What's social about social cognition? : research on socially shared cognition in small groups by Aaron M Brower( )

19 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cognition research and theory has become a major focus of attention within academic psychology over the past 15 years. However, most social cognitive research has tended to focus on the social thinker in isolation, neglecting the impact of social interactions on cognition. A cutting-edge collection from integral figures in social cognition and small group fields, What's Social About Social Cognition? fills a lapse in the literature while exploring social phenomena within small groups. Significantly augmented from a special issue of Small Group Research, this volume answers the demand for a greater social emphasis in social cognition research by examining decision making, prejudices, motivations, emotions, and reciprocal influences between and among small group members. And while the entire book provides a springboard for future research on the social processes and aspects of social cognition, a special chapter anticipates the importance of this new research focus. Presenting the latest empirical research at the interface between cognitive and social psychology, this volume will appeal to social and personality psychologists specializing in social cognition as well as group researchers in both applied and theoretical behavioral sciences. What's Social About Social Cognition? will also prove an invaluable textbook for social psychology survey courses that focus on current theories and for research methods courses in which social cognition models are presented

Prototype Matching and Striving for Future Selves Information Management Strategies in the Transition to College by Aaron M Brower( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Entering college students commonly complain of being inundated with confusing information about attending a college or university, while student services personnel complain that regardless of the efforts placed on making the information "user friendly," students never seem to assimilate what they receive. This paper analyzes the literature and examines the sequence of time frames within which student decisions are made during their transition to academic life. The review finds six distinct time periods in students' transition to college: (1) the initial inquiry to acceptance; (2) the acceptance to the student's summer orientation visit; (3) the summer orientation visit itself; (4) the student's arrival on campus before classes begin; (5) the student's first semester; and (6) the student's second semester. The review finds that student decision-making processes can be described using information management strategies of prototype-matching and striving-for-future-selves. The paper makes the case that universities and colleges can most effectively present different information and services to students by knowing the particular time period they are in and the particular information-processing strategy being used. Contains 69 references. (GLR)

The University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Flexible Option for Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree Completion( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : The 2010 "Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health" report from the Institute of Medicine recommended that 80% of registered nurses (RNs) obtain a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree by 2020. Hospitals with BSN nurses have reduced morbidity and mortality. In 2014, the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee and the University of Wisconsin–Extension launched the University of Wisconsin Flexible Option BSN (UW Flex BSN) as an additional model for BSN degree completion, adding to the in-person and online delivery models already being offered. In this article, the authors examine the decision to launch the UW Flex BSN program as a competency-based, time-variable approach to RN-to-BSN degree completion. They discuss the factors contributing to its success (including proactive, wraparound support for students through the use of academic success coaches and regular and substantive interaction with faculty), design and program elements and decisions, and continuing challenges that have yet to be resolved. UW Flex BSN is one version of direct-assessment, competency-based education, and it represents the first of its kind in a public institution for postlicensure BSN degree completion. The program meets all Higher Learning Commission standards and requirements and is grounded in the American Association of Colleges of Nursing Baccalaureate Essentials and program quality standards. The UW Flex BSN for degree completion is a successful example of a competency-based, time-variable education model that has been applied in a practice discipline
