Kloss, Dean – Schools: Studies in Education, 2018
Contemporary academic scholarship has devoted a tremendous amount of effort to documenting the prevalent standardized, formal schooling environment.

Long-term fear memory formation in the hippocampus and neocortex depends upon brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) signaling after acquisition.

After the vote the instructor…

Arensman, Bodille; van Waegeningh, Cornelie; van Wessel, Margit – American Journal of Evaluation, 2018
Theory of change (ToC) is currently "the" approach for the evaluation and planning of international development programs. This approach is considered especially suitable for complex interventions. We question this assumption and argue that ToC's focus on cause-effect logic and intended outcomes does not do justice to the recursive nature…

A recent (2017) study of the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that the unemployment rate for 20-24-year-olds, the age when many graduate from university and enter the workforce, is nearly twice that of all other age groups. The startling statistic suggests that more can be done to better prepare undergraduates for the workplace.…

Dache-Gerbino, Amalia – Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, 2018
In an effort to challenge the dominant discourses of college access and highlight nondominant discourses of college access such as geographic racism and segregation, I employ a Critical Geographic College Access (CGCA) framework. This framework consists of critical geographic theories such as power-geometry and spatial mismatch. Using Geographic…
