School of Education Professors and Student Present at Nyack Scholars Symposium
The Nyack College Center for Scholarship and Global Engagement (CSGE) presented its 2013 Scholars Symposium on February 20, 2013 at the Nyack College Manhattan campus, and on February 21, 2013 at the Nyack College Rockland campus. Faculty presented papers they have published or presented at conferences.
Dr. Christine Buel, professor in the School of Education, presented "Reforming the Altruist: Novice Teachers in Faith-Based Universities." Dr. Buel's presentation summarized and discussed the findings of a mixed methods study designed to determine the altruistic expectations of future teachers enrolled in faith-based universities. Study data was collected via the Personal Expectations of Teaching (PET) self-report questionnaire designed by Friedman (2006). Data findings interested both college students and educators who plan to work with individuals from poverty and other high-need contexts. Findings indicated that new teachers imagine themselves working with students in nurturing and social ways rather than in task-specific and instructional ways. New teachers also shy away from leadership and instead see themselves working with the "needy student" in one to one scenarios. There are so many ethical implications for how new teachers are motivated to join the teaching profession.
Dr. Frank Tuzi, professor and the director of the TESOL in the School of Education presented, "Making web-Based Education Equitable for All Users." Exploring the ease of use, perceptions, and preferences of students and teachers,
Paul Van Houten, a senior in Nyack’s School of Education with a major in Adolescent Education presented on, "Inadequacy: Public School Funding and Control." His paper addressed the changing scope of public school finance and control. The paper identified strategies in public school finance that are used to increase student achievement in the classroom. The state-of-the-art approach is specifically identified and explained as an effective approach to changing public school finance for student achievement. The paper also addressed the sources of public financing and the role of intermediate structures, state, and federal government in education finance.
