1 The Nursing Crisis in Iowa: The Convergence of Trends and Policy (Refereed Article) - Janice Nahra Friedel
Auteur : Janice Nahra Friedel
Genre : Éducation
Introduction Did the nursing shortage crisis creep up on us? Were we blind-sided? For the almost three decades that I have worked in community college and technical program administration, the issues persisted: limited clinical sites, the inability to find and hire appropriately credentialed nursing faculty, and long waiting lists of eligible entrants unable to gain nursing program admission due to limited program capacity. Have we made any progress in resolving these issues?

2 Bushwalking and Access: The Kosciusko Primitive Area Debate 1943-6 (REFEREED Papers) (Report) - Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Auteur : Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Genre : Éducation
In south-eastern Australia the journeying practice known as 'the bushwalk' depends on the experience of 'unspoiled' or 'wilderness' settings. An extended remote experience is a core feature of most outdoor education programs, and is usually a highlight of courses of study (Martin, 2008). An example is the three week 'long walk' through the alpine and foothill landscape of Kosciuszko National Park in the Bachelor of Arts (Outdoor Education) course at La Trobe University, Bendigo. The subject outline for this trip specifies the walk's purposes and character by stating that students will gain "knowledge and skills required to undertake an extended journey in a remote natural environment and consolidate their outdoor education journey skills, environmental knowledge, and introductory outdoor leadership skills" (La Trobe University Handbook, 2009). Such a program demands self-reliance and

3 Meeting Organizational Global Challenges Through Training (Refereed Article) - ATEA Journal
Auteur : ATEA Journal
Genre : Éducation
Introduction The necessity to enhance human productivity in order to maintain organizational competitiveness and success in the global economy continues to be an issue of high concern within organizations. However, enhanced productivity is not possible without effective and efficient employees (Gordon, 2009). The emergence of developing economies throughout the world supports the need for continuous development of employees. For the United States, the major challenge is that industry will not be able to meet the challenges from developing economies by competing on price alone. Instead, remaining competitive means increasing productivity and exploring niches for services and goods not available elsewhere (Grey & Herr, 1998). With the intensity of competition, one of the key methods for enhancing productivity is through effective training using technology when appropriate and helpful

4 A Tale of Three Journals: A Study of Papers Published in AJOE, JAEOL and JEE Between 1998 and 2007 (REFEREED Papers) (Report) - Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Auteur : Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Genre : Éducation
Introduction This paper provides an analysis of the refereed publications in three scholarly journals in the related fields of outdoor education, adventure education, and experiential education. The three journals are the Australian Journal of Outdoor Education (AJOE), the Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning (JAEOL), and the Journal of Experiential Education (JEE). We analyse the refereed publications published in each journal between 1998 and 2007, 343 papers in total, before concluding with a section reflecting on the similarities, differences and future challenges for the three journals. This choice to analyse papers published between 1998 to 2007 was pragmatic because AJOE and JAEOL have only published refereed papers since 1998 and 2000 respectively whereas the JEE has published refereed papers since 1978.

5 From the Outside Looking in: A Study of Australian Employers' Perceptions of Graduates from Outdoor Education Degree Programs (Refereed Papers) (Report) - Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Auteur : Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Genre : Éducation
Introduction Currently in Australia there are a number of pathways that exist to provide entry into the outdoor profession, but it is not always clear which pathway will produce the best employees. Where do graduates from outdoor education degrees fit within the spectrum of employment positions and qualifications that exist within the Australian outdoor profession? The outdoor profession spans a range of overlapping fields including outdoor education, outdoor recreation, adventure therapy, and organisational/management corporate development (Mann, 2005a). There are claims by a number of Australian universities that their graduates are suited to work across the outdoor profession but can this claim be substantiated? There is no conclusive evidence that graduates of undergraduate courses within Australia meet, or fail to meet, employers' needs. If a degree does not give the graduate a sign

6 Communicating Risk with Parents: Exploring the Methods and Beliefs of Outdoor Education Co-Ordinators in Victoria, Australia (Refereed Papers) (Report) - Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Auteur : Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Genre : Éducation
Introduction The aim of this paper is to explore the risk communication strategies currently being employed in a number of Victorian Government schools to enable parents to make an 'informed' decision regarding their child's participation in a school outdoor education program. This paper also investigates the beliefs and assumptions regarding risk communication held by the outdoor education co-ordinators in those schools. Within the specific context of current theoretical thinking in risk communication, the potential implications of these chosen strategies will be discussed.

