Nursing Home as a Resource in Teaching Courses on Aging by Chandra Mehrotra( Book )
2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
With the increased percentage of older adults in the population, demand for professionals and paraprofessionals who possess both technical disciplinary competence and the experiential training necessary to work with older adults has increased. A program at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota, allows students preparing for a career in gerontology to undertake both cognitive and experiential learning activities. This approach enables them to develop a better understanding of the aging process and also fosters positive attitudes towards the aged. Cognitive learning is achieved by attending lectures, reading books, journals, and other materials, and through conducting library research. Experiential learning, which is an integral part of the courses, takes place through participation in group or individual projects in an applied setting. The Benedictine Health Center (bhc), a health care facility located on the college campus, provides students with a variety of experiential learning opportunities. In addition to these opportunities, cooperative relationships have developed betwen the college faculty and the bhc staff. Students have assisted the faculty in an Andrus Foundation study examining the social interactions of bhc residents and day service adults with students, children, staff, and others. Students also conduct internships, hold part-time jobs, and do mini-projects at the bhc. Faculty invite bhc staff and residents to serve as speakers in their classes. College courses in gerontology and other disciplines are offered at the bhc, and gerontology faculty provide in-service training to new employees at the bhc. (Author/BL)

Handling Social Interactions: Teaching Learning Principles to Special Education Children by Chandra Mehrotra( Book )

Eight mainstreamed students with specific learning disabilities (ld) and five with general ld (8-14 years old) were trained through films, role playing techniques and token reinforcement to apply learning principles to improve the quality of their social interactions with their nonhandicapped peers. Results of observations of Ss' interactions before and after training indicated statistically significant improvements in the quality of Ss' social interactions, specifically, changes in negative nonverbal and positive verbal peer initiatives, Ss' response of reinforcing positive contacts, and peers' positive verbal and nonverbal responses.

Measuring up educational assessment challenges and practices for psychology ( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Psychology teachers and administrators in high school through graduate programs are repeatedly challenged by parents, politicians, and school reformers to provide solid evidence that their instruction is both effective and demonstrative. Likewise administrators and teachers want to look honestly and critically at their courses and programs and measure of the learning in educational settings consistently and accurately. Ultimately, it comes to this: Are we doing a good job of educating our students? [This book] tackles this issue head-on. This practical volume digs deep and provides the most up-to-date thinking and concrete practices of experienced scientist-educators. Using the information provided in this volume, educators will be able to demonstrate learning, track and measure student achievement, and gauge quality of instruction. By provoking awareness of psychological outcome measurement and applying it to this arena, the editors have made a superb contribution to promoting quality at all levels of education in psychology. -Dust jacket
Giving Psychology Away Through Technology-Based Distance Instruction by Chandra Mehrotra( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This paper outlines key features of good distance education, drawing upon principles for good practice in undergraduate education and recorded experiences with distance learning programs in a number of content areas. The first section defines distance education and provides a historical perspective. Five interrelated phenomena that have accompanied the rapid growth of information technology to promote widespread use of distance learning are described in the second section, including the emergence of lifelong learning, learning centered instruction, providing access, rapid advances in technology and the psychology of learning, and increased interest in part-time study. The third section offers recommendations for good distance education, and the last section summarizes the following lessons learned as a result of offering both undergraduate and graduate courses via distance learning: include adequate details in the syllabus; break the course into modules; conduct periodic assessment; encourage contact between students and faculty; and promote interaction between students. One figure presents a historical perspective of the phases of distance education. (Dls)

Strengthening Undergraduate Education in Aging through Faculty Enhancement by Chandra Mehrotra( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
An assessment of a psychology faculty enhancement program which provided up-to-date information on aging was done. In 1989/90 the program involved a 2-week institute for 25 teachers from two-year and four-year colleges, providing them with consultation both during and after the institute, and maintaining contact with them through reunions and newsletters. A 1-week follow-up institute was held in 1991 and attended by 18 of the original group. Assessment was conducted by monitoring all of the activities, by collecting data on participants' knowledge and attitudes before and after the institute, and by administering evaluation questionnaires at the end of each institute. The participants showed a statistically significant change on a knowledge test and on three attitude scales. They also rated the program as a whole very highly. Responses on the follow-up questionnaire indicated that as a result of participating in this program they had developed a stronger sense of the value of incorporating aging in the curriculum, had read more about aging, had incorporated new material in their courses, and had become more involved in aging-related activities. In addition, a large number of participants had maintained contact with distinguished visiting professors and with colleagues from other schools. The program received support from the National Science Foundation. (JB)

Independent Study Courses for Non-Traditional Students by Chandra Mehrotra( Book )
1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The Guided Independent Study Program, an individually paced, master-oriented teaching method for serving undergraduate and graduate nontraditional students at the College of St. Scholastica, Minnesota, is described. A number of independent study courses in psychology, gerontology, and education have been offered to students who cannot come to the campus to attend regular class meetings. The approach is based on psychology of learning and individual differences. The course materials are divided into 10 to 12 relatively small units of study called instructional projects. The information provided for each instructional project includes: a descriptive title, purpose, behavioral objectives, evaluative criteria, learning resources, and competency exercises. Competency exercises provide immediate feedback regarding their progress. After completing half of the course, students take a retention test before beginning the work on the second. The course grade is based on the competency exercises, assignments, and retention tests, which are administered by the student's supervisor or other representative. Students maintain contact with the instructor through phone calls and letters. The program has been found to be a viable mode of meeting educational needs of teachers, service providers, and other nontraditional students. This approach is appropriate for courses in which the material to be learned is structured in a definite hierarchy with well-defined objectives, is largely available from written materials, and is amenable to individual learning. Its features of self-pacing, mastery learning, and immediate feedback make it especially attractive to nontraditional students. (Author/SW)
