Borrie, Stephanie A.; Barrett, Tyson S.; Willi, Megan M.; Berisha, Visar – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2019
Purpose: Conversational entrainment, the phenomenon whereby communication partners synchronize their behavior, is considered essential for productive and fulfilling conversation. Lack of entrainment could, therefore, negatively impact conversational success. Although studied in many disciplines, entrainment has received limited attention in the…

Hodge, Brad; Wright, Brad; Bennett, Pauleen – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Despite the fact that both workplace and training environments can be inherently demanding, these environments sometimes manage to elicit a level of engagement and enthusiasm that is surprising. The Job Demands-Resources (JD-R) model has been used extensively within the workplace to predict both engagement and burnout. It suggests that high…

Grainger, Peter; Heck, Deborah; Christie, Michael – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
This paper builds on an earlier study that developed a 10 question framework for improving the quality of criteria sheets (also known as rubrics) used in Master of Education programmes. To test that framework 15 rubrics were independently evaluated by seven teachers using the above mentioned framework. Raw data from the evaluations were collated…

Freire, Melquesedeque; Talanquer, Vicente; Amaral, Edenia – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Understanding the nature of chemical thinking and action, as well as their application and impact on our world should be central goals of chemistry education at all educational levels. However, traditional school chemistry is still mostly focused on having students learn the body of declarative knowledge built over the years in the discipline.…

The first IDEA Public Schools' campus opened in 2000, just miles from the US-Mexico border in Donna, Texas. Fast-forward nearly two decades, and 79 IDEA public charter schools serve approximately 45,000 students across six regions, and those students consistently outperform their peers statewide on a range of metrics from proficiency to graduation…

Tseng, Jun-Jie – Research-publishing.net, 2019
Over the past decade, there has been an increasing interest in research on teacher knowledge about technology integration, namely Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK). However, few studies have investigated how teachers transform their teaching with technology. To fill this gap, the present study adopted the Substitution,…

Seraphin, Sally B.; Grizzell, J. Alex; Kerr-German, Anastasia; Perkins, Marjorie A.; Grzanka, Patrick R.; Hardin, Erin E. – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2019
The concept of "non-disposable assignments" (NDAs), including those referred to as "renewable assignments," has grown in popularity in recent years in select education circles, particularly alongside an enthusiastic push toward open pedagogy. Unfortunately, little organized literature exists to effectively define, implement,…

Sweet, Tracy M. – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2019
There are some educational interventions aimed at changing the ways in which individuals interact, and social networks are particularly useful for quantifying these changes. For many of these interventions, the ultimate goal is to change some outcome of interest such as teacher quality or student achievement, and social networks act as a natural…

Henry, Meredith A.; Shorter, Shayla; Charkoudian, Louise; Heemstra, Jennifer M.; Corwin, Lisa A. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2019
Navigating scientific challenges, persevering through difficulties, and coping with failure are considered hallmarks of a successful scientist. However, relatively few studies investigate how undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students develop these skills and dispositions or how instructors can facilitate this…

Alonzo, Alicia C.; Elby, Andrew – Cognition and Instruction, 2019
As scientific models of student thinking, learning progressions (LPs) have been evaluated in terms of one important, but limited, criterion: fit to empirical data. We argue that LPs are not empirically adequate, largely because they rely on problematic assumptions of theory-like coherence in students' thinking. Through an empirical investigation…

Uchida, Satoko – Physics Teacher, 2019
Practical hands-on experience is an effective component of science education. Lessons that involve demonstrations allow learners to explore and verify information learned from other sources (for example, reading a textbook). As a demonstration for use in a science educational setting, we developed a way to make a variable focal length lens using a…
