Gulley, Needham Yancey – Schole: A Journal of Leisure Studies and Recreation Education, 2021
The use of the "traditional"/"nontraditional" binary when referring to students in the context of higher education (especially in the United States) is so firmly established and compulsory that even when we try to challenge the dualism we often fall short. I believe that this has even happened in the current call for…

Fletcher, James Rupert – Research Ethics, 2021
This paper considers the potential for the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) of England and Wales to incentivise the exclusion of people with dementia from research. The MCA is intended to standardise and safeguard the inclusion of people with cognitive impairments in research. This entails various procedural requirements, which in pressurised research…

Gump, Steven E. – Office of Community College Research and Leadership, 2006
Community college faculty clearly do more than teach. When the potential scholarly activities of full-time community college faculty are narrowly defined as research, however, mission creep is insinuated, and community colleges are accused of attempting to encroach upon the purview of four-year research institutions in an expression of "goal…

Gunsalus, C. K.; Bruner, Edward M.; Burbules, Nicholas C.; Dash, Leon; Finkin, Matthew; Goldberg, Joseph P.; Greenough, William T.; Miller, Gregory A.; Pratt, Michael G.; Iriye, Masumi; Aronson, Deb – Qualitative Inquiry, 2007
Our system of research self-regulation, designed to provide internal checks and balances for those who participate in research involving human subjects, is under considerable stress. Much of this crisis has been caused by what we call mission creep, in which the workload of IRBs has expanded beyond their ability to handle effectively. Mission…

Kennerknecht, Norbert J.; Scarnati, James T. – American School & University, 1998
Discusses how to keep school district capital-improvement projects within budget. Examines areas where runaway costs creep into a project and ways of cutting or lessening these costs, such as using standard agreements, controlling architect's expense reimbursements, developing a quality-control process, and reducing document duplication.

Harmon, Tim; Bragg, Debra D. – Community College Research Initiatives, 2020
As part of our research on the community college baccalaureate (CCB), we studied the prospects of adopting and scaling CCB degrees in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Higher education leaders in these six Great Lakes states recognized the potential for CCB degrees to increase academic, geographic and financial access to…

Ostenson, Joseph A.; Clegg, Joshua W.; Wiggins, Bradford J. – Review of Higher Education, 2017
We argue that academic life is increasingly giving way to forces of industrialization and that many of the problems confronting higher education arise within this transformation. We discuss how a culture of standardization has led to academic monocultures; how faculty autonomy has been subverted by topdown management structures; how locally based…

Kim, Hyejin; Mobrand, Erik – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2019
Across Asia, the international school scene has experienced marketisation and corporatisation. A consequence is that many wealthier families -- outside of expatriate communities -- view international schools as a desirable choice, and they seek ways to enrol their children in international schools. States have responded to this situation through…

Kassiola, Joel J. – College Teaching, 2007
This article argues that the dominant invidious segmentation in American higher education between universities designated as "research" institutions and those relegated to "teaching" status is both erroneous and deleterious. Moreover, the trend of increasing research activities at master's institutions is not, as followers of the current…

Walby, Kevin; Luscombe, Alex – Research Ethics, 2018
Freedom of information (FOI) requests are increasingly used in sociology, criminology and other social science disciplines to examine government practices and processes. University ethical review boards (ERBs) in Canada have not typically subjected researchers' FOI requests to independent review, although this may be changing in the United Kingdom…

Marzetti, Hazel – Teaching in Higher Education, 2018
The absence of data regarding UK university students' sexualities and trans identities has, for too long, rendered lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT+) student communities invisible. This interview-based study aims to explore the experiences of LGBT+ students at a Scottish university, beginning to address this gap in research. This study…

Goodwin, Bryan – Educational Leadership, 2021
Some bad ideas never seem to die, despite research showing they do not actually work. It can be hard to spot them at first. Those dispelled education theories that research shot down long ago. They creep up in studies, shuffling around mumbling in the reference lists, or moan loudly in blog posts. The author often stumbles across these…

Riley, Clarence E., Jr.; Green, Gregory – Education, 2012
Every day someone is faced with the news that they are dying or that they have a loved one who is dying. Often times this is very unsettling and fear creeps into their hearts for one reason or another. This paper is an attempt to identify the most common reasons for that fear, and offer suggestions for handling that fear in a Christian manner.

Quin, Thomas M. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2013
Fluency with poroelastic theory is prerequisite to advanced study of material and mass transport properties in a wide range of contexts. Often the greatest challenge in introducing students to the subject is to help them visualize the fluid flows and deformations that accompany phenomena such as creep and stress relaxation. We have developed a…

Chipman, Susan F. – 1988
The problem of sex bias in mathematics word problems is discussed, with references to the appropriate literature. Word problems are assessed via cognitive science analysis of word problem solving. It has been suggested that five basic semantic relations are adequate to classify nearly all story problems, namely, change, combine, compare, vary, and…
