STUDENT ENGAGEMENT IN ADULT LEARNING
Student engagement occurs when "students make a psychological investment in learning. They try hard to learn what school offers. They take pride not simply in earning the formal indicators of success (grades), but in understanding the material and incorporating or internalizing it in their lives (Newmann, 1992)."
Engagement involves the active participation of students in the classrooms as well as in the teaching process. It has also been described as the willingness of to participate in routine school activities, such as attending class, submitting required work, and following teachers' directions in class.
All these point to one thing the teaching process can be a very “tedious and boring one”!. So it’s important that we find creative ways to actively involve the students.
If the regular teaching style can be “tedious and boring” to the young ones, how about if you are having to teach adults. Teaching adults can be much more tasking and requires more efforts on the part of the teacher.
Adults easily get uninterested (not any fault of theirs) especially when the teacher goes on and on without asking for their inputs or engaging them in discussions. This is because the adult mind has only a few hours for assimilation after which the brain will need to take a rest before it can take in more. It is also a well-known fact that learning by association helps assimilation, so introducing activities outside the subject being taught helps to keep adult students engaged and alert.
Here are few things I do to keep students engaged and interested during my trainings which you could find useful, you can also introduce some of your own; * Start classes informally. One thing I always do in my class is to start introduction with the use of nicknames as this creates an atmosphere of informality and it always works. * Incorporate…...

...Sura 83: Those Who Give Short Measure Trans. M.A.S. Abdel Haleem: In the name of God, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy 1 Woe to those who give short measure, 2 who demand of other people full measure for themselves, 3 but give less than they should when it is they who weigh or measure for others! 4 Do these people not realize that they will be raised up 5 on a mighty Day, 6 a Day when everyone will stand before the Lord of the Worlds? 7 No Indeed! The list of the wicked is in Sijjin–8 what will explain to you what Sijjin is?–9 a clearly numbered list. 10 Woe on that day to the deniers, 11 those who deny the Day of Judgment! 12 Only the evil aggressor denies it: 13 when Our revelations are recited to him, he says: ‘Ancient fables!’ 14 No indeed! Their hearts are encrusted with what they have done. 15 No indeed! On that Day they will be screened off from their Lord, 16 they will burn in Hell, 17 and they will be told, ‘This is what you called a lie.’ 18 No indeed! The list of the truly good is in Illiyin–19 what will explain to you what Illiyyin is?–20 a clearly written list, 21 witnessed by those brought near. 22 The truly good will live in bliss, 23 seated on couches, gazing around. 24 You will recognize on their faces the radiance of bliss. 25 They will be served a sealed nectar, 26 its seal [perfumed with] fragrant herb–let those who strive, strive for this–27 mixed with the water of Tasnim, 28 a spring from which those brought near will drink. 29 The wicked......

... That is, how does the reward for bearing more risk in terms of stock price change in recessionary times? Write the implied required return on your charts next to the values of beta. Then compare the charts with the one from problem 23 of chapter 8. d. Does the inclusion of beta and the CAPM really make management's planning job any less intuitive?

...The first thing that most new users shifting from Windows find confusing is navigating the Linux file system. The Linux file system functions differently than the Windows file system. I will compare and contrast the differences of both and takes you through the layout input/output systems of both. In Linux, there is only a single hierarchal directory structure. Everything begins from the root directory which is represented by the symbol /, which then expands into sub-directories. Windows includes various partitions and then directories under those partitions; Linux places all the partitions underneath the root directory by mounting them in specific directories. In contrast, Windows uses the letter C as its root directory. In Windows, various partitions are detected during the boot process and are assigned a drive letter. Under Linux, the system must mount partitions and devices during the boot process; otherwise it will be unaware of its existence. This might not seem very convenient to provide access to your partitions or devices, but it offers greater flexibility. This is known as the unified file system in Linux which offers several advantages over the Windows file system. For example, let's examine the /usr directory. This directory resides off the root directory and contains most of the system executables. With the Linux file system, you can choose to mount it off another partition or even off another machine over a network connection. The underlying system......

