Ethical Case Study What Ethical

Words: 319 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 72433463

Only parents with nothing to hide would allow their children to participate, while children with violent family histories might be withdrawn from the study, or pressured by their parents to lie.

Additionally, students might not want their records accessed, if there was potentially damaging evidence in their records, out of embarrassment or fear. Thus, to ensure that the study was valid, and to obtain a more representative cross-section of individuals, Ludwig violated basic ethical research principles of parental consent for participation for minors and did not obtain standard confidentiality waivers.

Describe your reactions to the way this study was done.

Regardless of Ludwig's rationale, no individual's personal rights can be sacrificed to the personal needs and desires of the researcher, however much Ludwig and those like him might cloak their unethical behavior in the language of 'science.'… [Read More]

Post Tenure The Perceptions of

Words: 5554 Length: 20 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 79017427

" (Zemsky, 1)

Null Hypothesis

The null hypothesis of the research endeavor is that online professors will report no perceptible connection between post-tenure review and job performance.

Alternate Hypothesis


The alternate hypothesis of the research endeavor is that online professors will report that post-tenure review improves job performance.


Nature of the Study

Significance of the Study

The significance of the proposed research is based in the need for greater study of online instruction in higher education with relation to post tenure review. As with all other elements of this research process, we can initiate a discussion on the significance of the research with a reiteration of the fact that amongst educators without classification, the perspective on post-tenure review is generally hostile. This is because tenure is considered by most educators to be an important feature of the profession demanding of protection. To this end, Ceci et al. (2006) indicate that…… [Read More]

Close Reading of Look at Your Fish

Words: 1258 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 12165702

Close eading of "Look at Your Fish"

Samuel H. Scudder composed "Look at Your Fish" in 1874. The piece is a narrative and anecdote of Scudder's first encounter with Jean Louis odolphe Agassiz. Agassiz, at the time of their meeting, was an accomplished zoologist working at the Harvard University Lawrence Scientific School.

"Look at Your Fish" is Scudder's recollection of his first day in Professor Agassiz's course and the first class exercise in which Professor Agassiz assigned to the class. "Look at Your Fish" is told in a chronological, linear fashion. There are a few groups for whom this piece is the intended audience.

Words: 845 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 32353970

Robert McCollough: Experiences from the past, pedagog for the future.

An onlooker into the courses taught by this professor would be surprised and little confused as to Robert McCollough's style. Robert strives to know each of his students individually, to the point that he can refer to them with nicknames and hash out class discussions in an almost informal manner. Students admire his candor and passion for knowledge, and are drawn to his courses. Somehow it is this magnetism that results in the ultimate success of his students, and with a class average of 4.0 it is no mystery that Robert McCollough is a student and university favorite.

A Lifetime Legacy

Robert McCollough was a first generation American, born into a Scottish family. His father was an air force pilot and part of an elite team known as the Flying Tigers. His father's work resulted in Robert moving to Japan…… [Read More]

Hokusai's Analysis

A new idea wonders,

Determined friendship stares,

nearer to us.

Katsushika Hokusai's Chinese Boys Learning to Write and Paint (1785) is housed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is from the Edo period and done as a woodblock print, ink and color on paper (Metropolitan, 2013). Researching the Edo period, one finds that the time was characterized by more strict social order, isolationism, economic growth, and a push towards art and culture. For most scholars, this was a period of relative stability for Japan, broken in the 19th century (around 1867) with the end of isolationism, the rise of the peasant class, and issues with the Dutch, other Europeans and the United tates (Jansen, 2002). Hokusai was a printmaker, painter and artist known primarily in modern times for The Great Wave off Kanagawa (Figure 1), but also changed the form and subject of his works into a…… [Read More]

Business Ethics a Contradiction in

Words: 1820 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Case Study Paper #: 8678248



Ironically, the single most important thing a university could do might be to suspend all forms of grading by the traditional test methods. Even without cheating, the focus on grades only encourages studying to perform on test instead of learning for the sake of learning. It might not be practical for large classes, but one-on-one oral exams between students and professors or TAs might be more difficult to cheat on and provide more accurate indications of what students have actually learned than traditional testing methods. If the university cannot suspend traditional grading and testing, the single most important thing might be to provide a mandatory ethics course to freshman in conjunction with employing a very strict one-strike policy for cheating.

