Major Obstacles and Best Practices in International Educational Exchanges by Rea Alsup( Book )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To study best practices in the area of international exchange, a survey was conducted of member institutions of the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges. Responses were received from 19 institutions about practices, activities, services, and other program aspects considered to be exemplary. Questions were also asked about challenges and obstacles to international exchange among colleges. Some universities appear to be faring well in international exchange, with more qualified international applicants than they can accommodate and an international staff that is adequate in numbers and efficient in its tasks. Others are not doing that well. The issue of finances permeated all responses to all survey items, and all respondents asserted that increased financial support is a key ingredient for successful progress toward their goals. Institutional commitment to the goals of international exchange was frequently identified as an obstacle to exchange programs. The need for a central office to coordinate international exchange was cited as an advantage by institutions that had such an office, and as an obstacle by institutions that did not. Almost all institutions indicated that the requirements of the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the Internal Revenue Service imposed a formidable burden on international staff time and resources. This study was designed and carried out before September 11, 2001, and since then, it appears that challenges to international educational exchange have increased. An appendix lists the responding institutions. (Sld)
Educational Research in Latin America A Twelve-Year Perspective by Everett Egginton( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By reviewing the content of education items in the Handbook of Latin American Studies during the last 12 years, this paper traces and documents trends in research on Latin American education. Analysis of the items revealed the changing emphasis of educational topics from volume to volume. Judgments are made on type, geographical focus and topics of research. A comprehensive classification system (included in Appendix) was developed. All abstracts in each of the education sections of the Handbook since 1969 (Nos. 31-43, odd numbers) have been systematically examined and coded according to this system. Data are analyzed in three parts: (1) general characteristics of the publications reviewed in the Handbook's education sections since 1969; country or regional focus, dates of publication, format, special features, and type of research; (2) summary of reviewers' critical assessments of the publications with respect to the date, type and language, as well as type of research and educational topic; and (3) summary by region of reviewers' critical assessments, date, type and language of the publications, as well as type of research and educational topic.

Comparison of Indicators of Educational Quality Among Institutions of Higher Education in El Salvador by Marco A Munoz( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El Salvador has a new higher education law that established minimum requirements for educational quality. Analyzing data from El Salvador's 39 private universities made available by the country's Ministry of Education, this study assesses educational quality among these universities, especially addressing the effect of the size of the university on the quality of education. Eight indicators of quality were assessed. The data were collected with a survey designed and administered by the Ministry of Education. Principal component factor analysis was used to identify clusters of highly correlated indicators, and comparison of means was used to determine quality differences by size. Small institutions had higher rankings--lower ratios--in the following indicators of quality: overall student to faculty ratio, full-time student to full-time faculty ratio, students to computer ratio, and students to computers connected to the Internet ratio. Large institutions had higher rankings in these areas of quality: library holdings, percentage of full-time faculty, percentage of faculty with 5 more years teaching experience, and percentage of faculty with graduate degrees. Middle sized institutions were in the middle on all indicators of educational quality. Overall, there was considerable variation among all the universities assessed, indicating a wide variation of education quality among universities within their size group. Principal component factor analysis identified three clusters of variables linked to quality: time, interaction, and faculty. Implications for policy and administrative practice are discussed.

Contemporary Research on Latin American Education A Review and Profile by Everett Egginton( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To prepare the education chapter for the forthcoming volume of the U.S. Library of Congress'"Handbook of Latin American Studies," the author reviewed over 500 publications on Latin American education issued between 1978 and 1983; the abstracts of approximately 200 of them will be published in the forthcoming volume of the Handbook. The research described herein analyzes this selected material and the material contained in previous Handbook volumes from three perspectives: (1) a survey perspective or a statistical profile of the publications, (2) a country or regional perspective, and (3) a developmental perspective. The paper concludes that while lacunae exist and rigorously designed and convincingly argued research is scarce, the publications continue to be abundant, varied in scope, and diverse in the range of topics explored.

The Use of National Survey Data in Teaching Methods of Survey Research by Everett Egginton( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A description is given of a college course in survey research and attitudinal measurement offered by the School of Education at the University of Louisville. The graduate level course focuses on the principles of social research; survey research methods; and data analysis, interpretation, and application. National survey data are used to teach all facets of index and scale construction, including item selection and analysis and internal and external validation for a variety of different kinds of indexes and scales. Through the use of national survey data, students are also able to: (1) apply principles of survey research to studies conducted at a national level; (2) analyze data from national surveys which include relatively large numbers of respondents; (3) gain insight into how questionnaires are constructed for very large and disparate samples; and (4) use a mainframe computer. This paper first describes the course, its background, and its syllabus; it then describes briefly two methods of increasing student participation; and finally, it describes in specific terms and with examples how national survey data are used to teach index and scale construction.