...agree is the judges’ decision to allow the medical staff to slowly deteriorate the victims health with medicinal procedures. The medical staff and hospital should not be allowed to slowly kill a victim by giving them medicine. It’s against the constitutional law. SHOARS v. EPSON AMERICA, INC. High-Tech Monitoring Accoring to the book, Americans are protected by privacy laws to a certain degree. The federal Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 regulates the government's use of wiretapping to listen to telephone conversations. The Privacy Protection Act of 1974 and the Freedom of Information Act require the government to be fair when it collects, uses, and discloses private information. Sometimes, however, people file lawsuits saying the government has gone too far with an investigation. That was the case in Watkins v. United States (1957). In the 1950s, Congress was investigating communist activity in the United States. Communists were members of a political party that wanted to overthrow the federal government. John T. Watkins, a labor union official, was called before Congress to testify about known communists. Watkins refused to identify people who used to be, but no longer were, members of the Communist party. Watkins was convicted of contempt of Congress for refusing to answer such questions, but the Supreme Court reversed his conviction. The Court said Congress does not have unlimited power to investigate the private lives......

...comparing GBI scores across brands, it is possible to determine whether the holistic global impressions affect companies equally. Calculating a positioning index that compares BSA with GBI scores, we can determine whether a company’s rat- ing on an item is driven more by the BSA or the GBI component. For example, to assess the influence of halo for the “performance” product quality item for Toyota, the positioning index would be as follows: Table 1. Positioning Index Scores Positioning index = [BSAToyota Performance/ GBIToyota] 100. Argentina China Spain United States Argentina China Spain United States PQ1 4 102 18 PQ2 43 53 56 PQ3 41 17 97 PQ4 28 23 96 PQ5 21 129 17 PQ1 57 41 34 PQ2 57 34 44 PQ3 62 1 43 PQ4 57 3 66 PQ5 83 82 12 PQ1 11 91 26 PQ2 70 32 52 PQ3 70 35 68 PQ4 43 16 146 PQ5 21 35 152 PQ1 25 51 73 PQ2 15 31 98 PQ3 55 11 50 PQ4 56 3 60 PQ5 87 4 1 B.

Even when the company is perceived to be greater than the competition on an attribute (in relation to the absolute attribute ratings) but the positioning index is low (less than 100), the company’s position is vulnera- ble because the positive......

...covered by a union contract. That steady decline began around 1979 and continued through 1995, but the sharpest drop was in the early 1980s. By the early 1990s, the impact of these factors on wages diminished to varying degrees. For example, foreign competition and deregulation continued to influence the size of wage adjustments, but the difference in union and nonunion wages in the affected industries by then better reflected the new competitive environment. From March 1991-94, union wage increases were, on average, larger than nonunion ones; but from March 1994-1996, nonunion workers had larger increases. However, throughout the 1990s, the sizes of increases for both the union and nonunion sectors were not as large as in either 1975-83, or 1983-91 periods. Furthermore, the union or nonunion advantages in wage increases were not as consistent across industries. Although it is not possible to make direct comparison of wage changes between unions and nonunion workers for detailed industry groups, such as construction, because of insufficient sample size, it is possible to make broad comparisons for some industry groups using data on average wage changes from the major bargaining settlements programs. If average wage changes from the major bargaining settlements program were lower than the change for all workers in the industry group, this would suggest that nonunion increases were larger than union increases. Average wage changes in collective bargaining......

...workarounds that reduce efficiency and increase risk. It is recognized that the current infrastructure does not provide an adequate platform for future market development, and that without reform, the development of the markets will be held back. Five areas of weakness are recognized, namely: • Duplication of clearing and settlement infrastructure at DSE and CSE; • Lack of DVP for indirect market participants; • The need for participants to provide cash and securities 2 days ahead of settlement date; • The payment of cash dividends from issuers to end investors, rather than flowing through the depository, causing delay, uncertainty and inefficiency; and • Lack of 'straight through processing' (STP), leading to manual rekeying of orders and file trans‐mission, and increasing operational risk. 2.3.
