Indian educators’ perceptions of their inclusion implementation practices in secondary schools

Inclusive education has been touted as a strategy for providing educational opportunity in India, but little is known about whether and how Indian educators provide such opportunities. This study focused on Indian educators’ perceptions of inclusive practices in their own schools. A total of 160 teachers and 15 headteachers from randomly selected secondary schools in the Indian state of West Bengal participated in the study. Surveys were distributed to collect and analyse responses. Interviews were also used to learn more about the views of the school leaders on specific issues concerning…

Queer Temporalities, Spacetimematterings, and a Pedagogy of Vulnerability in Qualitative Inquiry

This interview project began with a daughter’s innocent desire to ask “Why?” but we find ourselves in an ever-looping liminality that recognizes both the impossibility of such innocence and the power of an “ability to live on the boundaries” of wanting-to-know and never-knowing. This article concludes by considering the implications of maintaining such a space within the context of a qualitative inquiry course and within the scholarly and personal engagements between a qualitative inquiry instructor and student. We examine the ways that this liminal space has shaped our co-writing, our…

Selling Pain to the Saturated Self

How can we comprehend people who pay for an experience marketed as painful? On one hand, consumers spend billions of dollars every year to alleviate different kinds of pain. On the other hand, millions of individuals participate in extremely painful leisure pursuits. In trying to understand this conundrum, we ethnographi-cally study a popular adventure challenge where participants subject themselves to electric shocks, fire, and freezing water. Through sensory intensification, pain brings the body into sharp focus, allowing individuals to rediscover their corporeal-ity. In addition, painful…

Critiquing the role of the learner and context in aesthetic learning experiences

I critique the role of learners and context to more fully explore the latent conceptions and performance of aesthetic learning experiences in instructional design and technology. This critique is intended to allow for a fuller interrogation of how individual learners apprehend designed learning experiences, heightening the role of the instructional designer in envisioning such experiences. Using a 1-year ethnography of a graduate human–computer interaction program to document the felt student experience, I highlight the importance of understanding how learners construct their own…

Improving online social presence through asynchronous video

Online learning has become a reality for many students in higher education. Unfortunately, something that has also become a reality is a sense of isolation in online courses, and Moore (1980) has warned that students’ sense of distance can threaten their ability to learn. The community of inquiry framework (Garrison, Anderson, & Archer, 2000) has provided insight into ways that online interactions can improve students’ and instructors’ social presence and learning. Emerging video technologies may be able to improve these interactions and thus more easily support the development of…

Goal Setting and MOOC Completion: A Study on the Role of Self-Regulated Learning in Student Performance in Massive Open Online Courses

Despite providing advanced coursework online to learners around the world, massive open online courses (MOOCs) have had notoriously low completion rates. Self-regulated learning (SRL) frames strategies that students can use to enhance motivation and promote their engagement, persistence, and performance self-monitoring. Understanding which SRL subprocesses are most relevant to the MOOC learning context can guide course designers and instructors on how to incorporate key SRL aspects into the design and delivery of MOOCs. Through surveying 643 MOOC students using the Online Self-Regulated…

Fuller, E. J., Hollingworth, L., & Liu, J. (2015). Evaluating State Principal Evaluation Plans Across the United States. Journal of Research on Leadership Education, 1-29.

Recent federal legislation has created strong incentives for states to adopt principal evaluation systems, many of which include new measures of principal effectiveness such as estimates of student growth and changes in school climate. Yet, there has been little research on principal evaluation systems and no state-by-state analysis of the principal evaluation systems adopted at the behest of the legislation. This study uses survey data and document review to assess the components of principal evaluation systems in the 50 states and Washington, D.C. Finally, based on recent research, this…
