Millennial soldiers in life or death situations have challenges communicating when face-to-face and often misread body language and facial expressions. A Delphi study was conducted to find consensus among 16 war arena leaders on how millennials can effectively communicate. The findings will be used to develop the first military training course in history on teaching non-verbal communication skills to soldiers before deployment to war zones.
Research Paper Breakout
New talks are added to this page daily, as they are linked in the plenary page. Keep checking back!
In the research paper break out session, attendees learn about the results of a qualitative and/or quantitative research study related to the research agendas of the Research Centers, Research Fellowship funded projects, grant-funded projects supported by the Office of Scholarship Support, or campus-based research. Each research paper breakout sessions provide attendees an opportunity to learn about 2-4 research studies in a similar area, being conducted at UOPX and/or by your UOPX peers. Join us to hear their methods, learn about new findings, and discuss what this means for the fields, next steps, and practice.
In an effort to call attention to the seemingly counterintuitive servant leadership style, the presenter will discuss recent research on the evolution of inclusion in higher education and give examples of how powerful questions can build trust and empower staff at all levels to claim responsibility for diversity outcomes. Outcomes of this presentation will include a discussion of the various recommendations for supporting servant leadership and the opportunity for the audience to reflect on their own bias toward powerful questioning.
Organizations are constantly being transformed through the presence of diversity within organizational cultures. As leaders continue to seek innovative ways to support diversity within their walls and create inclusive organizational cultures, researchers in this field find themselves presented with ever-growing opportunities to conduct meaningful research to support current knowledge and practices within this field.
Promoting cultural acceptance and tolerance of differences as it relates to students in their classroom is significant to the moral and ethical foundation of education. Educators have a duty to uphold and assist students to learn acceptance and create a positive classroom climate. This in-depth social-cultural learning experience is an active participation centered around an innovative educational practice or teaching and learning social acceptance in the classroom (Wentzel,1994).
Despite vast research on the positive effects of music on one’s personal development, less is known about the lifetime value of early music education. The purpose of this narrative inquiry was to explore and describe the stories of seven career professionals who were exposed to music at an early age focusing on how the skills gained through early music training informed their professional careers.
Women represent a fast-growing segment of the criminal justice system, but counselors lack gender-responsive interventions and strategies to deal with substance abuse that often accompanies criminal behaviors. Storytelling has been used to reframe addictive and destructive behavior; however, less is known about using film and how the medium is presented to support women in prison. This qualitative narrative inquiry provides exploratory, narrative insights as to how using film, storytelling, and role play can be used as a behavioral strategy to support incarcerated women.
The intention of this study was to investigate the impact of gender specific (female) micromanagement on male workers. The vast majority of the participants feel that they are being controlled; nothing they do is ever good enough; they no longer have the option to take initiative; there is no autonomy; they have little or no input for how to achieve organizational goals (Bobinski, 2009), and most importantly; they feel as though they are being emasculated.
A shortage of effective hands-on activities and physical labs in STEM courses in a fully online format creates a constraint to fully engage students which can impact student retention and success. To address these concerns, some higher education institutions have implemented science lab kits in their online courses. These materials provide hands-on learning opportunities that may enhance meaningful learning and retention of information by the students.
Learners can enter new virtual reality (VR) worlds from any place and time; but little is known about pedagogies in VR educational applications, which can be a powerful immersive and highly visual tool for learning. An emerging visual culture replaces reliance on text; and,VR, often creates an immersive, student centered and experientially oriented educational context, which features an emphasis on visual experience.
Use of classroom and online learning and administrative technologies in schools and higher education institutions has grown at an exponential pace. With growth comes expectations by students of using new and emerging technologies to support their learning. Such expectations are due in part to the generational shift from digital immigrant to more students being digital natives, and is particularly true for Gen z/iGen/Centennials (born in 1996 or later).
