TOPIC: Principal Actions that Build Teacher Trust: Comparative Case Studies
PRESENTER: Micela Leis
LOCATION:
   350 Old Ivy Way, Suite. 100 (FREE PARKING) (map)
TIME:  Friday January 24, 2014, 2:00-3:00 pm EST
ABSTRACT:  In this study, a comparable-case selection method was used to select three schools had similar relevant characteristics: school and teacher demographics, school size, school type, and low teacher-reported levels of teacher-principal trust in August 2012. The researchers then used an analytic induction approach within a comparative case study design to explore the dynamic nature of teacher-principal trust, and principal actions that are related to these changes. In this Works In Progress, Micela Leis
will describe the researchers’ conceptual model and their findings on principal actions that influence relational trust.

welcome_backTHE LIBRARIES @UVA
Yes, it is true! Libraries are special places. For example, the Brown Science and Engineering Library has a working fireplace (think vortex), Clemons Library has a giant fish tank (think tranquility), Alderman Library  houses the Education book collection (think “good to know!”), and  the CLIC has  its handbook collection (think essential for your research). Keep in mind you can also reserve study rooms  or reserve group study or meeting rooms (think dissertation defenses) at the various libraries. You can click on the blue info icon button next to the room number to see a photo of a room! buttonblue

Cover of the book Improving Measurement of Productivity in Higher EducationFREE E-BOOK
Title:  Improving Measurement of Productivity in Higher Education
Editors: Teresa A. Sullivan, Christopher Mackie, William F. Massy, and Esha Sinha
Overview:  “In the current environment of increasing tuition and shrinking public funds, a sense of urgency has emerged to better track the performance of colleges and universities in the hope that their costs can be contained without compromising quality or accessibility. Improving Measurement of Productivity in Higher Education presents an analytically well-defined concept of productivity in higher education and recommends empirically valid and operationally practical guidelines for measuring it. In addition to its obvious policy and research value, improved measures of productivity may generate insights that potentially lead to enhanced departmental, institutional, or system educational processes.”  – Publisher

In addition to this book, the National Academies Press  provides free downloads of other titles.  You will note that one of the editors of this book is UVa’s President Sullivan.

 View of the Scholar's Lab in Alderman Library
DIGITAL HUMANITIES SPEAKER SERIES
Topic:  Theories and Practices of Postcolonial Digital Humanities
When:  Friday, January 31 at 10:00 am
Location:  Alderman Library, Room 421
Overview:  Both postcolonial studies and the digital humanities have gained currency within the academy but are subject to strident critiques from interlocutors. Postcolonial studies has been criticized for being overly reliant on jargon and apolitical, whereas the digital humanities have been taken to task for failing to interrogate questions of race, power, and identity fully. The Postcolonial Digital Humanities (#dhpoco) intervenes in these gaps through theory and praxis. #dhpoco engages postcolonial studies to address global issues relating to race, gender, class, sexuality, and disability within cultures of technology while bringing the activist praxis of the digital humanities to the work of postcolonial studies. Co-founders Adeline Koh and Roopika Risam will discuss the theoretical underpinnings of #dhpoco and outline the tactics that #dhpoco employs.
Speakers: Adeline Koh is the director of DH @ Stockton and an assistant professor of literature at Richard Stockton College and Roopika Risam is an Assistant Professor of English at Salem State University.
This event is co-sponsored by The Carter G. Woodson Institute and the Scholars’ Lab.
