Conceptualizing Positive and Negative Experiences and Responses in the Basic Communication Course

Conceptualizing Positive and Negative Experiences and Responses in the Basic Communication Course

Further, it is unclear how students communicatively respond to these challenges. Although Cohen’s study explored students’ perceptions of the basic course, even fewer studies have explored how students respond to positive and negative experiences in the basic course. In a recent study, Hosek, Frisby, Waldbuesser, and Rubinsky (2016) identified general academic challenges (not specific to the basic course) and the coping mechanisms students used in response to these challenges. Connecting their work to the current investigation, students in their study who experienced higher levels of anxiety and communication apprehension (CA) tended to respond by avoiding situations that required oral communication (e.g., the basic communication course), and similar to other research findings, were less likely to seek support from peers, advisors, or teachers (McCroskey, Booth-Butterfield, & Payne, 1989). Students who are struggling may visit office hours (Jones, 2008), seek support services (Bandura, 1977), or leave the university setting altogether.

Many solutions have been proposed to deal with the negative aspects of CMPs and take advantage of the positive

SERGEY BLAGODUROV and ALEXANDRA FEDOROVA , Simon Fraser University MANUEL PRIETO , Complutense University of Madrid Chip multicore processors (CMPs) have emerged as the dominant architecture choice for modern comput- ing platforms and will most likely continue to be dominant well into the foreseeable future. As with any system, CMPs offer a unique set of challenges. Chief among them is the shared resource contention that results because CMP cores are not independent processors but rather share common resources among cores such as the last level cache (LLC). Shared resource contention can lead to severe and unpredictable perfor- mance impact on the threads running on the CMP. Conversely, CMPs offer tremendous opportunities for mulithreaded applications, which can take advantage of simultaneous thread execution as well as fast inter thread data sharing. Many solutions have been proposed to deal with the negative aspects of CMPs and take advantage of the positive. This survey focuses on the subset of these solutions that exclusively make use of OS thread-level scheduling to achieve their goals. These solutions are particularly attractive as they require no changes to hardware and minimal or no changes to the OS. The OS scheduler has expanded well beyond its original role of time-multiplexing threads on a single core into a complex and effective resource manager. This article surveys a multitude of new and exciting work that explores the diverse new roles the OS scheduler can successfully take on.

A qualitative study of UK academic role: positive features, negative aspects and associated stressors in a mainly teaching focused university

A qualitative study of UK academic role: positive features, negative aspects and associated stressors in a mainly teaching focused university

Relationships between lecturers and students were identified as positive elements of the role. Academics reported that seeing students progress and develop their knowledge and understanding over the length of a course was a rewarding element of teaching. As Participant 1 expressed it, ''Seeing students develop, begin to understand complex ideas and even to begin to think like psychologists.'' Interviewees were eager to know their students and foster understanding as Participant 9 comments, ''Finding out more about my students, and that moment when the penny drops.'' There was a real sense of enjoying helping students to achieve and become experts in their area. Participant 1 commented, ''With research students they go from students to research colleagues and that is great.'' When students displayed positive attitudes and clearly wanted to learn, academics were more satisfied.

Positive and negative aspects of student involvement on academic achievement

Positive and negative aspects of student involvement on academic achievement

Also seen on a campus, the cartoon of several characters laughing hysterically with a caption of “You want it when?!” is something students in distress should not have to see in any office or facility. These objects may be seen as a teachable moment, but the manner in which they are displayed, in full view of the students, is not the appropriate medium. Positive programming in residence halls or freshmen orientation classes would better serve this population. Collectively, these types of office jokes probably do not add to the positive campus environment institutions believe they are offering their students. Whereas juniors may have overcome these “jokes” and similar institutional barriers, many freshmen may not overcome this situation and instances and interaction like these may contribute, in the end, to a decision to leave campus. Students should not have to see signs or posters discouraging them when they are trying to seek help or are trying to correct a recent problem they have encountered on campus, whether that problem is social or academic.

