophy, nursing, and education. Also included are individuals involved in research and practice in business, marketing, architecture, and law

Training manual for identifying figurative language by Jack M Barlow( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research into figurative language requires observers who are trained to identify and record figures of speech with a high degree of reliability. This present manual serves that purpose. Divided into four major parts, each part presents a particular class of figurative language, including a general description of the class of tropes represented in that section. In addition, each part is further subdivided into (1) a didactic exposition of one or more figures of speech; (2) a programmed instruction section; and (3) a practice discussion section. This final section is designed to serve both as a practice session for identifying and categorizing figures of speech from conversational prose and as a "rap" session designed systematically to work out discrepancies between raters. Through such an arrangement, it is hoped that differences due to rater unreliability will be minimized. (Hod)
Hermes in the Classroom: Interpreting What Expert College Lecturers Say About Teaching by Howard R Pollio( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This pamphlet explores the results of a study concerning what expert lecturers are aware of during their lectures. Results of interviews with seven college lecturers, recipients of university teaching awards, are reported, as are summary evaluations of each professor's classroom where an audio tape was made of that day's lecture. Each evaluation is described in terms of salient themes and compared to all remaining interviews to determine whether similar themes appeared across protocols. Five themes are discussed: (1) connection, relevance/isolation, irrelevance; (2) excitement, interest/boredom, dullness; (3) continuity, flow/interruption, fragmentation; (4) clarity, precision/confusion, ambiguity; and (5) control, order/spontaneity, freedom. Each theme appears in all of the protocols produced and excerpts from each professor's interviews are provided for each theme. The pamphlet also examines, using the five themes as a background, how professors experience such aspects of teaching as questions, notetaking, jokes, and tests and grading. (Glr)
Any Questions, Please? by Howard R Pollio( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This pamphlet discusses the use of questioning in the college classroom and its contribution to learning. Starting with a brief examination of the ways children question, discussions cover: (1) the effects of linguistic and socio-linguistic characteristics in questioning; (2) questions in psychotherapy, law, and opinion polling; (3) classroom questioning from kindergarten to college; and (4) questioning as performed by college lecturers. Analysis of questioning at the college instructor level indicates that instructor questions at all levels are more like those of a lawyer than of a scientist (or child). In these cases the answers are already known by the questioner, there is an air of power associated with them, and the questioner is the one who initiates, directs, evaluates, and controls the flow of things. Therefore, unlike the child, scientist, or scholar, these questions do not seek answers for advancement of knowledge but rather to focus on past knowledge. Such questioning, it is argued, limits learning by being more oriented to the past and the authority of the questioner than toward the future and the autonomy of the answerer.

The development of figurative language in school children by Marilyn R Pollio( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elementary school students in the third, fourth, and fifth grades were asked to do three different tasks in an attempt to determine how frequently children at these various ages use figurative language. Results for a Composition Task showed that children tend to produce a greater number of frozen than novel figures, and that the absolute level of such usage decreased over the three grades. Results for a Multiple Uses Task revealed that children tended to produce more frozen than novel figures and that both types of figures showed a marked increase over grade. Results for a Comparison Task also indicated that the use of figurative language increased over grade level and that under the conditions of this task, children used more novel than frozen figures. All in all, present results were taken to mean that the Composition Task is not a particularly good one for assessing developmental trends in figurative language usage. In addition, these results show that children as early as the third grade are able to use figurative language effectively, and that a Comparison Task represents one good way in which to encourage children to use novel figurative language.

Mindfulness in everyday life : an empirical study of mindfulness as it is experienced in ordinary life among long-term vipassana practitioners by Jacqueline Lou Kracker( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This phenomenological look at the experience of mindfulness in everyday life situations is framed against the background of traditional Theravadin Buddhist descriptions and contemporary Western psychoanalytic ideas of the experience of mindfulness. The research laid out by Pollio, Henley, and Thompson (1997) and by Thomas and Pollio (2002) was used. In-depth, open-ended interviews are conducted with nine participants who were judged to have stable, long-term (four years or longer) vipassana meditation practices, as determined by three full-time vipassana teachers. The emergent thematic structure includes six major themes and several subthemes: (1) Present and Aware, (2) Spacious and Open, including subthemes, (a) Spacious and (b) Open (Not Judging), (3) Clear and Knowing, with subthemes (a) Alive and Embodied, (b) Seeing Clearly, and (c) Knowing Wisdom, (4) Not Separate (Connected), (5) Not Identified (Self-less), and (6) Free, including subthemes (a) Freedom and (b) Choice. Additional results include relationships among the themes and three non-thematic aspects that relate to the experience of mindfulness over time: (1) Mindfulness Comes and Goes, (2) Facilitating Factors, and (3) Changes Over Time. This work empirically validates the experience of mindfulness as described in the Buddhist literature and the psychological literature although interesting differences in emphasis were found among the three perspectives: traditional, psychological, and first-person participant accounts. It is my hope that this study will further understanding of mindfulness from both theoretical and practical perspectives
