Short Description:
This site is for educators (and anyone else) who may be interested in the ways that death and evil shape how we interact with others and shape our world.By engaging with the ideas of Hannah Arendt and Ernest Becker, as well as borrowing from terror management theory (TMT) in social psychology, we hope to provoke thinking about how our conscious and unconscious approaches to evil and death impact education (and our lives).

Sociology of Education in Canada
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Long Description:
Sociology of Education in Canada utilizes a contemporary theoretical focus to analyze how education in Canada is affected by pre-existing and persistent inequalities among members of society. It presents the historical and cultural factors that have shaped our current education system, examines the larger social trends that have contributed to present problems, discusses the various interest groups involved, and analyzes the larger social discourses that influence any discussion of these issues.

To achieve this, Karen L. Robson uses many current, topical, and relatable issues in Canadian education to ensure that students fully comprehend the information being presented and leave with an appreciation of how the sociology of education is inextricably linked to issues of stratification.

We will look at its roots and its development. This perspective may later help us to perceive more clearly the dimensions of the services provided by a university as well as future challenges and developments. History exerts a powerful influence on education, in the sense that educational development is a function of societies’ historical development, that education bears many traces of the past and, finally, that it is time for education to help make history by preparing for it.

Interdisciplinary Insights

Short Description:
The authors of ‘Trauma Informed Behavior Support’, Dr Kay Ayre and Dr Govind Krishnamoorthy, speak with interdisciplinary experts from education and mental health about trauma informed education and practical strategies to support students.

Long Description:
As an educator, have you ever wondered about students, “Why can’t she just control her behaviour?” or “Why did he do that?” The demands of the classroom, and the scrutiny of teachers, often leave little time for teachers to consider the complex needs of children experiencing traumatic stress. Drawing on their lived experience and professional expertise, the conversations with trauma-informed education experts in this unique book offer educators an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the needs of students and strategies for responding with compassion and empathy. In a time of rapidly emerging scientific discovery, and social and political challenges, this book encourages educational leaders to question the fundamental assumptions of dominant pedagogical practices and sets the foundations for innovation in education.

The Open Educational Resource Reader and Workbook for Interpreters

Short Description:
This Open Educational Resource (OER) on interpreting offers authors and readers free and open access to current, relevant, easy-to-access, and free materials. The editors have created a space where emerging scholars in the field of signed language interpreting make contributions with the ability to revise as the interpreting studies discipline and the scholars, themselves, develop and change. This OER provides faculty and students readings and practical application experiences that connect program specific coursework and concepts across the interpreter education curriculum emphasizing the holistic nature of the field of interpreting.

Long Description:
The purpose of this OER project is to develop current materials targeting newer scholars as authors who have conducted current research, but have not had an opportunity to publish. In this project, each of the five editors will develop and/or compile a collection of reading and ancillary materials on a specific content area. Contributions will be made in written English or digitally recorded American Sign Language (ASL). All contributors retain rights to their own work and may reuse in traditional and transformative ways as OER approaches continue to advance. As authors continue to grow, they are encouraged to remix (create new content over time) and redistribute materials they have developed.

The goal of this OER is to offer faculty and students readings and practical application experiences that connect program specific coursework and concepts across the interpreter education curriculum emphasizing the holistic nature of the field of interpreting.

Additionally, there are different needs for those students who are native English speakers and those who are native/primary users of ASL. We also envision other interpreter educators using the materials. Thus, we expect that the readings and activities will be revised (adapted) as needed.

Courses and topics for this project include interpreter mindset, pre-interpreting skills and knowledge, technical skills, reflective practice, linguistics, cultural intelligence, multicultural competencies, meaning transfer, and coaching.

In this PressBook, we explore the historical roots of holographic technology, how holograms work, the use of holographic technology in education, and the future of holographic technology in the field of education, instructional design and beyond. In the words of Dennis Gabor, the father of holography, “the future cannot be predicted, but futures can be invested” (p. 185). How true that statement would actually prove to be in the use of holographic technology for educational purposes throughout the world!