8 Well-Being and Outdoor Pedagogies in Primary Schooling: The Nexus of Well-Being and Safety (Refereed Papers) (Report) - Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Auteur : Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Genre : Éducation
Introduction This paper draws upon preliminary findings of the Well-being and Outdoor Pedagogies project (1) which examines various notions of well-being and is concerned to develop the concept of outdoor pedagogies. The ethnographic fieldwork for this project was conducted in the spring of 2008 at a small charity-run residential outdoor centre in the English countryside. The fieldwork involved the centre staff, the visiting teachers from Oliver Primary School and their pupils, aged 8 and 9. Using participant observation during the residential stay at the centre, events were recorded as they were taking place, in order to acquire a deep understanding of the people in that social situation (Maykut & Morehouse, 1994). Each primary school teacher was observed while facilitating a session, taking into account the impact that his/her approach had on the children involved in the outdoor ac

9 Development of Critical Thinking and Creativity: Practical Guidelines for the Postsecondary Classroom (Refereed Article) - ATEA Journal
Auteur : ATEA Journal
Genre : Éducation
Introduction Critical thinking and creativity are foundational for finding structured technical solutions to real-world problems for creating new and innovative solutions to technical issues. These skills can and should be developed within the educational environment. This article discusses the benefits of these skills within technical education and demonstrates how personality theory relates to critical thinking and creativity. This article suggests an alignment between preferences and strengths within critical and creative thinking abilities, and also includes information to assist instructors in identifying their students' intrinsic preferences. Lastly, specific guidelines for developing students' critical and creative thinking skills based on their personality types are discussed.

10 Reconceptualising Outdoor Adventure Education: Activity in Search of an Appropriate Theory (Refereed PAPERS) - Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Auteur : Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Genre : Éducation
Introduction The emphasis on interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships is frequently deemed to be the primary focus of outdoor adventure education (OAE) programmes (Hill, 2007; Priest & Gass, 1997; Zink & Boyes, 2006). For example, Ewert and Garvey (2007) have suggested that "one of the most visible and advertised outcomes of adventure education programs is personal growth" (p. 29). As will be discussed in greater detail the emphasis on personal development has lead to the use of teaching and learning strategies in OAE that are largely based on an understanding that learning occurs via the cognitive processing of experiences. The individual is positioned as an autonomous agent who is capable of internalising experiences and applying the new knowledge acquired in one setting to other contexts (Holman, Pavlica, & Thorpe, 1997; Kemmis, 1985). This view of learning, as indivi

12 Eco-Mentoring: Using Nature As a Guide to Destiny (Non-Refereed Papers) (Report) - Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Auteur : Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Genre : Éducation
The decline of traditional mentoring and its replacement by institutional teaching, with the consequent separation of the young from intimate contact with nature, has been a mixed blessing. In particular, the use of nature as a guide for the young to find their life path has been abandoned, with perhaps predictable negative consequences. This article shows how educators can elicit the power of nature to guide the young toward their destiny, and so counteract the psychosocial pathologies associated with bureaucratic instruction. Modern education has spawned large numbers of alienated youth exhibiting psychosocial pathologies. School absences, high dropout rates, vandalism, bullying, gangbanging, self-mutilation, drug abuse, eating disorders, depression, suicide, mass shootings, and so on reflect the deep dissatisfaction of bureaucratically instructed youth.

Abstract Since 1999, Outward Bound Australia has been delivering a nationally recognised training program developed under the umbrella of a restructured Vocational Education and Training Sector in Australia. As both a trainer and employer, Outward Bound Australia provides a well-integrated package of on and off-the-job experience that supports the achievement of graduates from a 12 month internship program. This paper reflects upon the motivations for change in the industry and the experience of integrating vocational education in the workplace.

14 An Outdoor Education Body of Knowledge (Non-Refereed ARTICLE) - Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Auteur : Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Genre : Éducation
Is there a problem with outdoor education? In his call for papers for this special themed edition of the Australian Journal of Outdoor Education, Glyn Thomas (2005a) suggested that outdoor education suffered from a 'kind of identity crisis'. Both authors of this paper are teachers of a range of subjects in the secondary school system in Victoria, Australia, including the senior Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) subject Outdoor and Environmental Studies (OES). For both of us the ruminations and deliberations of academics is of interest, but usually not particularly relevant. However, Thomas' call, comes at a significant time for us, as we struggle to maintain the OES subject in the face of budget constraints, increasing school administration pressures, and parental and student misperceptions.

