34. Quality Comes Alive: An Interdisciplinary Student Team’s Quality Improvement Experience in Learning by Doing— Healthcare Education Case Study

by Rosa K. Hand, Mary A. Dolansky, E. Erin Hanahan, Vinothini M. Sundaram, and Nancy Tinsley

This Quality Approaches in Higher Education article is authored by Rosa K. Hand, Mary A. Dolansky, E. Erin Hanahan, Vinothini M. Sundaram, and Nancy Tinsley. This healthcare education case study was conducted at Case Western Reserve University. Quality Improvement (QI) and patient safety are recognized as important aspects of medical and nursing curricula; however, little literature has discussed implementing an interdisciplinary approach to these topics. Literature from all disciplines also lacks the perspective of students on methods for teaching these topics. This paper describes an interdisciplinary graduate-level course on quality improvement which incorporates real-life implementation of a QI project in a clinical setting. One student team’s experience in the clinical QI project is presented as a case study to demonstrate how the tools taught in the course were implemented in the field project. In addition, challenges faced by the students and student reactions to the course are discu

35. Promising Practices for Engaging Student Veterans

by Michael J. Kirchner, Lia Coryell, Susan M. Yelick Biniecki

This Quality Approaches in Higher Educaiton article is authored by by Michael J. Kirchner and Lia Coryell of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Susan M. Yelich Biniecki of Kansas State University. Service members transitioning into post-secondary schooling face a new, unfamiliar challenge from previous battles. Student veteran graduation rates are being questioned as are their education benefits. Across the country, student veteran organizations and resource centers are being established, though their contribution on campus for military-students needs to be explored. At the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, two graduate students, with support from their academic advisor, began a grassroots operation that led to the formation of a student veteran organization, a military and veterans’ resource center, and professional development opportunities for academic staff and faculty to learn more about student veterans on campus. As this paper suggests, the more engaged student veteran

36. Research to Practice: Identifying Best Practices for STEM Intervention Programs for URMs

by Raina Dyer-Barr

This Quality Approaches in Higher Education article is authored by Raina Dyer-Barr, of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Focusing on STEM intervention programs aimed at increasing the recruitment and retention of minority undergraduates traditionally underrepresented in STEM, this paper explores the perspectives of STEM Intervention Programs (SIP) administrators. Fifty-six SIP administrators from 10 large public, research universities were interviewed on what “works” to enable the successful administration of these programs, especially in terms of how they aid in the recruitment and retention of historically and traditionally under-represented minority (URM) undergraduates in STEM. The findings suggest that for the SIP administrators in this study, exhibiting a focus on student-centeredness, community building, and collaboration as well as sustaining these efforts is an integral part of effectively administering intervention programs targeting the recruitment and retention of URM

37. Curriculum-Evolving Case Study: Using Zombie Theme for Introduction to Operations Research Course

by Ivan G. Guardiola

This Quality Approaches in Higher Education article is authored by Ivan G. Guardiola of the Missouri University of Science and Technology. Increasing student engagement and participation as well as improving knowledge retention are important to student success/achievement in any mathematically rigorous course.This paper presents the development of a curriculum-evolving project that seeks to achieve higher levels of student engagement, learning, and critical thinking skills. Specifically, the pop-culture topic of “zombies” was used for the purpose of increasing student development with regard to operations research tools and methods. The goal was to develop a semester long project that was highly correlated to topics covered in the course in an effort for students to demonstrate the implementation of the tools and methods in a systematic way to increase knowledge attainment. A student survey was utilized to quantify the students’ perception of the project and the results are presented.

40. Common Sense at Its Core

by Schmidt, Megan

America prides itself on educating all students. But that doesn’t mean all students receive the same education. Where you grow up, your family’s means, local politics and the quality of your teachers and district programs are just a few factors that influence your education and your opportunities in life. Most people agree that all children deserve to receive an education that will prepare them for college, work and life. But they can’t seem to agree on the best method to make that happen.
