Webster, David; Rivers, Nicola – Pedagogy, Culture and Society, 2019
This paper addresses the turn towards discourses of resilience within Higher Education, and its shared conceptual space with notions of 'grit' or the promotion of a Growth Mindset. Of particular concern is how these discourses reinforce simplistic conceptualizations of students as 'millennial snowflakes' in need of 'toughening up'. Whilst…

Strekalova-Hughes, Ekaterina – International Journal of Multicultural Education, 2019
In this paper, I analyze representations of refugee flight in children's literature to extrapolate related assumptions about power and agency. The findings suggest that picturebooks tend to adhere to refugee flight as a bureaucratic process and refugee as an institutionally imposed standardized identity. Specifically, stories canonically mirror…

Downes, Paul – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
There is a danger that transition becomes a concept that aids the official reality of a school or education system to mask the unofficial system difficulties. This article distinguishes four very different understandings of transitions that underpin research in education on this issue. Going beyond a typical systems framework for understanding…

Jannati, Ali; Spalek, Thomas M.; Di Lollo, Vincent – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 2011
Report of a second target (T2) is impaired when presented within 500 ms of the first (T1). This attentional blink (AB) is known to cause a delay in T2 processing during which T2 must be stored in a labile memory buffer. We explored the buffer's characteristics using different types of masks after T2. These characteristics were inferred by…

Pyscher, Tracey – International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), 2020
In this article, I wonder on how to differently teach in the times of Trump where the old masks of domination (e.g., racism, sexism, homophobia) are made more explicit "while" also critically bearing in mind how other larger discourses like neoliberalism shapes our responses to the fascist leanings embodied in Trumpism. I explore how the…

Using tenets of political psychology, this article analyzes educational implications of contemporary Hollywood partisan political film through two critically acclaimed films released in 2018, "Vice" and "On the Basis of Sex." I argue that these films appeal to confirmation bias and motivated reasoning through the use of…

Experiments are described that involve undergraduates learning concepts of nanoscience and chemistry. Students prepare nanopatterns of organosilane films using protocols of particle lithography. A few basic techniques are needed to prepare samples, such as centrifuging, mixing, heating, and drying. Students obtain hands-on skills with nanoscale…

Jannati, Ali; Spalek, Thomas M.; Lagroix, Hayley E. P.; Di Lollo, Vincent – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 2012
Identification of the second of two targets (T2) is impaired when presented shortly after the first (T1). This "attentional blink" (AB) is thought to arise from a delay in T2 processing during which T2 is vulnerable to masking. Conventional studies have measured T2 accuracy which is constrained by the 100% ceiling. We avoided this problem by using…

Argyropoulos, Ioannis; Gellatly, Angus; Pilling, Michael; Carter, Wakefield – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 2013
Object-substitution masking (OSM) occurs when a mask, such as four dots that surround a brief target item, onsets simultaneously with the target and offsets a short time after the target, rather than simultaneously with it. OSM is a reduction in accuracy of reporting the target with the temporally trailing mask, compared with the simultaneously…

Edwards, Keith E.; Jones, Susan R. – Journal of College Student Development, 2009
The theory that emerged from this constructivist grounded theory study of 10 college men's experiences depicts their gender identity as developed through constant interaction with society's expectations of them as men. In order to try to meet these perceived expectations, participants described putting on a performance that was like wearing a mask…

Every fall season, each grade level of Rowland Hall St. Mark's Lower School in Salt Lake City, Utah, completes a mask-making project to be featured in a schoolwide parade.
