Learning Style Preferences in College Students with Different Majors

Research article of American Journal of Educational Research and Reviews Learning Style Preferences in College Students with Different Majors I-Ju Chen1, Kai-Ru Cheng2 1Ling Tung University, Taiwan 2Language Center, Ling Tung University In this study, we investigated the learning style preferences of college students with different majors and the relationship between learning styles and the majors. In total, 120 English as a foreign language college students with different majors from Taiwan participated. Descriptive statistical analysis and the chi-square test results indicated that learners across majors generally preferred the visual learning style. However, business and information technology majors preferred the auditory learning style and design majors preferred the haptic learning style. Nevertheless, although learning background may play a vital role in the development of a student’s learning style, the differences between learning style preferences and educational background were non-significant. Learning style preferences may also relate to other variables and may change over time, across contexts, and between different tasks.

Adult Learning Theory: Reflections on the role of mentoring as a key to success in advanced degree programs

Research article of American Journal of Educational Research and Reviews Adult Learning Theory: Reflections on the role of mentoring as a key to success in advanced degree programs Kent L. Willis, PhD The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler. Vital to completing advanced educational and training programs beyond the undergraduate degree level is realizing specific dispositions and traits. In this paper, the role of mentoring as a critical contributing factor to student success is examined through critical reflection as a form of qualitative inquiry. Traditionally utilized in professional settings to improve practice, critical reflection provided an emergent methodological approach for close examination of personal experiences with mentoring during the learning process in pursuit and subsequent completion of a professional degree (Fook, 2013). This in-depth examination of personal experience derived lessons learned from individuals that successfully navigated the rigor of advanced educational programs to expose mentoring’s role as the key to success.

Reasons Early Career Black Special Education Teachers Quit Their Positions

Research article of American Journal of Educational Research and Reviews Reasons Early Career Black Special Education Teachers Quit Their Positions LaRon A. Scott Department of Counseling & Special Education, Virginia Commonwealth University Special education policymakers and practitioners are concerned about attrition among teachers, especially those who leave early in their careers and teachers of color. To increase knowledge about attrition, I examined demographic and interview data from 10 Black teachers who quit their positions before they completed their probationary periods (1-3 years). Guided by Cox’s (1994) cultural diversity in organization model designed to capture the complex nature of diversity in organizations, I used phenomenological research methods to better understand the teachers’ experiences surrounding the decision to quit. The qualitative analyses revealed four themes: (a) inadequate mentoring, (b) role abuse, (c) cultural insensitivity, and (d) inadequate resources. I conclude with suggestions for education policies and practices at the local and federal level that special educators can employ to address these issues. This paper highlights issues of attrition within a subgroup of educators (Black special educators) that are underrepresented in the research literature.

Departmentalization in Elementary Schools: Contradictions Teachers Confront

Research article of American Journal of Educational Research and Reviews Departmentalization in Elementary Schools: Contradictions Teachers Confront Richard L. Allington University of Tennessee. This paper presents analyses of observational and interview data gathered in a study of exemplary fourth-grade teachers from five states. The central issue explored is the relative merits of self-contained and departmentalized models of instruction. We found no achievement differences in the classrooms by organizational pattern, but differences in the instruction offered in these two models were identified, and mixed views of the relative advantages of either organization plan were expressed by the participants. A key tension was whether these organizational plans are intended to primarily benefit teachers or students. However, the complexities of the cost/benefit concerns are the findings that this study highlights. Keywords: Contradictions Teachers Confront; Departmentalization ...
