SALG - Student Assessment of their Learning Gains - 0 views

  •  
    The Student Assessment of their Learning Gains (SALG) website allows instructors to gather learning-focused feedback from students. The SALG survey asks students to rate how each component of a course (e.g., textbook, collaborative work, labs) helped them to learn, and to rate their gains toward achieving the course goals. The SALG survey can be customized to fit any college-level course, and can be administered multiple times per course. A baseline instrument allows faculty to compare gains relative to incoming student characteristics.

ECCS - Students - Engineering Co-op - 0 views

  • International students and Co-op Co-op offers international students an excellent opportunity to gain Canadian work experience. International students can apply for Co-op opportunities, provided they have secured the required documentation and approvals to gain legal permission to work off campus. International students must have the following BEFORE applying for Co-op positions: Valid passport that will cover the extended duration of studies, including the work term(s), Valid study permit that will cover the extended duration of studies, including the work term(s), Valid work permit that will cover the duration of the work term(s). students should apply for work permits well before the anticipated start of the work term. Do not wait until you have been extended an offer! Paperwork processing could take weeks or months, and if the legal documentation is not obtained in time, the offer of employment will be forfeited. If you are an international student planning to apply for Co-op positions, speak to ECCS staff when you register in Co-op and request a letter that will confirm that your intended work term employment is a requirement of your academic program. This letter will need to be submitted to Citizenship and Immigration Canada with the “Application to Change Conditions, Extend My Stay or Remain in Canada”, along with any other required documents, when you apply for the work permit. Information on this process and application forms can be found at: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/study/index.asp

UW CIP - International Connections Report - Current - 0 views

  • The environment on campus is already international in many respects, due to a multicultural and diverse student body with many ethnic and international students' clubs. Exchange programs are a tremendous learning experience for students and interest in them is growing every year, as evidenced by the number of active student exchange agreements and students participating. Faculty coordinators work on a volunteer basis, and the success of the exchange programs is due in large part to their enthusiasm and dedication. Some exchange agreements provide possibilities for work terms abroad, and these are very attractive to students as a way of broadening their international experience and providing potential employment opportunities upon graduation. In spite of resource limitations, the Department of Co-operative Education and Career Services has been quite successful in finding international placements for students. Waterloo has a strong National Alumni Council and alumni in approximately 100 countries around the world, many in positions of influence.

    In general, research has found student evaluations of teaching to be a valid and reliable means to evaluate instruction. However, it is necessarily true that student evaluations reflect the students' perceptions and points-of-view. Therefore, it is important to view course evaluations as just one measure of teaching effectiveness-a set of data that can be used alongside peer evaluation of teaching, instructor self-evaluation, and other measures.

Soil Infiltration and Saturation - 0 views

    One of my favourite learning objects of all time. I watched it being created by the late Jonathan Swallow with support from then-workstudy student Brad Carson when I was running the Interactive Learning Centre at Trent U. I loved how Jonathan was able to take something in the prof's head and reconceptualize it / build it for students.

Carnegie Foundation Creates New 'Owner's Manual' for Doctoral Programs - Faculty - The Chronicle of Higher Education - 0 views

  • Take, for example, the concept of apprenticeship, to which the Carnegie researchers devote an entire chapter. The faculty-master and student-apprentice relationship as the signature pedagogical structure of doctoral education dates back to the university's medieval roots. But, the Carnegie authors say, it's time that model was updated.
  • The study recommends that doctoral programs adopt new structures that allow students to have several intellectual mentors and come to think of mentorship as less an accident of interpersonal chemistry and as more a set of techniques that can be learned, assessed, and rewarded.
  • Arizona State University that awards an annual $5,000 cash prize to an "outstanding doctoral mentor" or another at the mathematics department of the University of Southern California that places new graduate students in "mentoring triplets" with both a faculty mentor and a more experienced graduate student.

An internationally known chemist, the Rutgers professor remembers the camp from her days as a teenager from Hungary, alone and unsure of what lay ahead. Now her lab is filled with smart young graduate students from China, Russia, Turkey, and the United States. Over the years, she has had 27 graduate students and 25 postdoctoral students in her lab. Because of her own personal and professional experiences, she understands what they are going through, and she goes out of her way to guide them. That means pushing them in their research, encouraging them to make outside contacts, even coaching some in English, all to develop in them the skills to become independent thinkers and successful scientists. In the spring, Ms. Greenblatt, 62, received the Francis P. Garvan-John M. Olin Medal, given annually in recognition of significant achievements by a female chemist in America. The American Chemical Society honored her as "a leading solid-state chemist and scholar, teacher, science advocate, and outstanding role model." The award is particularly satisfying to her because it celebrates her serving as a mentor to young scientists. In addition, the university has made her a Board of Governors professor, the highest rank a Rutgers faculty member can hold. In any field, a great mentor can make a big difference. But, in the sciences, such a figure can mean the difference between a lackluster dissertation and a mediocre job offer, on the one hand, and a publication that is a catalys
  • In any field, a great mentor can make a big difference. But, in the sciences, such a figure can mean the difference between a lackluster dissertation and a mediocre job offer, on the one hand, and a publication that is a catalyst for a promising career in academe or industry, on the other. An effective mentor acts as an advocate, a role model, and a guide to academic and professional development.

     The electronic portfolio offers many advantages to  its paper-based counterpart,  including - but not limited to - hyperlinked navigation, adding multimedia and the ease of sharing the portfolio. Previous research showed that the quality of a portfolio does not depend on the medium used. This paper studies the effect of the portfolio medium on perceived support for self-reflection and on the students' learning outcomes. We made use of the fact that during this study about half of the first year medical students used an electronic portfolio (n=157) and the other half a paper-based portfolio (n=190)
