- ItemOpen AccessSupporting Continuous Professional Development of Early Childhood Educators: Comparing and Contrasting Jamaican and Canadian Experiences(Bow Valley College, 2020-04-01) Clarke, Velrose Spence; DeHaan, RhoenaContinued Professional Development (PD) for Early Childhood Educators (ECE) is of the utmost importance mainly because of its impact on education and the potential of the dynamic universal changes that is sometimes latent in its manifestation. This research project compares PD experiences and needs in Calgary (Canada) and Jamaica, assists in bridging the existing gap between theory and practice, and promotes partnerships. The project design includes two phases: During the first phase, surveys and interviews were conducted to identify the PD needs and experiences, and in the second phase we addressed the gaps and needs through workshop implementation in Jamaica. The research confirms and substantiates our beliefs that meaningful PD positively influences professional growth and best practices which occur when participants are given the opportunity to provide input in the decision making processes with ongoing support from owners, administrators and governments. Additionally, our project recommends that PD can be sustained through established learning communities and partnerships amongst colleagues in Calgary and Jamaica.

- ItemOpen AccessReporting Workplace Bullying Research(2021-05-30) Sharples, KerryMy research project explores the existing policies, procedures, protocols, and technologies Alberta post-secondary institutions use to report workplace bullying. Current analysis shows little research has been conducted to these specifications in the field and there is much to explore, from user experience to reporting effectiveness. Workplace bullying is an ever-prevalent issue (Farmer, 2011) which has both intense and adverse effects on both the employee, management, and the institution. To help guide my research, I used the Technology Acceptance Model and Constructivism as theoretical frameworks. The research was conducted using case study as its methodology and drawing on aspects from meta-synthesis; qualitative research enabled me to focus on the “what and why”. I researched eight post-secondary institutes within Alberta, as well as engaged with three participants from a post-secondary institute from different backgrounds to bring more meaning and insight to my research.

- ItemOpen AccessSocial innovation on the ground: Accessible and evidence-based tools for social innovators(2021-09-14) Bow Valley CollegeIn keeping with the findings and recommendations of the research study, Social Innovation on the Ground: Accessible and Evidence-Based Tools for Social Innovators—in particular the awareness of the challenges and needs of people working on the front lines of social innovation—this resource was developed to help with the planning and development of social innovation. A learning module comprised of three units was created. The units are intended as appropriate for part of a college curriculum, as a continuing education course, as a professional development opportunity for innovation staff, or simply for individuals who are interested in learning the “how to” of social innovation. The three units are entitled: I. Building Effective Social Innovation Ideas II. Project Planning III. Successfully Communicating and Building Relationships. The contents of the units build upon findings from the research and seek to address its conclusions. Units were designed by members of the research team along with curriculum development experts from Bow Valley College’s Teaching & Learning Enhancement unit.

- ItemOpen AccessUnderstanding Student Experiences with Commercial Contract Cheating and Other Outsourcing Behaviours(2022-09) Ferguson, Corrine; Toye, Margaret; Carver, Christina; Pictin, Tonisha; Eaton, Sarah Elaine; Boisvert, SherylPurpose: The primary goal of the project was to better understand post-secondary student experiences of contract cheating and the stress students encounter while completing their programs. Methods: Survey research methodology, using well-established measures from contract cheating research and research on the stress process were used to collect closed and open ended responses from career program learners in a community college in Alberta. Responses were collected in Survey Monkey, an online survey tool, from 916 participants in October 2021. Results: Survey results overall indicated student involvement in contract cheating. Differences between commercial contract cheating and sharing behaviour were revealed. High levels of stress were reported, and type of stress varied across contract cheating behaviour. Implications: The results of this study add to the continually growing body of knowledge of academic integrity in Canada. They will also expand on knowledge of the stress students experience and the personal and social resources they have access to while completing their programs and how this may relate to contract cheating.
- ItemOpen AccessRGO Library & Learning Commons Usability Testing October 2022: Findings and Recommendations(2023-01-13) Allard, Ethan; Mucz, DaveIn October 2022, the RGO Library & Learning Commons conducted usability testing focusing on the functionality and ease of use of the website and online catalog. Recruitment for testing was done via advertising on Bow Valley College TV, campus bulletin boards, and in the student newsletter. Students, staff, and faculty members were invited to participate in testing; eight students expressed interest. Feedback from the participants was largely positive, and most tasks were completed successfully by all learners. Issues were mostly relating to visibility of certain options and redundancy on the main library page. Quick fixes that could be made to the library homepage were identified and implemented. The next step will be to monitor the effects of the changes already made and to plan more significant changes.
