Teaching during rounds : a handbook for attending physicians and residents by Donn Weinholtz( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Teaching during Rounds is a compact, practical handbook designed to help attending physicians and residents improve their teaching skills, specifically in the context of medical rounds. Donn Weinholtz and Janine Edwards focus on the types of rounds usually encountered on inpatient services in departments of internal medicine or pediatrics, but the general principles they elaborate may be applied elsewhere." "Weinholtz and Edwards begin by presenting the different groups of people who may participate in rounds: medical students, interns, residents, attending physicians, and others. They then address the orientation process and the need to allocate time for teaching. They discuss methods of teaching in the conference room as well as at the bedside. And they stress the importance of providing constructive feedback and involving other health professionals in the educational process." "Throughout the book, Weinholtz and Edwards illustrate their points with concrete examples and real-life anecdotes, largely taken from their own research. Teaching during Rounds is an important book for attending physicians and residents as well as for all with an interest in medical education. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

Restructuring an Urban High School. Fastback 323 by Donn Weinholtz( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet challenges assumptions about the hopelessness of educational reform in urban high schools by presenting the stories of: (1) Theodore Sizer's Coalition of Essential Schools; and (2) Metro High School in Cedar Rapids (Iowa), a school that participates in the Coalition. Following an introduction, the Coalition of Essential Schools program is described, including a listing of nine common principles for the Coalition of Essential Schools and data on attendance, academic performance, discipline, and the pursuit of higher education; the success of Coalition schools is indicated. Another section describes the experiences, the students, the school climate, and the faculty of Metro High School, which joined the Coalition in 1985. a section on the school administrators describes what was originally supervision by three lead teachers and the current on-site principal who functions much as a lead teacher. A section on academics describes a curriculum that has focused on basic skills and practical electives with an increasing emphasis on accelerated academic coursework in recent years. Also described are Metro High School's "vocademics" program, which helps students explore career choices, and a report of data indicating positive outcomes at this school. A concluding section offers reflections on the Metro High School experience and final thoughts. Fourteen references are included. (Jb)
A Developmental Model for Teaching in Experiential Learning Settings by Donn Weinholtz( Book )

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

A model for distinguishing effective and ineffective educational practices in experiential learning settings is described. The model is an adaptation of Hare's developmental phases of successful learning in classroom settings. During the orientation phase, the instructor communicates to learners what they are expected to accomplish. In the experiential learning setting, the acquisition phase involves reliance on a loosely-structured instructional scenario, whereby teachers take advantage of educational opportunities as they present themselves. During the practice phase of the experiential development model: (1) group members increasingly assume responsibility for initiating and maintaining activities related to their skill development; (2) the instructor maintains a low level of control; and (3) instructional activities occur outside of the work situation. The work phase involves the learner in using skills while pursuing tasks independent of the instructor's supervision. Finally, evaluation of individual and group performance occurs in the termination phase. The instructional leadership role and applications of the model to instructors on a medical service are discussed, along with further application of the experiential development model. (Sw)