15 Knowing Our Place: A Perspective on the Contribution of Outdoor Education and Its Relationship with the Outdoor Recreation Industry (Non-Refereed ARTICLE) - Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Auteur : Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Genre : Éducation
The outdoor education profession and outdoor recreation industry in Australia are considered small fields if one refers to the number of members that make up the state and territory outdoor recreation and education associations. As a result there are regular calls for collaboration with a diverse range of stakeholders to ensure that, as members of the professional outdoor community, we have some influence on the decisions that impact upon our members. Beyond collaboration there have been various attempts to merge outdoor associations to add weight of numbers to the cause of advocating for greater opportunities for safe and sustainable outdoor experiences. In the late 1990s the possibility of a merger between the Victorian Outdoor Education Association (VOEA) and the Camping Association of Victoria (CAV--now the Australian Camps Association) was suggested, debated and dismissed (Nikolajuk

16 The Relative Frequency of Faculty's Publications: A Content Analysis of Refereed Business Journals (Report) - Academy of Educational Leadership Journal
Auteur : Academy of Educational Leadership Journal
Genre : Éducation
INTRODUCTION There can be no doubt a sure way to dredge up controversy among a faculty is to drum up talk on evaluating the quality of the refereed journals in which they publish (Shugan, 2003; Uncles, 2004). A faculty member on tenure track, facing an inevitable tenure and promotion committee decision, might shriek in silence a tenure recommendation might be based purely on such subjective judgments (Vokurka, 1996). Sometimes, committees may attempt to rate the quality of journals, in which the tenure applicant has published, by using citation studies, affiliation studies, or perception studies that rank journals by surveying peer opinions (Katerattanakul, Razi, Han, & Kam, 2005; Liner & Amin, 2004). It is no surprise a tenure track faculty member can become paranoid that merely raising reasonable questions might make matters even worse.

Animal-assisted therapy has been used for years to promote human well-being, and has been shown to improve outcomes for people with Autism-spectrum disorders, illnesses, behavioral problems, and poor emotional well-being (Nimer & Lundahl, 2007). Equine-assisted therapies, the use of horses to promote development of skills and behaviors, are used internationally to complement medical intervention for individuals with many disabling conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, emotional disabilities and multiple sclerosis (American Hippotherapy Association, 2007; Debuse, Chandler, & Gibb, 2005; Hammer et al., 2005; North American Riding for the Handicapped Association, 2008; Pichon Riviere, Augustovski, & Colantonio, 2006; Riding for the Disabled Association, 2008; Riding for the Disabled Association of Australia, 2008).

18 From the Tyranny of Distance to the Power of Proximity: Can Australian Workers Trade up in the Lucky Country? the 2011 Stan Kelly Lecture, 10 November 2011 (Non-Refereed Article) - Economic and Labour Relations Review
Auteur : Economic and Labour Relations Review
Genre : Entreprise et management
Introduction Imagine a country that is inward looking and rarely notices the world beyond its own borders. Imagine a country with double-digit inflation and unemployment and a poor record of economic growth. Workers and their bosses are at each other's throats, the country leads the world for working days lost due to industrial disputes and productivity (and how to improve it) is rarely talked about. Industry shelters behind prohibitive tariff walls (thinking only of the domestic market), the exchange rate is fixed every morning by officials of the central bank and the Treasury and international trade is an afterthought. Shop hours are regulated, domestic monopolies run most industries, and foreign entrants (in areas such as banking) are prohibited. Tax is high (and therefore evaded and avoided); expenditure untargeted and budgets in deficit. There are few foreign tourists, or many fo

19 Links Between Kayaking, Fear, Confidence and Competence: Factors Affecting Women's Participation in Paddling in a Tertiary Outdoor Education Course (Non-Refereed ARTICLE) - Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Auteur : Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Genre : Éducation
Abstract Our research explored why some females were expressing anger, frustration and lack of connectedness when learning paddling in a university unit called "River Environments." Our review of the literature on motivation theory suggested that we need to teach females differently, simply because they often learn differently than males. We attempted to determine if there was a connection between boat design and feelings of paddling satisfaction, but we discovered a range of deeper issues. We discovered that fear, particularly social fear, is a powerful inhibitor of risk taking and learning, that it affects confidence and hence competence, and that this was more noticeable in female paddlers. We also concluded that females may require: different learning experiences and instruction to optimise their learning outcomes; a path that reflects a more gradual and repetitive sequence with cons

20 Learning About the Outdoors (Non-Refereed PAPER.) - Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Auteur : Australian Journal of Outdoor Education
Genre : Éducation
I built my first kayak when I was sixteen and paddled straight out into stormy seas with no buoyancy or much in the way of safety equipment. Sometimes nature takes care of its innocents and I was blessed with enough time to figure out solutions to most of the key problems. What I needed to know to avoid trouble was basic boating knowledge, but I was kayaking in such an information void, that I invented almost everything I did. I compensated for a lack of kayaking skill by choosing a fairly stable 26-inch beam kayak and that worked until I started paddling narrower boats. What I was learning fast, were the seamanship skills. I soon figured out how to navigate because when I got things wrong I had to go back or land in a place I had not intended. I learned about weather and waves by pushing my luck in all sorts of conditions. I figured out about ocean turbulence by paddling solo through Ki
