Assuming the risk : the mavericks, the lawyers, and the whistle-blowers who beat big tobacco by Michael Orey( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Orey recounts the unprecedented defeat of big tobacco. In 1985, Nathan Horton, a building contractor in rural Mississippi, developed a chronic ache in his left shoulder. A year and a half later, he was dead from lung cancer. In his final, painful months, Horton had filed suit against the manufacturer of the cigarettes he had smoked for more than thirty years. Horton, who was black, found a most unlikely lawyer to pursue his cause with near-religious zeal: Don Barrett, an arch-segregationist in his youth and an unapologetic defender of the Old South. When he took up his dying neighbor's case, Barrett knew full well that no tobacco company had ever paid a cent to anyone who claimed that smoking had harmed their health." "The individuals joining forces in Mississippi included a washed-up actor-turned-paralegal who copied thousands of pages of internal company documents; a Gulf Coast lawyer whose almost accidental foray into asbestos litigation had made him a multimillionaire; and the state's maverick attorney general, who authorized a pioneering suit against the tobacco industry to make it pay for the health care costs of smoking." "In detail, journalist Michael Orey tells how these people came together and did what no one else before them had: defeat the tobacco industry."--Jacket

Three Years of Intelligent Tutoring Evaluation : a Summary of Findings by Michael Orey( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past 3 years, a variety of studies in intelligent tutoring system (ITS) effectiveness have been conducted. A summary is provided of the research into the use of POSIT, MALM, and the Mobile Subscriber Remote-Telephone Terminal (MSRT) Tutor. POSIT is an ITS for the tutoring of whole-number subtraction. It assumes that the learning of a cognitive skill builds from declarative knowledge. MALM, which makes use of some of the latest computer-based instructional technologies, was designed so that problem solving in an Army communications network can be explored in a computer environment. The MSRT Tutor teaches operating procedures for one of the Army's mobile telephones. Studies conducted with each of these ITS systems suggest that an ITS has the potential for being effective for instruction, especially with procedural knowledge. An ITS may be used as a change device to change the role of the classroom teacher from one that is largely disciplinary to one that is more facilitative. Help and error feedback seem to be the most useful features of an ITS. The use of off-the-shelf development packages is a great boost to the use of ITSs, since hours of design and development can be cut short. (SLD)

Integrating Cognitive Theory in to Gagne's Instructional Events by Michael Orey( Book )

3 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper explores the possibility of integrating cognitive theory into an established instructional development model, I.E., Gagne's nine events of instruction. Based on the third edition of Gagne's book, this paper describes the most up-to-date notions of how cognitive theory impacts on this development framework. Each of the nine events is presented in a separate section, together with the learning process associated with that instructional event and current cognitive theories as they relate to it: (1) Gaining Attention. Reception of patterns of neural impulses; (2) Informing the Learner of the Objective. Activating a process of executive control; (3) Stimulating Recall of Prerequisite Learnings. Retrieval of prior learning to working memory; (4) Presenting the Stimulus Material. Emphasizing features for selective attention; (5) Providing Learner Guidance. Semantic encoding; cues for retrieval; (6) Eliciting Performance. Activating response organization; (7) Providing Feedback about Performance Correctness. Establishing reinforcement; (8) Assessing the Performance. Activating retrieval; making reinforcement possible; and (9) Enhancing Retention and Transfer. Providing cues and strategies for retrieval. It is concluded that, although not all of the events of instruction match up perfectly to cognitive theory, cognitive apprenticeship, or microworlds from constructivistic learning theory, instructional developers can keep the field in a state of growth by conducting further studies of new learning theories and how and if they are complementary to existing theories of instructional development.

Understanding and supporting college students' help-seeking behavior by Erkan Er( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Asking for help is a fundamental strategy that learners use to overcome barriers to learning in any context. The positive effects of help-seeking on student learning and achievement have been widely acknowledged. Help-seeking has gained further attention with the emergence of new blended instructional models that embrace student-centered approaches and place a greater responsibility on students. Among these emerging blended approaches, the flipped classroom model has been very popular in last years. The flipped classroom model requires students to independently study the instructional materials and various learning resources (e.g., video lectures) outside the classroom and develop a sufficient understanding of the concepts. While studying the assigned materials themselves, students may face various learning difficulties that can be resolved with the support of class members at any time, and in this way, they can become prepared for the upcoming in-class activities. Therefore, help-seeking is an essential activity for student learning in flipped classrooms. This dissertation research focuses on college students' help-seeking behavior in a large-enrollment flipped science classroom over several semesters and aims to expand the current understanding of online help-seeking in several directions. The first manuscript (Chapter 2) provides a detailed description of initial design and evolution of a web-based help-seeking tool (EchoLu). The second manuscript (Chapter 3) reports on an empirical study that uses a mediation structural equation model to investigate the effects of motivational and environmental factors on help-seeking. The fourth manuscript (Chapter 4) delineates the main study of this dissertation which investigates the role of instructors in help-seeking. Besides exploring the causal links between instructor-related factors and students' help-seeking perceptions and intentions, this study also examines the extent to which students' perceptions are influenced by instructor participation in students' online help-seeking. The findings suggest a substantial influence of instructors on help-seeking. In particular, their relatedness with students, their support for help-seeking, and the goal structure that they promote in the classroom are strongly associated with students' help-seeking perceptions and intentions. The findings also suggest a possible influence of instructor participation in online help-seeking environments. The implications and future research directions are discussed at the end (Chapter 5)
