University of Essex :: Latest news :: Political, Economic, Social, and Legal Aspects of Hosting Migrants and Refugees :: Off-campus Campus 

By the top of 2014, over fifty nine million folks had been forcibly displaced, the very best variety since warfare II. This increase is particularly a results of the warfare in Syrian Arab Republic, that has caused the most important outflow in recent decades. Syrian refugees have largely fled to neighboring countries, with Turkey hosting the most important variety (currently concerning a pair of.7 million), however the crisis has additionally affected less proximate countries and therefore the world organization.

This workshop brings along early career researchers from the united kingdom and Turkey engaged on totally different aspects of migration and expatriate flows, such as:

the reasons for migration
the choice of destination
the political and economic rights of refugees/migrants
public opinion towards refugees
The consequences of hosting refugees for the political, economic, and social stability and development of the host countries. If you need help with essay just ask help from our paper proofreader and stay calm.
The workshop can mix early career and skilled researchers in addition as practitioners (non-profit NGOs and government officials), and encourage and hopefully foster British-Turkish tutorial collaboration.

The Demolition of American Education

The Demolition of American Education | Proofread | Scoop.it
Donald Trump and Betsy DeVos’s proposed budget for the US Department of Education is a boon for privatization and a disaster for public schools and low-income college students. They want to cut federal spending on education by 13.6 percent. Some programs would be eliminated completely; others would face deep reductions. They want to cut $10.6 billion from existing programs and divert $1.4 billion to charter schools and to vouchers for private and religious schools. This budget reflects Trump and DeVos’s deep hostility to public education and their desire to shrink the Department of Education, with the ultimate goal of getting rid of it entirely.

Scholarship@Western - The Western Conference on Science Education: Assessing Interdisciplinary Thinking Using a Novel Card Sort Activity

The natural complexity of the world around us, coupled with the need to solve societal problems, has driven the demand for interdisciplinary thinking. The increased desire for interdisciplinary outcomes and the increased expectation from students for an interdisciplinary education is fundamentally changing the way we approach teaching Science. Interdisciplinary programs, like Science One at the University of British Columbia, are unique programs that explore teaching in this changing landscape. While one of the goals of any interdisciplinary program is to break down the pre-existing silos of knowledge that students may possess, few tools exist to assess development of such interdisciplinary thinking.
At WCSE 2015, Kimberly Tanner introduced us to the idea of card sorting, in which participants sort cards (containing representative textbook problems) into groups based on their identified characteristics. This technique has previously been used to distinguish expert-like versus novice-like thinking within disciplines, including physics, biology, and chemistry.
We have developed an online card-sorting tool that allows us to differentiate between disciplinary and interdisciplinary thinking. Students are provided with 9 cards containing representative problems from Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and the manner in which participants sort these cards provides insight into their extent of interdisciplinary thinking.
In this session, we will discuss the theoretical basis for our work, outline major steps in the development process, and discuss results from offerings of the instrument to students in traditional and interdisciplinary science courses. Implications for teaching, both in the interdisciplinary and traditional classroom, will be discussed.

NASA Public-Education

NASA TV airs a variety of regularly scheduled, pre-recorded educational and public relations programming 24 hours a day on its various channels. Programs include "NASA Gallery", which features photographs and video from NASA's history; "Video File", which broadcasts b-roll footage for news and media outlets; "Education File", which provides special programming for schools; "NASA Edge" and "NASA 360", hosted programs that focus on different aspects of NASA; and "This Week @ NASA", which shows news from NASA centers around the country. Live ISS coverage and related commentary is aired daily at 11 a.m. EST and repeats throughout the day.[7]
The network also provides an array of live programming, such as 24-hour coverage of Space Shuttle missions, ISS events (spacewalks, media interviews, educational broadcasts), press conferences and rocket launches. These often include running commentary by members of the NASA Public Affairs Office who serve as the "voice of Mission Control," including Rob Navias, Josh Byerly, Nicole Cloutier and Brandi Dean.
In the United States, NASA Television's Public and Media channels are MPEG-2 digital C-band signals carried by QPSK/DVB-S modulation on satellite AMC-3, transponder 15C, at 87 degrees west longitude. Downlink frequency is 4000 MHz, horizontal polarization, with a data rate of 38.86 Mhz, symbol rate of 28.1115 Ms/s, and ¾ FEC. A Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) compliant Integrated Receiver Decoder (IRD) is needed for reception.

Scholarship@Western - The Western Conference on Science Education: Adapting lesson delivery to accommodate changing classroom sizes

Research indicates that class size may influence student achievement (Dillon, Kokkelenberg, & Christy, 2002). So how does one adapt the delivery of course content in larger classes so that student achievement is not negatively impacted? While some may advocate for smaller classes, university lecturers typically do not have control over the size of their classes. An alternative is to focus on increasing student motivation and creating a sense of community. In this presentation, I will present observations garnered from teaching an introductory programming class to three different class sizes (i.e., 50, 100, and 25 students). I will also discuss strategies that proved effective in creating a sense of community and motivating students. In this session, the audience will be shown how a shift from a primarily lecture-based format to an active learning style was implemented in the different classes. As a focus on learning instead of teaching has the potential to impact student achievement (Weimer, 2003) this research is of benefit to anyone confronted with changing class sizes. Innovative methods for measuring student motivation during the semester will also be discussed.