Huckleberry Finn and How to

Words: 339 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 77039128



The real reason to go: Self-knowledge about Huckleberry and Jim's roles in their society. Huckleberry has always existed on the margins of society, because of his class. Even at the beginning of the novel he intuitively senses the falseness of piety and middle-class morality, embodied by the religious drawings of the bloodthirsty Grangerford's dead daughter. Unlike the civilized Miss Watson, Huck instinctively treats Jim like an equal, and his only qualms about allowing Jim to seek freedom come from socially learned ideas about race. Huck's boyhood idol Tom Sawyer behaves cruelly to Jim and Tom uses Jim at the end of the novel to play a childhood prank. Huckleberry learns that freedom is only possible on a raft, away from civilization. This is why, at the end of the novel, he vows to head for uncharted territories, and to never write again. Jim learns the true meaning of friendship as…… [Read More]

Nonverbal and Cultural Barriers to Communication

It is only when the intended receiver of a message understands the information contained within the message that communication can be regarded effective. The world is today regarded a global village. This effectively means that intercultural communication will continue being even more common going forward. In so many ways, effective communication will enable me to successfully execute the mandate of my new position. Given the multicultural nature of our institution, there exists a significant need for me to explore ways of overcoming cultural barriers to communication. In seeking to overcome the said barriers, I will amongst other things ensure that I understand the receiver's perspective. This will help minimize instances of wrong interpretation.

Words: 488 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 8339561

The slave economics of the plantation system do as well: the economics of the South explain why being a personal slave of a woman like Miss Watson in a more genteel area of the country is not as 'bad' as being a plantation slave in the deep South. The prospect of being sold further down South is what makes Jim so fearful. The politics of a corrupt political system that empowers the policing of fugitive slaves, and a history that normalizes human bondage and makes Huck feel guilty for fleeing with Jim as 'theft' are all manifest in the novel.

These plot points also shows how social aspects of geography can develop character: were it not for the Mississippi, Huck's views about race would not be changed and challenged. Through fleeing with Jim, Huck learns that he is not stealing Jim, but that Jim has a right to be free.…… [Read More]

Philosophy of Teaching Effective Professionals

Words: 1195 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 11965246

When professors work with students with special needs they should always be certain to create an inclusive environment that encourages all students to shine. Moreover, community college professors need to develop curricula that honor diversity whenever possible. A comprehensive teaching philosophy for the community college professor therefore expands student awareness of diversity as well as of their subject matter. The community college instructor must also keep in mind that many students will have families, part-time, or full-time jobs and must therefore respect the needs for students to juggle differing demands. Professors should always listen to their students needs: if work loads appear too hard for many students then the professor should consider reducing them. Expanding awareness also includes helping students network. The community college professor should introduce students to various campus organizations, clubs, other classes, and community resources. The instructor should direct students to campus bulletin boards and career development…… [Read More]

Letter to Dean of Students

Because the course is literature, we expect a challenging course that demands English language expertise. Yet as a professor, Doe is required to be encouraging. She is supposed to help her students excel, and not supposed to make her students feel belittled. Professor Doe expects that all her students perform at exactly the same level at exactly the same time, rather than acknowledge the diversity of learning style, experience, or pace.

I believe that Professor Doe is ill prepared either to adapt her instruction to address the individual needs of her students, or unable to identify appropriate, fair, and reasonable accommodations for them. Professor Doe does not seem to appreciate or acknowledge the value that foreign students have in her class. Rather than offer foreign students opportunities for academic advancement or personal progress, Professor Doe simply dismisses us with disdain. It has been left solely up to Professor Doe's students…… [Read More]

Social Enterprise What Is Meant by the

Social Enterprise

What is meant by the term 'social enterprise' and what do social enterprises contribute to society and the economies in which they operate?

The acceleration with which the world is changing day by day is continuous. A majority of organizations that have a motto of 'not-for-profit' are looking out for prospects with the help of which they can begin or widen their projects in order to get their missions fulfilled and offer the needy the earned profits. Thus, any organization or scheme that brings about the mentioned twofold objectives is considered a social enterprise. Social enterprises sell mission-related goods or services and by doing so they try to create a more impartial and fair environment through specific market-based strategies (Bornstein & Davis 2010).

