Maitra, Srabani; Guo, Shibao – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2019
In the age of transnational migration, the practices and policies of lifelong learning in many immigrant-receiving countries continue to be impacted by the cultural and discursive politics of colonial legacies. Drawing on a wide range of anti-colonial and anti-racist scholarship, we argue for an approach to lifelong learning that aims to…

Hepburn, Shamette; Sintos Coloma, Roland – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2019
This paper examines how ageing transmigrants engage in practises that serve to decolonise life course in order to create increased opportunities to live well. It analyses the experiences of Jamaican Canadian older adults (age 60 and older) who decided to remain in Canada, return to Jamaica, or travel between countries after retirement. As…

Cui, Dan – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2019
This paper examines the dominant knowledge construction in Canadian public schools. Using the grounded theory approach, thirty-six Chinese Canadian youths and young adults were interviewed in Alberta. Drawing on critical, anticolonial and Bourdieusian perspectives, I argue that some teachers' racialised habitus and biased knowledge constructions…

Using several case studies drawn from Freire's cultural context and contemporary Canadian Indigenous resistance movements, this article questions whether a Freirean approach to critical literacy can work with Indigenous literacy needs without reproducing colonial power structures. It also seeks to examine current scholarship in the literacy…

Bowman-Smith, Celina K.; Shtulman, Andrew; Friedman, Ori – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Young children often deny that improbable events are possible. We examined whether children aged 5-7 (N = 300) might have more success in recognizing that these events are possible if they considered whether the events could happen in a distant country. Children heard about improbable and impossible events (Experiments 1A, 1B, and 2) and about…

Paquette-Smith, Melissa; Buckler, Helen; White, Katherine S.; Choi, Jiyoun; Johnson, Elizabeth K. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Language and accent strongly influence the formation of social groups. By five years of age, children already show strong social preferences for peers who speak their native language with a familiar accent (Kinzler, Shutts, DeJesus, & Spelke, 2009). However, little is known about the factors that modulate the strength and direction of…

Vendetti, Corrie; Kamawar, Deepthi; Andrews, Katherine E. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
We told ninety-nine 4- and 5-year-olds stories in which speakers told lies and truths in two contexts: those told to deny a transgression (misdeeds) and those told to spare another's feelings (politeness). Participants identified each statement as a lie or as the truth, morally judged it as good or bad, and decided whether or not to assign…

Tembrevilla, Gerald; Milner-Bolotin, Marina – Physics Education, 2019
This paper describes how future physics teachers' involvement in annual Family Math and Science Day--a public outreach event at the University of British Columbia, Canada--has a potential to transform them as physics demonstration experts and amateur video producers. These science demonstration videos serve as teaching and learning resources not…

Zdaniuk, Agnes; Gruman, Jamie A.; Cassidy, Scott A. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Research on the pedagogical value of providing students with PowerPoint (PPT) slide handouts has produced mixed results. One reason for the inconsistent findings may be that most studies in this stream of research have neglected to examine individual differences. In the current study, we aimed to advance research on the pedagogical value of…

Sheehan, Dwayne P.; Lienhard, Karin – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
The objective of this study was to evaluate gross motor competence and growth spurt in Canadian youth. Eighty-two children (38 boys, 44 girls) were assessed over a time period of five years. Growth rate was measured quarterly; motor competence was evaluated once per year using the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency. Peak height velocity…

Stearns, Jodie A.; Wohlers, Brendan; McHugh, Tara-Leigh F.; Kuzik, Nicholas; Spence, John C. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
The reliability and validity of the PLAY"fun" and PLAY"basic" tools were assessed. The PLAY"fun", PLAY"basic", Canadian Agility and Movement Skill Assessment (CAMSA) obstacle course, and Physical Activity Questionnaire for Children (PAQ-C) were administered to children (aged 8-14 years) in two remote…

Simper, Natalie; Frank, Brian; Kaupp, Jake; Mulligan, Nerissa; Scott, Jill – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2019
Critical thinking, problem solving and communication are fundamental elements of undergraduate education, but methods for assessing these skills across an institution are susceptible to logistical, motivational and financial issues. Queen's University conducted two research studies investigating the use of standardised tests to assess cognitive…

Yeo, Michelle; Boman, Jennifer – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Change in assessment practice in higher education tends to lag behind pedagogical change. Thinking about assessment practice is, in part, related to disciplinary thinking. In this study, 27 faculty members from a broad range of disciplines were interviewed about their conceptions of assessment to help understand the distinctions and priorities of…

Hoffmann, Matt D.; Loughead, Todd. M. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
Using a multiphase approach, the purpose of the present study was to develop a psychometrically sound questionnaire to measure protégés' perceptions of peer athlete mentoring functions. Phase 1 consisted of three stages: (a) item development, (b) assessment of content validity via think-aloud interviews with peer mentored athletes, and (c)…

Andreadakis, Eftichia; Joussemet, Mireille; Mageau, Geneviève A. – Early Education and Development, 2019
Autonomy-supportive parenting is found to foster children's adjustment but relatively few studies have been conducted with toddlers. In the present exploratory study, parents (N = 182) reported what practices they use when asking their toddlers (M age = 26.9 months) to engage in important yet uninteresting activities. Parents rated twenty-six…