Community college advising coordinators : understanding their roles as middle managers by Brian P Kapinos( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This phenomenological exploratory study examined how community college advising coordinators described their roles as middle managers. This study was conducted in an effort to address the lack of empirical research regarding the perceptions community college advising coordinators have of the institutional and administrative challenges confronting the delivery of academic advising services. The conceptual framework for this study employed Floyd and Wooldridge's (1992) theory, a typology of middle management involvement in strategy. Their theory can be used as a lens for viewing the advising coordinator's ability to influence advising policy and institutional advising practices from the perspective of middle management. The overarching research question for this study was: How do community college advising coordinators describe their roles as middle managers? Additionally, four corresponding research sub-questions were examined to gain an understanding as to how advising coordinators describe their roles, levels of institutional influence on advising policies and practices, and the limitations of their roles within their institutional advising models. A total of 13 community college advising coordinators from two undisclosed northeastern states participated in this study. The findings from this study yielded the following major conclusions. Community college advising coordinators may encounter a variety of institutional issues with coordinating advising services such as the quality of advising services being provided to students institutionally, their ability to assess and evaluate advising services on their campus, and managing institutional communication regarding advising services in their roles as middle managers. In addition, given the limited scope of authority and control over advising services as middle managers, community college advising coordinators may have trouble meeting the expectations of senior management if those expectations require institutional coordination that transcends the scope and direct responsibilities of their positions. Finally, community college advising coordinators who have an elevated role within the institution's organizational structure are likely to encounter fewer administrative and logistical issues with the coordination of advising services on their campuses due to their increased status and supervisory oversight."
A qualitative case study examining the reports of directors of non-university urban school leadership preparation programs, New Leaders Inc. by Noha Abdel-Hady( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This qualitative case study examined the non-university urban school leadership preparation program, New Leaders Inc., and sought to examine the reports of their program directors regarding how the program instructs aspiring school principals in the development of their leadership capabilities. New Leaders Inc. is not affiliated with a specific university or higher educational institution. New Leaders Inc. is a grant-funded program. This qualitative case study examined the non-university urban school leadership preparation program, New Leaders Inc., and sought to examine the reports of their program directors regarding how the program instructs aspiring school principals in the development of their leadership capabilities. New Leaders Inc. is not affiliated with a specific university or higher educational institution. New Leaders Inc. is a grant-funded program. Urban school leadership preparation program directors interviewed in this study reported that their program supports residents in developing their leadership capabilities through: developing and embracing a change vision, working in collaboration with stakeholders and building relationships, and the practical hands-on coaching during a yearlong residency program. This study found that Ancona’s (2005) leadership framework perfectly aligns with the leadership capabilities enacted in the program under investigation. A surprising alignment to Kotter’s (2014) eight-step change model also emerged from the findings of this study."
Lived experiences of novice Catholic elementary school principals : educational, spiritual and managerial leaders, experiencing burnout and answering the call for the new evangelization by Louis F Howe( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The purpose of this qualitative, phenomenological study was to examine novice Catholic elementary school principals' reports of their lived experiences as they relate to their multi-dimensional roles as educational, managerial, and spiritual leaders (Ciriello, 1996, 1998a, 1998b) in Northeastern U.S. Diocesan Catholic elementary schools. This study particularly explored the challenges novice Catholic elementary school principals faced, whether they experienced burnout, and if they felt they were adequately prepared in faith leadership. The research was designed to assess if novice principals are adequately prepared to take on the responsibility of being Catholic elementary school principals and able to fulfill their responsibilities regarding Pope Francis' call for the New Evangelization in Catholic schools (Rieckhoff, 2014). Results from the study showed novice Catholic elementary school were confident in some areas of their multi-dimensional, leadership responsibilities, while perceiving themselves as weak in other areas. Some perceived strengths included working well with their local school board and getting along with their pastors. While some were weak in the role of cultural and symbolic leader. The majority of principals who participated in this study, also reported burnout, as described by Maslach's (1998) multi-dimensional burnout theory. Results also showed the novice principals are not familiar with Pope Francis' call for the New Evangelization in the Catholic schools. Included in the study are recommendations for practice, focusing on the specific responsibilities required of the novice Catholic elementary school principal as educational, spiritual, and managerial leader, as well as future research considerations in Catholic elementary school administration. Several of the recommendations for practice include: more professional development opportunities by the diocese in faith formation and development, offering courses in theology and liturgy, and principals being more involved in the annual budget process. Future research might involve comparing experiences of novice and veteran principals, the effect spiritual leadership has on Catholic identity, and looking at the success of different diocesan school models."
An intelligence-based approach to evaluating project management education : applying Sternberg’s Triarchic Model of Successful Intelligence to explore project managers’ perceptions of their education by Glenn R Knight( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This purpose of this exploratory qualitative research study was to examine the reports of project managers regarding curriculum gaps in project management curriculum using Sternberg’s Triarchic Theory of Successful Intelligence (Sternberg, 1989). The literature of the Project Management Institute (PMI), a licensing body founded in 1969, with the purpose of advancing careers, improving organizational success, and maturing the project management profession, reveals that through the decade ending in 2020, 15.7 million new project management roles will be created. In the United States alone, the profession has been defined as a top three priority by executives, and is expected to grow by US $6.61 trillion, (McKinsey Global Survey, 2010; PMI, 2013). Yet, PMI (2013) reports that organizations are wasting an average of $97 million for every $1 billion invested, due to poor project performance. Sternberg’s Triarchic Theory of Successful Intelligence (1997) was chosen as a theoretical framework for this study because it aligns with key skill sets in project management."