The positive and negative aspects of fiscal policy in improving the business environment

The positive and negative aspects of fiscal policy in improving the business environment

2 INTRODUCTION The fiscal policy is again the center of attention in the economic circles, since the last several years of active fiscal policies regarding the financial crises. The intensified government spending and reduced taxes had become initial instruments in the battle to prevent further decline in the nation’s GDP levels and even try to neutralize the initial negative impact. Keynes had become once again, since the 1970-ties, in the center of world-wide discussions about the role of the government in the market economy. That active fiscal policy that recommends even accumulation of debt in order to stimulate the economy was applied by number of countries, especially those who already had enough fiscal space to do so. The others with high level of debts were found in uncertain conditions and try to react through monetary policy while in the same time were cutting on some excessive government expenditures and even raising taxes. In the first section of the paper, the attention is set on the instruments of fiscal policy and the potential measures that could contribute for better economic activity. The focus is set on several spending areas and on reducing some taxes in order to support the economy. The second section is analyzing the problem of several EU countries regarding debt sustainability as crucial element that had been used most often as source for getting out of the depression. The third section sets light on the fiscal policy measures taken in Republic of Macedonia which are in favor of improving the business environment.

Positive and Negative Aspects of Australian Higher Education Financing: (a background paper)

Positive and Negative Aspects of Australian Higher Education Financing: (a background paper)

A student enrolling in a course with a premium HECS charge could choose to pay the premium (the extra) up-front, in which case the funds would be retained unconditionally by the university. If, as is likely, the premium is deferred and collected through HECS, the adjustment to a university's funding could then be handled relatively simply through current operating grant arrangements. DETYA would compare the expected HECS liability of each student (based on ‘standard’ HECS) with the actual liability recorded in each year of a student’s enrolment. Where the amount is greater, because premium HECS has been levied, the university's operating grant would be increased by a corresponding amount in the subsequent year. The government would receive this back through HECS.

Moroccan parents caring for children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis: positive and negative aspects of their experiences

Moroccan parents caring for children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis: positive and negative aspects of their experiences

burden is often added to stress related to the daily assist- ance and responsibility against a person losing their au- tonomy, as it was described by Toupin et al. [17]. The lack of family support was another predominant CRA negative dimension in our study (Table 4). Indeed, the role of caregiver can have a major impact on family as a whole, and lack of family support may produce a feeling of isolation and abandonment and resignation within the family. Overall, increased demands of caregiv- ing and potential for low levels of support may contrib- ute to high rates of psychological symptoms in mothers of children with JIA [10,18,19]. On the other hand, this negative aspect of subjective caregiver burden is both a perception of the caregiver and perhaps a powerful fac- tor in preventing adequate care for the child. It seems to have external effects on the family unit, making it quite different from the other dimensions, which appear more likely to be resulting from the disease affecting the chil- dren and mothers, then the parents’ perceptions.

Alliances for Knowledge: MOOCs to Create New Professional Skills in a New Model of University (Positive and Negative Aspects)

Alliances for Knowledge: MOOCs to Create New Professional Skills in a New Model of University (Positive and Negative Aspects)

emerging within our institutions; the criticisms to the university advanced 15 years ago were "waiting ideas'': waiting for the new Web and for a new generation of students able to effectively put in question the old model of university. The university in the globalized and the interconnected knowledge society reached a turning point; we are at a crossroads between stagnation and renewal, between atrophy and renaissance. At present, however, there are very interesting facts going on worldwide; in some prestigious universities a new idea of global education is starting from the bottom; many universities are tearing down their ivory towers and are using the Internet, the most powerful platform in history to make their contents available in the Web. Lately, in the United States as well as in Europe, the “Knowledge Alliances” and the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are emerging. This paper is aimed at analyzing the MOOC’s phenomenon in the current setting, focusing attention on the role that the University has to play in the knowledge society (section I). In the first part of the work we are going to highlight MOOCs potentials as well as their limits, which are linked, in particular, to their psycho-pedagogic models, to their course assessment systems as well as to the organizational models of the virtual structures aiming at carrying on educational activities based on MOOCs (section II). In section III, it is described the change that the Internet-based technological infrastructure can bring about to the organizational and psycho-pedagogic models of the University of the XXI Century. More specifically, the value resulting from the global networking of the best universities aimed at creating international university consortia aimed at democratizing the access to knowledge is described. The study of concrete case is presented: Consorzio NETTUNO, a consortium born in Italy from the best national and International universities and companies. Some aspects of the educational activity and of the blended (face-to-face and distance) psycho-pedagogic model – adopted by the partnering universities - are highlighted. Then it is described (section IV) the shift to the International Telematic University UNINETTUNO, which implements distance teaching and learning processes in 5 languages on the Internet and whose organizational model is analyzed, and that is developed in national and international Technological Poles, set up in several public and private institutions: universities, companies, research and educational centers. The Technological Poles set up in conflict and war areas such as Iraq, Egypt and other countries of the Arab World, play an important role. In section V the results of the most significant research project that allowed to indentify the complex interrelations existing among communication technologies, cognitive processes,

