Goswami, Rahul – International Journal for Transformative Research, 2022
In Nagaland, a state in India's North-East region, the morung is a tribal institution that serves as an educational portal through which all young men passed as the means of learning their living heritage. Described by anthropological accounts, for a century until the 1950s, as a 'dormitory' for boys and young men, it is in fact much more. It is a…

Pruett, Dave – International Journal for Transformative Research, 2022
Humanity is in a tight race between planetary catastrophe and enlightenment. It is not clear which will prevail. The old paradigm, that of materialism, individualism, and fierce competition, is failing at all levels--economic, social, political, and environmental--and bringing life as we know it to the edge of a precipice. At the same time, a…

Egan, Kieran; Crotty, Yvonne – International Journal for Transformative Research, 2020

Hawley, Ruth; Allen, Cate – International Journal for Transformative Research, 2018
Student-generated video creation assessments are an innovative and emerging form of assessment in higher education.

Walton, Paul H.; Walton, Daniel J. – International Journal for Transformative Research, 2016
The traditional "leaky pipeline" plots are widely used to inform gender equality policy and practice. Herein, we demonstrate how a statistical phenomenon known as Simpson's paradox can obscure trends in gender "leaky pipeline" plots. Our approach has been to use Excel spreadsheets to generate hypothetical "leaky…