Overcoming the odds : black males who persist in a one-year manufacturing certificate program at a community college by Marisa Marquez Rubera( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This phenomenological, qualitative study investigated the pre-college, college, and post-college experiences of Black males in a one-year manufacturing certificate program at a predominantly White, public community college. Harper's (2010) Anti-Deficit Achievement Framework was used to guide this study. The aim of the study was to identify factors that influenced Black males' persistence to graduation and address the lack of empirical research focused on this demographic in these programs. Participants were 12 Black male adults ranging in age from 20 to 46, who graduated from one of four manufacturing certificate programs: machining, welding, electronics, and electro-mechanical. Semi-structured, individual, face-to-face interviews were conducted. Data were coded manually and analyzed using analytic circles (Creswell, 2013). Findings revealed family, high school, and out-of-school college preparation factors that positively influenced the pre-college experiences of Black males in this study. Various classroom, out-of-class engagement, and enriching educational factors were found to positively influence the college experiences of the study participants. Several career readiness factors were also identified as having an influence on the persisters' post-college experiences. The study conclusions, whose generalizability should be examined through further research, indicate that Black males who persist and enroll in a manufacturing certificate program come from: families with parents who attended or graduated from college; and high schools with school personnel who provided them with information about college. In addition, Black males enroll as a result of parental educational expectations; engaging in conversations about college prompted by a parent or family member; and as a result of previous college attendance. Black males who persist in a manufacturing certificate program actively participate in the learning process; and utilize multiple resources to support their learning and socialization beyond the classroom. Black males who persist have positive relationships with instructors, staff, and administrators; follow the manufacturing curriculum; and are prepared for career employment."
The influence of Black and Latino male K-12 educators’ life histories on their career choices by Margaret A Daley( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"A gendered and racial narrative that excludes the experiences, perspectives, and voices of Black and Latino male educators has dominated research regarding identity development and career choice. The purpose of this qualitative life history study was to provide Black and Latino male K-12 educators an opportunity to share their lived experiences and what influenced their career choices. The researcher used a qualitative life history design to develop the methodology for this study. The primary research question guiding this study was: What do Black and Latino male K-12 educators in Connecticut describe as influential factors in choosing their careers as K-12 educators? Research sub-questions were derived from the ecology of human development theory (Bronfenbrenner, 1979) which divides an individual’s environment into five levels that influence the individual’s development. At each level, individuals are influenced either directly or indirectly by environmental factors and relationships. These five levels include the microsystem, the mesosystem, the exosystem, the macrosystem, and the chronosystem. This study included three of the five levels of the ecology of human development theory (Bronfenbrenner, 1979). It concentrated on the microsystem (which is comprised of direct relationships and their impact), the mesosystem (which includes indirect relationships and their impact), and the macrosystem (which is the cultural environment). The participants in the study included eleven Black and five Latino male K-12 educators in Connecticut public schools. Participants engaged in a timeline exercise and a semi-structured interview about their life histories and influences on their career choice. The data were analyzed using a qualitative open coding method. From this data analysis the researcher presented findings, conclusions, and recommendations. The findings of this study revealed that Black and Latino male K-12 educators have influential factors to their career choices from the microsystem, mesosystem, and macrosystem levels. The participants in the study shared insights into their development, experiences, relationships, and perspectives that influenced their career choices."
The reports of middle school mathematics teachers regarding their intercultural effectiveness (IE) by Ralph Minaya( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This mixed method study examined the reports of middle school mathematics teachers from an urban New England school district regarding their classroom intercultural effectiveness (IE). The main focus was on the extent to which the teachers recognized their levels of intercultural effectiveness, their perceptions of the impact that their preparedness had on student learning, and the type of professional development they perceived as necessary to enhance their intercultural effectiveness. Portalla and Chen’s (2010) Intercultural Competence (ICC) model was used as the study’s conceptual framework. Their Intercultural Effectiveness Scale (IES) was used to quantitatively assess the middle school mathematics teachers’ reports of intercultural effectiveness. Open-ended, qualitative interviews were also conducted to provide a sample of the participants to elaborate on their survey responses. Twelve math teachers participated in the Intercultural Effectiveness Scale survey, and seven of them participated in a follow up face to face interview. African American, Latinx, and Caucasian were the three ethnic groups that participated in this study. The study’s findings are organized and presented according to the research questions, which reflect the five components of the IE domain; message skills, interaction management, Behavioral Flexibility, identity management, and relationship cultivation. The most prominent finding that emerged from this investigation was that six out of the seven interview participants reported that they struggle embedding culturally relevant content in their math curriculum, and therefore they had limited opportunities to establish the desired cultural connection with students which might cause the students to fully engage in mathematics learning. Another key finding was that African Americans comprised the ethnic group reporting the highest scores on the IES survey. The implications of this study’s findings strongly suggest that the participating urban school district should train mathematics teachers on the five components of the Intercultural Effectiveness domain, and future research must be conducted to learn about the intercultural competence of faculty of the teacher training programs that prepare urban math teachers."
The diffusion of educational technology as an instructional tool : a case study within a single-sex, postsecondary educational institution in Saudi Arabia by Dalal Tharwi Alshammari( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This qualitative, exploratory, single-case study examined female faculties' reports in an institution in Saudi Arabia regarding the diffusion of educational technology as an innovative instructional tool in a single-sex, postsecondary education institution. The study of educational technology includes “the content to be learned, the format of instructional messages, and the interaction between computers and students” (Winn, 2002, p. 331). For the purpose of this study, educational technology is defined as hardware and software technologies such as computers, information and communications technology (ICT), distance education, e-learning, and other applications that can be used for instructional or learning purposes. Rogers (2003) diffusion of innovation guided this study and served as the theoretical lens. The model consists of five characteristics that influence the rate of adoption include relative advantage, compatibility complexity, trialability, and observability. Interview questions were researcher-developed and based on the survey instrument developed by Moore and Benbasat (1991) and Rogers (2003) theoretical framework. A total of fifteen full-time female faculty members from one education department within a university located in Saudi Arabia were recruited to participate in this study, using the snowball sampling strategy. This analysis yielded 27 findings. Female faculty reported that there were educational benefits gained as well as technology-related problems. The diffusion of innovation was impacted by the discipline in which they teach, inaccessibility, lack of technical and institutional support, and the unavailability of needed technology, university trainings and workshops. Female faculty also noted that personal time constraints, influenced their use of educational technology."