In other words, a business is regarded as a social enterprise when the main objective is to cope up with the prevailing societal problems and…… [Read More]

There are always real human problems that might prevent someone from making a deadline, including car trouble, sick children, and a plethora of other issues that might arise and that are completely uncontrollable. Though Kim could have made better choices in getting her paper in on time, Professor Freud should not have a policy that completely disregards an entire course's worth of performance for one deadline.

Philip, Arnold's friend, has the least amount of responsibility in this scenario. Cindy, Kim's friend, is also partially responsible for failing to take Kim home when she repeatedly asked. In addition, her husband bears a fair share of the responsibility for refusing to hand over the car keys. Phillip, however, was only involved in increasing Arnold's insecurities about his wife.

Intellectual Diversity on the Surface the Academic

Intellectual Diversity

On the surface, the Academic Bill of Rights (ABOR) sounds innocuous and even full of cliches and platitudes about pluralism and academic freedom for all. Given that its author is David Horowitz, however, a 1960s Leftist ideologue who transformed himself into a Rightist ideologue over the last thirty years, a deeper examination reveals a hidden political agenda. His Bill of Rights or any other project in which he is involved should therefore never even be considered by any university or legislature. Contrary to what he claims in the ABOR, he is not in the least interested in promoting balance, fairness or pluralism in the university or anywhere else in American society, and all his efforts are simply stalking horses for the far Right. A man like this should never be allowed to get his foot in the door, no matter how polished his verbiage might be. Horowitz was…… [Read More]

However, if a professor is enthusiastic about the information, a student will be more likely to receive the information willingly. In those situations, where a professor is cautious on teaching a specific subject matter, the students may also approach the information with apprehension. With so many dynamics of behavior from students, the response may not always replicate the professor's instructions on the subject. As students may be apathetic to information even with: the most committed and passionate professors. This is because of their desire to be: confrontational, they are tired from the previous night's social activities, or are disinterested (because they are in a class and they do not want to attend).

Another area where a one-on-one interaction is more likely to occur is: between an employer and employee. Causes of behavior for an employee are determined by: the need to maximize employee's production, keep costs down, and increase profits.…… [Read More]

3. How did the American professoriate change and in what ways did the American Association of University Professors contribute to that change?

During this time there was a new idea surrounding academic professionalism that was essential to the creation of a university professoriate. The gradations of rank and promotion which included instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, and full professor, became the standard. The ranks were tied to the institution that is conferring tenure and the privileges of academic freedom to professors who had gained promotion. Academic freedom was institutionalized beyond the individual campus with the creation of the American Association of University Professors. This group intended to provide assurance and redress for faculty members who claimed that their academic rights had be violated by irate presidents or irritable board members (Thelin, 2004, 128).

The formation of the American Association of University Professors paved the way for tremendous change. The American…… [Read More]

By not being allowed alternative coursework, the professor is already infringing on the student's religious values and beliefs. Further, the professor also is not exercising the pursuit of academic freedom because he has put an institutional restriction on the student. Instead of using the student's belief to enhance the teaching by showing his students that the exercise of one's freedom is paramount in a true democracy, the professor has shown an authoritative to the point of being dictatorial in nature. The form and substance of what academic freedom and freedom of religion truly mean are lost because the professor forced the hand of the student where the latter ended up choosing to drop from the course rather than do a coursework against his beliefs. Between the professor and the student, it is the student who has demonstrated the true meaning and value of what academic freedom should stand for.

Analysis

Certainly, differences have arisen between instruction in the traditional classroom and instruction in the online virtual classroom. but, does that really mean that the role of the facilitator in distance learning is really going to be degraded to a low-skill job? Most likely not. Those who believe this to be the case wrongly undervalue skills when it comes to the needs of distance education, most of which are the very same as face-to-face education. To be effective, both traditional and online instructors should motivate students, facilitate communication, and foster collaboration. In fact, the onus for communication and collaboration is even higher to overcome the isolating nature of distance learning.