Aspects of positive and negative mental health in young people, aged 16-29 years : measurements, determinants, and interventions

One of the most well-known contributors to the research field of identity is Erik Homburger Erikson. Similar to van Gennep he illustrated the identity formation as a process of slow progress into the growth of ego. During the course of development, the identifications of childhood are gradually substituted by a new formation which is larger than the sum of its parts. Erikson pointed to the urgency of solving every critical step in the developmental stage, otherwise the individual would face what he called psychosocial crises later on in adulthood and coined the concept of Identity versus Role Confusion (49, 57). James Marcia expanded Erikson’s model and defined four identity statuses: identity diffusion, identity foreclosure, identity moratorium and identity achievement. Diffusion refers to a status where individuals who do not have stable commitments to goals and values; foreclosure is a status where no personal choices have been made, but have been chosen by authority figures; moratorium is a delay, a process of exploration where no definite commitments have been made. Finally, identity achievement means a status where individuals have explored and committed themselves to self-chosen values and goals (58, 59). A meta- analysis of 124 studies on identity status change during adolescence and young adulthood concluded that large mean proportions of samples had not reached an identity achievement in young adulthood, i.e. up to 25 years. During the transition, the mean proportion of those adolescents who made progressive identity changes was 36%, contrasted to 15% who made regressive changes and 49% who stayed stable (60). In a Swedish study of 136 young adults aged 24-26 years, women were more likely to have reached an identity achievement after a process of active exploration while men to a greater extent lacked identity-defining commitments (61).

Of course, nothing rules out using some combination of the two strategies. Costs and side effects. Negative rates and a higher inflation target both have costs and side effects. As I discussed in my earlier post, negative rates can create problems for money market funds, banks, and other financial institutions, costs that would have to be managed if rates remained negative for very long. These concerns are legitimate, since effective

Second Wave Positive Psychology: Exploring the Positive–Negative Dialectics of Wellbeing

Second Wave Positive Psychology: Exploring the Positive–Negative Dialectics of Wellbeing

Moreover, in PTG, distress and growth may not simply be co-present, but in some ways co-dependent. Consider the possibility of altered life philosophies and priorities: renewed appreciation of life is often founded upon the existentially challenging recognition of the fragility and fleetingness of life. It has even been argued that many character strengths cannot be cultivated – or at least only to a limited extent – without a person experiencing suffering and hardship (Wong, 1995). As such, PTG, and flourishing more generally, is not only co-valenced, but demonstrates the ‘principle of complementarity,’ i.e., that wellbeing depends upon a complex balance and harmonisation of positive and negative. Of course, one does not need to suffer trauma to be able to appreciate this point; it is also true of arguably the most elevated of human experiences – love.

Study 2: Los Angeles Ballot Proposition Campaign Data and Protocols Study 2 was conducted in Los Angeles, California, where a different nonprofit organization targeted minority voters of all adult ages in an effort to boost support for two statewide ballot propositions. One ballot proposition aimed at relaxing the “three-strikes” law, by making it so that only a violent offense on the “third strike” would qualify for a life sentence. The other proposition would have required that large companies pay at least 80% of employees’ health insurance. Study 2 differs from Study 1 in a number of important ways. First, the negative message focuses exclusively on losses and costs, while the positive frame only focuses on gains and benefits. In this way, Study 2 is more consistent with the sorts of frames used in laboratory experiments, especially those in psychology that find that negative frames are more persuasive than positive frames even when both frames advocate the same result (cf. Levin et al., 1998, pp. 167-178). Second, Study 2 investigates the impact of framing on voting preferences with respect to a ballot proposition. In this way, Study 2 mini mizes the confounding influence of partisan and image cues that may be present in studies of candidate vote choice. Finally, Study 2 included a control group that received neither a positive nor a negative frame, allowing us to test the overall effectiveness of the frames—not just their effectiveness relative to one another.
