"To Lecture or Let Go: A comparative analysis of student speech outlines from teacher-centered and learner-centered classrooms" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 93rd Annual Convention, TBA, Chicago, IL, Nov 15, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2019-09-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p192420_index.html>

Abstract: College classrooms are moving away from traditional teacher-centered lecture approaches toward learner-centered strategies. Little empirical evidence exists assessing the utility of such pedagogies. This exploratory study examined the content and structure of student speech outlines from lecture-based classes and learner-centered classes. This examination suggests that students in learner-centered environments create better outlines than students in lecture-based classrooms. Future studies should test the generalizability of these results on larger student populations and across the curriculum.

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine if a relationship exists between students’ motives for communicating with their instructors and their reasons for visiting a communication center as well as their help-seeking behaviors. Seventy-eight undergraduate students were surveyed following a visit to a southeastern, public university’s communication center. First, a correlation analysis was run to determine the relationship between students’ reported reasons for visiting the communication center and motives for communicating with their instructors. Significant correlations were discovered between 1) students who went to the center for bonus points or class credit and had relational motives for communicating with instructors and; 2) students who went to the center to improve their speaking skills and had functional, excuse, or sycophancy motives for communicating with instructors. Second, a regression analysis was conducted on the data to determine whether students’ reported reasons for visiting the communication center and motives for communicating with their instructors would predict general help-seeking behaviors. The model was significant. Implications for communication center research are discussed.

Abstract: Senior centers are familiar and widespread local institutions in the United States, whose goals include providing a wide range of services to a diverse population of senior citizens. It has been well-documented that social networks play a substantial role in improving the health and well-being of older adults, and it has further been shown that senior centers are prime settings in which to foster and strengthen such networks. Research has also demonstrated that attachment and connection to the broader community are critical to older adults' well-being, yet these factors have not been well considered in the context of senior centers. Also, while many studies have reported on demographic factors that predicting participation in senior centers, few or none have directly asked seniors questions pertaining to their satisfaction with senior center. By considering these and the aforementioned elements, the findings from this study highlight important associations between a number of different variables—demographic characteristics, participation frequency, participation type, satisfaction with center, feelings of support from the center, and feelings of support from the community—filling in gaps in the current literature and building knowledge as to how older adults’ mental, physical, and social well-being can be improved through participation at their local senior centers.