Four Topics in Latin American History The People; Nation Building; Race, Class, and Identity; and Foreign Policy: U.S. and Latin America by Everett Egginton( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This curricular unit is intended for use at the secondary level. The understandings in Topic I are organized under four main heaings: The Indigenous Population or the pre-Columbian civilizations; The Immigrants from Europe and West Africa; Slavery In Latin America during the pre-colonial and colonial periods and, Race mixture including racial types, racial policies, racial and social stratification. Topic II has four parts: The Colonial Period; Latin America and Independence; Nation Building and the Period of Anarchy; and, Cuba: A Case Study in Ideological Penetration. The main emphasis in Topic III is on the concept of identity. The concepts of race and class are briefly discussed, and a flexibile model of each is developed. The objective of Topic IV is to deal with the historical ambiguities inherent in our Latin American foreign policy, both the rationale for it, and the effects on the Latin American people. The methodology suggested for the development of the various concepts with these topics is an inductive, case study approach. There are approximately 33 pages of bibliographies of teacher and student resources on each subtopic. In addition, SO 000 350 and SO 000 351 are related documents. (SBE)
Pretest Posttest Attitudinal Survey by Everett Egginton( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This survey is designed to measure student attitudes both before and after an ethnic study unit is taught. It is part of the Louisville Area Ethnic Heritage Studies Project described in ED 150 043. The project materials are designed to foster communication across intercultural/ethnic lines. The test is comprised of 79 statements, such as "A free society is one in which people with different backgrounds and beliefs can still work together for a common goal." Students have four choices--they indicate whether they strongly disagree, disagree, agree, or strongly agree with the statements made, making their choice twice, once for "the way it is," and once for "the way it ought to be." Other statements include "People should accept each other's ways of thinking and behaving,""Often schools look upon ethnic studies as a way to please the community,""I am often torn between what my family wishes me to do and what my peers wish me to do,""I don't care what people say, I've found that there is some truth to every stereotype,""It shouldn't make any difference whether your doctor is a man or a woman," and "I can usually tell what a person is like by the way he/she is dressed."

Underlying Factors Associated with Dropping Out and Factors Impacting At-Risk Students' Attitudes toward School A Comparison Study of Low-Income, White Females by Everett Egginton( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was conducted to compare the factors that student dropouts report as contributing to their dropping out of school with those factors that "at-risk" students report as influencing their attitudes toward school. These two sets of factors, assessed in two separate studies, include in-school and out-of-school experiences, socioeconomic factors, and participant attitudes toward schooling in general. The two studies obtained in-depth interview data from 65 white female school dropouts participating in the Kentucky Department of Education single parent/displaced homemaker programs and 68 white female disadvantaged high school students considered "at-risk." Findings revealed that respondents from both studies consistently reported home-life experiences which were highly incompatible with school demands (lack of discipline, little parental interest in school/education, many home responsibilities, financial problems, abuse). Respondents from both studies reported problems with peer pressure, drug use, and absenteeism. Other findings concern the relationship between teenage pregnancy/parenthood/marriage and dropping out.

Ethnic Identification and Perception of Racial Harmony by Everett Egginton( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary objective of the court-mandated busing plan in Jefferson County (Kentucky) is to promote racially integrated schools and classrooms. The numerous protests since 1975 in Louisville over court-mandated busing are evidence of a low level of intercultural understanding and tolerance. This paper seeks to probe a source of the misunderstanding and intolerance by examining the way white students and minority students who have been brought together through court-ordered busing perceive racial tension and harmony. A sample of 464 white and minority busing-integrated middle and high school students were interviewed. The analysis of their responses revealed that white students perceive somewhat more tension in their integrated classrooms than do minority students, yet minority students are willing to accept less racial harmony than are the white students. A suggestion advanced is that more research be conducted into the attitudinal dispositions of white and minority students in integrated schools so as to more fully understand the sources of racial tension.

An Overview of the Louisville Area Ethnic Heritage Studies TeacherTraining and Curriculum Development Project by Everett Egginton( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper describes an ethnic studies project which was designed in 1975 to foster communication across intercultural/ethnic lines in the newly integrated public schools of Louisville, Kentucky. Resulting from cooperative efforts of the Louisville Chamber of Commerce, the Jefferson County Public Schools, and the Center for International Education of the University of Louisville, the project focussed on the following tasks: (1) organizing an ethnic heritage conference for Louisville teachers, students, and community members; (2) evaluating existing ethnic heritage curriculum materials; (3) producing television documentaries and monographs describing ethnic groups; (4) compiling a Louisville community resources index; and (5) organizing ethnic and cultural fairs in local junior high and high schools. Evaluation of the project reveals increasing interest in ethnic studies, despite specific shortcomings due to attempting too many tasks in too short a period with too little money. Tangible outcomes of the one year project include the development of 12 new curriculum units and six television documentaries. The conclusion is that the project created a foundation for ethnic studies curriculum. (Author/DB)
